I just got a peek at this month’s SEO Newsletter and I couldn’t help but try to land the scoop. This one’s got something for everyone — chunky tactics for implementing SEO in large organization environments; juicy results of research done by the Bruce Clay Australia team; and just the meatiest bits of SMX Advanced Seattle coverage. Though as LeVar Burton would say, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out some snippets I swiped below, or subscribe to the SEO Newsletter (just over yonder in the blog sidebar) to get the full package delivered to you first thing tomorrow.

SMX Advanced Seattle is arguably one of the top sources of search engine announcements and cutting-edge tactics. So when Susan was suddenly left to liveblog the conference without a number two as originally planned, she went MacGyver on us. The woman put together an impromptu blogger troop of experienced Internet marketers willing to tax their fingers and attention spans for the cause.
Alan Bleiweiss, Dana Lookadoo, and Gil Reich pumped up the liveblog posts with their personalities, astute observations and comprehensive session coverage. They did this with no guidelines, no training and no compensation (other than my eternal gratitude and a healthy bio on the post). However, there’s potential for stress anytime you lend your brand to a guest.

Alternate title: How to Do It Better Next Time
This week we opened up voting for the Small Biz Discovery Contest and we thought it was a good time to talk about mistakes we may have made in holding this contest and places we plan to improve in the future.
In the past we’ve held contests that asked people to donate SEO services to charity organizations, but in the final analysis, those contests may have had too many requirements and been too complicated to gain any significant level of participation. Major props to those who waded through the complicated rules and came out on the other side with really great projects that helped deserving non-profit organizations. We realize that these participants went above and beyond, and we couldn’t expect anyone else to do as much in the future.

You are receiving this blog post from the future!
Okay, not really, but it just went live and I’m nowhere near BCI headquarters in sunny Simi Valley. Right about now I’ve probably made it to my hotel in the Big Apple after my red eye flight and am taking a quick catnap before my week-long family vacation extravaganza explodes into a storyline befitting the Griswolds.
While I’m gone, I expect an adventure — not only for myself but also for the important things being left in capable hands. For instance, Hiccups is going to have a nice stay with Grandma, who will no doubt give her all the cactus paddles and dandelion greens her heart desires. And the blog? Well, the blog is more than happy to be keeping company with some of the loveliest ladies in search and social.
