Rising Media and Third Door Media, producers of the Search Marketing Expo conference series, today announced that Amit Singhal, head of Google’s core ranking team and Google Fellow, will be the opening keynote speaker at SMX London 2012.

Amit is internationally recognised as the man responsible for Google web search. His algorithm has become the foundation for Google’s search platform and Fortune named him one of the smartest people in tech. A Google Fellow, Amit was recently elected as one of the members of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).  

Danny Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief Search Engine Land and moderator at this year’s expo, said:

“Amit’s experience and expert advice is sought by industry analysts and corporate leaders looking to implement an effective enterprise and global search strategy. Quite simply, he is ultimately responsible for all searches done on Google. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear Amit’s thoughts on industry developments as well as networking with one of the foremost industry leaders.”
