Global Search Engine Marketing authors to speak at SES San Francisco 2012 Internet Marketing event

The authors of the popular book on search Global Search Engine Marketing, Kristjan Mar Hauksson and Anne Kennedy, are to speak during the upcoming SES (Search Engine Strategies) Internet marketing event in San Francisco, California, U.S., between 13th and 17th August 2012.

Kristjan Mar Hauksson and Anne Kennedy will be offering their expert knowledge on search behaviour in Europe during the Global SEM: Turn Right at Reykjavik – How to Reach Europe’s Biggest Markets session on day 2 of the event.

Aiming for Europe? It’s not as easy as you might think. Though allied under the EU, European countries are each unique, with diverse cultures, languages, and searcher behaviour. Google owns nearly all the search market share across Western Europe, which simplifies search marketing platform issues. However, helping Google bot understand just which market you are after is more complex, especially when languages cross borders, as do German and French.

This session will guide you through the key issues, with case studies to illustrate how successful global companies have tackled them.

Another key session during the SES 2012 event is Global SEM: Hidden Dragons—Mastering Search in Tempting Asian Markets, whereby the best practices to use at home to reach customers in China, Japan, or South Korea will be explained – Anne Kennedy is set to moderate this session, also.
