why is that conference related to seo does not create enough buzz in india.
I think mainly because indian seo's are not so interested in conferences. More over seo's in india are going through hard times.nobody in india knows exactly what seo is or what is the importance of seo is?
Not enough buzz? Hmm I dunno. More than a couple of participants so far.
Maybe some SEOs are just too hard-headed to be open for new ideas aired at a SEO (un)conference Or maybe it's just over their heads I dunno
Second reason, i think is that is that seo's in india don't think that conferences has anything to offer to them.
Ok I get that. I can imagine that the travelling thing is a bit of a problem. After all, India is huge.
But I also think that your "...don't think that conferences has anything to offer to them" and my "...too hard-headed to be open for new ideas..." are just two different ways to describe the same issue
