Rhea Drysdale @Rhea is setting the context: don’t take every recommendation and try to implement it, but do implement something.

Holy heatmap have you seen the SMX West agenda? This is some next level content. Getting to attend an educational series like the one going down next week in San Jose is truly one of the perks of the job. Of course it’s not all fun times and smart insights while at SMX; I earn my keep by liveblogging. And with an agenda like this, picking the sessions to attend has been the hardest part! But I did it, and after the fold down you’ll see the SMX West sessions you’ll find on the blog next week. Ad retargeting, YouTube PPC, Google Knowledge Graph, Facebook Graph Search, authorship and online identity — it’s all here!

Good morning from the third and final day of SMX East 2012! Last night, I was casually sitting on a bench on a street in NYC when a cockroach nearly landed on my head. No joke. I flew off that bench in 2.5 seconds, then noticed his little cockroach cronie by my foot who proceeded to stand up on his hind legs as if he were about to attack. I think they were trying to mug me.
But I digress. We’re not here to talk about cockroach gangs, right? We’re here to talk about advanced keyword research. You can follow Twitter tidbits for this session on #31B.

Last session of the day, folks. And what better way to wrap it up then to talk about a different type of optimization – optimizing your search marketing career. With more and more people choosing search marketing as their livelihood, I bet lost of people have questions about how to excel in their field. This is what the session aims to tackle. You can mine tidbits from this session at #24B on Twitter.
Couple observations about the conference: 1) Gluten-free chocolate cake! I also noticed vegan and kosher options. Very cool. 2) Roaming nuns! Yes, folks, search has officially gone mainstream. Some very lovely sisters were roaming the expo halls looking for Web marketing services.
That’s a great segue into personas, right? Who are the people in your community and how can you market to them? You can follow Twitter chat om this session at #22b.
Day 2 of SMX East comin’ at ya, and New York was very good to us last night. If you’re in the city, you have to check out the tapas restaurant Las Rambles. Soo delish. But back to the topic at hand. In this session, we’re talking Meta data, which can also be delish because there’s lot of cool things you can do with it these day to help your website become more relevant and attention-grabbing. You can check out the hashtag for this session at #21C on Twitter.

I’m kind of excited to be covering this session because this is one of the Plus tracks – meaning anyone with the free-level conference pass can attend. Looking forward to seeing what it’s all about.
Today we have Jon Ball (@LinkBuildingJon) of Page One Power. Wow, full house. He is starting down on the floor with the people. I love it when speakers do that. He starts off by saying you can be as relevant as you can be in your topical theme on your site, but if no one links to you, then you aren’t going to get anywhere.
We just covered which SEO metrics are important to track in the last session. Now we’re talking technical SEO metrics. So, are you ready to get all jiggy with yummy tech metrics? Me too. You can follow tidbits from this session at #12b on Twitter.
Hello, New York! I love this city. Waking up to the sounds of a bustling street makes me all warm and fuzzy. For this session, you can look at the Twitter hashtag #11b.
