Apparently Adam Audette from AudetteMedia thinks so. Thanks for the recognition, Adam! 🙂
For the last few weeks my posting rate has slowed as we prepared to launch our new product at TechCrunch40, and it was taking more than my normal 10- to 12-hour workday. Looking at the ratings on our TechCrunch page, we’re happy to report extremely positive feedback. We brought home several solid leads from potential strategic partners (Intuit and AOL Business, among others) and several VCs. Last Wednesday we were contacted by an investment bank, so it seems they too liked our product and would like to see more customers using it.
After all is said and done, however, we don’t feel that RankSense is ready to leave private beta just yet. So far it has been tested thoroughly only by our technical writer, who has been using the product since it was in alpha. He’s done a fantastic job and seen great results. Pretty soon we hope to have many more success stories to share!
I want to personally thank you all for your kind words and comments. When delivered, I am sure RankSense will provide the most value of any SEO suite out there. We truly have a bright future ahead of us, so keep checking back here and I’ll keep you updated. Thanks again!
While I don’t participate on Sphinn as much as I should, it’s an awesome site. I have already discovered some really useful blogs I was not aware of previously, and recently the author of one of them tagged me. Sebastian, like me and many of my readers, enjoys the deeply technical stuff. I highly recommend subscribing to his feed, as his topics are very entertaining and along the same lines as mine.
I am sure I would not have found Sebastian’s blog without Sphinn. With that thought in mind, let me share a few more useful blogs that Sphinn has turned me on to:
Ralph, aka Phantomaster. While I followed his blog a couple of years ago, he had stopped for awhile and it was only through Sphinn that I learned he was back. Ralph helps us see Google from a different angle—an angle they definitely don’t want us to see! Subscribe to his feed to find out what I mean.
Michael VanDeMar. I have to believe his FeedBurner counter must be broken: it says he has only 2 readers! I came across his blog when he was ranting about Rand’s post involving Aviva’s directory. He covers some really interesting and controversial stuff. Check out his blog and subscribe to his feed. Let’s move that FeedBurner counter up!
Greg Boser. I recently found his blog via a post asking Danny to include a Dumbass button! I have to say it is hard not to follow a link with such a title.Check him out (and subscribe to his feed while you’re at it!).
After trying a few different approaches, I've finally found a clear direction for this blog. Some A-list bloggers consider that starting another SEO blog is a bad idea. There are thousands of bloggers writing about SEO and the market is already saturated. It's going to be difficult to stand out.
I have to say that I disagree. While there are lots of guys blogging about SEO, many of them are just repeating the same thing: "create good content" and "attract authority links." If it is so simple and that is the only thing you needed to do, then why do we need to learn SEO in the first place?
Here are a few examples of sites with good content and relevant links that are not listed on the top 10.
