    The Premier Event for Search Engine Marketing & Optimization
    Returns to Chicago December 13th-16th After Record-Setting Crowds in 2003!
    "Search" is the hottest topic in marketing. Period.

    There's no debating it. If you missed last year's Standing-Room-Only Search Engine Strategies events in Chicago last December or in New York this March, you must attend this show in Chicago December 13th-16th. SES Chicago alumni need to attend as well because this industry keeps reinventing itself at an amazing pace as last year's cutting-edge program already is dated. Last year we expected a smaller crowd than our record-setting San Jose event, and instead Chicagoland & Midwest marketing & search professionals smashed those attendance figures by turning out in huge numbers. Join your fellow marketers and SES Alumni to quickly learn how to maximize search engine marketing opportunities and stay informed of the latest search developments and solutions in this area - you can't afford to be left behind!

    Event Overview:

    • Organized by world-renowned search authority Danny Sullivan.
    • Delivers real-time actionable information you need to grow your business through search engine marketing.
    • Teaches the ins-and-outs of search engine marketing from top search experts and the search engines themselves.
    • Provides a unique setting to network with fellow marketers and search engine industry professionals and discuss the trends in search engine marketing.
    • Grants access to the world's most comprehensive gathering of search engine marketing & optimization-related solutions providers and potential partners & affiliates

    Search Engine Strategies Conference & Expo 2004 features presentations and panel discussions that cover all aspects of search engine-related promotion.

    What You Will Learn:

    • how search engines list Web sites for free and through paid placements
    • how to get free "organic" traffic by building a site that pleases search engines and your visitors
    • how to efficiently purchase listings guaranteed to rank your company at the top of search engine results.
    • how to calculate the ROI of your search marketing efforts by tracking your visitors from the time they hit your site until they buy - and get tips on improving conversion if they don't!
    • how to build links that generate traffic to your Web site, and how to avoid the penalties of "spamming" the search engines
    • what's coming next in the constantly evolving world of Web search, and how you can profit from those changes

    Don't Take Our Word for It!

    Join the thousands of satisfied Search Engine Strategies participants who have attended SES world wide since 1998. Here is what some recent attendees have said about SES:

    "Exceptional! A world of knowledge and information in three short days. I highly recommend this event for anyone looking to increase their exposure and rankings in the search engines." Elizabeth Harvey, Harvey Marketing Group

    "Great Conference—I learned a lot about what we're doing right, and what we need to improve upon in our search marketing efforts. I like the fact that the presentations were not a bunch of sales pitches (like I've seen at other conferences). The speakers were truly interested in informing the attendees and helping us learn. In addition, the exhibitors were helpful and very relevant to our business needs. Would like to have seen more SEO's exhibiting as that is a need we have. Keep the after hours events. I did more business there than in the entire conference! " Melissa Mackey, Magazineline

    "This was invaluable to growing our SEM business. We are changing our service mix and revamping our Web site based on what we learned in this seminar—it will easily pay for itself!" Diane Whittakin, Page Forward Design
