Official session description:
Your boss or client may think top rankings are gold, but veteran SEOs know those stats are so 20th-century they’re virtually irrelevant. So how do you measure – and more importantly, prove – the value of your SEO activities, especially in the age of personalized, unique search results? Speakers in this session have promised to "open up their kimonos" and reveal the really useful, measurable techniques they use to demonstrate the value of their work.

Presented with: Rob Bucci, Owner of STAT Search Analytics, Jon Henshaw, Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer of Raven Internet Marketing Tools, and Will Scott, President of Search Influence
