What do these 3 things have in common? SEO, coolness, and CONTEST!… So does Mike really deserves to win this contest?

BlueGlass TPA

BlueGlass TPA (Tampa, Florida) search marketing conference will have a tight group of SEO professionals. Smaller group means more opportunity to brain storm with with the mega minds of SEO. (Only 20 seats left… )

Authority Labs

Phoenix based company, Authority Labs,  is offering a free ticket to Bleuglass. They are pretty cool and their software rocks SEO socks as well.

Mike Halvorsen employee, who fought an Epic SEO Columbus battle, and likes to speed down Seattle street ways in Aston Martins. He also played a sweet game or two of pool with Mr. Matt Cutts of google.
And if you get Mike and Dennis G. together you will bet a lot more of this…
SMX-Thos003 (95)
Or we could look at this in a new light. Mike Halvorsen knows how to shoot a gun. So to Terrorist Proof an Airline, TPA, Mike wearing some handlebars is the way to go.

Who Deserves That Ticket to the Upcoming BlueGlass TPA?

And here are a few take aways I got from last years Florida trip:

Will be my first time in Seattle and first SMX event.  Looking forward to getting away with my wife for a few days as well. Just making some last minute preparations.  Tweaking a website here and there…. But what I am most eager to share are these shirts:

I am Michelle McManus, and I am inspired by Physics. What more do you need to know about my SEO qualifications?  @OHLtweets

“There is always a message to get out, and you are always hoping for an action, but if you push too hard you end up cannibalizing any of the time spent on getting the message out there.” @JoannaLord

(yes I did that on purpose)



The funniest thing about this shirt is that by the time you realize it’s a joke it’s too late to stop the permanent stamp my website is leaving on your brain.

“Getting your quote on a t-shirt is like good SEO. Build a good website, put it in front of the right people, and it will be found. Say something worth repeating in front of the right person and it will get quoted.”

~ @tshirtSEO

BTW if you take me too seriously then you don’t really know me… but get to know me and then you can take me seriously… on the serious stuff of course.



Here goes SMX ADV – Seattle 2010

If you want a shirt and you’re not on the list then you better tell me NOW.

BTW- Thanks Matt for the post! Good Example of Getting Yourself Known. Just so you know that post was completely unprovoked and was not requested.  Thanks again Matt and the pleasure was all mine.
