Lean Investing by Dave McClure – Capital Factory Demo Day 2010

Presented at the Capital Factory Demo Day on September 8, 2010 in Austin, Texas. Dave McClure is a greedy, blood-sucking venture capitalist & founding general partner at 500 Startups, an internet startup seed fund and incubator program in Mountain View, CA. He likes to hang out with entrepreneurs, and occasionally help or invest in their startups if they are foolish enough to let him. Dave has been geeking out in Silicon Valley for over twenty years, and has worked with companies such as PayPal, Mint, Founders Fund, Facebook, LinkedIn, SlideShare, Twilio, Simply Hired, O’Reilly Media, Intel, & Microsoft. Years ago he used to do real work like coding or marketing or running conferences, but these days he mostly does useless stuff like sending lots of email, blogging, and hanging out on Facebook and Twitter. Dave also likes to play ultimate frisbee when his knees don’t hurt. About Capital Factory: Capital Factory is an early stage accelerator for tech startups based in Austin, Texas. Startup companies participate in an intense 10-week summer program that gives them up to 000 in cash, more than 000 in free services, and mentorship by a group of successful entrepreneurs. The program culminates in a demo day where the startups present to investors, the press, and the world. For more information on Capital Factory, visit http

Dave Pasternack hates SEO, why is that?

Question by Ran R: Dave Pasternack hates SEO, why is that?
I keep reading that Dave Pasternack hates SEO, or search engine optimization. My company is looking to hire someone for this type of work but on a news article he states that it is useless and any one can do it. That I should just sign up an account with something called Google Adwords or Yahoo Search Marketing. Everytime I search around to see who Dave Pasternack is I keep coming across sites that talk about cakes and chefs.

Best answer:

Answer by Irishtek
I have experience with SEO work.

Signing up for Google adwords and Yahoo search marketing can help you generate visitors to your site but that is not enough for SEO.

1) It does not guarantee that the person coming in will provide revenue to your site.
2) Someone does have to monitor which ads are being chosen and which are not.
3) Someone has to know the value of the chosen ads.
4) This same person has to be able to adjust the ads regularly to optimize profit for the site.
5) Neither approach will get you a high rank in regards to SEO. (There may be benefit towards SEO – but it’s not the sole answer)
6) SEO requires work of the person monitoring the ads in coordination with the developer of the site for success.
7) Success doesn’t always mean profit. I have seen a site draw in 2000 new visitors a month, and not make a sale. I’ve worked with other sites that spend $ 20,000/month but their site sells $ 60,000+ due to these ads.
8) This work, whether anyone can do it or not – doesn’t matter. It’s a full-time job (maybe more depending on the site)
