  3. Can the three SEO sessions on Saturday be rescheduled so that they take place consecutively? Thanks.

    • Kurt Eng says:

      We didn’t want the schedule this way as the intermediate and developer SEO will be increasingly more advanced than the beginner. Never to fear! All sessions will be recorded!

  4. Kurt – Good to know about the recordings, but I’m confused by your answer. I asked if the Saturday SEO sessions, from beginner to more advanced, could be offered consecutively, i.e., one after another, instead of all at the same time. Thanks.

  5. Vicki Mills says:

    I just saw the schedule and the three SEO sessions all at the same time. Ack! I know it’s last minute, but I want to echo Marcia’s request that these be given at different times if at all possible. WordPress SEO is a particular reason for my attending, and I was so disappointed to see these sessions run concurrently.

    • Kurt Eng says:

      Hi Vicki,

      We did this on purpose for logistic reasons. All sessions are recorded and we will have a Happiness Bar for you to ask questions as well.

  6. When will the recordings be available? Do you have any from last WordCamp so we can see if they are of good quality? Thank you.
