  • They will teach you everything, but not SEO! LOL! Guys learn SEO! Learn On-Page and Off-Page especially Keyword Research which counts for 80% SEO. If you learn SEO very well, you will never die of hunger. In SEO, you have 2 options:

    1. Find low competition keywords that are being searched a lot on Google – 300 billion searches monthly are done on Google, among them 20-30% are those which users don’t find satisfied answers, you find those keywords via SEO, , and write SEO optimized articles on that, your site will rank for sure without making quality backlinks.

    2. Take any keyword, and rank with high quality backlinks – Event Blogging works on this option – the same strategy used by Tanveer.

    HIRE ME! :D

  • I have students who are interested in attending this session, Any idea who do I need to contact in order to make it happen.

    Let me know about it.

      • Will it let me bring people who are interested students from other universities. Like FC college. If I want our university students to attend the session – let’s say in UET or UCP?
        Let me know about it .

        • There isn’t any detail regarding students from other universities. However, you can select “Other” in the registration form so it depends if the university in question will allow those students to come in.

          I have reached out to Google for confirmation regarding this and will update the article when they respond.

          • Secondly I won’t be able to register myself as I’m part of the staff there and it is not giving any option for it apart from being a student

            Do you have any alternate means to register for the event for someone who is not a student?

            • It depends on the universities arranging the event. The first event is today at IBA and they have reserved a limited number of seats for the outsiders while only undergraduate students at IBA are allowed to attend it.

    • Well I’m not saying anything bad about COMSATS but do you really believe that its leading IT university?

      • Well, give it a try. Try knowing the faculty and facilities provided to IT students in COMSATS sometime.
        Random conclusions do not work everytime.

  • Aoa , i want to know that only these universities students can apply.. ?? Because the name of my university is not given in the list…

  • what will be next procedure after registration…?
    And what will be the timing….?
    how we will be informed?

  • Instead of GIKI (in KPK) they should select UET Peshawar/Peshawar University or IMSciences where all major instatites can participate. So now they have to goto Swabi. Amazing.

  • Can Someone who is a graduate now not a university student but he is a developer can he attend this events in other universities..?

  • AOA ! Can u plz come in International Islamic University,Islamabad?? we round about 200 students have registered into it but didn’t got any response. So kindly tell us if u can come. We’ll arrange it as a CO-seminar in our Old Campus,Faisal Mosque,Islamabad. Inshallah we’ll be more than 500 and really interested in this.
    Plz must reply me on my email.
    Waiting for response.
