Praise for the International Search Summit

"I've been to many different search conferences over the years, and not all the sessions are always helpful. However, the International Search Summit was worth every minute of my time. I had full confidence in the expertise of all the speakers since they had intimate working knowledge with both small and large sites, and provided great insights into the best tactics & strategies for both. I've been doing SEO since 2001, but I haven't dabbled much in the International space; so as an SEO veteran but an Int'l newbie, I was amazed at how some of the smallest considerations can have some big effects. I'd highly recommend the International Search Summit to anyone who is venturing into the International space or wants to improve their current search engine standings."
