SMX Advanced London

Today and tomorrow I am at SMX Advanced London, I will be teaching a seminar on Social Media for beginners Tuesday morning for Utalkmarketing. I have been told it’s now sold out, but I’m sure you can sneak in if you don’t mind standing.

If you read this blog and are at SMX, come up and say hi. It’s great to meet anyone in the industry and always interesting to make new friends.

If you need to contact me whilst I am at the conf, best way is to Tweet me.

Link Building Brain Cells, Blown at SMX London

I will be speaking at the Search Marketing Expo, in London, May 19th, 2009.

The panel is , “Blow Your Mind Link Building Techniques” and I will be sharing it with Patrick Altoft, Rand Fishkin and Pete Wailes.

Most of the presentation is ready to go, but I am going to be using my Twitter account to do a little tinkering, throwing out some ideas and generally using it as a three dimensional scribble pad. Hmmmm, not sure the metaphor works but anyway.

The premise of the presentation is “The linker does not give the link because of the content, the link is given because of what is happening in their mind.”

With that in mind I can see why someone has already called it the Zen and Art of Link Building.

As this is the “Blow your Mind” section I can’t get away with delivering a bunch of old and tatty ideas just so as I can promote myself (who would ever do such a thing at a conference) so I am going to work really hard to come up with advanced stuff that can really up your game. There are some techniques which I have found very useful in the past which I have never shared, SMX seems as good a place to talk about them.

It’s going to be a killer panel as the other guys are all highly regarded experts in their field.

Make sure you grab a ticket and come see the show. If you need to learn how to market online, this is the place to be.

SMX London

It’s that time of year again. London Search Marketing Expo is on the 4th and 5th of November. It’s a British tradition to build a bonfire throwing an effigy of Guy Fawkes onto it, we like to celebrate this burning of Catholic conspirators whilst eating toffee apples and watching fireworks.

Someone has mentioned that a Guy Fawkes effigy will be present at the conference and that a certain Google spam hunters face will adorn the Guy. Surely not?

If you are thinking of going, go. You get to meet some great people and learn some cutting edge techniques. I’m not much of a conference goer as I’m usually too busy, but I am making an effort for this one. It’s a great place to find out how short seo bloggers actually are.
