Dallas-Fort Worth Search Engine Marketing Association Hosting Digital Marketing Conference Nov. 4-5

Attendees to get a unique opportunity to receive website reviews and learn about the new Google BERT update.

DALLAS – The Dallas-Fort Worth Search Engine Marketing Association is hosting the State of Search digital marketing conference in Dallas on Nov. 4-5 – an opportunity for attendees to hear from the top digital marketing experts, receive website reviews and learn about Google’s most important update in five years – BERT.

Jenny Halasz, Google Analytics expert and President and Founder of JLH Marketing, is scheduled to kick off the keynote speakers on Nov. 4 with her presentation “Your Search Diet: How Not to OverEAT.”

Other keynote speakers include local SEO expert David Mihm, Vice President of Product Strategy at ThriveHive, and Greg Gifford, a popular SEO speaker at conferences worldwide.

Gifford is scheduled to speak about SEO capabilities for Local Search. “My presentation will focus on opening people’s eyes to the fact that they probably need to be doing Local SEO for some (or all) of their clients,” Gifford said. “It’s also going to cover entity-based search – how Google uses real-world signals as ranking signals – and how the people doing traditional SEO can see what’s coming in the future by looking at Local SEO.”

Eric Enge, General Manager of Digital Marketing at Perficient Digital, will start off day two followed by Duane Forrester, Vice President of Industry Insights for Yext.

SEO, SEM, Paid Search, Facebook Ads, LinkedIn Advertising, Social Media, and Influencer Marketing are just some of the topics that will be discussed by speakers.
