Do you think that “Search Engine Optimization” should be renamed?

Hi Matt, do you think that search engine optimization is descriptive in the way it is used today? Do you think we need to call it something else? Mads, Copenhagen Have a question?

  1. My family laughed when I told them I would get extra cash with Certor Cash Code, but then I showed them the results. Google Certor Cash Code to see their reaction. (It was epic!)

  2. It would be a shame if you did not make cash faster when these normal people make more cash fast so easily using Smarter Money Maker (Look it up on google).

  3. I uploaded a sneak peek from my new training, that will guide you through the process of creating full featured and profitable websites in a few hours. watch this video: ===> /watch?v=MXwltmo9G8w <== or visit my channel

  4. @shantallediv yep.. ofcourse a lot of fraud sites and programs are spreading throuh the net! Was so confusing.. Good thing i found this famous program at the site: TrafficEqualsMoney.info It has all the things i needed to earn extra big income. Just check the site out! THUMBS UP if this helps. 😉

  5. I’m proud to put my Social links and Google Plus Profile Author Link on my site for this very reason. Viewers should know who the author of a site is and what they intend as an experience.. I’m glad there are people at Google like Matt. This was more of an answer to Matt’s beliefs in the internet experience by it’s users than a reason to change the term SEO. Thanks Matt, James from Arkansas

  6. Best of the Best Work on SEO …Nice good job… Nice Work.. keep going and post more video thanks you so much for this nice information.. Regarding from myseogig.com

  7. SEO = content manipulation, pure and simple. It is inherently amoral. QUALITY CONTENT creation, unfortunately, takes a back seat in MOST SEO’s minds, here in lies the problem and the root of most negative connotations for the SEO industry. Content first, then restrained SEO technique application to bolster or enhance the QUALITY of the original content is what’s needed. Too often, the world of SEO embraces the tail waging of the dog.

  8. Hi Matt, when can I know my website is penalized? I see lot of websites are penalized without webmaster tool notification. Is that malware in webmaster tool only source?

  9. I’ve found if you just follow the Google guidelines - and proved valuable content for your visitors – google treats your site pretty fairly. That being said, I think search engine optimization is still value because of the basics for onpage optimization and things like that. It is both art and science.

  10. Actually Matt would like to see SEO disappear altogether. The last thing they want is relevant search engine results (why would any one need to advertise with Google is Google gave you what you looked for?)
