Hey, those Google glasses are showing up everywhere!
Hundreds of people are crowded into a conference room at the SMX Advanced conference on the Seattle waterfront right now listening to Matt Cutts, the Google engineer who serves as the company’s liaison to search marketers and web publishers.
Answering questions from Search Engine Land’s Danny Sullivan, he’s running through the technical nuances of the company’s Penguin update to its search algorithm, and how it affects site rankings. (Hence the stuffed animals on the stage in the picture above.)
But before they jumped into the questions, Cutts and Sullivan said they were fortunate enough to have gotten their hands on two early prototypes of Google’s Project Glass spectacles — actually just oversized plastic frames with mobile phones taped to one lens.
Cutts joked that his could detect the people in the audience who pay for web links.
