Wondering about any SEO misinformation YOU’VE heard lately?

matt cutts google seo guru What are some examples of SEO misinformation?Today’s question for Matt Cutts of Google:  ”Name 5 examples of SEO misinformation from the past year given by reputable persons that made you want to bang your head against the wall. (You don’t need to name names.)”

from Tom S., Seattle, WA (Russian subtitles translated by Mike Shakin.)

In the video, Matt says (and I’m paraphrasing):  ”No need to name names icon smile What are some examples of SEO misinformation? Biggest one is that if you do/say negative things to your customers online (write comments), that those links to ‘bad press’ will give you link juice back to your site.” So no, this does not count as link backs at all.

“Only links matter!” – Matt says no, links are only one tiny part of the overall picture.

“Keywords Meta Tag still counts for Google!” – Matt says no, meta tag DOES NOT COUNT. Other search engines may still look at this info, but Google doesn’t.

Watch the video to hear all the rest of the great SEO misinformation Matt comments on.
