Search Marketing Expo — SMX West — returns for its 10th year completely retooled with tactic-rich sessions for SEOs and SEMs.
Programmed by the Search Engine Land team, the agenda features 60+ sessions, keynotes, clinics and special tracks by Google and Bing to fit your experience and skill level, whether you’re a veteran or just getting started. As past attendees can attest, you’ll leave the show with new tactics you’ll implement immediately.
You’ll attend “ripped from the headlines” topics designed to keep you up to date on everything going on in search today, whether your specialty is SEO, SEM or both. You’ll dive into new trends, from the emergence of AI, algorithm changes, new ad formats like ETAs, call extensions, voice search and beyond. And you’ll leave SMX West with tactics, tips and techniques you’ll implement immediately to drive traffic, convert visitors and grow your business.
Here’s a peek at a few of the sessions we’re looking forward to:
