SMX Paris 2012 takes place today & tomorrow. I'll be presenting at 2 sessions:
- How to get out of Google Penalties - june 7th, 16:30
- Affiliation strategies - Search Marketing beyond the 1st click - june 8th 11:30
SMX Paris is one of the two only serious SEO conferences in France. I'm pretty excited to be there ;)
This is a utility post for anyone going to a4uexpo and looking for some above average food... especially steak:
- The best place in town is called "Zum Goldenen Kalb" - Utzschneidertr.1 80469 München. The filet is just as juicy as the best you'd get in the US... and the spinach... don't even get me started on the spinach! (and it's MMWYE approved ;)
- The Hilton Am Tucherpark hotel restaurant is also pretty decent. The filet is less awesome than am Goldenen Kalb but the lentils... yes the lentils... are just the best I ever had! Seriously!
Note: if you wonder what's up with spinach, lentils and slow carbs in general, check out the 4 hour body book by Tim Ferris ;)
Other places of interest:
- Cafe Rischart am Marienplatz for all sorts of cakes ;)
- There's also that awesome Spatenhaus an der Oper (near the Opera) with the insane schnitzl... some of the best I ever had ;)
I'm speaking at SMX Paris 2010. I'm actually giving a presentation in 3 different sessions:
- Architecturer un Site - june 15th, 12:00
- Un design web optimisé pour les moteurs de recherche - june 15th, 15:30
- Contenu dupliqué et tag "canonical" - june 16th 11:30
I am pretty excited for this is the first time SMX comes to Paris... I'm also eager to meet the French SEO scene and see what they have to say about the poor state of search in France...
I'll be speaking at A4U expo in Munich (May 18-19th, 2010).
I'll be on the super affiliate panel on Day 2 about "Tips to Increase Productivity & Profit". Pretty exciting!
I guess I'll leave the tech tips to the other panelists and focus on some hugely underrated secrets... including... marshmallows! (I kid you not!)
Day 2 of CAC started way too early for my taste as I had my presentation scheduled at 9 a.m. Not to mention it's equally hard to get attendees out of bed in the morning hours after the first night of partying... but we finally joined forces with Peter van der Graaf and our joint session ended up "just as crowded as a Day 1 session" :))
Anyways, I got some good feedback on my Outsourcing talk (please contact me if you want a copy of the powerpoint) which always makes it worth the effort of putting it together in the first place.
The afternoon was dedicated to panels in the Grand Ballroom. I was a panelist on the first one and the accoustics were so bad it was basically impossible to hear the questions from the audience. Kinda defeats the purpose of Q&A panels. After a couple of hours of this, no wonder some panelists gave up...
See you next time, somewhere... :)
