    He's Jewish. "Fishkin" isn't his real name.

    I have every Jewish SEO *expert* down as strategically placed promo for Google, and I've yet to be proven wrong...

    Rand is high as fuck... Someone should let him know that we have sellers here selling links ON MOZ. Thus your little MOZ minions and blind sheeple followers that you let guest post on your precious MOZ are infact SELLING LINKS.

    Such a fucking hypocrite.. I'd respect the guy more if he actually told the truth, he knows this industry is buying links hand over fist, day after day.. and that includes the fools that eat up his nonsense, they're all buying or trading links in some form or other.

    Wake up and smell the coffee Rand you big ignoramus!

    He would never agree to that and would never speak out the fact that his guys are selling links on Moz because he is banking on that fact and making money.

    But he is one crazy fucking hypocrite talking shit.

    I think everyone can tell he's talking shit.

    His vision of SEO stops at the Google web master guide lines. He's the white knight of the SEO world, trying to spread that black hats are dog rapists or something and the only way to live is by the guidelines google gives you. I think everyone, including him knows that this is horse shit.

    To say blackhat does not work is saying Googles algorithm is perfect, and that's just not fucking possible and it will never be. There will always be loop holes to exploit. It was blog comments in 2011, then web 2.0's, PBN's, now high authority posts are becoming more and more common... How the fuck can google fight a paid link from huffington post? Are they really going to de-index the whole domain, what about NY times, inc.com, forbes, buzzfeed, MOZ.... all these big sites are now getting easier and easier to post on. You can sign up yourself as a writer or pay someone like t0mmy and others to do that shit for you with no messing around.

    What a load of BS.

    So Moz's consulting years consisted of "creating whitehat content that gets shared naturally" ?

    Most of those points are 2013 at best.

    Moz's failure to jump on the outreach (or at least prospecting) bandwagon amazes me to this day.

    Only good point he makes is that DA isn't perfect and doesn't reflect the value of the links you are getting if you rely on Moz's DA.

    If the nasty blackhats weren't using it as a metric to sell links, do you think he would have said that?

    I don't.

    Do be very careful when distance with an authorite is very "thin".
    Smell a trace of shit will tear you into pieces.

    Feel free to change the tilte into "1-3 Practices That Are Still Effective" would be more attractive.
    Such a long article, must be a disaster after reading it.
