This expo is a great opportunity
Buffalo, NY (Vocus) October 9, 2010
Rokstok, a leader in the online jewelry marketplace, attended the Search Marketing Expo East (SMX East), in New York City on October 4-6, 2010. The in-house search engine optimization (SEO) team went to the expo in order to keep current on the latest technology changes with such sites as Bing, Yahoo, Google, Ask, and others.
“The changes that take place with search engines happen so frequently that it can be difficult for people to keep up,” explains Andrew Moquin, president and CEO of Rokstok, an online global marketplace for jewelry, including engagement rings and rings of all kinds. “It is especially important for merchants to keep up on the changes taking place so that they can use the information to keep reaching their potential customers.”
The SMX East expo is one of several that are offered through SMX Conferences. They involve a variety of search engines and programming professionals that provide information, opinions and updates regarding the status, goals and changes in the search engine field. Since 1999, the company has held over 50 search engine marketing events.
The event which Rokstok team members attended featured an agenda that included a boot-camp track, social and YouTube track, advanced track, and more. Specific topics covered included copywriting, link building and paid searches, among others.
“This expo is a great opportunity,” adds Moquin. “The information you learn at something like this is invaluable and will result in a solid return on investment.” Moquin goes on to say, “The online search environment has become so competitive for product categories like jewelry, engagement rings, and wedding rings so we need every advantage possible.”
