matt cutts loves webmasters picGoogle's Matt Cutts released a video yesterday answering the question; does Google have algorithms for different positions in the search results.

So does position one through three use one ranking algorithm, position four through six use another and so on.

The answer is no, at least with the web organic search results. Of course the ads have different algorithms, the local results have different algorithms, the videos and so on - but the web results do not work that way.

Here is the video:

If you look at the Youtube comments of this video you can see that most of them are SEO snake oil salesman, SEO newbie's or Matt pleasers. Kind of summaries, who's Matt's audience are left out to be. What an epic fall for Matt in the last 4 years. People who are in the industry long enough don't even bother to watch his pointless and deceiving videos.

Your sweeping statement covers virtually everyone in the SEO industry except for people who don't like MC. So basically all you actually said is that people who don't like MC, tend to comment on his videos less. You just said it in the nastiest way possible and grouped people by derogatory terms. MC's audience are people who want to learn more about how Google operates, that simple.
