MattCutts WordCamp 2007 LectureThis is a video of the one hour long lecture given by Matt Cutts at the WordCamp 2007 conference in San Francisco, CA two weeks ago on the topic of Whitehat SEO tips for Bloggers.

For those not familiar, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and this lecture is all about ways to make your Web site rank higher in Google and the other search engines. I’ve also written an article on this topic called Improving Search Engine Rankings over at

Matt’s presentation is available here, and when I get a chance I’ll try to go back and plug them into the video in the appropriate spots. In the meantime I did manage to get most, if not all, of them on film although they might be a little difficult to read – especially in the low quality versions required by the video hosting sites.

This video is currently available on Viddler, Revver (Part 1, Part 2) and Blip.TV. They each offer it in different download formats in case you want to take it with you. The highest quality versions are on Revver and Blip.TV.

Also, please feel free to grab the code and embed any of the WordCamp videos in your own sites. We filmed these lectures so that the millions of WordPress users who were NOT able to attend WordCamp would be able to hear the messages.

Finally, there are about 30 WordCamp videos here now from the last three WordCamp’s I attended, so there is an amazing amount of information if you are just learning WordPress. Specifically there are videos from 2007, and from 2008.

    These days it is very tough to compete against some of the biggest seo companies out there who are doing things on the border of black and white hat seo. What are we little people supose to do. I read the article and understand what you are saying but I do not think that will totally help.
