Google Webmaster Tools Releases Two Q&A Videos This Week

The first video asks a question about grammar in comments. Some people have wondered why this would even be a concern. Well, Google has made it clear that quality writing and good grammar are important factors. So if you have a blog post and 20 comments with bad grammar it is reasonable to wonder if that “content/text” could hurt the site/page. Watch below to see Matt Cutts answer this question.

The next video is fairly lengthy and Brian Harish asks about what types of things the webspam team at Google deals with. Matt breaks down what is examined by his team and he even tells you about different team roles and processes. All webmasters and marketers should really listen to the specifics Matt mentions and try to gain some insights; how can you look good in the future? Watch the video and see! :)
