On February 24 JST, we will host our first installment of our new event series called
Search Central Live.
This will be the first of a series of free events, bringing Google Search and our amazing community
together online. As with all online events, we had to consider which timezone to pick. For this
event, we chose a timezone to suit parts of the Asia-Pacific region, and the content will be
available on our YouTube channel afterwards. The
registration is open now for everyone and the event is free of charge.
Introducing Search Central Live
Since our move under the new Google Search Central
umbrella, we’ve been working on creating a new series of virtual events to explore different ways
to gather and interact online.
Central Live is an experiment to try out a livestream format rather than a pre-recorded set
of talks. We encourage you to join the event live on YouTube and interact with the speakers
through the chat in real time. We hope to create an interesting dialogue between the community and
the speakers this way.
We are also piloting how we can host community speakers as part of the event, in order to foster
the dialog between Google Search and the broader community of SEOs, developers, and website owners.
What to expect from Search Central Live?
This event is a pilot to see how we can use virtual live events to build an interactive experience
as well as foster a dialogue with the community as part of our virtual events. It will be a livestream
that you can access through the event
website. After the event, the content will be available on-demand on our YouTube channel in
English with captions. The event is free, the registration is open to everyone, and there is no
limit to the number of participants. The first event on February 24, 2021 JST is going to be centered
around Japan, and future events will accommodate other timezones.
This Search Central Live event will consist of three sessions:
- A fireside chat with Cherry Prommawin, Danny Sullivan,
Ashley Berman Hale,
and Martin Splitt
- A live technical SEO case study with Kristina
Azarenko and Martin Splitt
- A live session of Search Off The Record with Gary Illyes, John Mueller, and
We’re excited to see you all at the event, and look forward to the chat and the
sessions! Let us know your thoughts, questions, and excitement on our Twitter profile.
