Just a few weeks ago, Matt Cutts talked about blog optimization at WordCamp 2007. While his talk was tailored to the Wordpress blog user, a lot can be taken from it for basic website optimization. In a recent blog post, Matt shares the links of the people who liveblogged and videoblogged the events, including:
- PowerPoint slides
- A video presentation
- The talk, transcribed
- A summary from The Lisa
- Another writeup
- Stephan Spencer's CNET writeup
To follow up with the confusion relating to underscores versus dashes in URLs, Matt clarifies that Google is still working on treating both as the same, but right now, a brand new siteowner would be best off creating URLs with dashes.
