(Last Updated On: September 20, 2019)

I recently attended the Webmaster conference organized by Google held at Chandigarh, India on 19th June 2019. I came to know about such a conference organized by search engine giant Google from one of the joined Facebook group.

The idea behind publishing this post is to make some awareness of the social interactions from this kind of seminars & conferences for latest update and networking purpose.

And I hopefully mention all my personal experiences and the reason behind attending this conference.

Below is the excerpt of the questionnaire which Google suppose to ask from the prospective webmaster attendees.

As all the rights to attend the conference is held by Google. And the invitation for attending this mega event is only through personal call invitation through email.

I don’t know the selection process but luckily I am shortlisted for the event and informed through the official email sent by The Webmaster Conference team.

Now the event day comes when we have to reach the given venue. I reached the venue which is a 5-star hotel before the reporting time.

There firstly we have to register ourselves. The person from their team gave us a nice carry bag made up of ‘Jute’ with all necessary goodies – Notebook, badge and a customized Google pen in it.

After the registration process, we headed over to the separate hall where the morning breakfast refreshments are going on.

  1. Syed Malik Mairaj (Search Outreach Team – Google Asia Head)
  2. Pratyusha Simharaju (Search Outreach Strategist – Google Webmaster Console)
  3. Arjun Narang (Senior Strategist – Trust & Safety)
  4. Akesh Khandelwal (Publisher Quality – Google AdSense Team)

After a couple of sessions related to content creation, search console, web security & Google Adsense. There the time comes for a group photoshoot.

In meanwhile there they announced the lunch for the attendees. The glimpse of which I have attached below for your representation.

What I Learned From This Event

After attending this event I come to know the following things:

(a) Networking – First and the foremost benefit of attending these kinds of seminars are to make more and more links/connections & try to make network with the enthusiasts who are actually masters of their fieldwork.

(b) What’s happening in the search space – As these sort of conferences especially organized by renowned companies like Google is after proper research analysis by their teams and to create new trends among the online audience. So, as an individual, you can gain as much as you can.

(c) Morale Boosting – These events help one and all, in particular, motivates me a lot to boost your efforts and learn from the past mistakes & make this online space more valuable asset for the one who is looking something amazing on the web rather than just focusing on our own selfish wants.
