Pubcon is still one of the best Conference and Expos to attend. There was plenty of content and speaker tracks to either focus your time or just get a broad spectrum of whats current in the internet marketing space.
This particular show had a couple of surprises: Starting with Matt Cutts new disavow tool ( basically for letting those that participated in back link shenanigans) for helping those recover from being in too many bad link neighborhoods. Also Ninjas buying webmaster world was not a real surprise. Jim Boykin seems to be in a bit of a buying mode these days. It seems like the industry is changing still with some of the Bigs buying the Smalls.
We got a lot from this show as usual and look forward to the 2013 show. Maybe there will be some new stuff now that Brett Tabke can devote more time to the Conference.
