Gearing Up For SES London!
Valentines’ Day isn’t the only special occasion on the horizon (it’s on Thursday, people, don’t mess it up); Search Engine Strategies London kicks off next week and with our friend Mike Grehan at the wheel, you know it’s going to be one you won’t want to miss.
Unfortunately for me and Susan, we’ll both be missing it. I know, I’m sad too, but Bruce says we’re too big to fit in his suitcase. Maybe next time.
Those going, however, are promised to have plenty of fun in our absence. You can catch Bruce speaking during Thursday’s My SEM Toolbox session with Thomas Bindle and Maxime Grandchamp. Also in attendance will be Bruce Clay Europe’s Rory De Niro and Marie Howell. Make sure to track them down and give them a big hug for me. While you’ve got them in your clutches, feel free to hit them with all of your international SEO questions. They’re pretty smart folks.
Even though we won’t be providing full liveblogging coverage (perhaps we can get Marie to sneak us some dirt!), Susan and I wanted to help you maximize your SES London experience. As such, we took a look at the schedule and picked out the sessions we think will give you the most bang for your SEO buck. Here are our favorites!
