Google Ranking Fair

So Danny Sullivan has only been at Google as an employee for a minute and already shared something I had no idea Google did, a Google Ranking Fair.

Danny described these Ranking Fairs in a series of posts on Twitter. He said he went to "Ranking Fair" yesterday at Google. He added it is "like science fair with search engineers in front of displays explaining future changes." He said there are "no code/secrets" shared but there are "engineers with displays talking about how something they did helps."

Matt Cutts added that these Ranking Fairs "were the best." "Truly cool to see what folks came up with," he added.

Danny Sullivan said he would like to bring some of these to the public, in his efforts to make Google more transparent.

Here are these tweets:

Google did publish a search quality meeting video once, which was pretty eye opening but nothing confidential was shared.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: I asked Danny for some clarification:
