moz.com?

Post by Holger »

How reliable is moz.com?

One of my advertisers complains that one of my (approx 30) landingpages (just a country-TLD with Info about our site in the TLD-language and a link to the main site) is flagged as spammer at moz.com

How reliable is a SEO site where the community collects points for checking if a site is a spammer?

Anyone had experience with moz.com and similar pages?

largest community of SEOs on the planet
I wonder what that means? I did not know that Search Engine Optimization had a plural.

Very frustrating that is.


How is the legal point of view.
(I am just interested, we are not running out of money just because one of our advertisers reduces the co-operation.)
Are they allowed to "miscredit" our sites in this way. Can I send them a bill for the loss? ;)
Do they have to exclude my sites if I tell them to do that ("yeah sure!")?

They have the power to destroy sites, and we dont have the power to fight this?

Well Moz or Majestic are quite helpful for quick audits but it's just scores that gives a little glimps of your website's profile...

don't waste your time worrying about this and tell your clients/advertisers not to waste their time either.

I know you can't fix this but your client's SEO dept needs to update themselves a bit and learn about how SEO etc. works in 2016

LOL, yes, I tried to explain that in a polite way.
I also sent them this:

Especially the middle column is interesting.

what that article says is that they don't have any idea whether their "spam score" is related to what google thinks or not. yep, that is what I would make my business decisions based on.



If you make your site have relevant content about whatever its subject matter is, if you have links in and out to relevant sites, then your SEO will take care of itself. google will like you etc. the more relevant content you have , the higher your site will be in a search for keywords/phrases related to your subject matter.

it is just that simple. all the rest is just crap from people trying to sell you something or scare you etc.


keep in mind that relevant content will automatically include things like keyword rich h1 tags, site descriptioins etc. the things that really matter for SEO.

Strange, I had a long email-conversation with members/support of Moz, complaining and hinting that I was suggested to send an invoice.

Now, some weeks later, one of the sites has a "Moz spamscore" of 6 instead of 9.
I have not changed anything on that particular one-page-site.

"Very strange."

Maybe their ranking algorithms were off, and then they corrected the problem?
