Jill was kind enough to answer a few questions about the seminar, how she picked speakers and topics, why this seminar is different than others like SES or Pubcon as well as who would be the best people to attend. Here’s a sample:
There are an increasing number of conferences that offer search marketing information. What´s different about the High Rankings Seminars?
Ah, this is an easy one! There´s simply no other seminar that I know of where each speaker builds upon the information provided by the previous speaker. In fact, at many conferences I´ve attended, it can be the exact opposite. One presenter says one thing, and the next one contradicts him or her. It´s difficult for the budding search marketer to know who to believe under those circumstances. At the High Rankings seminar, we may not all completely 100% agree with each other, but for the most part, we use very similar techniques and have been for years. We know what works and what doesn´t through our many years of experience working on and testing things with our own and our clients sites. Our speakers don´t just talk or write about SEO and SEM, they do it every single day. And the really great thing that sets the HR seminars apart is that the attendees come away with a cohesive process that they can start implementing right away.
