What SEO Conference Should I Go To?

Danny Sullivan

A friend of mine just asked me which SEO conference to go to next year. It didn’t take me long to list some of my favorite choices. If I could go to any conference for SEO it would be SMX. That’s where the cutting edge people are, in my opinion. SMX holds about four conferences a year in North America, four in Europe and a few in Asia. One “SMX Advanced” conference is put on each year in the U.S. and one in the U.K. The advanced would be my choice. That’s where you can expect the real SMO experts to speak and occasionally share some secrets. Danny Sullivan is the force that propels SMX and his reputation and contribution to the search marketing community has been unmatched. A large number of A-listers and working SEO’s follow his work on
SearchEngineLand.com.

Second choice for SEO only would be SES, aka Search Engine Strategies, which Danny was involved in earlier in his career.

Or for a broader experience than just SEO but with a heavy focus on SEO/SMO, you might head to pubcon PubCon. I will probably go to PubCon next year. It’s genesis is in the work of WebmasterWorld.com’s founder, Brett Tabke.

Sphinn Stalking

I felt a little uneasy the day I saw that I was “stalking” a female SEO on Sphinn.com, Danny Sullivan’s social media news site for search. No worries, in Sphinn v2, stalkers have been decriminalized and replaced by the more politically correct “followers.”

Sphinn Stalking SEO Woman

We can all feel a little better about ourselves now. Kudos Sphinn for trying something different!
