Search Engine Conferences

Search & Social Wants to Meet You at Pubcon

Five members of Search & Social will be in Vegas this week for Pubcon, and we are really psyched to meet SEJ readers and other people we have networked with online this year. The rest of our team will stay back and continue cranking out great content for SEJ and Internet Marketing initiatives for clients.

Our team is hoping to start the networking before we even touch down in Vegas, and maybe that can begin in the comments thread of this post.

Which five of us are going?

Loren Baker

Loren Baker is the Founder and Editor of SearchEngineJournal.com , he is also a crazy person. Recently he found out he was having a boy this April, and we are 3/5 of the way to a Search & Social basketball team. If you see him in Vegas you should really point out the size of his feet, which are pretty much the average length of snow skis.

Loren is speaking on two panels:

Social Media Measurement and Signals – 11/12, 1:30p – 2:45p

Social media is the fastest online marketing channel. Measuring those efforts is top of mind for those doing the engaging. This session will examine tools and practices for measuring results of social media marketing.

Jordan Kasteler

Jordan Kasteler is the Co-Founder of Search & Social, and one of the brightest minds in the industry. He also travels with more hair products than anyone else in the industry. I am not sure there is a correlation between hair products and genius though. Jordan is looking forward to meeting with industry leaders and other attendees about our new venture, Second Step Search, a game changer in terms of internet marketing workflow and quality.

Scott Polk

Scott is the Director of Operations for Search & Social. He is also an infamous industry party boy, so he is likely the member of our team that you will see most often in Vegas next week.

Scott is speaking on a few panels:

Organic Link Building (Lunch Table) – 11/10, 12:30pm – 1:30pm

SEO Design & Organic Site Structure -11/10, 1:30am – 2:45pm

Interactive Site Reviews (Moderating) – 11/12, 1:30pm – 2:45pm

This is a great opportunity to learn from the successes and mistakes of others. It is also a great place to ask very specific questions about your own Web site or online marketing campaign.

Ryan Sammy

Ryan is Search & Social’s social media analyst, and will basically be our do boy at the conference. He is a smart young kid, who has really been shining for as of late, which makes me even wonder if we should let him around the rest of the industry sharks. If you see Ryan, say high, he is a really great guy, and we are lucky to have him.

Me – Dave Snyder

5052 89687731269 570451269 2158167 7958353 n Search & Social Wants to Meet You at Pubcon

I am the weakest link of the Search & Social team, BUT I am also the most attractive so I am forced to go to conferences and woo potential clients. It is not my fault I am so handsome, its a curse really.

I am speaking on:

Capitalizing on Twitter & the Microblogging Revolution – 11/10, 11:30a – 12:45p

Social media traffic is decidedly different from search traffic, newsletter traffic, or general link traffic. Knowing how to capitalize on this huge traffic potential is critical for social media players and those new to the space, too. This session will look at how to capitalize on social media outlets and monetize them. Our panel of Social Media Gurus will provide the ACTION steps you can take to make that happen.

Get your Web site reviewed live by a panel of Search Engine Marketing experts. Anything goes in this session, where sites can be reviewed for SEM or SEO, examined for links, content, optimization, architecture, or other areas of interest. This is a great opportunity to learn from the successes and mistakes of others. It is also a great place to ask very specific questions about your own Web site or online marketing campaign.

Bring your business cards to the moderator or any panelist at the beginning of the session.

Joking aside we really want to meet up with as many interesting people as we can this week, so get involved in the comments and let us know when and where we can connect.
