Two weeks from today I’ll be headed down to New York for SMX East with Rae and Rhea. Wait, actually, we’ll already be there stealing hugs and grabbing beers with some our favorite industry people. Awesome! I didn’t get to experience SMX East properly last year (that whole moving cross country thing), so I’m excited to get a chance at it this year.
If you’ll be at the show, you’ll be able to catch both Rae and Rhea speaking. Rae will be speaking on the Ask the SEOs, Ask the Linkbuilders and Pumping Up WordPress for SEO sessions, while Rhea will be present for Wednesday’s Social Media, Search & Reputation Management panel.
Me? We’ll I’ll be blogging a lovely 15 sessions. You’re welcome.
You’ll find my liveblogging schedule below. I really did do my very best to provide some variety from the sessions that Bruce Clay will be liveblogging. Hopefully I’ll be able to add some extra value because no one likes reading the same session recap twice. There are a lot of great sessions happening during this year’s East show. I’m personally excited for the session on Pumping Up WordPress and the Evening Forum with Danny Sullivan. There’s nothing better than a session filled with Danny Sullivan insight and banter. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn something. It’s magic.

If you haven’t registered for SMX East, there’s still time. Search Marketing Expo is perhaps my personal favorite conference series solely because of the quality of sessions and education that they provide. If you’ll be attending the show make sure you don’t miss the IMNY Charity Party taking place Monday night. Hope to see you there!
