Mikkel is joined by Anne Kennedy, Managing Partner of BeyondInk, to take a historic look at the Search Conference landscape and a historic look at the search industry. They answers the questions Do we have an industry at all? and will organic SEO ever go away?
They also discuss women in search and why are there so few and why are even less technical?
Mikkel and Dave discuss the constant conference clutter with all of the conventions overlapping each other.
Plus they discusses the DDOS ttack on Twitter and breaking news on Facebook on their purchase of FriendFeed.
Mikkel and Dave look back at their experience at the Search Marketing World conference in Dublin, Ireland and they discuss how organic questions keep coming up at sessions and how search engine reps are not able to answer them.
Mikkel returns from a conference in Iceland and tells us his tales of his wonderful trip. Dave brings up the subject of SEOs and their salaries and what we can do to make more money.
