Next year I really want to go to this. There are a number of conferences in the UK that I want to go to as well.

Sounds like a great conference. Any chance of a blogging roundup for those of us in a different hemisphere?

Hey Andy! I’m planning to liveblog 10 sessions, plus our guest Kathy Long will be contributing session roundups as she sees fit. Afterward, I’m sure we’ll step back and make sense of the emerging themes and trends, possibly on the blog or our SEO Newsletter. :)
