Download it, tell us a little bit about your hypothesis, procedures/methodology, and results, and then send it off to There are no crazy forms, no entry fee, and you can decide how much or how little to share with us. Just keep it under 10,000 words!

There’s also a bonus for the early birds who want to get a head-start on their submission. Anyone who emails by Tuesday, September 4th to declare their intent to submit research will receive the opportunity to ask the judging panel three questions.

Industry recognition and free publicity

Each of the three finalists will be invited to present a summary of their research at TechSEO Boost on November 29th 2018 in Boston. With hundreds of in-person attendees and thousands more watching via the livestream and recorded sessions, this is your chance to showcase your smarts to a wide audience of marketers, agencies, and other SEO thought-leaders. You could walk-away with a new client, an exciting job opportunity, or a valuable connection in the SEO community.

Can’t travel to Boston for the event? Not to fear! Finalists who cannot travel to Boston to present in-person will have the opportunity to pre-record their presentation. We’ll air it at the live event, so you still get the industry exposure without making the trip to Beantown. Feeling a little camera shy? You can also elect to have someone present on your behalf.

Shape the future of SEO

Testing and experimentation is key to the advancement of all businesses and industries, including the SEO industry. Finalists who share their findings at the event have the opportunity to improve the industry at large. Join the ranks of SEO pioneers who are positively impacting the future of the SEO for everyone.
