Where My White Hat Ladies At?
Hey, hey, party kids. SMX East is officially accepting speaker pitches for the big October show in New York City. If you have some search smarts in a particular area and you want to speak, submit your idea and let Danny know you’re interested.
There are lots of great sessions still up for grabs but my eyes are focused in on one – The Give It Up: White Hat Edition panel.
There was just a touch of controversy after SMX Advanced and the last Give It Up panel so I think it’s really important for this one to knock it out of the park, the right way. It’s time to show conference attendees that advanced search engine optimization is not, and has never been, about black hat techniques and that we have way more stuff up our sleeves than just social media spamming. The experience level at SMX East has the potential to be a bit more beginner than at Advanced, so that fact becomes even more important. Conference speakers have a duty to unleash trusted information.
Something else totally lacking on the last Give It Up panel were the ladies. Seriously, six speaking slots and not a single female brain? Total oversight. I think we can do better than that. Not being a real SEO, I don’t consider myself qualified to step up to the plate, but if you’re a woman with some mad white hat search engine optimization skills, please consider joining the crazy and let Danny know you’re out there. We can’t let the boys have all the fun.
I’m really excited to head to SMX East, both for the show itself and the Bruce Clay East Coast SEO training session that will be taking place immediately after. It’s going to provide a great venue for SEOs to share their smarts and make powerful connections, so make sure you’re there.
So here’s my plea: If you’re a rocking, butt-kicking white hat SEO lady, considering “giving it up” in New York. I promise to be there cheering you on.
