Good interview covers topics like hidden links, domain value in SEO, 100 links per page, canonicalization, internal linking problems, using Flash, and more.

Another great interview  from stonetemple."I would say that while a domain name can be a factor in some ways how we view sites, how we view links; I would really say that it is relatively a minimal factor."

Its great the Google is reaching out the hand the way they have in the last few years, and Adam seems like a genuine person.I think my only problem with these interviews is when they step beyond their scope. They are Google engineers, and we haven’t any reason to think they have strong experience on the ground designing the user experience, so when they say things like"actually have some text around them. .... That is more likely to capture a user’s attention,"I get a little annoyed. We’re reading the interview for information on Google. The boys and girls from the engines shouldn’t be telling us how our sites should work anymore than they would think to inform us on how the internals of Yahoo’s engine works.Fine: "links with text around them will be given more weight than a list by the bot" (assuming it can be interpreted to mean that)Wrong: "links with text around them will be more likely to capture your user’s attention"IMHO
