5 Key Search Engine Must-knows, straight from the horse's mouth

  
  
  
search engine found

Finding your business website in search needn't be like finding a needle in a haystack.

Rather than listening to "expert" interpretations around search engine optimization and search engine marketing, let's take a few moments to learn right from the #1 SEO expert himself – Matt Cutts of Google – on some of the top influences behind getting found online.

I've selected 5 videos from the dozens (hundreds?) that Matt has recorded and posted on YouTube.


1. "Hi Matt, could you please explain how Google's ranking and website evaluation process works starting with the crawling and analysis of a site, crawling timelines, frequencies, priorities, indexing and filtering processes within the databases etc. – RobertvH, Munich"


2. "Hello Matt, a recent article of Danny Sullivan suggests that Google uses Twitter and Facebook links as a ranking signal. Can you confirm this? Can you elaborate a little bit more on this? – WebSEOAnalytics"


3. "Google has expressed in the past that frequently updated pages get a boost in rankings (QDF), that seems to favor blogs and news sites over company sites, which have less reason to be updated often. How important of a signal is 'freshness'? – Ivan, Canada"


4. "As Google's algo evolves, is it better to have exceptional links and mediocre content, or exceptional content and mediocre links? By links I mean inbound link quantity/quality. Can new sites with awesome contest outrank mediocre/established sites? – Jeff, NYC" 


5. "Do you recommend article marketing as an SEO strategy and how are the backlinks treated when other websites republish the same article? Jeff, Orange County, CA
