Keep Calm & #followrand

Introducing our “Keep Calm and #followrand” graphic. Each of the four images +1 can be uniquely downloaded (see the links at the end). Inspired by Rand Fishkin’s very English looking twirly moustache. Partly a touch of very English humour but also more seriously both by the prominence of Rand and Moz within the SEO community, so we thought we’d run a series of posts to review the top 5 features of Moz with the graphic to promote the series.

For those of who who don’t know, other than stating where have you been? Mr Rand Fishkin himself has been a vital personality in the SEO sphere for many years, indeed I remember hearing Rand speak at a SMX conference years back while I was just a wee bright eyed and bushy tailed SEO freelancer. Rand started Moz, or what was called SEOMoz back then and now is no doubt the premier suite of SEO tools available to SEO’s and non-SEO’s alike. We also quite liked the notion of promoting Rand’s Britishness, although of course (and sadly) he’s not British!

We’ll be publishing a series of reviews with what we think are the best 5 features of Moz and we’ll also be writing some follow up pieces. The SEO sphere has been shaken in the last couple of years, particularly though not exclusively by the Penguin updates. For me personally Moz has always been a place of stability in all of the chaos that working in SEO involves.

Not regurgitating facts for well not wanting to regurgitate facts sake Rand wrote a piece on the history of Moz which you can read here so I won’t repeat it. Moz actually provide’s value to SEO in many ways. For example check out Rand’s own post on 6 ways to add value in 15 minutes.

As I mentioned in the following days we will be reviewing 5 different aspects of Moz. This was actually really hard to do so what you will have is a totally baised opinion from myself about what those top 5 features are, which are:

  • Whiteboard Friday
  • Stable & Reliable Ranking Software
  •  Ease of Use – Page Grader, Algo update history
  •  Large Community willing to share & help.
  •  My favourite tool – Keyword Difficult Tool
