So what is webspam anyway?

By John Jantsch

Matt CuttsMatt Cutts is the head of Webspam for Google and in this episode he shares his tips for ranking well in Google. (For the record, starting a blog was one of his highest priority tips.)

We spend a fair amount of time validating the fact that blogs will help you rank higher in the search indexes. That’s enough ROI to do it.

He also confirmed that the meta description tag and alt attributes are currently used by Google. In fact, we cover most of the on page code tags and attributes.

Also, pay close attention to the riff on sitemaps and Sitemap.org.

You can also catch a video of Matt talking about the importance of Alt image attributes for SEO on the Duct Tape Marketing Workbench and even more of Matt on Google Video.
