The Changing Landscape of Paid Search

SMX Advanced has long been regarded as the mecca for search engine marketers. Its known for being the source for “advanced” level content and breaking search news. This year I was given the honor of participating in not one session, but two!

James Svoboda presented at SMX Advanced 2016 in Seattle.

While I was originally there to present for the 9 Billion Ads of Paid Search session, the nice folks at Bing Ads asked me to join their Search Hacks session with some of my favorite PPC people Melissa Mackey and Christi Olson. They podcasted it and I’ll be sharing it with you when I find a copy.
