My latest blog post, The Science of Correlation Studies. It covers what a correlation is, how to calculate it, how I'm scaling correlation over a large dataset and weaknesses with the model.

Erm...

You haven't "proven" that KD has no bearing.

You've merely shown that in a singular view, as a flat value, with no relational or influence values - it appears to have little bearing.
Not the same thing.

I hoenstly don't get it.
You're clearly very smart.
You belabour the point of Correlation vs Causation.
Then you go and using hyperbole wording and assumptive phrases and ruin what is otherwise a standup job.

So much more to it than just "links" ... and so many in the SEO field dont really pay attention to detail.
A handful of good, solid links from trusted, relevant and popular sites will do more than 1k spammy rapid drop links.

(More importantly - they will last the distance, and you don't have to run around like a headless penguin years later trying to clear them up :D)

Just published my first correlation data findings today.

Correlations for domain TLDs, exact match domains, hyphenated exact matches and other domain related factors.
