SMX Advanced 2014 Highlights

Some of the top highlights include the Matt Cutts You & A, where Cutts fielded questions on Author Rank, link removal and his favorite webmaster tools. He also confirmed an algorithm update that was neither Panda nor Penguin and announced Google is trying to make improvements to the reconsideration request process.

In Ask the SEOs, Greg Boser, Rae Hoffman, Jeff Preston, Marshall Simmonds and Ellen White talked about the biggest issues in search engine marketing, including the state of PageRank sculpting, the impact of global top-level domains, and Penguin penalties.

25 Social Media Ideas for the Advanced Search Marketer was another key session with Matt Siltala, Lisa Williams, Mark Traphagen and Michael King. Williams talked about using social media to make connections through storytelling while King focused on the importance of research for every Internet marketing campaign — and how to use that research to inform your marketing on all fronts. Siltala took a deep dive into the role of visual content, and Traphagen taught SEOs how to build brand authority using Author Rank.
