WordStream Dives into Search Engine Strategies San Jose

WordStream Dives into Search Engine Strategies San Jose

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:Larry Kim Speaks at SES San Jose

  • 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.
