Matt Cutts Goes Back In Time To Tell Gmail User About Old Feature

By: Chris Crum - February 12, 2013

Google’s Matt Cutts has proven once again that no user-submitted question is too mundane to warrant an answer. In the latest “Webmaster Help” video, Cutts semi-mockingly responds to the question:

It would be a really great feature to mark an email as important in Gmail. Will this ability ever be added?

After “going back in time to add that feature,” and “using the time machine,” (which involves some Wayne’s World-esque hand gestures and sound effects) he discusses Google’s Priority Inbox feature, which was launched in 2010.

Cutts has never been particularly uptight in these videos, but in recent ones, he seems to really be cutting loose. See these recent videos of Cutts impersonating a dinosaur.

    Absolutely! Matt Cutts always takes his time to answer the best of the best questions but this one was not the question which deserved to be answered by him, its for the person who asked the question who should have gone through Gmail support and could have found an immediate solution. There would be many other important webmaster and site issue related questions in the pipeline which he could have been answered.
