SEO Tips From Google In India

Jul 10, 2012 • 8:34 am | comments (9) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

Just about six months ago, Matt Cutts and several of his team members spent a week or so in India to work with the search quality teams in the Hyderabad, India Google office. You can see Matt mention it on Google+ back in January 2012.

During his time there, he did a Google+ Hangout with several Googlers and accepted questions via chat, Twitter and Google+. About 6 months later, Google posted the video on YouTube for all to see.

Honestly, the video is a bit out of date, so things he mentions as being announced soon or in the past is a bit outdated. There are tons of useful nuggets for new SEOs but those who follow the SEO space daily, maybe you'll get one or two points from it.

The most fascinating thing to me is that he had about 10 Googlers on the hangout and Matt spoke probably 95% of the time, while Wysz spoke the rest. I am not sure why the other Googlers were on the hangout.

If SEOs in India knew Matt was in Hyderabad, they would have lynched him. Serious!

his visiting pattern becomes much like Obama's visits to Afghanistan and Iraq - sudden and unannounced.
