WordPress Through the Eyes of Google

Apparently WordPress automatically takes care of ~90% of the mechanics of SEO. The video below, from San Francisco WordCamp ’09, is pretty long (46 minutes) but more interesting than an episode of CSI. Recommended viewing if you care about SEO on WordPress, fantastic stuff.

“Matt Cutts from the Web Spam team at Google showcases the good and the bad of WordPress as seen through the eyes of Google, including basics on how Google search works and how you can boost your blog’s results in Google searches” (via wordpress.tv).

  1. This is great. Getting advice from the horses mouth. To some extent I have the BO that he talks about 🙂

    Flash drive example is also good to make proper posts.

    I will be making a change to my home page after watching this video. It is something obvious and I dont have it for my niche.

    Thanks for the video. I could go on and on about all I learned from it. But in short it is very valuable to me.

    I will actually make a post about this on my blog and link to it.
