  1. Rand Fishkin added a comment on What do you think of Moz's new Keyword Explorer tool?
    @BrandonHassler Hi Brandon - sure, happy to add my thoughts on those topics. 1) One of the best ways to treat the issue of overweighting is to use the "Importance" Score in KW Explorer. You can sele…

    @jessicawebbica A lot of the basics on email marketing are still huge - headlines, content, the CTA link in the email, how long to make it, the sender's name, visuals vs. text only vs. HTML, etc. We'v…

    @HenryGFranco One of our craziest was many years ago with http://www.conversion-rate-experts.com/seomoz-case-study/. It worked amazingly well - almost unbelievable how it changed the trajectory of the…

    @phenomenalseo Whoa! I don't think I can take credit for that last bit, but thanks a ton Bob. Really kind of you to say.
  9. Rand Fishkin added a comment on Why are all Web 2.0's coming up as DA 1 & PA 1 in Open Site Explorer?
    This was an error on our part. There was an effort to put domains with more than 10,000 subdomains on a blacklist, as 99% of these were spam. However, there wasn't a careful review of the domains goin…
