Aaron Wall on the Hyperlink Hot Seat
Story Text:

Whether he thinks so or not, Aaron Wall is one of the most well known names in the SEO community right now, he's author of the SEO Book and a frequent poster at numerous industry forums. On that basis, you might like this short interview over at the LinkBuildingBlog that TLA's Andy Hagans is manning.

On Yahoo! vs Google

I think most of search distribution is down to positioning and who can lock in more users with their other services. The search service which makes you feel like you own the service will be the one that wins in distribution. As far as quality goes I think NFFC was right on that, whoever focuses more on signs of quality than reasons to penalize will win. Adding more human interaction to the algorithms would help a ton as well.

There's also a quite fun question in there about TW and me.

I think he bottled it....

hehe...

it's quiet here lately.

nice interview

Well done, thanks for the link. The quotes about NFFC & search algorithms make me smile...I think most (if not all?) of the folks that have been reading / posting forums for a long while eventually come to the same conclusion: if you focus on quality, it makes (a lot of) things easier.

If you lose focus on the user / quality, then all you're left with is sifting through shit...a smelly, dirty, and disgusting job if there ever was one.

Who would use a search engine if all it focused on was the crap - eg, auto generated spam & robot driven link farms...

Now, if you focus on what the user wants - quality, choice, and speed - you've got something that smells altogether different.

work?

Quote of the month if you ask me.

The trouble is, it takes so much WORK to make something worthwhile :-)

Sure; but look at the rewards - and the satisfaction afterward.

I never trusted the smiles on shit-shifters who tell me they're having a great time.

For some strange reason, I always thought that was much harder work. "Where there's muck, there's money" may be true - but where's there's muck there's usually more muck. And not as much money as the shit-shifters promised.

I think that quote

needs the :-) at the end if you're going to quote it :-)

hehe thanks Gurtie, if you subtract the :-) I do look like a wanker.
