What Questions Do You Want Matt Cutts To Answer?
If you could talk more into what goes into determining which sites are being awarded with authority boosts within their industry/niche?
(36%, 59 Votes) Is Google putting more trust in content based on Google Authorship?
(33%, 53 Votes) It's rare to see a piece of content 6 or more years old rank high. What factors make for "outdated" content that gets devalued? The market? Link drop-out?
(4%, 6 Votes) Does advertising with Google affect the website's organic search rankings?
(3%, 5 Votes) I've done a google disavow to remove bad links a previous SEO did. How do I know if Google Actually processed it, and if I submitted it the right way?
(3%, 5 Votes) Has Google made a determination as to what percentage of links are really spam and why do sites get punished for inbound links that they didn't ask for?
(3%, 5 Votes) Why does Google have a problem with SEO tools displaying scraped ranking data when that's essentially what Google does with the entire web?
(3%, 5 Votes) Keyword stuffing of any kind is not going to improve the ranking of a site in Google, but is it true that less is more?
(2%, 4 Votes) Does it help to be naïve about SEO today? If so, is it possible for a site that is “over optimized” to regain its innocence?
(2%, 4 Votes) It’s clear that some links are unnatural and others are natural, but of those that are natural, which ones should I use the Disavow Tool for and which ones should I leave alone?
(2%, 4 Votes) Why, even after Penguin 2.0, are there still so many top 3 rankings for websites with obviously spammy link profiles?
(2%, 3 Votes) For money keywords (lots of Adwords ads), what percentage of top 10 organic search results are business sites vs. info sites? Big business vs. small business?
(2%, 3 Votes) Why does it take Googlebot so long to find 301 redirects to a new domain from an old one?
(2%, 3 Votes) Does Google distinguish between legit editorial (stories written by journalists) and syndicated content, devaluing the link(s) from syndicated content?
(1%, 2 Votes) When should I disavow an entire domain that links to my site, rather than a few links from that domain?
(1%, 2 Votes)
