On Tuesday the 17th I’ll be at the Webmasterradio SearchBash party at the Ruby Skye Nightclub  from 8:00- Late…That’s always been one of the…if not the…craziest parties of the year…opps I meant craziest networking event…its not partying…it’s networking :)

Then luckily, I get to sleep in and get all my speaking done the next afternoon (wed), then “network” again all night.

On Wednesday Aug 18th, I’ll be at:

From 2:30 – 3:30

Link Building in August of 2010 with Jim Boykin
This isn’t your grandma’s link building session. Jim has been an industry leader in the area of link building for over 10 years as the founder and CEO of We Build Pages (www.internetmarketingninjas.com). Jim also won the search engine journal’s “Best Link Building Blog” in 2006 and 2007 (Jim rarely blogs anymore). Jim has seen and done it all when it comes to link building, and he knows which links effect search engine rankings, and the types of risks involved in certain types of link building. If higher search engine rankings are a major focus of yours, this is a “must attend” session. * Updated presentation for August 2010 SES.

  • Speaker:
    Jim Boykin, CEO and Link Building Ninja, We Build Pages Internet Marketing Services

5:00 – 6:00

How to Become a Link Magnet
Some people just have to sit at a keyboard and type for ten minutes. Some people spend a little time mashing up a video. And some people develop a cool tool or app. What happens next? They become link magnets.

In search marketing, where content is still king, we’ve talked about how to make your web site a link a magnet. But with social media and personal branding, developing a great presence online can turn you personally into a link magnet. Some people have. Thousands want it.

How can you develop your personal brand so that you only have to mouth an opinion and a gazillion links follow? Andy Warhol once suggested that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. And social media is certainly making that little prediction come true.

Find out from a panel of experts how you can have your (metaphorical) 15 minutes of fame, become a link magnet and dominate search engines.

  • Speakers:
    Aaron Kahlow, Chairman & Founder, Online Marketing Summit
    Rand Fishkin, CEO, SEOmoz.org
    Jim Boykin, CEO and Link Building Ninja, We Build Pages Internet Marketing Services
Then from 6:00- 7:00 I’ve been invited to be in on:

Black Hat, White Hat Un-conferenced
Not just a workshop, not just a party – but a little bit of both… debate issues that matter over drinks!

…but don’t think it’s  formal  at that one…

Then from 8:00 to 11:00 that same night,  it’s The Famous IM Charity Party!! – I’m proud that We Build Pages can help sponsor such a great idea (charity water)  that fellow marketer Shak came up with. Lauren has the Top 10 Reasons to attend this party, but do you really need more reasons other than helping charity, partying, and talking SEO all night?

I’ll then probably be heading out for Yosemite National Park and/or some other national parks for a couple of days.

Hoping to see you in San Fran!
I’m Feeling Lucky,
Jim
