Hold on to your hats, friends, because it’s about that time. Oh yes, another flurry of conferences are upon us and that means it’s time to share our big plans for SMX West with you. Because, oh yes, we have them.
I know I say this every year but SMX West really is one of my favorite shows all year. It’s a smaller show, which means a much more intimate environment to both learn from and hang with everyone’s search favorites. Attending SMX West also means you’re in walking distance of In ‘n Out which, I mean, I’m just saying is a perk.
If you’ll be in town this year for the big show – awesome. You’ll get to hang with both Rhea and myself and grab a Double Double in real-time. If you’re not going – well, that’s a bummer. But as always, you’ll be able to find full liveblogging coverage right here on the blog.
Those attending will want to make sure to catch Rhea speaking on three different sessions this year. And, though I may be totally biased, they’re three awesome session. You’ll see her on Day 2’s Differentiate or Die panel, as well as the SEO Site Clinic happening later that day. On Day 3 she’ll be bringing the fury on the SEO Essentials for Migrating Websites and helping you to avoid a total SEO disaster. What’d I tell you – awesome sessions, right?
While Rhea’s being a rock star on stage, I’ll be doing the liveblogging thing. My full schedule is below.
