Discussion on: Let's talk SEO, 10 tips you should know

Matt Mullenweg (WP) stated, a long time ago in a video interview, that one of the best SEO tips for was removing the meta desc. A 30% bump or something.

That's pretty interesting, any chance you can provide a link (or some keywords I can search) to find that reference?

It was a long time ago (many years), I think it was about wp (or wordcamp) & the interviewer asks for one unusual SEO/traffic tip or something.

It came down to "let goo choose some desc keywords from your content" pretty much. Meta desc doesn't do much either way really for 99%. Snippet perhaps, tiny difference.

Looking at wp (org/com) they use them right now. I do too. It's testable.

Not intentionally being vague. If I come across it, I'll drop it here.
