A First-Timer at SMX West

March 7, 2011

Conference season has begun, and with it comes my very first time attending SMX West, in San Jose. With over 60 different sessions on the books, the schedule is jam-packed with lots of search and social marketing goodness, with a first-class speaker line up including: Matt Cutts, Tristan Walker, Danny Sullivan, Marty Weintraub, and more.

Damn you SMX for having so many good things going on at once. So after much umm-ing and ahh-ing, these are the sessions that I’m planning on attending, plus one mandatory session which I somehow managed to get on the panel of. I’m sure these will provide plenty of food for thought for upcoming blog posts.

Tuesday 8th March

  • Social Signals and Search
  • Google Instant 6 Months Later
  • Getting Lift In Search: How Large Advertisers are Budgeting for 2011
