Over the past few months Matt Cutts of Google has does another great collection of videos over on Youtube.
In this post I’ve listed my ‘super 7′ from the past few months and in the videos Matt talks about the following areas;
This weeks question is around website pages, PDFs and duplicate content:
I run an eCommerce construction site, on each product page I have the full specification and then have a PDF download with the same content.
Will the PDFs cause an issue with internal duplicate content?
This is an interesting question…
I’ve been a long term user of Google Webmaster Tools. Along with Analytics, its a brilliant tool to gather further data and insights into your site.
But what about the other search engines? What other alternatives are there?
Within this post, I give an insight in to a friends website which I’ve been working on for the past 12 months and document all the processes I went through with a penalised domain.
A good friend of mine purchased an online business in June 2012, this came with a website (the domain was around 6 years old), an Analytics account, Google Webmaster Tools and the like.
When the business was acquired the website ranked very well, mainly top 10 results for around 30 important and broad keywords which delivered traffic and enquires on a daily basis.
Once purchased, I got the chance to dig around the site along with looking into the backlink profile. It was clear that work was needed to be done. It’s important to note, I wasn’t involved in the business sale process and didn’t no anything about the domain until everything had been finalised.
This weeks questions comes off the back of a post I wrote in 2011 around daily SEO tasks.

This is a great question and one I’m really keen to answers, so on a daily basis I do the following:
Read, read, read, and then read again – It’s important to stay close to a changing landscape, and I will typically spend 30 minutes a day going through a number of sites, many of which can be found here.
