SES – SEO Women Lunch

    April 13, 2007

Not a walk in the park. Day 3 of the NYC SES conference is the day that a Women in SEO luncheon gathering took place a few blocks from the hotel. It was invite only, which meant I got to go because I’m a woman. Nothing else special. Like an engagement over TV or anything.

We beautiful women, about 35 of us, plus David Temple and Jim Hedger, who were there because they are men who have written pieces in honor of women (so has Danny Sullivan but he was understandably busy.) By the way, Mr. Sullivan is being interviewed behind me as I write this. Rand Fishkin is two chairs down, Barry Schwartz is on my right and his sidekick, Tamar, is on my left.

Why is she hot?

Kim Krause Berg writes on one of the most prominent woman-authored SEO blogs at Cre8pc. She also writes for just about every other SEO publication on the planet, including Search Engine Guide, High Rankings, WebProNews, Search Engine Round Table and SearchNewz. She’s also one of just a few work at home moms who mixes SEO and family on her blog, which makes Cre8pc a must read for any mom who gets riled up about Google juice (like me!!)

More to come!
