Long gone are the days when SEO was about tweaking a few on-page elements or industriously building links and patiently waiting for your rankings to improve. There’s much more to doing effective SEO today, especially given the advent of machine learning and massive algorithmic shifts. We’ve got SEO sessions designed to ensure your continued online marketing success:
And a very special session, “All Google Manual Penalties Explained” presented by former senior Google Search Quality team member Kaspar Szymanski.
Paid search advertisers have plenty to keep up with — new ad formats, extensions, more sophisticated options for remarketing and retargeting and enhanced automation tools, to name just a few.
SMX London paid search sessions cover fundamentals like creating, testing and optimizing paid search ads and dive deep into advanced topics like bidding strategies and bid modifiers. We’ll also tackle thorny SEM issues, with sessions including:
Google continues to innovate and announce new products and services that benefit all search marketers. Juan Felipe Rincon, Global Lead, Search Outreach leads a team at Google whose mission is to help marketers create great online content and make it easily accessible to users. In this wide-ranging keynote conversation, he’ll discuss recent changes at the search giant and how they impact search marketers. Offering insights on everything from the rollout of Accelerated Mobile Pages to the long-awaited real-time Penguin update, he’ll also give you a glimpse at what the future holds for online marketing.
If you’re new to search marketing, SMX Boot Camp gets you up to speed. Boot Camp takes place on the first day of the show, Tuesday, March 21. Attend and learn the fundamentals in these sessions:

We all love the art and science of search marketing, the tactical aspects of optimization or bid management and the thrill of seeing analytics show successful and improving campaigns. But there are other aspects of online marketing that are often overlooked and as important. Each of the sessions below features a single speaker taking a deep dive into a topic, providing you with actionable, thought-provoking insights or offering the results of their own research you won’t want to miss out on:
All 30+ sessions I’ve described above are editorial sessions. Speakers were hand-selected because we feel they have great information to offer. And as always at SMX, no one bought their way onto a panel.
Each session is developed by a session coordinator who reviews speaking pitches and reaches out to industry experts to assemble a panel. They work with speakers to create sessions where presentations support each other, rather than overlap. Sessions are presented in several formats because different topics require different approaches. Formats can range from being lecture-style presentations with one, two or multiple people, while others are pure Q&A. That diversity is what makes SMX experience a diverse learning environment.
The entire editorial portion of the show is overseen by me and my co-chair Danny Sullivan. We’ve been organizing search conferences longer than anyone in the industry — more than 19 years and counting!
Our many SMX London sponsors and exhibitors also have great information to share with attendees. That’s why we provide several ways for attendees to hear from them.
The Expo Hall is open Tuesday, May 23, and Wednesday, the 24th. In it, you can get information from exhibitors and sponsors about the many products and services to accelerate your business and performance.
