The enterprise SEO platform. Redefined.

Like Tom Hanks, We’ll be Sleepless in Seattle Throughout SMX

SMX Advanced begins tomorrow and we couldn’t be more excited about connecting with search marketers in Seattle again this year! We hope to see you there as well!

Seattle

If you are there, we know you want to make the most of your time in the Pacific Northwest, so – here’s a few tips:

Keep your eyes peeled for Alaska Airlines’ Salmon Thirty Salmon when you land at Sea-Tac, go to Pike Place Market to fuel up at the first Starbucks – and maybe catch a flying fish? – and then head straight to the Bell Harbor Conference Center as to not miss any of the action.

We’d like to see you!

SMX-Advanced

Of course we would like to meet up with you as well. Here are just a few of the highlights we’re most looking forward to next week, where we hope to shake your hand:

Solution Spotlight

Our head of U.S. client development, Christopher Hart, will be doing a Solution Spotlight on Tuesday, June 2 at 11am as part of the Local, Social and Mobile Track, which will be followed by a presentation by GroupM’s Daniel Cristo on “The Social Influencer as a Key Search Marketing Player”, a not too miss session either.

Cocktail Party

6 Must-See Sessions at SMX Advanced

Like many of you, I’m heading to SMX Advanced today and couldn’t be more excited.

SMX Advanced is one of my favorite events each year because the content is catered specifically to experts in the search marketing industry and there are phenomenal network opportunities both during the show and after hours. SMX also always has a packed expo hall where Linkdex will be exhibiting at Booth #27.

Since you’re spoiled for choice and may have a tough time deciding what panels to attend at this event, here are my picks for the 6 Must-See Sessions at SMX Advanced 2015:

1. The Periodic Table of SEO Ranking Factors: 2015 Edition. See Eric Enge, CEO of Stone Temple Consulting and contributor to SEO Now 2015, speak on search ranking factors.

2. Gary Ilyes, Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google, is speaking about both Mobilegeddon as well as in an AMA in which he’ll answer questions with Search Engine Land Founding Editor Danny Sullivan one-on-one, and these sessions are always enlightening.

3. There’s actually a trio of panels on Day 1 you won’t want to miss: Bryson Meunier, SEO Director of Vivid Seats Ltd. and contributor to Mobile SEO Now will be speaking about white hat SEO; Jessica Bowman, founder of SEOinhouse.com, will be speaking about communicating SEO objectives and priorities; and the Wizard of Moz himself, Rand Fishkin, will weigh in on the Future of Search Signals.

4. Conversion Rate Rockstars on Day 2 focuses in part on search funnel and user navigation path sculpting, which is an important focus for us at Momentology and Linkdex. What’s more, speaker Purna Virji, CEO of Purview Marketing, will be featured in a special print edition of Momentology for SMX, which you can pick up at the Linkdex booth.

5. Ask the SEOs, which features MobileMoxie CEO Cindy Krum, who was another Mobile SEO Now contributor, as well as speaker in our recent Mobilegeddon webinar.

6. And, finally: Jenny Halasz, who gave a fine contribution to SEO Now 2015, will speak at the SEO Track on ‘The Latest In Advanced Technical SEO’.

I’ll be on hand at the Linkdex booth and at networking events throughout the conference, including Linkdex’s cocktail party. I look forward to connecting with old and new faces alike!

Better Together: Search and Social

Last week at SMX London I spoke at the session “Better Together: Search and Social”. (See Kirsty talking about her session here). The session was about getting a better grip on how the two, search and social, could work better together to get the best results for you as a brand.

In my part of the session I discussed how understanding the interplay between search and social and the different audiences you are targeting makes for the most effective combination.

The slides (downloadable on Slideshare) you can find below this article, in this post I want to highlight the most important elements of my talk. (more…)
