Keynote Speakers

Facebook Keynote Conversation

With over 1 billion users, Facebook’s offerings are evolving at an equally frantic pace. In this keynote conversation, Grady Burnett, VP of Global Marketing Solutions for Facebook, and Search Engine Land founding editor Danny Sullivan will discuss Facebook Exchange, the just announced Facebook Graph Search launch, and how marketers can capitalize on these new offerings.

Interrogate The Search Police at SMX West

Ethical and effective search marketers put in tremendous effort to create good content, drive traffic and convert and keep customers. But some, though perhaps unintentionally, step over the lines of what the search engines find acceptable ­and then you may be facing “search engine jail.” Join us for a lively discussion lead by two of the top spam cops around, Google’s Matt Cutts and Bing’s Duane Forrester, and find out what to avoid and how you can succeed with the search enginesŠ legally!

Evening Forum: Walk A Mile In Google’s Shoes

Search marketers are an opinionated group, and one topic that’s certain to create debate is Google’s search policies. For every decision Google may make to “improve” a searcher’s experience, there may also be an equally negative reaction or repercussion. Search policy specialist Patrick Thomas will lead an invigorating discussion on some of the decisions Google has to make and the balancing act it requires.
