Best SEO Conference I’ve been to. Love the in-depth analysis on specific SEO topics. Speakers were good and all had a convincing story to tell.

It was a great conference overall! I have tons of actionable tips and services I’m going to take a look at for my company and I’m excited to be a loyal annual attendee!

This was my first time at Advanced. I had been to SMX East before, but I was blown away with how much this conference matched my skill sets. I learned something from every SEM session. I felt like the group surrounding me were similar and that made for great networking and swapping ideas. Great job to all! Will definitely be back!

The conference did a great job at informing me about what the future of search will look like. I received a lot of actionable ideas from the speakers & am looking forward to implementing them in the near future. I also appreciate that the speakers also delved into the future of how consumers will search & interact with the various search engines & our own website. Overall, it was a very insightful experience for me. Thanks!

First SMX conference and I am sure I will be attending future ones as well. The conference was well put together and offered up some nice networking opportunities for me.

SMX was a wealth of good information from other people in the industry. It was also a unique opportunity to bounce ideas off of other people in the field and network.

I think there is a good array of topics. This size of this event also makes other attendees, speakers, and vendors accessible to talk with and ask questions.

Solid technical information and advice. Assumes a base knowledge so no time is wasted explaining concepts people should already be familiar with.

…I felt that the conference was very informative and really had great speakers that presented relative and advanced techniques to consider when implements SEO, PPC or Local campaigns.

…it is by far the most actionable search conference I’ve ever been to. I love that speakers assume we already know a lot about SEO (because we do) and the presentations are therefore more specific with more information that we can act on.

This conference was much more focused on walking through the theories/strategies/best practices in a way that I can digest and implement/test.

It attracts some of the top search marketing professionals in the world (good for networking and sharing ideas).

Alan Bleiweiss – Search Marketing Wisdom

SMX Advanced is “the” conference of the year I suggest when I am asked the question: “What is the one conference you recommend I go to?” and I am ALWAYS asked the question. The networking opportunities, quality of speakers and information given is second to none.

Matt Siltala – Dream Systems Media

I wish I had a clone with me. So much great content, speakers, and topics. I must say that the best information gained was during the networking events though; the contacts and conversations have been priceless.

SMX Advanced is the most informative and accessible search marketing event I’ve attended… ever. Danny and team put on an awesome event at a great venue that the SEO community has come to rely on every year. Everything from the speakers to the networking opportunities is top notch.. even the food!

Andrew Lipstein – Thomson Reuters

SMX Advanced is what conferences should be. My goal for conferences is to leave every session with at least two “must do” actions, and SMX Advanced doesn’t disappoint. Sessions were both informative and actionable. And the bright, like–minded people you’ll meet at SMX Advanced take the experience from just a conference to an amazing networking event. There’s nearly as much to learn in the evenings as there is during the sessions.

Rachael Gerson – SEER Interactive

Working in Search and Online Marketing for over 14 years, SMX Advanced is one of the only conferences I can attend and still walk away from with new learnings and actionable takeaways.

SMX Advanced was filled with incredibly experienced and friendly digital marketers which led many valuable networking opportunities, including great conversations with attendees and vendors about the latest trends in search, marketing and analytics industries. Moreover, the speakers and SMX staff were some of the most helpful and gracious people with whom I’ve had the opportunity to work at a conference.

Thomas Ciszek – Co-founder & Product VP, Cojoin

SMX Advanced was the most worthwhile conference I have been to. Between the value I obtained from hands on sessions to the amazing networking opportunities, every minute spent was worth its weight in gold. I hope I can carry on attending SMX Advanced for many years to come and continue obtaining high caliber search marketing insight.

Jonathan Hurst-Sneh – GlynnDevins Advertising & Marketing

SMX Advanced is what a marketing conference should strive to be. Full of sessions that are led by leaders in the search marketing industry providing attendees with valuable and actionable takeaways. Then add the networking opportunities with peers, the speakers, and after hour events, make SMX Advanced a can’t miss conference.

Timothy Carter – Nimlok Displays

The Search Engine Land Summit was my favorite! I learned loads about future trends and its great to stay ahead on trends. The sessions were good and I came back with a lot of new ideas to implement for our clients and our own business. The takeaways were impressive. It was worth the long trip from India.

Sangeeta Kumar – VP, GMR Web Team

SMX Advanced has consistently been the most valuable conference I attend every year. When I first got into SEO, the amount I learned here was enough to keep me busy for months, now I find that the connections I make save me months of work. There is simply no better way to learn from and meet the best people in digital marketing than to attend SMX.
