Episode Info: The Booster Seat Season 2 Finale Hey there Boosters! I'm Andrew Eagar. Welcome to another edition of The Booster Seat. Today, I want to talk about the conference I attended a week ago called SMX Advanced. Well, let's get started! About SMX Advanced SMX Advanced is one of the best SEO conferences out there. It is located in Seattle and it is for SEO agencies such as myself and in-house SEOs to gather together and learn some of the best SEO tactics in the industry today.

With that shared role comes something pretty exciting which Google has announced and that is with their transparency. This is kind of exciting. This is kind of a new initiative to Google - to be more transparent. Before all this, Google had announced, "No we are not going to be transparent; we are not going to show you everything that has happened." But, at SMX they said they want to be more transparent. Now we have seen that in a couple examples. We have seen that with them announcing the Panda update that they've said is going to launch in a couple weeks. So watch out for that!
