One hot topic these days is AMP, short for Accelerated Mobile Pages.
At SMX West, Danny Sullivan moderates as Google VP of Engineering Dave Besbris and Paul Shapiro, organic search director at Catalyst and an early user of AMP, give in-depth presentations followed by a Q&A period to cover:
- What AMP is
- Pros and cons of using AMP
- Features of AMP (what it’s good for, what it’s not)
- Technical details about implementing AMP (such as components, analytics tracking, including ads with AMP, etc.)
The three are on stage, and Danny Sullivan introduces us to our presenters by telling us that Dave goes by Bes and that Paul wrote this SEL article: “How to Get Started with Accelerated Mobile Pages.”
Dave “Bes” Besbris is our first speaker. Shapiro says Danny Sullivan told him there is a speaker dress code, so he wore his formal hoodie today. ;)
You may have noticed the change to a SERP where there’s an AMP carousel at the top of the page. The reading experience inside an AMP document is excellent. They didn’t want to reinvent something new, they wanted the experience to be the web.
Is it possible to gain trust online without links? And if so, what are links good for? BCI’s Duane Forrester sets the record straight in this brief but valuable #SMX West 2016 theater presentation.

You’re tuned in to the BCI blog where we’re liveblogging SMX West all week. This is the show’s opening keynote, a demo-heavy presentation by Behshad Behzadi, Principal Engineer, Google Zurich.
Behzadi is the director of conversational search. Danny Sullivan says that Behzadi previously did this presentation at SMX London, and it was a mind-blowing presentation into what’s possible with conversational search. Behzadi has been at Google for 10 years, the first 7 years working on ranking, and the last 3 years working on future tech including Now on Tap.
For what Behshad Behzadi explains is the future of search, including voice search and Now on Tap, read this opening keynote of SMX West.

There’s a word for fear of change: metathesiophobia. The way search, media, technology and consumer behavior change from week to week, it’s not a phobia that SEOs can afford to harbor.
Instead, digital marketers race to get ahead of competition, ahead of algorithm updates, and ahead of upcoming technologies with early adoption and forward-looking strategy.
Where to start? Right here. Bruce Clay is joined by Duane Forrester, David Szetela, Cindy Krum, Eric Enge, Larry Kim, Maddie Cary, Dan Petrovic, Richard Baxter, Marcus Tandler and Andre Alpar in sharing annual predictions for the online marketing industry. What will you do with this foresight into the year ahead?
