Search Engine Strategies: The Original Search Marketing Event

This is a rebirth of Search Engine Strategies, the original search marketing conference. The first Search Engine Strategies took place in November 1999.

In recent years, Search Engine Strategies expanded its agenda beyond search to cover more aspects of digital marketing and rebranded as the SES Conference & Expo. And the SES Conference & Expo series has since rebranded to ClickZ Live, with the first event taking place in New York in April.

To be clear: ClickZ Live isn’t going away. ClickZ Live events will continue to be geared toward covering the entire scope of digital marketing, with upcoming events in Toronto in a couple of weeks, San Francisco in August, and Chicago in November.

“SES Conference & Expo” is the only brand that is gone. For months, we have been planning to revive Search Engine Strategies to be entirely search-focused, as detailed throughout this post. We recognized that as ClickZ Live embraced more of digital, there is still a need to cover search in-depth.

Going In-Depth on Search

The idea behind the new Search Engine Strategies event in Atlanta (and coming to additional U.S. cities soon, including Denver on October 16) is really a return to its roots, with the emphasis on organic and paid search. It is brought to you and programmed by Search Engine Watch and our parent company Incisive Media, in association with SEMPO.

Search is a huge driver of business (search accounted for 43 percent of all Internet ad revenues in 2013, $18.4 billion, according to the Interactive Advertising Bureau) but is extremely complex, so attending a Search Engine Strategies event is a great way to stay up to date, stay competitive, and stay visible in the search engines.

The mission of SES remains the same as it did from the start: to help you master the basics of being found on search engines, and then expand to advanced tips and tools to take your results and career to the next level.

SES Atlanta will give you an in-depth education where you’ll have the opportunity to learn from, and network with, the industry’s top practitioners and innovators, as well as other attendees.

Hope to see you there!
