Today marked the very first day of the Pubcon Las Vegas 2019, the 19th edition of the digital marketing event. I got the opportunity to attend the conferences again this year and follow the new developments in the SEO industry and in overall digital marketing.
Like every year, Brett Tabke, Pubcon’s founder, kickstarts the event accompanied by Pubcon’s Lead Moderator and Brett’s long time friend Joe Laratro, by inviting all attendees to enjoy breakfast while both were discussing Pubcon’s growth and future.
Once the intro completed, all 6 conference salons are opened and attendees may choose their own learning path during the day, depending on their preferred subject.
- SEO – Technical
- SEO – Linkbuilding
Pubcon Master’s Group Workshop
The Pubcon Master’s Group Workshops (shortened MG) are intense training sessions regarding a specific topic, given by industry leaders and well known figures in digital marketing. Each year, the very first day of Pubcon is exclusively reserved for these MG sessions, which are only available to Platinum pass holders.
I did have the opportunity to get my hands on one of these passes, I chose to go re-learn my link building skills. Since this is a pretty controversial topic, it’s hard to find good resources online, I was glad to be able to get consistent information from 3 different sources about this. The experts giving the talk were Ann Smarty, Dixon Jones and Marie Haynes.
Every time I go to Pubcon, I do my best to revive my Twitter from its ashes. In fact, I used my Twitter as a notepad and this article will have the purpose of beng a good recap of what I experienced during the conference. I’ll link the most relevant Tweets and add some comments on them in order to provide context. If you want the full feed, you could always check my Twitter here.
