Matt Cutts Talks About Web SPAM

It would be in everyone's best interest to see and hear what Google likes and this is coming straight from Matt Cutts who is the head SEO Guru working for Google.

I posted some bullet points for those who dont want to watch which I suggest you do

-Matt Cutts prefers Wordpress because it takes care of 80 to 90% of Search Engine Optimization

-He likes Akismet, Cookies For Comments, Feedburner, Wordpress Super CACHE and Enforce WWW Plug-Ins

-Google crawls roughly for Pagerank. He gives an example on how Google gives Pagerank to websites. If one website has 10 links coming from Authority sites: Newyork Times, LA Times, Readers Digest etc and another website has 20 links coming from Non-Authority websites Google will give a higher Pagerank to the website that has the 10 Authority links.

-Touches on Backlinks: How does Google rank pages? You want to be relevant (stuff thats on your page, the mechanics of how you write) and reputable (what people say or know about you).


Overall he mentioned somethings that I didnt know and some I did. If I could spend a day with that guy, get him drunk and really spill the Google secrets I'll be a Millionaire lol

I agree Sean talk about coming straight from the Horses mouth. You cant go wrong there. Did you see the part in the video where he showed the example of the default Wordpress Theme and how many times he sees them and people never change them which he doesnt like.
