Do Tag Clouds Help or Hinder SEO?

Came across this video of Matt Cutts discussing tag clouds yesterday.

Short, to the point and very relevant for anyone with a blog (especially Wordpress) who just has a bunch of widgets around without a real purpose for them being there.

Enjoy and let me know what you think with a comment.


Stephen Georgulis Keyword – Google Caffeine Test

Hi, Stephen Georgulis here with a quick post that is basically for testing purposes (but does have a quick announcement at the end).

I mentioned at the end of yesterday's post that I was testing how quick Google Caffeine would index it… which would consequently have it appearing on Page 1 due to the target keyword being relatively low competition.

Well the results came in… quickly!

In fact, it took just a measly 50 seconds or so for my post to be indexed and appearing on Page 1 of Google for my chosen keyword term. Pretty incredible.

But it gets better. Today I'm testing a new Wordpress Plugin that should make this process even faster – in fact, INSTANTANEOUS!

So this is actually another test and just for fun – with another very low competition keyword for simplicity – I've chosen to briefly talk about myself.

Yes me, Stephen Georgulis.

But rather than just rumble on about myself for a minute I'm going to combine this test with a genuine announcement.

I'm going to start posting as I think of it about some of my favourite tools and resources – beginning today.

I find that when you're on a computer or doing business all the time you come across hardware, software and other tools that make life so much easier and lots of other people don't know about.

For example, I work with some guys who are 7-figure earners online… and yet they don't even have password managers on their computers! (Insane I know!)

So I've decided I'm going to blog about all sorts of recommendations on here too. Kind of like a "Stephen Georgulis Seal of Approval" I guess, but even if I don't think something is the best of it's kind I will still mention it if I think it's value.

So that's all for now but stay tuned folks. I'll probably give my first recommendation (bet you can't guess what that might be) later today.
