I’m lucky or unlucky depending on your point of view to catch 20+ industry events a year. I’m just back from my first SEOmoz event and it set the bar in 2010 for an informative, relevant, and well executed event. I learned a ton of useful info from nitty gritty SEO geek tips to how others are selling SEO services in the market. Just because I ran a Search Engine in the late 90’s means little in a world of continual new tactics and technology. It was refreshing to take two days and dig in on SEO. My hat it off to Rand and the team for a great conference and they are definitely on my 2011 list.
