Good morning. Welcome to the first day of SES San Francisco, part of Connected Marketing Week. This week of Internet marketing nerddom kicked off yesterday with SEO Training with our very own Bruce Clay and now we’re diving into the heart of the conference itself. I have coffee and a programming guide. Let’s do this. I don’t know who programmed the music this time around but it’s pretty great.
Mike Grehan welcomes us all. Hi, Mike!
Our opening keynote will be the delightful Jeffrey Hayzlett (@jeffreyhayzlett) whose bio lists him as a celebrity CMO as well as former Kodak CMO, Eastman Kodak Company. Can I be listed as a celebrity editor from now on? Or do you have to be Anna Wintour for that? I’m adding it to my bio regardless.

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.

To the tune of “Get Down Tonight” by KC and the Sunshine Band: Do a little dance! Make a little noise! It’s Friday night! It’s Friday night!
Sometimes these fits of brilliance just hit me. 😉
I love coming across the hilarious antics of people who know Google Street View is in town. SEO and social media marketer Michael Gray found a great one this week: two dudes chasing Street View in scuba gear! The story told by traveling through that moment in time is priceless. If you go back a frame you see them waiting in their lawn chairs while reading the paper.
We’re trying out a new recurring feature on the BCI Facebook fan page. In our Facebook question of the week, we want to know what you think about topical issues in Internet marketing. This week’s Super Bowl advertisers had me wondering if traditional media ads have more-or-less become a means for driving online traffic. Add your two cents to the convo, please!
