Yabba Dabba Doooo! Ok, I have no idea what the Flintstones has to do with SEO training, but the point is… I’m excited. It’s that time of year again when we open up registration for the PRO Training Series: Tips, Tricks and Tactics. See! Now do you get why I’m so giddy? As with every year, we have a killer lineup of speakers including Tim Ash, Dan Zarella, Laura Lippay, Wil Reynolds, Marshall Simmonds, Will Critchlow. Plus we’ve brought back the highly acclaimed "Ice Cream Break" – you wouldn’t want to miss that.

Here’s the deal, last year we sold out quickly and, sadly, had to actually turn away a lot of requests. With a limit of only 310 attendees, the networking alone is going to be amazing. But that also means tickets will go quickly. The sooner you register, the better your chances of learning from top-notch speakers and networking with a unique group of advanced SEOs (Oh… and you get to hang out with JLo. heh.)
So, let’s just jump right into the details… or you can just go register.
Where: Westin Hotel, Seattle (This is where we had it last year as well, and it rocked!)
When: August 30 – 31, Plus an optional ½ day tools training on September 1 (65 person limit)
Price: 49 for general attendees
9 for PRO Members (that’s 0 off the regular price!)
Plus 5 for the optional tools training
Remember that killer lineup I mentioned above, well here’s the full list. As you can see the speakers cover a huge spectrum of knowledge an expertise. Plus don’t forget, the tickets are limited, so it’s a lot easier to get one-on-one time with them in this setting.
Check out the agenda for the full two days. We’re covering topics ranging from the Science of Twitter & Google’s Algorithm to Conversion Rate Optimization and Reverse Engineering your Competitors’ Rankings.
If you don’t believe me about the amazing networking that happens at the seminar, read How to Network at an SEOmoz Seminar After-Party from audiore. She wrote this after the seminar last year, and it’s a great guide to networking. Plus, where else can you geek out at the computer at a party? (see below)

If you can’t attend the seminar, or even if you do and just want to relive it forever, you’ll be able to purchase the training on DVD. We’ll have more information about that coming soon.
Don’t worry! If you’re wondering about the London Seminar, sign up below to get on the email list to learn more as soon as details are announced.

As you may have heard, SEOmoz has moved offices (woo hoo!). So we thought it would be nice to take you on a tour of our new digs. We’re quite proud that we outgrew the old space and needed a bigger place. Please follow along as I take you on a tour of the new office.
We are just a block from Pike Place Market, and within walking distance of Bell Harbor which is where SMX Advanced is held. We have the entire top floor! But let’s look at the good stuff… the inside.
First, as you first step out of the elevator you may think, "Wow, this really is a cool space." But then…
You look down at your feet and exclaim, "Wow! I feel the need to breakdance!" [busts a move]
Next, as you make your way through the Operations department (who used to sit in a back, very dark corner) you too will be in complete shock at the sunny, openness of the space. Just like this guy:
Holy big, bright awesome room batman! Yes we even have a meeting room called the Batcave [see below]. (Ok, the bat cave is a bright, sunny, room that does not resemble a bat cave in any way. But that’s ok, cuz we have a bat cave. damnit.)
Oh wait. What’s this?! Crepes, yes my friends. On "opening day" at the new moz office we had a crepe guy! "I’ll have one with nutella, strawberries and bananas please."
But seriously, we really have a lot of work to do. See, we’re working! Well at least Ben Huff is (the dude on the left).
Have I mentioned that Rand has an office… with a door… that he can close! This probably isn’t overly exciting for most people but for the developers who used to sit right outside his office (aka his desk) and listened to every phone call, webinar and Whiteboard Friday… let me tell ya, they’re cheering today.
Plus we have 5 meeting rooms now. We used to have one. Again… now there are F I V E. I was late to a meeting earlier because I couldn’t find Thunderdome. I thought it was in Spider Skull Island, but apparently those are different. heh. Boys named our meeting rooms if you hadn’t guessed that already.
Rand in sheer shock:
Plus really, who could resist having this right outside the window:
The only downside to getting a new office is that now we all have this silly dress code.
Wonder Twins… Activate!
If you’re going to be in town for SMX Advanced, we’ll have a few office tours set up. The dates/times will be announced soon, and we’d love to show you around in person!
