Track 3
Twitter Nation
Within the dramatically expanding social network space, Twitter has become everybody's darling ever since major companies like Dell publicized how many millions of dollars they are actually making via this 140-characters-is-enough micro blogging platform. Of course, the real question is how to bring your message across this huge stream of endless tweets and how to actually be heard in an ocean of white noise without breaking the bank. Obviously, automation is key here - but it does require a lot of insight into the actual mechanics of Twitter in general and online conversations in particular: which automation tools to use? How can you prevent getting your account banned? Treading the fine line between ripping success and utter failure - it's about the right kind of credible interaction. Learn why subtle, "suggestive marketing" works best on Twitter - and how to automate that effectively, too. Plus, effective strategies to outpace your competitors.

Track 2
Meaningful SEM Metrics New to the Toronto Agenda
As knowledge of SEM practices moves from the offices of the optimizers to the board room, the standard metrics used by the practitioners of this former dark art are straining under the weight of the all powerful bottom line. The days when upper management was impressed by subtle changes in Page Rank have been replaced by questions of LTV and ROI. As more resources are being dedicated to creating the perfectly optimized and keyword rich landing page, C-level executives are demanding proof of the return they are receiving from these resources. This panel will discuss a myriad of ways to move beyond Page Rank, indexed pages or linked sites and into metrics that can make you a hero and, better still, get your budget increased to a respectable level.

Advanced PPC tactics can actually be more fun than basic ones, because you get to activate both left and right brain power, tapping into your own unique aptitudes as well as your customers' deepest desires. This session covers campaign expansion techniques, advanced ad testing, advanced auction theory, the proper use of relevant analytics reports, ideas for bid rules and campaign automation, techniques for acting on seemingly inconclusive data, and more.

Introduction to Information Retrieval on the Web New to the Toronto Agenda
This session could well be entitled "How Search Engines Work" as it delves into the methods used by crawler based search engines such as Google. Understanding how search engines gather information from billions of documents and index them is essential knowledge for search engine marketers.

  • Find out how search engine crawlers work
  • Find out how keywords are weighted and indexed
  • Find out how hyperlink based ranking algorithms work
  • Find out how end user behavior can affect ranking
  • Find out how to future proof your search marketing strategy in a new decade of search


And it's all broken down into simple-to-understand terms and analogies.

  • Solo presentation by:
    Mike Grehan, CMO & Managing Director, Acronym

Track 1
Search, PR & the Social Butterfly New to the Toronto Agenda
RT this. Take social media to the boardroom! Social media continues to spread its wings with the advent of Google Social Search, Bing, Twitter Search and Yahoo's Twitter-like moves. With the demise of traditional media outlets and the rise of search and social, PR firms have also gotten a big lift and muscled in on the territory once ruled by advertising agencies. Time to eighty-six the anachronistic press kits and media lists and hand over the keyword rich online status updates and Twitter feeds. Don't miss this opportunity to hear firsthand from online PR/social media pros that bridge the best of both worlds while influencing SEO via Profiles, Fans, Tweets, Friends and Follows.

Track 2
Facebook Feeding Frenzy: Targeting Opportunities, Privacy Challenges New to the Toronto Agenda
Facebook and other social media platforms (Twitter, LinkedIn) offer tremendous new segmentation and ad targeting opportunities to marketers. Ahead-of-the-curve marketers are already researching segments, evaluating strategies, testing ad creative, and getting into the weeds measuring performance in this unprecedented targeting playground where interconnected users are willing to openly share their interests and content. But is it all too easy for marketers because Facebook et al. are cavalier about privacy and disclosure? Is a user backlash or a regulatory firestorm on the horizon? Canada is notorious in that its Privacy Commissioner openly challenged Facebook on its default settings and disclosure. Which way will the wind be blowing in a year's time? Panelists explore both the opportunistic and paranoid perspectives on social media marketing. Take your pick.
