  • How to Get Everything You've Ever Wanted With Just an Email
    Rand Fishkin
    That new job? That guest column in the publication of your dreams? Help promoting that piece? A chance to walk through your product with your ideal sales target? Getting people you don't know to do you small (and medium-sized) favors that can have huge impacts on your marketing? HARD. But there are ways to ease this friction, increase your odds of success, and form real relationships with powerful professional impacts. In this presentation, Rand Fishkin, cofounder of SparkToro (prev. Moz) will show exactly how to turn seemingly impossible asks and unconquerable outreach into high probabilities for success.

  • Branding
    Veronica Romney

  • The Two Tiered SERP
    Tom Capper
    Like it or loathe it, as SEOs we often find ourselves being asked to explain rankings, especially for highly visible head terms - but I’ve noticed in the last few years that for these most competitive terms, the normal rules don’t always apply. In this talk, I’ll dig into whether and how Google is going beyond our normal understanding of ranking factors, and how we need to react.
  • Benchmarking Success for Client Sites, Competitors, and Industries
    Derek Gleason
    There's only one KPI that every client has: more. More traffic, more leads—more of whatever metric you're reporting. Ten percent growth? Why wasn't it fifteen? Six hundred shares? Why wasn't it 1,000? If we can't set relative, valid benchmarks, we can't set expectations. Reporting becomes a Sisyphean task. This leads to friction with our direct contact and—critically—weakens the ability of our data to translate throughout an organization.
  • Content Marketing
    Kameron Jenkins
    The SEO Wordsmith at Moz and founder of Soapboxly, a content and copywriting service that’s on a mission to create marketing materials that match each brand’s unique identity and goals.
