    Moz Analysis of Searchmetrics 2014 Ranking Report

    Some good info in this post. Nothing gets your brain juice pumping on a Monday like this! 4 cups of coffee along with this post will surely get you slamming into the week. My favorite quote, "It's not about optimizing keywords for search engines. It's about optimizing the search experience for the user."

    Searchmetrics Ranking Factors 2014: Why Quality Content Focuses on Topics, not Keywords

    Searchmetrics recently launched their yearly Ranking Factors Study that bases numbers on rank correlation and averages of top 10 SEO rankings, and this year's analysis shows that content on top-performing sites is much more holistic and less keyword-focused.
