SEO expert Stephan Spencer opens up his toolkit to share insightful information that demonstrates each tool in action using audience members’ sites.

If you want the “secret sauce” to rocketing past your competitors in the search results, this session is for you.

  • Learn how to gain higher rankings through “The Long Tail,” blogs, social networks, widgets, APIs, spiders, and more
  • Obtain the tools and techniques to “reverse engineer” competing sites that outperform yours in Google
