SES Everywhere Outside The US Next!
===============================================

SES New York finished last week, and I along with about 6,000 other people are now recovering slowly. Couldn't make it? Fear not -- SES is heading literally around the world in the coming weeks.

SES China is next, happening in less than two weeks and featuring a keynote by Jack Ma, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Alibaba/Yahoo. Chris Sherman will be taking part in that show as conference chair.

SES Munich happens at the end of this month, and I'll be taking part in some panels on the first day out there.

April sees SES Japan, SES Italy and SES Toronto happening. Chris and I can't make it to every show, so we won't be at the first two. But we will be in Toronto. As conference chair of that event, Chris thought it would be fun to make me do the keynote. So I've gotta think of some inspirational things to say :)

From May 31 through June 2, one of my favorite shows happens, SES London. It's our longest-running non-US event and the first to expand to three days. It's also the only show that doesn't require me to get on an airplane, hence it being a favourite. Chris has just posted the show's agenda, so check it out.

In July, SES Latino happens in Miami, our first event targeting the US Hispanic and Latin American market. Nacho Hernandez has been working hard as conference chair to make this show come together, and I'm looking forward to taking part.

August sees our regular SES event return to the US, this time back to my native state of California. SES San Jose happens early in the month, and my timeline on when you can expect that agenda is posted here.

Doing forward planning beyond this? See the Search Engine Strategies site and also keep an eye on the Search Engine Strategies Blog.

Goodbye Gary; Hello Barry!
===============================================

I'm sad -- but also happy -- to report that Gary Price is no longer serving as Search Engine Watch's news editor. Gary's moving on to pastures new, and we wish him well. Coming on board to help make up for his loss is Barry Schwartz, who is our new news correspondent.

Gary's departing to become the new Director of Online Information Resources at Ask Jeeves. Gary's going to be posting more about it on his ResourceShelf blog, and Ask Jeeves will have a press release on it up here. He's also posted a personal goodbye note to SEW readers here: It's Time To Say So Long.

It's been an honor and pleasure to have worked with Gary over the past two years. He's a fantastic resource of knowledge, as so many are aware of. Losing him is that sad part, especially because aside from being a work colleague, he's also become a good friend. I'd have fought tooth and nail to keep him, but Gary's really looking for a completely new change of pace. So that's the happy part. He's found something new, and we here at Search Engine Watch wish him the very best. Chris Sherman sends him further best wishes here: Bon Voyage, Mr. Price.

Barry Schwartz will be well known to many of our readers as the hardworking editor of Search Engine Roundtable, where he keeps watch on interesting discussions out of various search forums. It's a real pleasure to have him coming aboard to do search news blogging with us. Welcome aboard, Barry!

Want to send well wishes to Gary or Barry? Please visit our Search Engine Watch Forums thread, So Long Gary Price!

Hosted Doorway Pages & Paid Links Back At Stanford University - Bouncing ball time. Last April, I wrote about how the Stanford Daily newspaper was selling links for those seeking to rank better on Google, ironic given that Google was born out of Stanford University and is very anti-link selling.

Google License To Operate In China Questioned; Will Disclosure Have To Go? - Google has no license for China service: newspaper from Reuters covers new questions on whether Google is able to operate legally in China. That seems absurd given the worldwide coverage of Google bending to the Chinese government's censorship demands last month.
