How did this possibly make the homepage in 15 minutes? I know this comment is going to be wildly unpopular but...I think this is one of the worst Whiteboard Friday's I've seen from Moz. I left a comment over there so wont just repeat that here but I don't agree with the 'getting more complex' factors either.Moz is and will be for years to come the biggest resource on SEO for pretty much anyone on the internet. Their ads are all over the web, they have published great content for years and they have millions of dollars to attend (and put on) their own conferences which will keep new and experienced marketers coming to their site for years to come.For this reason it would be nice to have examples of them getting stuck into other niches and seeing once again what really seems to be happening. There's definitely no 'one thing' that's more important across the web (not even links anymore) but can't help think their blog posts and data recently would be quite a bit different with a perspective that more relates to ours. The big thing to me is that these results just wouldn't be presented like this if Moz still worked with clients. I know the data from this was not just their own source, but there's a difference between analysing data and actually getting stuck in and monitoring your rankings across different niches. Moving Moz to another domain is a nice test, but it's not something that many people can relate to
"How did this possibly make the homepage in 15 minutes?" Because people looking to score fake internet points use inbound as an RSS reader for Moz. It's guaranteed up-votes. I'd love to know where you can turn in e-karma to pay your mortgage, because people seem crazy for it.
I heard Inbounds Karma points is quite a hit with the ladies... auto share Moz content everyday and you can expect a massive pussy buffet.
