Curated Marketing News, SEO Spam, Top Blogs, Inbound Marketing, Speedlink 07:2012

Hi everyone. Hope you all had a fantastic week. This week, and unless I have missed out something noteworthy (please do let me know if I did), I really have not seen anything related that made my eyes pop, with the exception of Rand Fishkin’s (SEOMoz, soon MOZ) new “Community-curated Marketing News” site Inbound. Launched some two weeks ago, these type of sites have been popping all over the place, however, if you are a marketer, an interested party, or a SEO addict, then I highly encourage you to visit the site as it is a resource haven for all things marketing. Really good!

On a side note, and I am not sure how I missed this one,  Matt Cutts (watch video below) replies to one question that many have been wanting to know about – Does Google Treat SEO as SPAM?

As usual, in no particular order:

Blogging/Online Business (tips and tools)


Social Web/Other Stuff

Does Google consider SEO to be spam?

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great week ahead.

  • I agree with Matt Seo is not Spam and Google respect optimized sites but we need to follow the instruction of Google webmaster tools.But Now Google give more importance to content well and meaningful content give more value to your site.

  • Yes, I do agree on your statement Riz, I think Google just allows good content site and thus really makes sense. Importantly, we must follow the set rules so that we couldn’t disobey them.

  • SEO is definitely not spam, but there are those out there that take advantage of this system, which is why it seems like Google is cracking down on us doing SEO. I wish there were a way to tell spam from SEO a lot easier though.

  • This is a great roundup of resources. I especially appreciate the video that Matt is answering the question if Google considers SEO to be spam. It’s a great resource to answer those who preach against SEO because they truly don’t understand it.
    All the best,

  • Thanks for sharing these informative and useful links.

    Didn’t really think of SEO as spam until now! Could be the SEO contributes towards spam sites but ideally, I don’t consider SEO as spam in general

  • So so True,
    I really enjoyed the video. SEO is totally not spam in any way. I can honestly say having found a good SEO expert has helped me fix up my site in massive leaps and bounds. I’ve gone from stumbling round in the dark to knowing what readers want.
    This stuff would have taken me years to learn on my own.

  • Anyone who will try to getting close to Google algorithm or say the original vision of Larry Page and Sergey Brian that how the web should be organised, will be considered as spammers. This is my finding.
