Google Local SEO in 2013 was the topic at the first DFW Search Engine Marketing Association (DFWSEM) meeting of the year, and it started off with a bang. The room was packed and featured keynote presentations by our own Greg Gifford and Chris Silver Smith, who shared their secrets for successfully ranking local pages on Google.

We were at our usual location, but due to another large conference going on in the hotel we were relegated to the Spurs Room, which is right off the bar.
We’re in a different room this time. Just make your way to the bar and you’ll find us. #dfwsem

A few people took Grant up on his suggestion
The downside of meeting in this room is the size, and the first meeting of 2013 set a record for the number of attendees who registered online in advance. 117. (Thanks to each of you who did, it helps a lot.) Not to worry, that should not be a problem going forward.

Got to see some faces we hadn’t seen in a while. (Hope it’s not like the gym and we don’t see them again till next year.)
