    Whether you are an elite SEO or newbie ? do not ignore what is about to be revealed.

    At the Ungagged / BlackHatWorld conference in Vegas last month there was 1 speaker that stunned & silenced an entire audience of elite blackhat SEO?s.

    That speaker was John Limbocker & he has been in the game since before SEO even had a name. He revealed an awful lot of interesting things about how Google has changed in the past year.

    He has produced an awesome video for the blog sharing some of the stuff he shared at the conference - but not all of it, got to keep some things under wraps!

    Maybe reupload it on Vimeo Matthew, it is not visible, atleast in my country, it just gives some error. Tried on multiple device. I think Google has already obscured it, being youtube a product of them as we all know.
    Anyone with my same problem can just download it tough with some 3rd party site/w.e to download yt vids.

    There is nothing "revealed" here, social signals have no real impact on your rankings (tested it and i could not get a low term keyword ranked with only social signals) all it does is justifying (in theory) your backlinks.

    The rest of this video and the article on your site is nothing more than linkbait, the whole list of filled with have myths (dup content) and common sense (have your link surrounded by relevant text) also google using bounce rates that is news from 2012. 0_o

    Nice list for when you're just in SEO, but of you have done some real testing you know that 50% of that list is Google propaganda.

    Here are the key take away points from the video:

    - Google is using Safe Browsing service in all major browsers to get data. Instead of relying upon Google Analytics. This allows Google to harvest data from nearly everyone using the internet. They can measure many metrics using this data.

    - Branded keywords help all other keywords rank

    - Build social signals, now a major ranking factor. Particularly Google +1s (authentic)

    - Even faked social signals should help, but use caution.

    Top 3 UX Ranking Factors
    ------------------------
    - Brand recognition
    - Click Through Ratio
    - Interaction with site

    Write better meta descriptions. Such as "click to get a free..." so the user doesn't know what exactly you're giving away so they are encouraged to click through.

    It's possible if he skims through it. That's how I watch webinars and other SEO videos. For webinars, I wait until it's over and then watch the replay in a quarter of the total duration of the webinar.

    I literally cringed when I heard that "guru" mentioning social signals.

    Seriously Matthew, you're a great marketeer, but your SEO-advice is mediocre at best.

    He talks a lot about getting that CTR higher by writing good titles and descriptions...but Google can change them to whatever they want...and I have been seeing them do this more frequently. Especially on larger pieces of content they take bits and pieces from multiple parts of the page and completely ignore the description...creating a total cluster fuck of a description.
