    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!)

    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).

    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

    What he say’s makes a lot of sense. A few bad apples have hurt the SEO industry.

  9. Avneet Thairiani says:

    Search Experience Optimization does sound more apt.

    Change SEO to UCC… Unique Content Creation. 😉

    Hi Matt when I think of SEO, I think more on the broader side because to me it means all things to do with optimising your Website in so many ways.

    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.

  15. Niki Heselmans says:

    I agree that Search Experience Optimisation is the way to go. It’s a good thing this is the basis of Google’s business model.

    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?

    Love it Great Vid Matt :)

  18. Rob Fore says:

    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.

  19. texxs01 says:

    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?)

    *Conversion Optimization* would be a great name because it is the ultimate goal.
