Funny Google Matt Cutts Mashup Video

It has been a long couple months for the search marketing community between the Penguin update, a Panda refresh, the link notifications and the parked domain bug – you guys need a laugh.

Sam Applegate put together a hysterical parody video of Matt Cutts talking about how to achieve number one ranking in Google. The video takes dozens of the videos Matt put together from the YouTube channel and mashes them into a video I think you all will appreciate.

Here is the video:
