As many of you know, I am fascinated with the SEO community and how it reacts to changes that Google makes. So I had the opportunity to to interview Pedro Dias, a Managing Partner at APIS3 (a Brazilian based digital marketing agency) and former Googler within the Search Quality/Webspam team.
Pedro has not worked at Google since around the times of Panda, in 2011, but he is still incredibly vocal within the SEO industry and he has a lot of smart things to share.
I asked Pedro lots of questions around the SEO community, how Google may perceive the community and how the community may perceive Google. The dynamics between webmasters and Google is an interesting one, so this interview was mostly about that.
Here is a YouTube embed of the hour long interview:
