Keynote and Special Sessions from Facebook, Google and Bing
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 engines 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.
Special Sponsored Session: Enhancing AdWords For A Constantly Connected World
Today, people are constantly connected and searching from all kinds of devices. They want results that are relevant to where they are, what they’re doing, and when they’re doing it. With the recent launch of enhanced campaigns, Google aims to help advertisers more simply and smartly manage their campaigns in the multi-device world. In this session, Surojit Chatterjee will provide an overview of key features and changes with enhanced campaigns, tips on getting started, and answer your questions. This session is produced and sponsored by Google.
