My SMX Schedule

As many of you know, I’m headed out to SMX Advanced in Seattle this week. If you’re trying to catch me, here’s a list of the sessions I’ll be attending. This is just a temporary list though, so I may end up swapping in some more SEM classes in favor of SEO ones. If you want to get in touch with me during SMX you can try 4square (RyanJones) or Twitter (RyanJones) as I’ll be using both frequently. Or, you can try old fashioned methods like email, phone, or text message. All of my contact info is available here (in plain text AND hcard format): ryanmjones.com.

Monday

  • 6-7 Meet & Greet – Hopefully there’s free drinks.

Tuesday

  • 9am-10:15am SEO for Google Vs Bing. I’ll attempt to blog about this, but it’s early so no promises.
  • 11:00 – 12:15 Twitter, Real time Search, & Real Time SEO. I will be live blogging this one too!
  • 12:15- 1:45 (tenantive) Lunch with Google Engineer Maile Ohye
  • 1:45 – 3:00 (tenative) Show me the links: Real Life Link Building (I”m also debating on skipping this for pump up conversions)
  • 3:30-4:45 The Ultimate social media tools session. (although demystifying online attribution also sounds interesting)
  • 5:00 – 5:45 You&A With Matt Cutts. I’m going to attempt to live blog this one as well, so stay tuned!
  • 5:45 – 7:00 Expo Hall Reception. I can’t turn down free drinks and Lisa Barone stalking….
  • 8:00 – ? Bing’s Party at Olympic Sculpture Park. Again, I can’t say no to free drinks. Hoping some fellow ZAAZ employees will crash this one with me

Wednesday

  • 9:00 – 9:45 Keynote with Yusuf Mehdi. High likelyhood of me sleeping through this though as Yusuf just spoke at ZAAZ last week.
  • 10:30 – 11:45 So You Want To Test SEO – Really Hoping Jill Whalen shows up for this one. I’ll bring the boxing gloves. I’ll also be nursing a hangover
  • 11:45 – 1:30 – Lunch with some domainers. Believe it or not, domaining and search have a lot in common.
  • 1:30-2:45 I haven’t decided between Vanessa Fox’s SEO site architecture or Danny Sullivan’s Facebook marketing. I may bounce between them.
  • 3:00 – 4:15 SEO Vets Take All Comers. – The words “powerpoint free” were all I needed to see to sign up for this. This might be another live blog.
  • 6:00 – most likely not going to the SEOmoz party. Mostly because I don’t think they’d let me in!

So that’s my smx schedule. I’ll be tweeting and live blogging throughout the days, so stay tuned for updates. I’d also like to hear what sessions you’re looking forward to attending.
