SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - BrightEdge, the world's first enterprise class SEO platform that helps brands rise above the increasing clutter on the Web, today announced that CEO Jim Yu will participate in a panel discussion on "Facebook, Twitter & SEO" at Search Marketing Expo (SMX) East in New York City on Wednesday, September 14.

Mr. Yu brings years of in-depth experience on best practices for search engine optimization (SEO) techniques. Panel attendees will learn about the integration of social graphs and signals into search and marketing and how these trends are changing enterprise SEO strategies. Danny Sullivan, editor-in-chief of Search Engine Land will moderate the discussion.

BrightEdge was the first SEO platform to integrate social media signals into its analytics engine, giving marketers valuable insights that allow them to optimize their social media activity to increase return on investment (ROI) for SEO.

Panel Session; "Facebook, Twitter & SEO"

It's no longer theoretical. Both Google and Bing say that they factor social signals into their ranking algorithms for "regular" search results. Who you are socially, your authority, the authority of those who talk about you (or your company) all play a role. This session looks at how social signals from Twitter and Facebook are currently being used with search.
