10 New SEO Changes At Google Coming This Summer

On Monday, Matt Cutts (the head of search spam at Google) broke away from tradition and pre-announced some changes Google will be making regarding SEO and webspam later this summer. He briefly touched on ten or so changes that will be coming to Google's algorithms and search results in the "next few months".

As always, Matt added the usual disclaimer that priorities and timelines may change between now and then - but this is what is scheduled currently. Here's a quick summary of the ten points followed by the video:
