Follow what's going on at SMX West

The final day of SMX West is about to start. After the much talked about keynote by Danny Sullivan yesterday, today on stage we can see appearances by for example John Batelle and Matt Cutts.

For most Europeans this event is too far away so we will have to do with the coverage provided by others. But where to look for coverage on this event which is one of the most interesting in the world at this time?

There are several ways you can 'follow' SMX West. If you really have the time and don't want to miss out on anything you'll want real time coverage. But if that's too much for you you can also read back many blogposts. We want to give you an overview of where you can find coverage.
