Hi guys! An SEO training/conference will be held near me in Manila, Philippines. It's around $190 for a whole day event which is cheap compared to SEO seminars in the US. But converted to our money, that's a lot of money. The speakers will be Todd Malicoat, SEM Consultantand Internet Marketer, Stundubl.com and Charlie Ellis, SEO Strategist, Gallantfish.com. I haven't heard of them so maybe anyone among you has heard of them. Are they great speakers? Are they considered as "gurus"? Here are the topics BTW, 1. Intro and Terminology (4D of SEO) 2. Keyword research and Opposition Analysis 3. Competitive Analysis and KOB Scoring 4. Information Architecture and Accessibility 5. On-Site Optimization (Page & Domain Optimization) 6. Off Site Optimization 7. Localization, Personalization, Vertical-ization, and Business Models 8. Project Management and SEO Tools 9. Improving Trust and Value (Brand & Credibility Indicators) 10. Tracking SEO Personally, I don't consider myself as an SEO expert yet. But I'm knowledgeable. In last year's SEMCON event, I read that the speakers stayed behind for a networking party. I'm thinking that the networking that I'll get here will be worth it. So will you guys attend if given the chance?
