tiling over concrete

I just pealed away my vinyle in my bath and found concrete underneath. I know I need to clean it thouroughly, but do I need to seal it before i put on the grout?

The video I saw here on the forum seems rather simple. There must be more to be aware of.

Do not seal. Scrape up any glue left over from the vinyl then tile.

If you got lots of cracks in your slab, then it gets a little more involved.

I've heard some contractors say to seal the concrete and some who say not to. I'm confused. Did I misunderstand?
