Jan 23 2012
Now that 2012 is in full swing there is a new season of conferences ahead. I am excited to be attending the following conferences in the upcoming weeks. One is fun but I had to throw it in since I am so excited about it and the other two are geared around website marketing, search optimization, social media and analytics. It is my philosophy in order to build a better website all these factors must be taken into consideration.
Due to costs and budgeting I try to attend conferences that are close to where I work and live. There are more coming up later in the year Google IO has moved to the summer and the first International Joomla Conference will be in San Jose this fall along with WordCamp in San Francisco for WordPress.
Stitches West! One night and two days yarn and yarn related products.
This is one of the premier knitting conferences in the US. Knitters, crochet, spinners and weavers take over the Santa Clara Convention Center. This is the weekend for yarn inspiration
SMX West – Three Days of Search Marketing
In my opinion another one of the best conferences in the US for Search Engine Optimization, Marketing and Social Media. I always wish I could be in two places at once at this conference.
GaugeCon – Two Days of Google Analytics
I attended this conference for the first time last year and came out with a better understanding of GA and what each of the different tools can do. GA was recently updated and has an entirely new UI so there are more features to take advantage to analyze data and get the best conversion rates.
I have done some live blogging in the past not sure I will do it for these conferences.
If you are attending any of these conferences please introduce yourself it would be nice to meet you IRL.
