I Got My Education at Google U: Will Google’s Online School Teach us about SEO?

ID-1007460Ian Kahn

Recently on Mashable there was an article on Google talking about how the search engine giant plans to educate the masses: Online schooling for search engines.

What an amazing idea! Google, after releasing its Penguin and Panda updates and causing a stir in the SEO world, Google is now showing internet users the ropes in the search engine world. While thousands of people are helplessly searching the internet for cat videos and pterodactyl comics, will Google’s online school really be of any help?

Google’s school of search engine use will not only give you an in depth lesson on how to use the search engine, they will also provide those who complete the course with a fancy diploma (emailed of course).

Here is what I would like to know: will Google’s online school help marketers understand what Google wants out of SEO?

SEO strategists are always kept on their toes and desperately trying not to wake the sleeping giant. It seems that SEO changes more frequently than the cast members of Law and Order. I feel that even if there is no lesson on SEO, anyone with half a brain can read between the lines and figure out exactly what Google wants from the user to make the user experience that much more fluid.

If you are a social media marketing guru or you just sell baby furniture, you might want to attend class and pay attention to get some sense put into your head.

What do you guys think? Will this Google Online School be worth attending or should we skip class and hang out with the cool kids of SEO?
