Oct 2, 2006 - 9:21 am 2 by

On the heels of the announcement by Barry that Google's Matt Cutts would be joining us on's The Pulse, we wanted to let you know about an interview that Matt had given to John Battelle that was published last week at John's Search Blog. John is one of the undisputed early leaders of the Search Engine Optimization industry, and his book "The Search" is often cited at industry conferences and within forums and blogs as being a must-read for SEO.

In the interview, Matt clarifies his official role at Google, and discusses "Google Pray," manual web spam removal teams at Google, and the news that W3C schools is selling links on high PageRank pages.

A short thread introducing the interview was posted last week at DigitalPoint Forums.
