    Hey people of Earth,

    What if we tried to rank the mcutts way?
    Would we even reach top100 for even low competition keywords? xD
    Would we be able to reach top5?

    Reason for this question is to test what mcutts says about seo, ranking and all the trash he says to noobs out there.

    Would be interesting if someone tried to rank the mcutts way and embarrass him publicly xD
    Not an ethic/moral thing to do, but it would be interesting. xD

    Personally I would not waste my time trying to rank the Matt Cutts way, I have far better things to do with my time, like rank the way that ranks sites.

    I think matthew woodward's site is probably relatively close to the "matt cutts" way.

    I would also be interested in this. There is never any case studies disproving what he says *will* rank, only what people know are black hat. In fact, how much does he actually tell us about what will get your site ranking? That is the first question, I think.

    I'd rather rank and make some money than worry about some Google employee

    I guess if you was not interested in making any money for 10 - 15 years, you may eventually rank, but I would rather be making money now, and throwing away sites that Matt does not agree with.

    I doubt if anyone here has the funds to invest in the type of content he talks about. and those who do will usually prefer banking their own way. (and also lets not forget that not all niches are lifehacker type of articles, what kind of fuking sexy content can you get for "laundry nyc"?)

    you see, google don't know wtf is good/awesome/bad content as long as its not an obvious duplicate or other things that are easy to detect (mistakes, grammar at some level etc).
    all it knows is links and starting to go for the AI / UX type of shit. both can be faked so I don't see any real reason to go in his way.

    Many of us are pretty close to this as is.

    The Matt Cutts way is to make a good clean site with good content or an interesting topic. I think several of us do that now. Granted most of us just chase the dollar and their sites are cookie cutter but there are enough of us putting out good stuff.

    Press Releases, Guest Posting, Link Bait, Social media, PPC, Info Graphics, not the cheapest way to go but pretty safe and yes I think you can rank like this. It takes time and money though.

    You mean the way "do not do any SEO at all" ? I think this method really works, but only on niches where you can write huge amount of articles, people are actually interested in reading them or even sharing them on social sites.. but this way you would have so much organic traffic from facebook or twitter that you would not even need that stupid google. I would like to see Matt Cutts ranking all those niches that are not like these big topic niches, small niches where all first positions are occupied by some stupid short articles on sites that are huge and pupolar, but you will find almost no info about the topic you are interested in. These smaller niches are in my opinion simply impossible to rank without offsite SEO whne you build classic small site or blog about them.

    To be honest from me it take exactly 100 Year to rank my site in that way ..
    Why could anyone put new site link in his blogroll without logic reason ..
    I seen a lot of sites banned because of link exchanging buying links . but at less they have chance for 3 or 4 months and make good money from it until next G update so who cares .
    it's cat's and mouse game and we will play as long we doing IM .

    Yea..try to rank in "Hemorrhoids" niche by matt cutts method. Matt cutts way will only work for popular topics where there is lots of buzz and where people are eager to share your stuff and seriously noone has that much patience and time considering google randomly penalizes sites now.

    Matthew woodwards blog is done the way cutts has instructed, and he's doing well. His site is pretty awesome though. Seo to me is like gun control. Ideally you would never want to carry a gun, but if you live in a bad neighborhood and everybody already has guns, the only way to survive is to carry one yourself.

    He doesn't work for the initial search department he works for the SPAM department. This is the very reason his site does not rank first.

    There are many success stories telling about how the good old SEO brought the traffic. There are hardly any telling, that the Matt's way is the right way. it is a waste of time IMO.

    yes I do believe the zero link building / content marketing method is very effective for a lot of people who do SEO the "right" way.

    I agree with all of you guys.
    It would be fun to see mcutts trying to rank for payday loans, insurance and similar. I would pay for that. He probably would be whining and cursing google and his webspam team... Oh wait! He's the head of the webspam team! Haha that would be epic!
