What does Greg think about State of Search?

I kind of feel like State of Search is my baby. Back in the early days, I ran the conference – years 2 and 3 were completely handled by me. It’s been amazing to see it grow into the killer conference that it is today. I love the fact that there’s a focus on Local SEO, with multiple sessions… and I love that so many awesome speakers get to come to my hometown and I get to see everyone that I’m friends with one last time before the end of the year. More than anything, I’m looking forward to seeing some of the speakers I haven’t seen in a while.
