I’ll be heading out Sunday to Chicago for the annual Search Engine Strategies Conference. I will be a Q&A speaker on the “Working With Ad Agencies” session that looks at how SEM firms can survive and thrive in the ad agency world through partnerships, coexisting and other means. I will also be covering the “CSS, AJAX, Web 2.0 & Search Engines” session for an article I will write shortly after the conference for SearchDay. Other than that, haven’t made up my mind exactly which sessions I will attend. Most of all I look forward to meeting up with all my search marketing friends.
So posting may be light next week unless there is breaking news or I get inspired. If you are at Chicago SES, please look me up. I always enjoy meeting new faces at these conferences. Chicago is typically a smaller venue with 1,000 or so in attendance unlike the mammoth 5,000 plus that attend the San Jose conference each year. Therefore it makes for a more intimate setting for marketers to hang out, network and party.
