Ever since Google created PageRank, every good search marketer’s motto has been "I link, therefore I am." Though linking seems easy, it’s a far more subtle art than most realize, and there are right, and wrong ways to conduct your linking campaign, especially in the aftermath of Google’s recent algorithm updates that penalize some types of links. In this session, we’ll look at how to reach out and get quality links, how to craft anchor text to build authority, and how to avoid commonplace mistakes that will hurt your web credibility (and search engine rankings).

Speaker:
Andy Atkins-Krüger, CEO, Webcertain

"I’m not designing my site for search engines," is a common designer objection to SEO suggestions. The reality, however, is that search engines are the starting point for most internet users, and if your site is difficult for Google, Bing or other engines to "read", it’s never going to work for your human visitors either. Attend this session and learn how to create search engine friendly sites that are equally appealing to human visitors.


3:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Afternoon coffee break


3:30 PM – 5:00 PM

SMX Boot Camp: Paid Search Fundamentals

Matt Van Wagner

Speaker:
Matt Van Wagner, President, Find Me Faster

Paid search allows you to generate traffic from search engines by purchasing ads, usually on a cost-per-click (CPC) or pay-per-click (PPC) basis. This session covers the basics of how to purchase placement from the major search engines, including best practices for success with your ads.
