Hey guys! Greetings for you.
Matt Cutts, the head of Google’s web-spam team is giving you a chance to ask him a question.
Actually he is planning to record (Videos) some webmaster questions next week. As such, Matt Cutts is quite famous for taking questions from webmasters about various aspects and developments of Google and SEO. Which he usually record in a video format and uploads to YouTube for better publicity.
If you don’t want to ask any question, it’s OK. Just checkout various questions asked by webmasters around the world, and play around a little bit by voting them Up-and-Down.
Few interesting questions asked so far:
1. Do internal website links with exact match keyword anchor text hurt a website? These links help our users navigate our website properly. Are too many internal links with the same anchor text likely to result in a ranking downgrade because of Penguin?
2. Lots of SEOs are saying negativeSEO is super easy, but it hasn’t become widespread. Can my competitor really get my site penalized simply by posting a lot of spammy blog comments that link to me?
3. Google has expressed in the past that frequently updated pages get a boost in rankings (QDF), that seems to favor blogs and news sites over company sites, which have less reason to be updated often. How important of a signal is “freshness” ?
4. Can the hosting company’s reputation ( having a lot of spammy sites) influence my site’s ranking in search results?
5. Often scrapers of my content get their pages indexed quicker, thus, get more traffic and links, references. Will setting up “fat ping” (or pubsubhubbub) for my site help me in rankings?
I know, you must be thinking of what question I have asked.
Currently, guest blogging is the favorite activity of webmasters for link acquisition. Due to its easy nature, lots of spammy activities are going on like article spinning, content duplication etc. Is Google going to hammer links acquired by guest blogging, either by devaluing, or completely defusing or by penalizing?

Come on guys! Just ask the question which you have been thinking to ask an SEO expert since log time. Who knows, it might be your turn to be featured on Matt’s video.
