SE Round Table’s Tamar Weinberg provides an in-depth analysis of the first day’s events at the 2007 Search Marketing Expo in Seattle.
You & A with Matt Cutts

A live question and answer session with Google’s own Matt Cutts. Here are a few of the questions that were posed to Matt:

  • I have a question about image results in the search results page. How is this going to evolve?
  • Why does Google love Wikipedia? When will you break up with him?
  • A lot of people have found that supplemental pages don’t come up. Is this the way that they’ll be in the future, or will they be found in search results if there are links in the near future?

Matt Cutts finished the session by asking everyone what they’d like to see from the Webmaster Console.
