In just a few days many of you will be heading to our neck of the woods for SMX East. If you’re attending, we’ll see you there! Pearl, Amanda, and me are all attending, so don’t be shy and say hello. We’d love to meet you.
I’ll be moderating and speaking on What SEO Performance Metrics Are Truly Important? with Vanessa Fox, Ryan Jones, and Rob Bucci. I’ll also be Q&A moderating for Looking Ahead: Local Search In 2013 and Pagination & Canonicalization For The Pros, bring your questions. On Wednesday, October 3rd from noon to 1:30pm, stop by Table 7 to talk with me about Personalization & Search. Amanda will be volunteering on Wednesday in the Issues & Tactics track and Pearl will be doing the same in the Social Media track.
At SMX East, we’ll be rolling out a new style of conference coverage. Stay tuned for that and here’s the schedule, but we’ll be covering everything from the sessions and speakers to attendees and after parties. Get your smile on–you may end up on the site!
