This Post Is Dedicated To Matt McGee

How about this for a headline: Matt McGee, an Arizona Cardinals fan?

Matt McGee, a great friend of mine was such an awesome sport about this. Ok, maybe he was a little upset at himself for making this bet (The Arizona Cardinals would get further in the 2009 season than the Seahawks), but we had fun with it. To show my appreciation to Matt I wanted to make sure and post the pics for ALL to see. Here ya go Matt:

Overlooked Opportunities Track

Universal & Blended Search Opportunities – When Google introduced Universal Search in 2007, it sent shockwaves through the search marketing community. The typical reaction: “How can my optimized content rank when local, news, video and images results are pushing it off the SERPs” The simple answer is to optimize multiple types of “web assets” in addition to the text on your web pages, and you’ll often get more exposure on search result pages. Though the answer is simple, the SEO techniques to achieve the desired result usually aren’t. This session looks at the state of Universal search today, and how to leverage different types of content to gain maximum advantage.
