    SEO Conferences
    Does anyone attend SEO specific trade shows or conferences?

    When SEO is covered at shows like Affiliate Summit, etc., you get such basic information it seems.

    I feel we are well versed on SEO practices but would really like to attend a conference or two that delves into in depth best SEO practices.

    Any suggestions?

    isn't and die to find out there is.

    Have you seen any of Wil Reynold's presentations at Affiliate Summit? He's one of the best, IMHO. If you've missed any, I would recommend going back and finding all the videos you can. He shares a wealth of information.

    I've been 3 times and it is well worth the $$$

    Plus, in San Jose you can go to the Google Dance at the Google Plex.
    It is a ZOO but you should go at least once.

    Agreed...the Wil Reynolds sessions are usually my favorite at AS.

    I also agree that Wil Reynolds is great.

    I highly recommend Webmasterworld Pubcon for in depth SEO. Matt Cutts of Google often presents along with many other respected speakers in the industry. I have been once, it was very educational.

    Generally speaking, I attend conference not for the educational value (almost all the content is available elsewhere for free/cheap anyway), but instead for their potential to rejuvenate me and spur me on.

    I've been to SES San Jose (2008) and to a couple of SMX Advanced conferences (2007 and 2009). As an affiliate, I didn't see enough value in SES to make the trip again...content was too basic and it's more geared towards the corporate crowd. SMX Advanced was definitely worthwhile for me, though; several discussions/presentations there got my mind in motion.

    I haven't been to Pubcon, but it seems to be a good conference to socialize with other webmasters (as opposed to the corporate slaves).

    Oh, and ditto to the comments about Wil Reynolds.
