Matt Cutts’ top videos of the last year

I’m sure you already heard — head of the webspam team at Google, Matt Cutts, is now on leave for a few months. I believe that every hard working man deserves a long vacation from time to time, so I’m happy for him.

As I was going through the Google Webmasters YouTube channel to see if I missed anything important lately, I decided to list the top 17 videos I found from the last year.

Hope you find it useful!
