Event coming up: Search Engine Strategies London 2009

Mon 2 February 2009 11:30, Bas van den Beld

February starts and with it the event-season really opens its doors. Last week Spain already hosted two events but from this month on a lot of search marketers will be away from home a lot.

Searchcowboys will off course be looking at all the events with a close look. Starting with the first ‘big’ event which is hosted in London on February 17th trough 20th: Search Engine Strategies London 2009.

Event coming up: Search Engine Strategies London 2009

As always Search  Engine Strategies aims at getting all those who have any interest in Search together in one venue. It does that by giving the visitors a broad program which is meant to please both those who just start off trying to optimize their pages and those who like to teach others.

Another big part of the event is the networking-aspect. Search Engine Strategies gives search marketers the chance to ‘hook up’ and talk to one another at the long lunches and the networking receptions and unofficial parties.

The program
To please all who visit, the agenda is divided in three tracks which all have their own specialty. Day one is all about Strategic Development with workshops on almost every strategic topic. The opening keynote will be done by Matt Mason, author of “The Pirate’s Dilemma’. After that you can follow sessions on for example Universal & Blended Search, Analytics, Mobile and Video Search.

On Wednesday, the second day, a panel with some big names out of the industry like Kevin Ryan, Rand Fishkin, Brett Tabke, Chris Sherman and Jill Whalen, moderated by Mike Grehan, will discuss where the SEO industry will be heading next. Talk about a good start of the day…


You can then pick a track of your choice: SES offers a fundamental, an Organic and a Advertising Track. On Thursday the tracks are more focused on those who want to take the next step: Beyond Fundamentals, Issues & Tactics and the “Improve me” track, which off course hosts the site clinic.

The Friday is not part of the ‘regular’ event. On that day you can follow training sessions which take half a day each.

The speakers line up is quite impressive this year. Off course the before mentioned panel members are impressive but the show also hosts names like Mel Carson, Liana Evans, Andrew Goodman, Greg Jarboe, Judith Lewis, Matt McGowan, Jon Myers, Martin Sinner, Mikkel deMib Svendsen and our very own Lisa Ditlefsen and Dave Naylor.


In the coming weeks Searchcowboys will take a closer look at the program and introduce you to some of the speakers and inform you on not to miss sessions. On the three event-days we will provide full coverage off the event.

The early bird registration ends today so if you want a discount, hurry up. Early Birds pay £895 for two days or £495 for a single day. After today you will pay £995 or £595. Registration will be open until the day the event starts. Register here.

  • Shaping up to be the best SES London yet I think, the content is looking great and I think attendees will get a lot from the sessions lined up.
