Schedule for Search Marketing Expo Advanced 2007
It seems like only yesterday that I was eagerly awaiting my trip to Seattle for SMX. All excited about entering the Town of Moz and wondering what Danny Sullivan would work up for us this time. But it wasn’t only yesterday. It was actually 6 months ago and all of this blogging has simply caused me to blend days together, lose track of time, and turned sleep into something only experienced by the weak.
But I’m okay with that, because now it’s June and I’m going to Seattle!
This weekend, several members of the Bruce Clay team, including our newest one, will make the trek to Seattle to attend the first-ever, and much-hyped, Search Marketing Expo Advanced. You’ll also be able to catch Bruce speaking during Tuesday’s Give It Up session, and we’ll be letting Susan out of her cage in order to provide full conference coverage. With two of us there, you won’t miss a thing. You’ll even get to see our cat fights in person. Can you handle it?
To help you balance your Lisa/Susan sightings, here’s a schedule of who will be where and when. If you spot Susan, be sure to give her a hug. She loves it when people she doesn’t know invade her personal space.
