Google4 Grown Ups and the Widget Web Expo discount giveaways

Widgets are nifty little things aren’t they?

They give you quick access to the web info that’s most important to you. They let you leverage and personalise your content so that you can cut out all that surplus web guff you don’t need.

Your functionality can be customised and streamlined, and your content distributed. Yep they’re pretty nifty things all right. They’re so good in fact that they’re doing the homepage out of a job!

What better time then to get yourself along to the Widget Web Expo on October 6th? Chinwag readers can also get themselves 25% off the delegate ticket price. All you have to do is quote Chin08 when registering.

Snipperoo founder and widget blogger Ivan Pope will be chairing the event and delving into the world of widgets. Jonathan Allen, from Incisive Media will be speaking along with ACCESS’s Larry Berkin, Andre Bonvanie from NewsGator Europe, plus speakers from Bauer Consumer Media, Motorola, Nooked, KickApps, Zemanta, NixonNcInnes and a whole host of other widget greats.

Widget Web Expo will be looking at key widget trends, discussing their potential, the role widgets are playing in cross platform strategies and the challenges faced in tracking them once they’ve left the home page and launched into cyber space.

Whether you’re a complete novice, a widget aficionado or if you just like them, Widget Web Expo is where to go to get the tricks and tips on what’s going down, widget-wise.

SEO wisdom...

On top of all this, there’s Google 4 Grown-Ups on October 10th. The unique one day SEO training seminar will cover the pitfalls of optimisation as well as the techniques that you’ll need to get the most out of the big search engines.

Those nice folk at Google 4 Grown Ups are giving away a load of discounts to Chinwag subscribers – you’ll only have to pay £150 rather than the full ticket price of £300.
