Lisa Barone’s recap of the recent Scary SEO unconference held in Florida at the end of last week.


Looks like everyone had a real good time, and came away not only with new friends and contacts, but more knowledge and useful information, too. Some of the event was also shown live via IMbroadcast (look out for the Rhea-Ra video!).

Said it on Twitter during the event, said it in comment to Lisa’s post and I will say it here. The big conferences need to take notices of this format or they will be in trouble. As the amount of soup-to-nuts knowledge that was addressed during conversations because you had many perspectives talking to a point and not just three people on a panel to tons of attendees that only get to ask three questions before being rushed to their next session -- was the golden nugget of this event.- Christopher HartDirector, Eastern Region OperationsBruce Clay, Inc.

The success of this conference was based 100% on the attendees. They really made the event a success. It was so great to have such an amazing experience with so many amazing people.

Fantastic show! My expectations were completely blown away. There was something for everyone, and because the pricing was right I had my whole team there: SEO, SEM, and copywriters. They all took back valuable takeaways and we are just getting started in unearthing all the gems in our notes that we plan on utilizing.Props all the speakers. More props to Dave, Jordan, Loren, Samantha, and all the organizers and sponsors. This show was a huge success!

I agree with Chris, and not only that... because it was smaller, you got all kinds of "nuggets" from personal conversations, too.  The bigger conferences can be a bit overwhelming... and more people around can eliminate that opportunity to get into something with somebody.  I’ve heard this about smaller conferences before.Also, it’s obvious that when you get a conference full of people who blog and twitter, you get automatic mega PR... the tweeting that went on during the conference was just as important as the verbal discussion.  At future conferences, the speakers should be able to see them as well.  Need two projectors- one for presentation and one for twitter hashtag monitor.

This conference wouldn’t have been the same without PAISLEY!Thanks to everyone for making it a great success though. I’m lucky to have a great partner like Dave Snyder who has ingenious ideas and works hard to make ’em happen.
