Searchmetrics’ CEO Horst Joepen will reveal the specific examples of overdone SEO, and how to know if you are a candidate for being hit by the next Panda update. Searchmetrics is the first company to analyze the impact of the International Google algorithm changes, which took effect on August 12, and has recently published their findings on the Searchmetrics blog located here. Joepen will be discussing this latest data, including the winners and losers of the update, during his panel presentation.

“Attendees at SES San Francisco should recognize that the goal of staying ahead in the search world will always be a challenge,” said Dr. Horst Joepen, CEO, Searchmetrics. “The key is to leverage SEO to improve your offer rather than to play tricks – this is the important thing we are seeing with organizations that have and will continue to succeed through the recent Panda updates and in the future. Our technology can quickly determine the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ in any given update but more importantly we have evidence about the best practices for successful optimization and we’re looking forward to sharing them at the conference.”
