Interview with a Former Google Webspam Team Member

What`s the point of talking to an ex-Googler?

One day out of the loop and they are already misleading you. I am sorry,  Steve Wiideman , but I`d rather talk to a live Googler and get nothing. Interesting chat though. :)

    One day out of the loop and they are already misleading you. I am sorry, ; , but I&#39;d rather talk to a live Googler and get nothing. Interesting chat though. :)
  • Steve Wiideman: What an exciting day! I still can&#39;t believe this conversation actually happened. I&#39;d love your thoughts if you have a few moments.
  • Steve Wiideman: I hear ya - sometimes we take what we can get. Other times learning how someone thinks can help you predict actions and better understand changes.

    It&#39;s possible that the answers I received were based more on past experiences with people and less about the details of the functionality.

    However, it&#39;s awesome that my own experiments, tests, and inferences align with what I was told.

    Fortune teller or not, I have hope, and that still means something to me if nobody else. :)
  • Jim Munro: Yes, , I agree, that would be awesome.

    Would you be interested in joining our Panel to expand on your article during the Dumb SEO Questions HOA SEO News Roundup? You will be made welcome. ;We run every Thursday night and would accommodate a time to suit your time zone.
  • Steve Wiideman: I&#39;d be honored - I&#39;m available this Thursday and next. Can&#39;t speak for the following, but sounds like fun.

    Just to confirm, we&#39;re talking about Dumb SEO &#39;Questions&#39;, not &#39;Dumb SEO&#39; Questions, right? Sometimes I do feel like the latter. :)

    Give me a call at the office anytime: 562-846-1332 or via Skype (steve.wiideman).
  • Jim Munro: It should be fun.  ; ; ; ; ; ;and others will make you welcome. :)

    I am tied up this afternoon and have another HOA in 4 hours but I will try to call you after that. Failing that, I will definitely be in touch on Monday.

  • Micah Fisher-Kirshner: Keep an eye on ​though, he has nefarious connections

  • Tim Capper: Thanks ​ for blowing my cover.
  • Jim Munro: KGB :)
  • Richard Hearne: FWIW I reckon I can guess who he spoke with. Would take 2 guesses to be exact. But there&#39;s nothing in there that would get this ex. Googler in trouble at all IMO.
  • Tim Capper: They are all insane ​ ..... completely!
  • Steve Wiideman: Guys I&#39;m on Skype (steve.wiideman) if you want some hints.
