Lunch with Bruce Clay

6

In addition to domain conferences, I’ve also been to a number of Internet business conferences like SES and Ad:Tech. One speaker I’ve heard at these various conferences is Bruce Clay, a preeminent search engine optimization consultant.

Mr. Clay is a highly regarded speaker on SEO, and his panels and keynotes are usually some of the most well-attended. I’ve learned a good amount of actionable SEO tactics from hearing him speak, and I’ve always come away with something new.

This afternoon at DomainFest, I saw that Mr. Clay was eating lunch and there was only one person sitting at his 8-top table. I sat down with fellow domain investor Bob Olea, and we had a great conversation with Mr. Clay. I was able to ask questions, and I received answers that will surely help with my websites.

One of the best things about DomainFest is that you can meet experts in various fields, including search engine optimization.  I think the advice he gave me was worth the cost of admission.

  1. @Elliot,

    Of which notable sites has Mr. Clay been instrumental in development. I’d love to see firsthand, the work of an expert.

  2. @ Elliot,

    Actually, I was hoping for something more small-to-midsized, where SEO would actually make a difference. Anyone could get CNN, TBS, or MTV to rank high, based soley on the marketing dollars each of those organizations spend each year.

    I’ll look at Mr. Clay’s site to see if he has any other examples. Thanks.

  3. Nicely done Elliot. I followed Bruce around the expo hall floor at a SES show once listening to other people ask him stuff. Good times.

  4. Elliot, I’m sorry that you weren’t important enough to secure a seat at Bruce Clay’s table for his official lunch gathering. But I’m glad that you still got the opportunity to talk with him. 🙂
