WebmasterWorld Conference Wrap-up

    June 24, 2005

As a veteran of last year’s San Jose SES, I certainly understand the benefit of conferences when it comes to everything related to search engines including; marketing, optimization, link strategies, and so on. The amount of insider knowledge you are privy to can be incredibly valuable.

With that in mind, WebmasterWorld just held their search conference (ended yesterday June 23 with the PubConf going on today June 24), and by all accounts from those who attended, WebmasterWorld’s conference was filled with tons of information as well.

WebmasterWorld Conference Wrap-up

Barry Schwartz, he of RustyBrick and SearchEngineRoundtable fame, happened to attend WMW’s conference and provided some extensively solid coverage for anyone who didn’t get to participate but would still like to read about the topics covered at the different sessions.

Because his SERoundtable posts covering the conference were so comprehensive, today Barry posted an archive with links to posts about every session he attended. So if you weren’t lucky enough to make New Orleans, check out Barry’s coverage, it’s so thorough, you’ll feel like you were almost attending.

The following are links to each day’s coverage. By all means, check it out:
