In this video, Matt Cutt’s discusses the idea that just because Google gets a patent on something it does not mean that they are actually using that functionality in the algorithm. While that may be true, I think the most important thing we can take away from this video is that Matt Cutts is clearly frustrated with search engine optimization experts. Just look at his demeanor in this video, it is almost as though he doesn’t like his job anymore.
In all honest, I can’t say that I blame him. He has to answer questions all day on a topic that he is not actually allowed to provide the answers to. But it is almost Google’s own fault, the entire Internet marketing community is supposed to guess and check.
Watch this video by Matt Cutts as he debunks a common myth, but clearly shows signs of on the job fatigue.
