Shakil Khan is a legend in the industry. I don't normally go to keynotes, but this is one I wouldn't miss for the world. This is the keynote I am most looking forward to.

This is excellent news. If you're attending Pubcon, go and shake this guy's hand, and listen to what he says, you can learn a great deal.

Shak's a rare combination of a hands-on SEO, an international entrepreneur, and a man with a social conscience. Some of the tips he posted way back in Supporters are part of my ongoing SEO toolkit. I'm looking forward to hearing what he says about the rest.

Crap just plain crap I have to chose on a training this year. Not being in PPC for some time I lack detailed knowledge, I had to make a tough decision and go to a week of GA and Adwords.

I reviewed the PubCon training for this year and with very little PPC dedicated I just had to make the decision on PPC. I understand the Agenda with all that has happened you have to dedicate the vast majority to the updates and all the changes it has brought.

This announcment is wonderful for PubCon but really makes it hard for me not to go. Man.

Since when is Brad (ewhisper) Geddes 'very little' PPC!? The guy knows more about PPC than most employees at Google AdWords. Follow that with the internets' hyper conversion specialists, Bryan and Jefferey Eisenberg, and you have more AdWords knowledge in one track, than you find on 50% of the Google AdWords team itself. Sir, this is the best PPC track of any conference you can go to this year, last year, and next year.

Undestand I did see that my problem is Brett I have been 4 years out and need more than 1 hour. This is a great for those that have been active in PPC/GA I have not that is my problem. With some new website launches and the amount we will be spending I have to spend more time with a group dedicated to this. Jezze the conference is powerpacked if I could I would go to both just budget won't allow it.
No offense was ment to the conference I was just feeling down because I had to make the choice.

Shak, you've got one of those uncommon business minds that sees the forest, the trees and the planet - all at once. I'm looking forward to this very much.

Wow... he was such a great contributor back in his WebmasterWorld mod days. Some awesome keynotes at Pubcon this year. Gotta get going on making sure this one fits in my schedule (missed the last one, but really want to make this one).
