While it seems like I just got back from San Francisco and SES, next week I get to jet to New York City for SMX East 2011! While at the show I’ll be curating a new episode of the SEM Synergy podcast to air on WebmasterRadio.fm Thursday at noon Pacific, 3 p.m. Eastern, featuring interviews with conference speakers. And of course, we’re thrilled to bring another conference to the pages of the BCI blog care of near-real-time liveblog coverage.
We think of liveblogging as a service for those in the industry both attending the conference and not attending it alike. For those not at the conference, liveblog coverage is a great way to stay informed of tactics, strategies and news being shared. And if you’re at the conference, liveblog coverage can serve as notes for sessions you attended or might help you decide which session you’ll attend. For instance, if you’re torn between a few sessions happening at the same time, you might rest assured that one of your picks will be available in liveblog form, freeing you up to attend another. However you use it, we’re happy to provide detailed reporting from the front lines of SMX East 2011.

Fresh back from Search Engine Strategies in San Francisco and I’ve got a new appreciation for conference speakers. Why? Well, a few weeks back, Bruce asked if I would take over the expo hall theater presentation for him at SES. Not a big deal, right? About 75 percent of me wanted to say no, but that other 25 percent that was fed up with my fear of public speaking prevailed, and so I signed on.
Once it was over, I attended remaining sessions and even recalled past conferences with a new perspective on speakers. It’s not easy for people to get up there and do what they do –especially if they do it well. It’s certainly an acquired skill that takes practice. But, it got me thinking about the conferences I’ve been to I the past year, some of the things I think make a good speaker and some of the things that even seasoned speakers can improve upon.

Here we are wrapping up SES 2011. It’s been a great time, lots of hard work and a fair amount of fun to go along with it. Here, we have a panel of peeps in the online advertising sector who will assess the current state of play and how the possibility of convergence may be closer than we think.

Have you bought your ticket to SES San Francisco yet? The largest search marketing conference of the year is a work-hard, play-hard event for networking and education. While my inner party girl could argue that bumping elbows and making connections at after-hours events makes your attendance a must, that’s just half the story. There’s truly nothing like soaking in a week of research and experience shared by our industry’s brilliant minds in a face-to-face presentation and Q&A format.
If you’re thinking of attending SES San Francisco in August but are waiting to see how the budget shakes out, this is your lucky day. There are so many ways you can save on an SES San Fran conference pass and Bruce Clay’s SEO training that it almost warrants a flow chart. Instead, you’ll just have to ingest this info overload the old fashioned way: by reading it.
