What I'd Change, Keep the Same, & Don't Yet Know

This post covers my presentation (and visuals) from the Business of Software conference: http://bit.ly/WhatIdChange. I focused on what I regret, what I'd repeat, and some of the questions I don't yet have answers to over my last 15 years at Moz.
The older I get, the less sure of myself I become. Humility, it seems, naturally advances with age, while certainty diminishes. Hopefully, that’s part of the “wisdom of the aging brain” as Nautilus described it. This week, at Business of Software Europe, I was asked to give a talk on this topic, and created a …

I have almost 300 pages and they all have small anchor text leading to my homepage. So do you suggest removing them? Will that benefite ranking?

Internal & External Linking Risks & Rewards
Google just penalized sites for linking out to other websites!
And they've been penalizing sites for manipulative internal links, too... Is any kind of linking safe?
Yeah, it is. You've just got to be smart about both internal and external links on your pages. That's the topic of my latest Whiteboard Friday:http://bit.ly/InternalExternal

Actually, it might be an interesting experiment to find out if follow-links to excellent sources could boost one’s own site. Just like a ‘page rank kick-back’. I wonder if Google recognizes a site as being more relevant when solid sources are given as references for posts like tutorials, analyses etc.

On Page SEO in 2016

How do we do great on-page SEO in 2016?
That's the topic of my latest, new, Whiteboard Friday: http://bit.ly/OnPageSEOin2016 I've got 8 principles for success in this, slightly-longer-than-usual, but hopefully very valuable, worthwhile new video.
On-page SEO is no longer a simple matter of checking things off a list. There's more complexity to this process in 2016 than ever before, and the idea of "optimization" both includes and builds upon traditional page elements. In this Whiteboard Friday, Rand explores the eight principles you'll need for on-page SEO success going forward.

Great Content ≠ Long-Form Content

My latest Moz post is a short one: http://bit.ly/LongerIsntBetter
