So I am sure it's no secret to the my fellow members here Moz has laid of a large portion of it's employees. That's just news that comes and goes. They claim it was all for Doubling Down On Search and a restructuring of the company. Anyone with a brain can translate that into "We are losers and our products didn't work." Of course they're going to put a nice face on it and act out the tears of laying off labor that apparently didn't make them any money. Got it. Now a decent portion of those workers are reentering the for hire labor force for the first time in awhile with this nifty little website. They claim that their local SEO products are doing great. In my opinion the MozLocal tool is an overpriced piece of shit, but that review is for another time. Here's the point I am getting to. Do you think Moz has finally realized the only success it's had is within it's metric calculation? Of course DA/PA which can be easily manipulated captures the hearts of noobs and is an OK metric when you know how to really manually check a website. (I prefer Majestic anyway.) Next, what do you think the state of the economy is in this industry? In my opinion the digital economy as I would call is usually has a delayed impact when the stocks, housing markets, and local businesses are having hard times. Local towns are seeing ma and pa shops just go away. So again what is your opinion of the "State of inbound" as MOZ would say? Besides charging too much for too little do you think their layoffs are a side-effect of a larger issue? How would someone say from 2007 on this board compare everything to today?
