SES New York: Improve SEO Through Blogs & Feeds
Not everybody who owns a blog is looking for the big audience, but if you're in search or if you have a business focus you do want the atention.
The session "SEO through blogs & Feeds" focussed on the latter groups. With Michael Gray and Lee Odden there, two of the major blog-owners are there to talk about the subject which should be a guarantee for some fireworks. They are joined by Michel Leconte of SEOSamba.
First up is Michael Gray who lives up to his name by starting with two statements that don't lie: "Don’t write blog titles that suck" and Partial feeds suck".
Other things he points out:

Finally he gave a BONUS Tip: dynamically embed a link to post in your RSS Feed. It helps syndicaters and scrapers to link back to the original post.

He showed a table of how to meet your clients interactive. How to? Distribute broadly, make it easy: SEO the feed.
