With a two-day, four track conference session covering Search Engine Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Affiliate Programs, and Webmaster Tech Issues, there is a session for everyone involved in online marketing and promotion.

On day two the sessions in the Affiliate Track include finding good affiliate programs, avoiding the traps and pitfalls, and a session called "The Golden Goose."

WOW! Great line up. This is a MUST attend event for me.

I'm still astounded that there are people back here that are NOT attending. Go figure


 8:13 pm on Jan 29, 2004 (gmt 0)

Are the speeches recorded/videotaped and made available to buy for those who cannot attend?


 8:22 pm on Jan 29, 2004 (gmt 0)

It would be nice conroy, but it just isn't possbile. There are serious photo release and privacy concerns that can't be challenged.


 8:40 pm on Jan 29, 2004 (gmt 0)

D@mn, I'ld give someone's right n*t to be there, but prior commitments are a problem. I've got some serious juggling to do to pull this off.


 9:21 pm on Jan 29, 2004 (gmt 0)

22 nights to sleep till my flight starts.

When to expect the entire list of speakers?


 9:55 pm on Jan 29, 2004 (gmt 0)

Damn I have just been in Florida, but it does sound great and I have to go to such a conference ones.

miss it, and miss the best conference about the internet. A fantastic line up as usual Brett!


 7:42 am on Jan 30, 2004 (gmt 0)

damn-it! I wish I could come there :(

>There are serious photo release and privacy concerns that can't be challenged.

What about a streaming live video or audio? I'd pay something for it.


 10:25 am on Jan 30, 2004 (gmt 0)

No - that would require 10's of thousands of extra work and many of the se reps would not agree to it. You can't do something like that without months of prep work. Agreements, lawyers, mechanics...etc.


 1:32 pm on Jan 30, 2004 (gmt 0)

hey guys, question, how much do one of these confrences cost to get in, **** i live 3 hrs from there ;)

Hello all,

I'm kinda new to this whole thing and am looking into coming down to this conference. It sounds very interesting and I think I can learn a lot from it! I called the hotel and they told me that all the webmasterworld rooms were booked.

The reservation person said that whoever was in charge of booking the conference would need to call Anne Huffman to request that more rooms in their sister facility (which is connected to their hotel) be opened to webmasterworld guests.

I'm not sure who needs to that but I would appreciate it if you could so we can get more space available. Thanks and I look forward to meeting all of you!

Great & shld see conference.......will some how ask my colleague in NY now to attend......Will it also cover googles latest austin update stories & realities?


 12:11 pm on Jan 31, 2004 (gmt 0)

It will cover everything you're interrested in, as long as you talk to people and ask them. :)


 12:27 pm on Jan 31, 2004 (gmt 0)

It will cover everything you're interrested in, as long as you talk to people and share with them. :)
I always find give a bit and get a bit.

Its too big a topic ...talking abt gogle algorithm & there updates......best is to concentrate on your content & keep building sites...if one fails in an algorithm , the other will succeed ...just keep tweaking different pages.....so that ur site gets visibility thru some page....this is my mantra



 2:55 pm on Feb 1, 2004 (gmt 0)

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm looking forwards to it! Just trying to put up with all the jokes about "he'll fly halfway around the world for a free beer..." :s


 8:14 pm on Feb 1, 2004 (gmt 0)

Just wondering why this thread is being deliberately kept at the top of the "active list", no-one has contributed in hours.........


 4:22 am on Feb 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

glengara: I just noticed that too. I guess it's a "sticky" thread.

Maybe a new feature in the forum software?


 8:22 am on Feb 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

Maybe a new feature in the forum software?

God, I hope not.


 4:20 pm on Feb 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

I think Brett is keeping this at the top because the PubCon is a few weeks away and wants to keep it in front of people just like the Publishers Conference Link beside recent post etc.


 5:04 pm on Feb 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

Not at all unimpressive Brett. Kudos to you, and to all who will reap benefits from attending. Alas, that doesn't include me, yet again. Perhaps someday my desire to vacation and my ability to vacation will coincide.

Perhaps someday my desire to vacation and my ability to vacation will coincide.

Perhaps someday the dates of PubCon and the dates of the conference my company runs for our cllients will not coincide! One more year and again I can't make it... though I'll be in Miami Beach in a couple of weeks for a visit anyway.

Seems it'll be better than ever this year, and I only hope that pattern continues and that I can get this other commitment moved to a different weekend next year!
