SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Thunder SEO, an online marketing agency in San Diego, California, announces their Founder and President, Max Thomas, has been selected to speak at the Search Marketing Expo SMX West 2012 conference.

Other speakers in the panel will include: Senior SEO Manager of Become, Inc, Micah Fisher-Kirshner, Senior Research Analyst of Conductor, Nathan Safran, and CEO of aimClear, Marty Weintraub. They will discuss the change in Google Analytics, which no longer provides the keywords and search terms used by visitors who are signed into their Google accounts (which includes YouTube and Google+), as well as implications on search reporting and alternative approaches.

"Businesses of all sizes are seeing that [not provided] message show up in their Google Analytics reports, and it's become a real challenge for executing successful SEO campaigns," explains Matt McGee, coordinator of the session and Executive News Editor of Marketing Land and Search Engine Land. "Max and our other SMX West speakers are going to share new tactics for understanding what [not provided] means and how to make up for the missing analytics data."

"With the change of [not provided] Google really threw a wrench in full transparency of visitor traffic to a website," explains Thomas. "Even so, there are ways to work-around the situation as well as evaluate site traffic data from new perspectives. I'm honored to be a part of this panel and am very excited to share and learn with my amazing co-speakers."
