SMX West - San Jose, CA

Search marketing continues to be the biggest and most powerful form of digital marketing. Search Marketing Expo has been the leading conference for SEO & SEM professionals since 2007, helping thousands of marketing practitioners succeed with actionable tactics.

  • You’ll leave SMX with tactics, tips and techniques you’ll implement immediately to drive traffic, convert visitors and grow your business.
     
  • SMX is programmed by Search Engine Land, the search marketing industry’s publication of record. You get all the great Search Engine Land content -- live -- from Search Engine Land’s editors and industry thought leaders.
     
  • There’s always a paid search advertising session for you to attend. SEM. All day. Every day.
     
  • You'll always find a session on search engine optimization happening. SEO. All day. Every day.
     
  • Fluent in search marketing? SMX speaks your language, with no dumbing-down. You’ll find many sessions that address SEO and SEM at a high-level.
     
  • New to SEO and SEM? The SMX Boot Camp gets you up-to-speed and prepared for the rest of the conference and to get to work.
     
  • The format of SMX sessions are carefully selected to match the topic. Solo sessions offer deep expert dives. Panels provide a variety of viewpoints. Roundtables ditch PowerPoints when 100% discussion is helpful. Clinics address your specific needs.
     
  • Ever been stuck at a single-track conference and bored with a particular topic? SMX’s multiple tracks means there’s always a session of interest going on. No yawning!
     
  • The SMX Expo Hall is the largest gathering of search marketing solution providers. You’re certain to find one that helps you do your job better.
     
  • Attendees. Speakers. Exhibitors. Meet them at structured and informal networking events. You’ll make valuable and lasting connections.
     
  • SMX is the only event that’s 100% search marketing. We passionately believe that SEO and SEM deserve the spotlight. You’ll love coming home to a place that celebrates your work.
     
  • SMX isn’t backed by a software company or digital agency. It isn’t a customer event that dabbles with the occasional search topic. SMX unbiased, vendor-agnostic content designed to help you succeed.
