{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by cheryldraper Today marked day one of the first-ever MozCon Virtual! Even though we weren’t together in person, it was so exciting to get the best people in the industry together again. So much of the day was different from what we expected six months ago, but the one thing we can always count on from our speakers is a MASSIVE amount of value. We’re talking insights, game plans, cheat codes — you name it, we’ve got it — and this year was no different. Let’s get to it. Sarah Bird — Welcome & State of the Industry It’s always inspiring to hear from our fearless leader. Sarah hit on some of the changes that we’ve seen this year and how they’ve affected both us as people and us as an industry. Sarah also laid out her thoughts on major SEO trends for 2020.

In difficult times we must all come together. We’re all so happy to be able to create this virtual experience and allow for everyone to have something (somewhat) predictable to look forward to for two days. Andy Crestodina — Thought Leadership and SEO: The 3 Key Elements and Search Ranking Strategies Andy started off by walking us through the three key aspects of thought leadership: personal brand, taking a stand, and proving expert insights.

Behind the Scenes at MozCon Virtual

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by Dr-Pete Re-imagining MozCon hasn't been easy. I won't lie — I'll miss seeing so many of you in person, and, yes, I'll miss the magic of the big stage. We're working hard to make this year special, including leveling up our speakers for their remote sessions. I recently shared my own set-up on Twitter: This stirred up quite a bit of interest in our set-up and equipment list, so thanks to Cheryl on our events team for filling in the blanks for me, and thanks to our amazing A/V partners at Seamless Events for helping this all come together. Also, many thanks to our speakers who gave me permission to share their photos and let you in on some of the magic behind in front of the curtain.

That's a Wrap: MozCon Virtual 2020 Day Two Recap

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by cheryldraper Wow! What a crazy ride MozCon has been this year. In case you missed it, we were able to double the number of attendees and include over 2,800 people. Not only were we able to include them, we were also able to see their families, pets, and home offices. It was an unusual experience for sure, but one we won’t be forgetting any time soon. As always, the speakers served up some flaming hot content (including an actual movie). We can’t wait to share some of these takeaways with you! Britney Muller — Accessible Machine Learning Workflows for SEOs Britney started off by assuring everyone that they absolutely can use machine learning. She knows this because she was able to teach her dad how to use it! Let’s jump right in. Basically, machine learning can be used for a lot of things.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by cheryldraper This year's MozCon was unlike any other. In the midst of a global pandemic, we pivoted from planning our traditional 1,600-plus in-person shindig to an online conference that ended up bigger and more well-attended than anything we'd done before. MozCon Virtual was a delightful journey into the unknown. Just a few of the practical lessons we learned: How to collect, assemble, and ship high-quality at-home filming kits to our speakers How to reimagine online networking (they weren't held over delicious entrees at lunch, but our Birds of a Feather virtual sessions were a big hit!) How to get the most out of an online conference while also caring for your needs and being aware of Zoom fatigue And while it may have felt a little different this year, with 21 industry experts covering topics all the way from easy-to-implement machine learning to effective content promotion to crafting …
