News and Editorial SEO Summit
We've co-founded an annual online event dedicated entirely to SEO for news publishers. The News and Editorial SEO Summit has been going since 2021.
Visibility in Google’s ecosystem is a crucial source of readers for all online publishers, and information about how to maximize this can be hard to find. So, we decided to bring together the smartest minds in publishing and SEO and ask them to share their insights and expertise.
Founded by Barry Adams of Polemic Digital and John Shehata of NewzDash and GDdash, the inaugural NESS 2021 featured speakers from The Atlantic, The New York Times, Google, Mediahuis, The Globe and Mail, Mashable, and Amsive.
The event's first edition saw over 500 attendees from more than 50 countries attend the online sessions. The subsequent editions have maintained the size and scope of this global audience.
The 2022 edition featured speakers from The Athletic, Google, The Motley Fool, Shopify, Condé Nast, The Guardian, and more. Our keynote speaker was Joost de Valk, founder of Yoast and one of the most experienced people in SEO.
In 2023, we had another superb lineup of expert speakers from SEO and publishing, sharing their insights and experiences with the attendees: Jes Scholz, Glenn Gabe, Lily Ray, Claudio E. Cabrera, Anna Sbuttoni, Richard Nazarewicz, and our founders Barry Adams and John Shehata, with a keynote from SEO legend Wil Reynolds.
We’ve already set the dates for the 2024 edition: Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th October 2024. You can buy your ticket for the 2024 edition on the NewsSEO.io website.
