Webmaster Trends Analyst, Google
Mariya is a Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google, currently based in Zürich. Previously, she was part of the Search Quality and webspam teams, so she's seen it all when it comes to websites,the good, the bad and the ugly. Her mission is to help webmasters understand how search engines work with their sites, and help Google engineers understand what webmasters need. She does this on the Google Webmaster Central blog, in webmaster office hours hangouts on air, in the Google+ webmaster communities, and on the webmaster forums in English, Russian, Bulgarian, and occasionally Japanese. When she's not helping fix websites, she fixes bikes.
