Now that was cool!
After a week of throwing the idea around, I was convinced that I wanted to go to RainCamp in Denver - on the Saturday before. Seeing alot of the seats were already taken, I sent an email to Brad Andersohn to see if I could get in "standing room only" (although at that point, I was ready to invest $89 in the premium seats) He forwarded the email to Bob Stewart, who got back to me at 11:00 pm Saturday night to let me know they had opened some more $29.00 seats. Another notch in the belt for Blackberry's - I got the message, ran upstairs, ran back downstairs to get my credit card, and was punching in numbers as fast as I could to get the reservation. (thanks for getting back to me so quickly, guys!)
The best part of Raincamp for me was having experienced people in the business stand up and say "This is how you increase your SEO and google rankings. We've done it. It works. Don't spend thousands on an SEO company, here are tips and tricks to get it done." I've spent ALOT of time reading blogs, and websites, and information...and could probably keep reading stuff and still have questions. Questions answered. CHECK.
I got over 12 pages of usable, implementable notes - 2 of which are full of websites with tools to help make things easier and cooler. (unlike those CE classes where the notes are doodles of you sleeping in your bed...)
In fact, if I would've had to leave after the first morning break, I would've been happy and felt I got my money's worth - 6.5 hour one way trip included!
Now if only I could have a full week to take everything I've learned and put it to action. (hey - desk work and projects kinda pile up after being away from the office for 2 days and some...hence, the lateness of this post) (how many times can you use the word "hence" in one blog??)
On to more greatness of google SEO, keyword blogging, website re-working, IDX hosting finding, facebook paging, and twittering!
