In an unprecedented move, Google is sending a team of engineers to support WebmasterWorld’s World Search Conference, being held in June 21-24, 2005. Conference delegates can get involved in roundtable sessions with the Google engineers on specific subjects of interest. In addition, the event will feature an invitation-only cocktail party where conference delegates can meet the engineers on specific subjects of interest and relevance.
In keeping with its focus on bringing you the fastest and easiest way to find relevant information, Google is pleased to invite you to an interactive session with the people that make it all happen – Google Engineers. We are excited to be providing a forum for you to ask the most intriguing questions and for you to get equally, if not more, intriguing answers. We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to come face to face with the people that make ideas and innovation come to life. As we go to work on themes and thoughts spanning "greater ROI", "less hassle", "more control" and "more inventory", we look forward to hearing from you about the same.
Join us for cocktails at the Park Plaza Hotel for some engaging conversations, deep discussions and a meeting of the minds. Please take a minute to fill out this registration form and we hope to meet you in person very soon.
Reception held in the Toulan Ballroom, Wednesday June 22, 6:00-8:00pm

Google will have approximatly 10 search engineers at the reception to answer questions. Also, Matt Cutts of Google will be onhand at Thursdays super session Search Engines and Webmasters (aka: Search Engine Smack Down ;-) ) along with Tim Mayer (Yahoo!), Rahul Lahiri (Ask Jeeves), and Eytan Seidman (MSN Search).
I would love to meet some of them. But would they like to meet me?
Yes, they would love to meet you! Imagine the good press for Google when all their fans show up!
Everybody, please be there! Register with Google for that meeting, register with webmasterworld for the main conference, and book your hotel room early!
I'm going the main conference too, link above, the Tuesday-Friday thing, in the same hotel. I've already booked my room.
Obviously, re-request inclusion, 302 redirecting, duplicate penalties, and page jacking, subjects that Google is very ambiguous about and make little comment on these forums are not relevant to you.
You can bet your Bourbon _I'm_ going to be asking about 302s and canonical confusion!
I'm respectful of the fact that the Google folks may not be free to answer/address specific items but this is a great opportunity for all to be frank and open about why results and many legitimate sites are suffering so much from the attempts to fix those problems.
If WebmasterWorld discussions are any indication of the importance of these issues to the broader web community I think Google should be very interested.
Ha - I can just visualise GoogleGuy severing Sergey Brins arm with a lightsabre, then webmasterworld Preferred Member Palpatine, shorts one of the google radios, and hurls poor old Serge out of one of the Googleplex windows in a blaze of electricity.
GoogleGuy bows head - "What have I done!?"
Preferred Member Palpatine - "You did well young one - I will name you Spam Vader - Now follow me to the imperial content cranker with the big yellow button."
