Interview of Google Software Engineer Matt Cutts

Oct 10th

The man, the myth, the Mick Jagger of search, well I guess he doesn't really go by that name ;) but...

Matt Cutts was nice enough to answer a bunch of questions I asked him via email.

For the gray hat in the crowd, I asked Matt what fields SEOs should look at as search advances. He said:

If you're creative, I'd look at the marketing/buzz aspect of things. A person who is savvy about marketing will often have a good leg up on interactions with people. If you are a talented backend person, there's a ton of neat start-ups right now. 2-3 people in different places can collaborate on some nice stuff. If you're a button-pusher, I'd try to diversify that skillset. ;)

Interesting that he chooses LookSmart's Grub as his favorite spider. Have you seen what LookSmart is doing lately? NY Times using Furl as the foundation of the TimesSelect TimesFile? Wow
Viacom using Looksmart to power it CBS local sites?
ASK using the ad platform? What fired them up all of a sudden?
