SEJ eSummit: Who Is Speaking & All the Latest Info You Need to Know

SEJ eSummit: Who Is Speaking & All the Latest Info You Need to Know

I may be biased.

OK, I totally am.

But Search Engine Journal’s upcoming eSummit is shaping up to be awesome.

In case you missed it, SEJ eSummit 2020 is an all-day, free virtual conference taking place Tuesday, June 2.

Sessions will cover all things SEO, PPC, social media, and content marketing.

It will feature the industry’s best speakers delivering the top-rated content you’ve come to expect from us.

And prepare yourself – this will be advanced content.

Since we announced the virtual conference last month, we’ve been busy confirming speakers, working on the agenda, and choosing a platform that will provide the best possible experience for you possible, short of having a physical, in-person event.

3 Amazing Keynotes

Your day will kick off with a technical-focused keynote from Martin Splitt, Developer Advocate, Google.

You may have seen Splitt’s JavaScript SEO series on YouTube. Or you may have seen him in Ask Google Webmasters.


If so, you know you’re in for a high-quality keynote.

When we say our eSummit is advanced, we aren’t kidding. We’re diving straight into the deep end of SEO!

So if you’re newer to SEO, make sure to brush up on the SEO basics and beyond over the coming weeks by digging into SEO articles here on Search Engine Journal.

In the afternoon, you’ll see a keynote from Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer, MarketingProfs.

She will provide a much-needed adrenaline shot of inspiration.

Handley did an amazing keynote at one of our in-person events a couple years back.

Attendees loved it.

We’re so thrilled to have Handley back for our eSummit. Another keynote you can’t miss if you’re serious about creating outstanding content today and in the future.

Then, in our “main event” keynote, Bill Hunt, President, Back Azimuth, will be closing out the day.

Breaking news – this will be Hunt’s final SEO presentation – ever!


We’re so thrilled that Bill has agreed to do his last presentation exclusively for Search Engine Journal’s eSummit.

Bill’s presentations are always “must-see” because he never holds back and brings it every time for attendees.

His last presentation will be no exception.

SEJ eSummit June 2020 Speakers

15 Fantastic Industry Speakers

Marketing all-stars, assemble!

Yes, we’ve assembled a group of absolutely brilliant speakers from around the globe.

If you read Search Engine Journal regularly, or you’ve attended a conference in the last couple of years, you probably will recognize many of these names.

Check out our full, up-to-date list of all the confirmed speakers for SEJ’s eSummit:

  • Jamie Alberico, Technical SEO Consultant, Not a Robot
  • Jay Baer, Founder, Convince & Convert
  • Hamlet Batista, CEO, RankSense
  • Alan Bleiweiss, Alan Bleiweiss Consulting
  • Mary Davies, President, Beanstalk Internet Marketing
  • Gianluca Fiorelli, SEO & Digital Marketing Consultant,
  • Jori Ford, Chief Marketing Officer, FoodBoss
  • Bartosz Góralewicz, CEO, Onely
  • Lily Ray, SEO Director, Path Interactive
  • Aleyda Solis, International SEO Consultant & Founder of Orainti

  • Susan Wenograd, CMO, Aimclear & Paid Media Reporter, Search Engine Journal

Sessions will be moderated by either Loren Baker, Founder, Search Engine Journal; Brent Csutoras, Partner & Owner, Search Engine Journal; or myself.

That’s a stellar lineup.

Again, I’m totally biased.

But I’m not wrong.

I’ve seen a presentation from nearly everyone on that list before – and I was never disappointed.

You won’t be either.

1-on-1 Networking!

At SEJ’s eSummit, you will be able to chat and collaborate with fellow attendees, speakers, sponsors, and more – all from the comfort of your home (or office, if stay-at-home orders are lifted by that time).

Our platform, Hopin, also has cool networking features.

You’ll be matched with industry peers who have similar professional interests as you.

After a set amount of time chatting 1 on 1 via video, you’ll have the choice to connect with that person to follow-up with after the conference. Or, you can simply move onto someone new to network with.

It’s sort of like speed dating – hopefully without too many awkward moments.


It’s a great opportunity to develop and grow your network with people you would otherwise never meet.

Plus, you can visit our Virtual Expo Hall.

Check out virtual booths, where you can learn about helpful products and services from sponsors and get special offers.
