WebFest Global, the newly rebranded DomainFest, is coming to Santa Monica, California, in February 2013. It will have educational presentations ranging from SEO and mobile websites to affiliate marketing and new gTLDs.
In the domaining world, as for most industries, professional networks matter. So making contacts and building relationships at educational events is just as important as the technical learning. That is why WebFest will be hosting three parties: at a local promenade, under the wing of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, and at the Magic Castle nightclub. Three parties you do not want to miss.

Many people openly state that exact match domain names are worth more because they can get your website to the top of the search engine results. But this commonly espoused belief has rarely been backed up by real data…until today.
Seventeen-year-old wunderkind Mark Collier has not only secured a substantial amount of data from various sources, but he’s taught himself programming and statistics in order to analyze the data. And he can say without a doubt – statistically speaking, of course – that exact match domain names correlate with high-ranking websites within the search engine results.

To have a website that ranks highly in search engines like Google and Bing, just how important is the domain name? For the most reliable information on this topic, I invited the leading authority on search engines, Danny Sullivan, to join me on DomainSherpa.
Listen in as Sullivan discusses the often-debated relationship between domain names and search engine optimization, including:
* Do keywords within the domain name help search engine optimization?
* Are keywords within the domain name better than just having keywords elsewhere in the URL?
* Is buying a premium generic domain name a good investment for a new business?
And many more
