Obvi, SES was the big event on the blogs this week. It’s already been recapped and live-blogged all over the place so I won’t spend too much time re-recapping it or dead-blogging it now. But I do want to highlight some of the excellent coverage and connections we made in San Jose.
First up, the coverage. Worth going back and reading if you missed it:
- Virginia Nussey live-blogged many sessions over at the Bruce Clay blog, including the death of last-click attribution and SEO tools of the trade.
- Check out the aimClear blog for coverage of topics including landing page optimization, conversion rate optimization and viral marketing.
- Rebecca Kelley at the 10e20 blog covered social media-related sessions (with extra snark).
- SEO-PR rounds up all the coverage on the Search Engine Strategies blog.
Next, some WordStream highlights:
- Our founder and VP of products Larry Kim spoke on a panel called "Brainstorming the Paid Search Super Tool," explaining just what makes WordStream so super and so different from typical PPC tools.
- Larry also spoke with Manoj Jasra about WordStream's vision and how the technology works. You can read the Q&A at Web Analytics World and at Search Engine Guide.
And finally we want to give a shout-out to all the great people we met at SES:
- Aaron Wall of SEO Book
- Alex Cohen of Click Equations
- Bill Hunt
- Bruce Clay
- Chris Boggs of Rosetta
- David Szetela of Clix Marketing
- Greg Myers of SEM Geek
- Josh Dreller of Fuor Digital
- Kayden Kelly of Blast Advanced Media
- Lance Loveday of Closed Loop Marketing
- Manoj Jasra at Web Analytics World
- Matt Van Wagner of Find Me Faster
- Mike Grehan
- Rebecca Lieb of Econsultancy
- Sage Lews of SageRock
And finally finally, a little non-SES action for you: Gab Goldenberg did a really interesting series on backlink checking (here's part 2) -- recommended.
