Benchmark Search Conference

Book your place at Benchmark Search Conference 2017 to get practical, profitable ideas from search marketing innovators who are at the top of their game. Learn how they’re shaking things up at their own brands as they discuss their success stories and share the latest strategies and techniques.

The one­-day event features world­-class speakers that cover all of the need­-to­-know search marketing topics to develop and advance your brand’s search engine presence, including:

  • Organic search (SEO) – how to achieve and maintain your brand’s ranking in natural search engine results and ensure your customers can easily find you
  • Paid search (PPC) – driving targeted traffic to your website by showing ads in search engine results when people search for related keywords
  • Social media – enhancing brand awareness and advocacy to support your search visibility; your social authority is increasingly considered by Google as a ranking factor
