Matt Cutts
Matt Cutts of Google has posted some videos of himself answering reader mail on different topics related to SEO:

  • Session 1: Including qualities of a good site.
  • Session 2: Including some SEO Myths.
  • Session 3: Should you Optimize for Search Engines or for Users?

Seeing someone explain a thing is a much different experience than reading about it, especially for people just learning about search engine optimization.

A little over a week ago, Matt made a post about what direction to take his blog. There were a huge number of responses and I tossed one in:

“Since Rocketboom has taken a different direction maybe you could fill the void and start RocketGoogle? That way the cuttlets could get a dose of you in living color.”

“Actually, I think it would be interesting if you would post some screencasts in addition to, or instead of screen shots when you out spammy sites or explain some aspect of super duper power SEO.”

I’m sure there’ some blog etiquette rule I’m breaking my quoting own comment made on another blog, but who cares? I’m sure Matt had video in mind long before I made my silly suggestion, but it’s fun to see things work out this way. I hope he continues to do video posts because it’s effective.

    Good idea. If I move beyond the ultra-lo-fi stuff that I’m doing now, I’d love to be able to switch to video from a desktop computer. Hmmm. I wonder how much stuff like that costs?

  2. Thanks for stopping by Matt. You wouldn’t have to pay for that stuff yourself would you? If the Google PR dept appreciates you as much as they should, there should be a whole videoblogging setup waiting for you in the am. 🙂

  3. Avatar Matt Cutts says

    Yeah, but then I couldn’t say whatever I want. 🙂

  4. Ah, I see. A little more like zeFrank?


  1. […] Maybe “RocketGoogle” isn’t such a great name. Since these are really the opinions of Matt Cutts and not Google per se, then maybe RocketMatt? Or MattBoom?
