SEOktoberfest 2009 rocked!

SEOktoberfest 2009 was really off the hook and by far the best conference I´ve attended! I never thought, we could actually make the SEOktoberfest experience even better this year, but with the addition of a whole new third day, going to the Therme Erding Royal Spa, getting steamed in the various saunas, and getting massages (I actually had two massages myself to get fit again), followed by an all new Friends & Family Dinner at Die blaue Donau, one of the best restaurants in all of munich, with a 18-litre bottle (!!) of fine bordeaux. This new day 2, right in the middle of the both conference days, was the best idea ever, to make the SEOktoberfest even greater. Because unlike last year, everybody came back all relaxed on day 3, and so we really had a great second conference day, as well as an even better party at Schützen Festhalle & Nachstich!

SEOktoberfest MVP-honors go to RSnake, who just blew everybody away with his 2 hour speech on some of the sickest stuff I´ve ever heard in my whole life! It´s just awesome to get a complete outside-of-the-industry view from an internationally renowned security expert, who just briefed the US Department of Defense at the Pentagon!

But although being a bit more on the blackhat side this year, SEOktoberfest wasn´t at all a BlackHat conference – there was loads of other WhiteHat stuff on Affiliate-Marketing, PPC, Social Media, Online PR and Linkbuilding etc.

And the best part about SEOktoberfest – the conference was everytime & everywhere! Not just in the conference venue people where sticking their heads together to discuss Online-Marketing and SEO stuff. Even at the spa people where sitting in a big round brainstorming new strategies to get more out of their online marketing efforts! That´s exactly why we made SEOktoberfest so small & exclusive!

I myself learned so much on these three days – I´m still pumped up with adrenalin to get some of the stuff I got in my head into Google´s index 🙂

Let me just give you one tweet by SearchEngineWatch Editor Frank Watson, which made me extremly proud:

#seoktoberfest get conference of the decade – danny may have started them but @mediadonis has taken them to the ultimate level

WHOA! Thank you so much!

Again -> Thanks to everybody, who made SEOktoberfest the greatest event I´ve ever attended! All experts, attendees, playmates & walk-ons – THANK YOU SO MUCH!
And a special thanks goes out to my SEOktoberfest Co-Host Quadszilla, Eventmaster Philip for his just awesome job, as well as Jan for helping us out with the venue (so much better then last year!) and hosting the WarmUp-Party!
