In this session, we’ll go beyond the ordinary normal keyword research tools and methods for targeting keywords. This is a big panel of folks up here. Our friend Keri Morgret is usually behind the laptop, liveblogging sessions; but today, this is her first time as a speaker – go Keri! Chris Sherman is telling us Bing is sponsoring the WiFi today; however, I can’t connect to it.

Morning! The days are quickly blending together in a flurry of dinners, lunches, drinks, parties, sessions and conversations.
Today we have Stefan Weitz, director at Bing (which, by the way, hosted a somewhat misplaced hip hop act at their party last night) who will discuss the significance of social and the Web.
The social signals are brewing in Seattle with the session ‘Yes Virginia, Tweeting is SEO’ powered by an expert panel poised to reveal the secret SEO sauce of Twitter.

We are here now with Matt Cutts for a question-and-answer session and boy, it’s packed! Moderator is Danny Sullivan on this one.
Danny is singing a tune to Mr. Rogers about Matt — I think you had to be here to get the full experience. He and Danny are putting on custom Google Vans shoes now a la Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.
Danny just unveiled the third guest in the other chair — a giant stuffed panda. And now panda foot stools. Wow, this is a whole skit. Danny just said “Panda does what panda wants” — a honeybadger reference (if you haven’t seen that video on YouTube, go there).

Hi kids — this is the last session in the Off the Beaten Track track for today. In this session, we’ll be talking conversion via a “clear process that takes business goals and search data and turns them into a blueprint for creating a user experience that starts at the search box and ends with conversion.”
Last regular session of the day and then it’s the Matt Cutts show. Are you excited? I’m excited about how I’m losing feeling in my fingertips. It sort of tingles.
I expect this to be a popular session since everyone is obsessed with links. And because Ross Hudgens is adorable.

After a very long and delicious lunch courtesy of our friends at AimClear (there was cake!), I’ve had a sufficient amount of rest to dive into this panel. I hope.
How hard can a panel called “The Really Complicated Technical SEO Infrastructure Issues” be to liveblog, right? It’s not like the panel is full of totally smart people who can think rings around the rest of us or anything…
