My First SMX Advanced Conference

This is a guest post by Troy Redington. Find him on Twitter @TroyRedington, and his wife, an architect and photographer, at Johwey!

As the solo in-house SEO for Fatwallet, it is important that I keep up with the constant changes of the industry. My two staple conferences have been SESNY and Pubcon Vegas. Last spring I was toying with the idea of attending Pubcon South instead of SES when Danny Sullivan told me to skip both and go to SMX Advanced. I decided to go to New York. Big mistake. SES sucked, and the SMX Advanced conference was blessed with the nofollow pagerank evaporation announcement. (more…)

At SMX; Be Back Next Week

I’m headed to see my brother out in BC, and from there, onwards to SMX in California. I’m not sure whether I’ll be blogging or not during the conference, but if I do, I’ll do my best to make it original stuff rather than session summaries or roundups, though I may do that as well. Bottom line: Don’t get your hopes up for fresh content this week; it’s my turn to learn from others. :) If you need to satisfy your hunger for SEO knowledge, look at these nice recent posts…
