Social Scene Recap – SES San Jose 2007

As my current clients can probably vouch for, I’ve been scarce for the past ten days or so–last week was a whirlwind tour of pubs, pizzerias, and parties. Oh, and a few very entertaining sessions at SES San Jose :).

With all of the truly amazing people in the SEO community, it’s shocking to me that the profession has gotten such a bad rap among traditional advertisers and traditional media. Even the experts in the field are down-to-earth, straight-shooting folks who know how to have a good time! A few bad apples on the fringe of the industry seem to be spoiling the entire bushel…

So, for those who are interested, here’s quick list & a few links to the terrific people I’ve met and/or enjoyed hanging out with again for the past three weeks (in order of appearance):

  • It was great to meet you at SES as well David!

  • Hey Jon, looking forward to seeing you again at future conferences.

  • Hi David,

    It was great to meet you at SES. I’m humbled to be on your list!

    Your work, and our conversation warrant a strong recommendation. Send any skeptics my way and I’ll tell ’em you’re well worth the time and cost 🙂

    All the best,

  • Did I give the impression that I was a fan of Matt? I need to correct that. I’m terrible with names and wasn’t a big SEOmoz reader until recently, so I didn’t recognize him, all I knew was he had on a He-Man shirt and that rocked beyond belief. 🙂

    Regardless, it was great meeting you and I’m enjoying all of the recaps. Btw, your blog is pretty.

  • Hey David, thanks for the mention, it was great to see you again, too. See you at the next one (pubcon?)

  • Ahhh… the best part of search marketing events – real life social networking. Thanks for the mention and it was definitely great to meet you, look forward to the next time we get to speak in person!

  • David,
    Thanks for adding me to your list and for the complement. 🙂
    BTW-Frank’s last name is Watson.

    I agree he’s a good one to add to a “terrific people list”

    Hope you’ll be at PubCon!

  • Wow, thanks for stopping by, all of you guys! Definitely hoping to make it to PubCon, we’ll see how the next couple of months go, business-wise.

    Incidentally, Barbara, I don’t think that is the same Frank from Australia that I met, but I’m happy to drop him a link also!!

  • Greetings, I just want to add a comment to what you’ve posted, it’s nice and well informative for me. I just came across your blog and wanted to
