Year Kick-Start Panel: Panda, Semantics and GA

Hello fellow SE(M|O)s,

It's been a while, but let's get them bones a shankin'. 

As you know, this group is awesome. You are awesome. That's why we want to start the year with a small panel, a bit conversation, burgers, and beers. 

Expectation Note: topics are mid- to advanced level. Everyone welcome! 


Rob Woods - 

Twitter: Senior Online Marketing Manager / SEO for Reinvent and SEO Consultant. 
Me: One of the most experienced online marketers I know. He has worked with the big guys and presented at big conferences. Awesome guy. 

Talking about: Panda updates, what they were all about and a couple of tips learned from this update. 

Aaron Bradley

Twitter: In-house Internet marketer and analytics geek specializing in enterprise-level organic SEO.
Me: Semantic connoisseur, contributor for Search Engine Land (which means he knows a lot of what's going on), and awesome guy. 

Talking about: Semantic data that are being consistently picked up - what are they and what is worth paying attention. 

Jose Uzcategui - 

Twitter: Web Analyst at @CardinalPath

Me: For the last couple of years I've been in the middle of an SEO, SEM and GA storm that keeps me on my feet. The last year has been focused on analytics. And... I'm also an awesome guy :)

Talking about: New version and reports of Google Analytics - new reports, looks, etc. 


As usual, 

6:00 - 6:30ish - Talk, order food. 

6:30ish - 7:30 - Brief panel presentation and discussion

7:30+ - Talk, order more food.

    The presentations were very good! Giving each presenter an opportunity to speak for only 10 minutes made the format concise and left me craving more information. Jose was, as usual, a very amusing MC.
