High Rankings Advisor 184

December 13, 2006

Hey everyone!


I had a productive and fun conference in Chicago last week.  It was great to
meet up with old friends and new.


And speaking of meeting up, we had an awesome response to the announcement
of our new search engine marketing networking organization for New England


Things are moving along nicely with SEMNE. We have signed up our first members and even have our first meeting planned.  It’s going to be held at the Newton Marriott in Massachusetts on March 6th, 2007 from 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM, so please save the date and time.


More info on this event — including non-member admission costs, who the
speaker will be, and what topic they’re speaking on — will be on the site
shortly.  If you want to keep informed about all the SEMNE events, meetings,
sponsorship opportunities, etc., please sign up for our SEMNE Alerts email.

I’ve got a variety of questions and answers for you today, so let’s get
straight to them! - Jill
