Pubcon 2011 Presentations Posted Online

Coming back from Pubcon my mind is swollen with all the awesome knowledge shared by presenters and attendees alike. While I know that there was furious note taking and live blogging at the event, I’m a visual guy and it helps me to see the presentation that accompanies my notes. While you could wait for the USB with all the presentations to come out, I though I’d put together a list of all the presentations that have already been posted:

If you know of any I missed, leave a comment and we’ll add them.

Please forgive the lack of organization.

Plan Ahead

Showing up is great, but to REALLY get the most out of Pubcon you need to plan ahead.

    1. Networking – Review your LinkedIn, make a list of people you want to meet, arrange meetings ahead of time. This is your chance to meet the rockstars of internet marketing face-to-face.
LinkedIn Connections
    1. Sessions – Look at the session grid and pick which sessions you will be attending. Some time slots will be a no-brainer, but sometimes you have to choose between “SEO: Hot Topics and Trends” with Stephen Spencer, Jill Samprey and Greg Boser or “Increase Your Post Click Conversion Performance” with George Aspland, Brian Massey and Janet Driscoll Miller.
