Kevin Ryan on the Future of Search Engine Strategies

Last week, we announced that Kevin Ryan had joined Incisive Media as the new VP and global content director for Search Engine Strategies and Search Engine Watch. Lee Odden interviewed Kevin for his Online Marketing Blog last week, and today, Rand Fishkin of SEOmoz published an interview he did with Kevin, "The New Direction of SES & An Interview with Kevin Ryan."

Kevin spoke with Rand at SES Toronto, which took place earlier this week. He offered some insight into the direction SES may be heading, and shared with Rand Incisive's plan to create an advisory board for the SES conferences, consisting of about a dozen individuals from the industry to help Kevin and our programming and operations teams guide the direction of future conferences.

While we don't have specifics to announce now, you can expect to hear all the details very soon. In the meantime, if you've got ideas for SES, please share them in the SEW Forums. There are a couple of spots remaining on the board, so if you think you have something to offer, get in touch with Kevin at kevin.ryan -at- incisivemedia.com.
