I was only able to attend the last half of this session (having decided to use my ninja stealth abilities to sneak out of “Optimizing your Site for Higher Conversion Rates”). After my ninja vanish maneuver I found myself strolling the halls of the conference looking for a good session to crash. I peeked in Salon A and saw Stoney so I decided to join him. We sat in the very back and listened to representatives from Yahoo! and Google discuss various duplicate content filters and identification strategies. When Q&A time came, Stoney said that he had a question and after 5 minutes or so of being ignored (we were in the back row), our fearless leader marched up to the front of the room to ask a question that will forever live in PPM infamy. I’m not going to repeat the details as they have been covered by the man himself (Read how Stoney Silences the Search Giants) , but I did want to share a picture that I took of his “march into the coliseum”.
