Virtual Webmaster Unconference 2020

We are excited to present the first ever Google Virtual Webmaster Unconference, taking place on August 26th, at 8AM PDT.

While the in-person Webmaster Conference events are still on hold, we continue to share insights and information with you in the Webmaster Conference Lightning Talks series on our YouTube channel. But we understand that you might be missing the connection during live events, so we’d like to invite you to join this new event format.

What is different with this event?

In this event, you decide what sessions will happen and will actively shape the content in them, by taking part in discussions, feedback sessions, and similar formats that need your input. It's your chance to collaborate with other webmasters, SEOs, developers, digital marketers, publishers and Google product teams, such as Search Console and Google Search, and help us deliver more value to you and the community.

How does it work?

Register by August 19th and select two sessions from the list of proposed sessions you would like to participate in. Only the sessions that receive the most votes will be scheduled to take place on the event day, so make sure you pick your favorite ones before August 19th!

As we have limited spots, we might have to select attendees based on background and demographics to get a good mix of perspectives in the event.

What happens after I register?

We will let you know your registration status by August 20th. If your registration is confirmed, you will receive an invitation to the Google Meet call on August 26th with all the other participants, the MC and the session leads. You can expect to actively participate in the sessions you're interested in via voice and/or video call through Google Meet. Please note that the sessions will not be recorded; we will publish a blog post with some of the top learnings after the event.

Please remember to understand and acknowledge our Community Guidelines before the event day. We strive to create a respectful and inclusive environment in which all attendees feel safe to participate. Failure to comply with these Community Guidelines will result in immediate event participation suspension.

We have very interesting proposals lined up for you to vote on, as well as other fun surprises. Make sure you save your spot before August 19th and join the first ever Virtual Webmaster Unconference!
