NEW YORK, NY—(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Conductor, the leader in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) technology, today announced its presence at the world’s leading search engine marketing conference, SMX West, taking place Feb. 28-March 1, 2012 in San Jose, Calif. Seth Besmertnik, CEO of Conductor, and Nathan Safran, Senior Research Analyst, join other top professionals in the fields of SEO, PPC, social media marketing, local and mobile search, etc., as featured speakers.

The SMX West conference agenda is programmed by the editors of Search Engine Land and offers more than 60 sessions of thought-provoking, compelling content that search marketers can put into practice immediately. Seth Besmertnik will offer his expertise on search marketing and competitive analysis during a discussion on Feb. 29 at 10:00 a.m. (#smx #22B). Moderated by Search Engine Land Contributing Editor, Pamela Parker, Seth will offer advice on how to create a scalable SEO command center that comprehensively tracks the SEO strategies of major competitors in order to identify new SEO opportunities.

Nathan Safran will participate in the Analytics and Tools Track during the March 1 lunch session, Life in a [Not Provided] World (#smx #33B), beginning at Noon. This session will evaluate Google’s decision to encrypt search results for all logged-in users, and consequently strip the search query from the referral string.
