Now that we're into May, it's less than a month before the first Search Marketing Expo (SMX) event in Seattle on June 4th and June 5th. It's the first search marketing trade show put together by Danny Sullivan and Chris Sherman since they left Search Engine Strategies and this site.
SMX Advanced is targeted to a focused audience of 500 or so advanced search marketers, with networking as well. The idea is that a more focused and relaxed environment should help further strengthen and expand the connections across leaders in the SEO industry.
For many of us, this is almost a pilgrimage. This is Danny's first SMX show and lots of people are going just to be a part of that. That's what makes the "advanced" theme of the show so fitting, as the people who know Danny best will be there in droves.
