Q&A With Google & Bing On Website Ranking

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Google is the web's most popular search engine. Being listed well in Google can generate hundreds, thousands or even millions of visits per week. But for many, it's a mystery about how and why Google ranks one site over another. Meanwhile, Bing "powers" results at both Bing and Yahoo, making it another important traffic source. In this session, representatives from both companies answer questions about how they list and rank web sites. Get your search engine optimization (SEO) questions answered directly from the companies that list you.

LEVEL: Intermediate
