SMX West 2010 Liveblogging Schedule

The first big search conference of the new year, Search Marketing Expo West, is just around the bend. SMX West takes place March 2-5 in Santa Clara, California. Bruce Clay, Inc. will be there, with a team in the booth, this liveblogger in the session rooms, and Bruce Clay speaking at sessions and presenting SEO training.

As always, the upcoming conference boasts an impressive line up of speakers and sessions. In my interview with SMX co-chair Chris Sherman on today’s SEM Synergy podcast, Chris ventured to say that March’s SMX West might be the best search conference yet!

Needless to say there’s lots of excitement and planning happening in the BCI office as we prepare for what’s sure to be a great show. In fact, Bruce has blocked out a dream agenda fit for an expert SEO. You could use Bruce’s dream agenda as a guide in your journey to gain advanced-level SEO knowledge at the conference. You could also use it to track him down to ask him all your questions — though if you think that smacks of stalker, you can always attend the Ask the SEOs session, where Bruce is on the panel on Day 3 of the show.

Of course, Bruce isn’t the only one mapping out his schedule for the conference. Step one when liveblogging a fast-paced show like SMX West is to know where you’re going. So with that, here’s this liveblogger’s dream agenda for SMX West, which just so happens to be my actual agenda! :)
