    "The strategy shift means we will not be investing in Followerwonk or Moz Content."

    "To align the organization with this strategic shift, we will be asking about 28% of Mozzers to leave."

    https://moz.com/blog/moz-is-doubling-down-on-search

    I guess there is more to it than good content after all.

    Mozzers?

    Sounds pretty much like a bunch of nerds engaged in "sword fighting" while they are watching Will and Grace.

    Problem with moz is they try and do everything, so they just do everything poorly. Ever do a backlinks profile check with moz then ahrefs, you'll see the difference.

    Mozzers? Sounds like eight teenage lads experimenting with each other.

    Example.

    Last night we all smoked bongs and had a real good Mozzer party.

    Yeah... their content was a bunch of fluff for the most part. Very little hard data.

    Just a nice way to say they are discontinuing 2 of their products.

    Fuck moz anyway. They need to get their crawler off of granny mode to be close to useful.

    How that clown gets invited to speak at all these conferences and have people pay for their service baffles me, their backlink profiles are pure crap. Just goes to show you that as long as you look smart people will give you money, there's hope for everyone! Of course I judge everyone with handlebar mustaches harshly, except for Ste. Fishkin, there's an exception to every rule :)

    Peace,

    Content isn't king, Content is Queen. Now Promotion, that is King. What good is content if you don't promote it or link to it? (nothing)
