(Gawkwire.com) SMX West announces three workshops conducted by leading experts in search marketing have been added to the Search Marketing Expo schedule.

The workshops will be held March 5, 2010. Attendees can choose from:
Bruce Clay SEO Training: Bruce Clay is one of the most knowledgeable, experienced and quoted search marketers on the planet. Bruce’s SEO Training workshop teaches marketers how to implement an effective search engine optimization process. He’ll cover how a search-engine-friendly web site impacts traffic, conversions and online revenue. And he’ll get down to the nitty gritty, white-hat-only tactics that improve site performance.
Google Analytics Training: Google Analytics is free, but only valuable if you know how to use it. Learn to optimize web traffic and drive conversions by planning an analytics strategy, understanding reports and defining what constitutes success for your business. This workshop is led by experts Brian Clifton, the former head of Web Analytics for Google EMEA, and Feras Alhlou, a Google Analytics Authorized Consultant and founder of E-Nor, a web marketing agency.
In-house SEM Exchange: In-house search marketers face unique challenges. That’s why Jessica Bowman, a leading advocate for in-house SEO, created this all-interactive workshop focused exclusively on the issues faced by in-house search marketers. The content is guaranteed relevant because attendance is limited to in-housers. Attendees will share solutions and build relationships. It’s unlike any event you have ever attended!
