Several months ago we were devistated when we heard that a good friend an well respected SEO in the UK had passed away after a tragic accident. Since the moment that the news about Jaamit Durrani’s death broke something happened which I have never seen before. The community started to move and delivered a tribute on Social Media which know no equal.
At the upcoming SES London this week the community will again be tributing this very special person who even after his death knows to touch people and get them moving.
Every SES is these days knows a Black Hat / White Hat Unconference event in which experts debate what is right or wrong. This year the Black Hat / White Hat Unconference will be held in honour of Jaamit.
The event has been changed to ‘Share It Like Jaamit’ – where everybody is invited to share their hottest search marketing tips at the open mic (direct to camera), in return for tickets for free drinks. The video footage we generate will be made available as part of a link building competition sponsored by SEMPO, to prove who is the savviest, silliest and sneakiest search marketer out there. This will continue on conferences even after SES.
A truly remarkable man will that way be present at the event after all.Posted in News, Search Engine Strategies | Tags: Jaamit Durrani, SES London, SES London 2011
