    hehe good idea Danny. Womder if those MattPasses could be transferable. They’d be up on eBay pretty quick I think…

    I love the Mattpass idea! But, I’m not sure Matt would agree…

    After all – he would get stuck with all the extra work…

    Perhaps it might be better to kidnap Matt, tie him up, and stuff him in a closet. Then sell MattPasses to allow people in for 5 minute interrogation sessions…

    I like this, although I’m not sure it should have to be Matt’s image they use. Why not cycle through several Googlers’ images? That would help take some of the pressure off Matt.

    MattPasses – Good as cash but twice as fast!

    Sounds like a winner to me!

    Ms. Matt virtual entity – Brilliant!

    So, the rumors that he’s actually been sending one of his two Matt CuttClones to the conferences are false?

    Let’s see. Two MattPasses per domain… 100 million domains… multiply and carry the one, okay.

    Uh oh.

    Agreed, I was thinking that you could have different Googlers kick in at different points. That’s also sort of what I was hinting at about using the videos. But I still think Matt would make the best mascot. Alternatively, you could have a choice of male or female guide, maybe have Matt and Vanessa Fox be your choices.

    Matt, understood on the number of domains possibly being an issue. That’s why I said it might have to be account based. And that still might not be a solution, if you had a lot of people set up a bunch of accounts. But it would be fun to experiment with. Maybe it could be tied to how long you’ve had a sitemaps account, size of domain, how recent the site launch is, etc.

    Why not just post your Google questions on Yahoo Answers? Oh!! Ouch. I just search Yahoo Answers and there are people asking about Google search, indexing, AdSense, GoogleBase, general SEO.
