Matt Bailey of SiteLogic found a way to work OSU into a discussion of SEO and SEM at SES London last month. Now, I don't object when he gets feisty about topics like Search Engine Visibility and Site Crawlability, as he did at SES Chicago last December. But, he knows I'm a Wolverine from the University of Michigan. And, when he gets feisty about the Ohio State Buckeyes, I have to draw the line.
And redraw the line. And then wear a Buckeye sweatshirt whenever my team loses the annual Big 10 football showdown. Hey, people are starting to say I'm "sartorially challenged."
So, ignore the part of the interview about what I'll be wearing again this year. Instead, listen to what Matt has to say about the Search & Analytics Workshop that he'll be teaching at SES New York next week. Despite (or because of) the fact that he's from Ohio, he actually does have a lot of interesting things to say about using analytics to increase search effectiveness.
