Linky Goodness, July 18



In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Friday. Woot.

  • German Google Webmaster Central blog has a fun interview with Matt Cutts on porn, big feet and spam. The post has a German translation of the transcript, but the video itself is in English.
  • Need help with Google Webmaster Toots, Google Analytics and/or Google Website Optimizer? An hour-long YouTube webinar covering all three is now live (via).
  • CNET says Eric Schmidt thinks Google will hit the mother lode when they get YouTube advertising right. Good thing they’re still brainstorming.
  • We’ve had a bit of a debate before here on whether branding or search is the “wave of the future.” Google took the hint, according to MediaPost and recently released a study saying that Search Marketing Increases Brand Value. But does that answer the question or not?

    I agree with Eric Schmidt!

    Look at television. Isn’t it the largest revenue generating advertising market? Internet is the fastest growing? Put the two together, what do you get…?

    I think they just have to figure out a way to maximize their distribution channel. They’re innovative. They’ll figure out a way.

    I am just heading off to look at the analytics video, I need some help tracking external clicks. According to content overlay in analytics, not a single link has ever been clicked (which cannot actually be the case!)

    I feel that television is on the decline, with the internet on the up. Advertising via the web is a lot more cost effective, and much more targeted, than television could ever be.

    Television advertising is very good for larger brands with the big media budgets…some things never change!
