I’m really looking forward to giving this year’s Pubcon presentations, not only because I’m heading to Las Vegas, November 8-12 for the longest running internet marketing conference, but because in both sessions, I get to speak about things that I have a strong passion for.
This year I’ll be speaking in two sessions, the first one is going to be called Tweaking WordPress and Installations
and it will be on Tuesday, November 9, at 1:30 PM in Salon E.
The Wednesday session is going to be about Web hosting and SEO, and it’s also in the same room at the same time the next day – Wednesday, 1:30pm in Salon E.
WordPress SEO and Installation
For the session on WordPress, most of my slides will cover some very efficient plugins, while one of the other speakers will be making the anti-plugin case for why you should hardcode some of those same functions into the theme.
It should be interesting, and these presentations are going to be a little shorter – We cut to 10 minutes max, so there will be plenty of time for Q&A with a live and local WordPress installation running on the screen, where each of us has already uploaded our preferred plug-ins and themes.
Web Hosting & SEO
In the web hosting slides, I’ll be touching briefly on some really fast troubleshooting tips for performance, buy the rest of my hosting presentation will focus on malware; The identification, the removal, dealing with Google webmaster tools, and finally giving some thoughts on preventing reinfection.
It’s a lot to cram into 14 minutes, but anyone who’s heard me speak knows that I talk pretty fast – Also, this year I’ve learned a lot after dealing with some nasty hacks and viruses, and can really offer some timesaving tips dealing with this stuff.
The schedule was released for the Pubcon 2011 Lunch Schedules , and I’m going to be hosting the WordPress table on Thursday, so if you have any questions or want to talk WordPress, I hope you’ll come by.
Pubcon Poker Tournament
I’m also happy to announce that SEO Automatic is going to be one of the co-sponsors of the fourth annual Purpose Inc Poker Tournament, and this year it will be at the Mirage, Tuesday November 09, 2010.
It’s only going to be a $100 entry fee this year, and he promises better organization than ever. Ill be there, and if you want to attend, Registration opens tonight at 8PM PST.
