    Smile ALERT! Google and SEO

    Alert! Google Announces a New SEO Over-Optimization Penalty
    Matt Cutts sounds like a total imbecile!

    Joe: I’m not sure I understand how you can “over” optimize something. If it’s “optimal,” that means it’s perfect. If you’ve “over optimized,” that means you’ve made it … um … too perfect?

    Matt: Yes, exactly. You’ve made it too perfect. You’ve followed the rules too well.

    Joe: And why is that bad?

    Matt: It’s bad because the rules are supposed to be secret, and so you aren’t supposed to know what they are.

    Joe: And so if I’m not supposed to know the rules, does it matter if I break them?

    Matt: Yes, of course. Don’t be stupid.

    Joe: But how am I supposed to follow the rules if I’m not supposed to know what they are?

    Matt: You just are. Don’t be stupid.

    Joe: And if I follow the rules too well, that’s bad too?

    Matt: Yes, of course. We just went over this. <under breath> Idiot. </under breath>

    Joe: And what if I follow some of the rules but not all the rules, is that good?

    Matt: It depends. If you follow the right rules and you ignore the right rules, then yes, that’s good.

    Joe: So there are rules about which rules to follow?

    Matt: Of course.

    Joe: I think maybe I’m catching on here. What you’re saying is that I should … umm … I should pretend I don’t know some things even though I know them. I should make believe that I’m one way when really I’m another. … In a way, it’s like I should kind of play hard to get. … Would you say that?

    Matt: Me? No, I wouldn’t say that. That sounds stupid.

    Joe: I know it sounds stupid, but would you say it’s true?

    Matt: What is “true”?

    Joe: Ummm … Not false?

    Matt: That was a rhetorical question.

    Joe: Was it? … Oh, sorry. Umm … well, I guess I just have one more question.

    Matt: Go ahead.

    Joe: So these rules about which rules to follow – are they secret too?

    Matt: Of course.

    Joe: But … but … none of this makes any sense!

    Matt: (heavy sigh)
    A MUST READ!

    There ya go. Added the link for you. Not sure it was where you found it, but this source is credible as well, and has some great info to read through after the transcript, and there is a link to the original audio in the post as well.

    It just looks like to me that Matt Cutts is saying the same thing he usually says and has been saying for a long time. Do on page SEO but don't do off page SEO.

    Umm, you left out this part of the article right before the excerpts above:

    All of this leads us to the question, “What is over optimization?”

    This is a tricky one when you actually start to think about. And so to help us get to the answer, we’ll set up an imaginary dialogue between two people. Let’s call these two people Joe and Matt. Matt knows what “over optimization” is all about. Joe doesn’t.
    These are the kind of posts that drive me crazy. jduke6, your post is telling people that Matt Cutts actually said what you posted. I found that not to be true in like 2 minutes of research only going to the page that Phoenyx posted for you...

    Something that sound interesting that if We Follow few Right Rules by Ignoring other Right rules then also it would Helps Rather not Going for Blackhat is More Good to Go for Few Whitehat links if m not Wrong !

    Good conversation but whatever we follow today may be wrong in future as Google keeps on changing these rules with time.

    Yeah Google is all over the board right now, banning adsense accounts left and right and slapping sites for "unnatural links". They're so out of hand that they actually reversed one of their updates a few days ago because it removed so many sites. The over optimization stuff is ridiculous, and is real disturbing where it's all heading.

    That was actually a mistake they made and admitted to it. My site was one of the many sites effected. Look here for more information.

    It seems ridicolous but sadly those immaginary dialogue is very close to the truth.. They are doing a big mess .
