This is a short post, but with a lot of information.

I just watched this video online and felt motivated to share it.

This is the complete WordPress SEO presentation of Matt Cutts from WordCamp San Francisco on May 30th 2009.

Matt Cutts works for the Search Quality group in Google, specializing in search engine optimization issues.  Matt Cutts praised WordPress for being the best choice, and his preferred blogging platform. (See Matt’s WordPress blog here) This blog you’re reading right now is built on WordPress too!

According to Matt, WordPress automatically solves a ton of the SEO issues online-marketers might have. The WordPress software, makes your site easily crawlable by search engines, takes care of nearly all of the of mechanics of SEO (80-90%) and is the first big step anyone can take towards creating a popular online business.  He even gave advice on how to find what you should blog about.

In a future post I will explain how to take your online blog and use it as the top part of your sales funnel.  If you’re serious about running an online business in 2010, you must watch this video; Its approximately 45 minutes long, so find a quiet place, grab your favorite drink and enjoy.

Not only do I hope this video was educational to you, I wanted to show you exactly how much research I put into my business in order to have it producing the maximum results.  If you want to be a successful home business owner, I suggest you do the same, shut off your TV, and educate yourself.

If you don’t already have a blog on a private domain name, I recommend getting hosted today using HostGator, these are the professionals who set up my blog, in December 2010. I’ve stayed with them every since.  Right now they have a special deal with HostGator where you can get your hosting for a PENNY. Use the coupon code “WhyWordPress” at checkout.

    I also self-host and use wordpress. That video sounds interesting and I'm going to Stumble this page so that I can come back to it the next time I want to watch tellie instead of create for my biz.

    Interesting info: I found your blog through FormSpring.me because we're Twitter mates. I *LOVE* all this on-line connecting :~)

    Thanks for connecting with me on my blog. You've got to watch that video, its very insitful on what google is looking for in a blog that it lists in search engines.
    I just joined formspring yesterday. I guess it really does work for connecting people.

    So I just watched and there really is some great stuff in that presentation. It's really cool to hear from Google what works for SEO since so many peeps are putting their 2 cents in. Sometimes there is so much information, it's hard to determine who's advice to follow.

    This video has definitely inspired me to re-visit my keywords, refine, and be more intentional. I also didn't know about the webmaster tool, so thanks for sharing this info!

    I agree there is nothing cooler then hearing from Google, what works and what doesn't work. Glad to see you enjoyed my content.

    I agree. WP blogs can definitely help cut back work when you want to have higher rankings on search engines, especially Google. But of course, you still need to put up some extra efforts to ensure you are always ranking with you targeted keywords.

    Thanks for the share.

    First, I love San Francisco, those images brought back memories when I lived there for a couple of years. Second, love Matt Cutts presentation and how it is so relevant to today. I was sold to have my own WP.org blog several months ago and am so glad I did. I also have the Platinum SEO package which has been a great tool for my blog. Thanks for sharing this video Cory!

    Great, useful blog, but you really MUST learn to spell, or get your content checked by someone who can – pluggins => plugins; insitful => insightful – it really spoils reading it for those of us who can spell.
