    Not to impressed but it is cool he is on there and he has built an empire that I can appreciate. (better then mine) but indirect answers are not as fun as trade secrets.


    Right out of The Matt C PLaybook

    "I'm certainly not saying "don't do SEO." You can and should use your SEO knowledge to enhance the value you get from every aspect of this - the content you create, the community you build, the social sharing, etc. But the kind of active "link building focused" SEO that doesn't actually add any value to the business"

    But then again it may work :)

    Rand is more of a marketer I think. All his tactics fundamentally revolve around providing quality content, forming relationships and genuinely improving user experience. That's a long term strategy as opposed to finding some exploits or hacks to make money quick.

    I couldn't agree more with this because that is exactly what he sounds like.

    Thanks for the share but there's not much you are gonna learn from this guy on applicable SEO.

    He just rehashes info he's read on forums like this one and what his drones tell him. He hasn't been behind any real SEO for years now and is milking it for all its worth.

    Watching Whiteboard Friday every well...Friday, and I have to say, that IMHO, what he preaches isn't what he does.

    BHWers like Rand, that's strange. He is shite, what he teaches in "Whitewash friedays" is shite too. Everything he ever speaks is a spinoff of "Earn links with your content" strategy, nothing else.
