    Great video, love watching Matt and listening to his plain and simple speaking style.

    On the Google ads stuff my question(comment is that a site that gets visibility through ads gets a good starting point for the first few clicks.

    If the content is good, Google will recognize this right away through visitors actions. So in a way, Google ads will get you a head start, and if your content is good, people will stay on your site, share it and create more traffic this way.

    I've heard those conspiracy theories. Then, pointed out to people that there is a whole opposite camp. It's like arguing politics or religion with people: pure ideology, 0% facts. :)

    Hello Matt. Here is the main myth about SEO: "Your position depends only on moon phase". And there is my rationale... look at the top of "buy viagra" request. What will we see? The bulk of sites which violated all rules you described everywhere. A lot of doorways which have just few sentences and 1-2 keywords on a page. What are you talking about? For whom? =)

    So, how does Google take into account social signals? Do they count or not and if so how much. Just level with us.
