Google's Webmaster Central and its attached Webmaster Help Forum have been helping and guiding the world's online business and website owners since 2005. During that time our members have successfully diagnosed and solved ranking and performance problems for hundreds of thousands of commercial and personal websites.
These days Webmaster Central is widely regarded as the #1 online support resource for the world's online companies. Each month the help forum alone deals with thousands of problems across the entire spectrum of SEO and Technical problems.
Now, in 2016, we're taking our business support on the road.
As part of Google's Top Contributor Program we are arranging a series of presentations aimed at introducing small and medium businessess to Google's collection of free products and services to help them succeed online. These sessions' goal is to enable business owners to run their online presence more efficiently and thus increase their chances of commercial success.
Covering topics from setting up and administering a company website to dealing with Google's Local Business system and the search engine's Quality Guidelines, these sessions will be presented by myself and other Webmaster Central Top Contributors. They will also be attended by Google employees, via video-conference uplink.
Presentations will run in two 30 minute sessions, followed by 30 - 45 minutes of Questions & Answers. They will also be accompanied by online help resources, such as documentation, how-to articles, and instruction videos.
Session content is tailored to individual audiences, and comes in two Levels: Beginner to Intermediate, and Intermediate to Advanced.
- Beginner to Intermediate
An introduction to the concepts of online business, including setting up a website and working with Google's products and services to get your business online. Our session then continues to show you how to put your various online resources to work properly.
- Intermediate to Advanced
Your company's online presence is established and mostly under control, but you know that your online business could run more efficiently. You'd like some advice on how to optimize things to insure the maximum chance of success for your venture.
These informational presentations are aimed at organizations such as Chambers of Commerce, Business Networks, Rotary Clubs, etc. Sessions are conducted free of charge, though minimum audience numbers and lead-times do apply, and geographic restrictions are in place for onsite presentations. Video uplink presentations can be arranged for English-language audiences anywhere, time-zones permitting.
