    WebmasterRadio.FM @ SES Chicago

    WebmasterRadio.FM is the official radio/podcast network of the Search Engine Strategies series of conferences. Being the official network gives us lots of access to lots of neat things and also lets us do a lot of neat things. We're going to take full advantage of our ability to see, access and do neat things at SES Chicago. This is the third year WebmasterRadio.FM has carried full-scale coverage from the SES conference series. We've gotten a good idea of what content our audience wants us to create and how to best go about making it happen. We've also gotten a good idea of ways we want to expand the reach of our coverage and open opportunities for others in the search marketing media. At Search Engine Strategies Chicago, we're going try an experiment in expanding the reach of our conference coverage. We’re opening our audio streams and our interview access to a sizable group of bloggers. WebmasterRadio.FM Livecasts from SES Chicago 2008 WebmasterRadio.FM will be creating about thirty hours of live and recorded coverage at SES Chicago. We will be carrying each of the three morning keynote speeches live starting at 9AM Monday through Wednesday. We will also be carrying live coverage of the two Orion Panels and some of the sessions. Each of these live sessions will be available in our Search Engine Strategies archives as downloadable podcasts shortly after they air. Much of the live coverage will come from the trade show floor in booth (#505) where we have dozens of interviews scheduled with keynote speakers, panelists, moderators and conference organizers. During these special-access interviews, we will be inviting industry bloggers to join us a the booth where we will open the floor to questions and ask bloggers who specialize in the speaker's field to sit in on the interviews.
