Apologies for my piss poor attendance in class.
Got back from the SEO conference in Las Vegas and have slept oddly and been late for work most days. Good job I have a cool boss!
Lots of useful seminars at the conference, one on on link buying was good, as was a guy who talked about affiliate opportunities. I'll post later this week (I promise) in more detail about these and other useful sessions. Plus there was a killer site review session.
In the meantime read Matt Cutts and Danny Sullivan who write about their experiences in Vegas. These guys are like the equivalent of pop stars to sad SEO geeks like myself. Also webproworld has lots of recap articles.
