  1. If I was a MOZ or a Rand Fishken (meaning a world authority) I would find it easy to get links. But I am Vincent Sandford of SEO Synovation and the real world for me and my clients is much harder. Using social media as a primary tool to get links does not work for us. We produce reasonable content and get a small percentage of visitors to our websites thru social media. As result we tailor back our efforts on social media link building as CTR and conversions are very low. However link method 2 is interesting for us and we will try it i its not very time consuming. Do you have other tips to link building for small organisation – and I mean small?

  2. As always, great stuff, +Rand Fishkin  You're the man. Seriously considering signing up with +Moz. I could really use your tools for my business.
    (PS- ^^^ see what I did up there? 😉

  3. I disagree with one lil thing, if you just post a comment that praise the content , you do add one value : an interaction. And a positive comment can turn someone who wouldn't bother watching into someone who will give it a shot.

  4. Very informative video, but I'd like to access here: and it's not being possible. I need to see video description. But that's ok to watch here. =)

  5. Some very good points. May I add link begging, it's mentioned in a new video from you guys above, but to anyone who who's watching this video, social is a great way to ask for links. See heart to heart video above.

  6. Hey Rand, Greetings from Canada. We're an SEO company here, and we'd like to let you know that everyone at the office keeps up with you regularly. We're absolutely pleased by the quality of your content and services.

    Many Thanks,
