SEM Gourmet: SEMPDX Searchfest Reviewed
Ian Lurie Mar 11 2008
When I drove down to Portland to speak at SEMPDX’s ‘Searchfest 2008’, I had low-ish expectations. Lots of great people running it and participating, of course, but it was a very small conference compared to SMX West.
Next year I’ll be more optimistic – it was a great, great conference.
The one-day conference had great content (with one exception I’ll be writing about later), top presenters and while it had some technical glitches was generally well organized.
If you want a small, elegant serving of search engine optimization and marketing advice, definitely check it out next year.
