Doors Are Open for Certification (and Other Fun Things)

Doors Are Open for Certification (and Other Fun Things)

Remember all the conversations we’ve been having about the Certified Content Marketer program?

Well, the doors are open — and they’re going to be closing again on Monday, June 12. If you’d like to be featured on our list of recommended writers (and get our most advanced content strategy course), this is how you do it.

You can sign up (or learn more) at the link below — and of course, our usual no-hassle 30-day money-back guarantee applies if it’s not a perfect fit for you.

Program Details for Copyblogger’s Content Marketer Certification

Note: If you’re a member of our Authority community, make sure you’re signed in when you click the link — as an Authority member, you get special pricing. :-)

On Monday, I shared our June content and productivity prompts. Each month this year, we’re focusing on two prompts as a community, improving our creative output and our ability to get stuff done.

This month we’re practicing outreach (finding new contacts, clients, or customers) and getting the help of an imaginary friend when it’s time to do the hard stuff.

On Tuesday, Stefanie offered three hands-on ways to improve your content at the most fundamental level. Inconceivable.

And on Wednesday, I gave a quick back-of-the-envelope explanation of what the Certification program is and who it’s for. If you’re commitment-phobic, you can read that before you go to the page with all the details.

On Copyblogger FM, I shared Brian Clark’s four-step process for developing a compelling marketing idea. Because inspiration is fantastic … but even the most inspired idea can be shaped into something better.

That’s it for this week — have a great weekend! And remember — if you want to join our list of recommended writers, Certification closes on Monday.

— Sonia Simone

Chief Content Officer, Rainmaker Digital

Grace the Stage at MozCon 2017: The Door is Open for Community Speaker Pitches

Posted by ronell-smith

Some of the best talks at MozCon each year come from the community speakers—those who’re able to make a pitch to grace the stage.

This group enjoys the same privileges as the other speakers, including being able to deliver a keynote-style talk, and are always well-received by the audience.

If you’re eager to be a member of this group, step right up.

We’re now open for MozCon community speaker’s pitches.

We’d be happy to have your best effort.

(This year, we’ll have six speakers.)


The nuts & bolts:

  • Submitting is as simple as filling out the form below
  • Only submit one talk (the one you’re most passionate about)
  • Pitches must be related to online marketing & 15 minutes long
  • Submissions close Sunday, April 16th at 5pm PDT
  • All decisions are final
  • Talks must must adhere to the MozCon Code of Conduct
  • You’ll be required to be present at MozCon in Seattle

if you submit a pitch, you’ll hear back from us regardless of whether you’re accepted or denied.


Community speakers receive…

  • At least 15 minutes on the MozCon stage for a keynote-style presentation, plus 5 minutes of Q&A
  • A free ticket to MozCon. (If you already have one, we’ll either refund or transfer the ticket to someone else.)
  • Four nights of lodging covered by us at our partner hotel
  • A reimbursement for your travel (flight, train, car, etc.), up to $ 500 domestic and $ 750 international
  • A free ticket for you to give to anyone, plus a code for $ 300 off another ticket
  • An invitation for you and your significant other to join us for the speakers’ dinner.

If you’re curious about what the process look like, take a look at what Zeph Snapp wrote about his experience as a community speaker.

Long-time community member Samuel Scott, one of our fantastic community speakers at MozCon 2016!


How do you pick speakers?

The selection committee, comprised of Mozzers, reviews every pitch. Initially, we review only the topics. This helps us make sure the topics match our audience.

Later we look at the entirety of the pitch, with an eye for what the finished product would look like on stage.

Things to consider for your pitch:

  • Focus your pitch on online marketing. MozCon is all about actionable information.
  • Your pitch is for MozCon organizations, so detail what you’re talking about. We need to know the actual tactics you’ll be sharing.
  • Read this post on how to prepare for speaking, from pitching to the actual gig.
  • Review the topics already accepted to ensure there is no overlap.
  • Honor the form’s word limits. (Linking to Google Docs, for example, will result in an immediate disqualification.)
  • No one from the speaker selection committee will be able to evaluate your pitch in advance.
  • Lobbying on social media is frowned upon and won’t do you any good.
  • Link to a video of you presenting and to your SlideShare channel (or wherever we can take a look at decks you’ve created in the past)

A little weak in the knees about speaking at MozCon?

Don’t be scurred.

We’ve got your back.

Whether a speaker has hundreds of talks under her belt or is giving her first talk, we work with them to deliver a product she’lll be proud of and the audience will both love and learn from.

We provide instruction on topics and review the content in its entirety.

We encourage pitches from speakers of all backgrounds, knowledge levels, and speaking experiences.

A few additional things we help with:

  • Discuss and refine your topic
  • Assist in honing topic title and description
  • Review outlines and drafts
  • Best practices and guidance for slide decks, specifically for our stage
  • A comprehensive, step-by-step guide for show flow
  • Serve as an audience for practicing your talk
  • Review your final deck
  • Sunday night pre-MozCon tour of the stage to meet our A/V crew, see your presentation on the screens, and test the clicker
  • A 15-person dedicated crew to make your A/V outstanding
  • Whatever else we can do to make your talk outstanding

Now over to you.

If you’ve ever had a vision of making onto the MozCon stage, this is your best shot.

So, umm, shouldn’t you be typing feverishly in the Google Form above?

Good luck.

Open Site Explorer’s New Link Building Opportunities Section (and a Slight Redesign)

Posted by randfish

Why hello there! You’re looking marvelous today, you really are. And, in other good news, Open Site Explorer has a bit of a new look—and an entirely new section called “Link Opportunities” to help make some link prospecting tasks easier and more automated. Come with me and I’ll show you; it’ll be fun :-)

The new look

We know a lot of folks liked the old tab structure but we ran out of space. With this redesign we now have the flexibility to add new features and functionality simply by popping in new sections on the left sidebar menu. It’s a little bit more like Moz Analytics, too, and we figure some cohesion between our products is probably wise.

  • New side navigation with plenty of room to grow and add new features (spam scoring and analysis, for example, will be coming in Q4—but shhh… I didn’t actually ask for permission to talk about that yet. I figure begging forgiveness will work.)
  • Improved filtering that lets you slice and dice your link data more easily.
  • Notice How Fast the New OSE Is? Oh yeah, that’s the stuff :-)

You can still access the old Open Site Explorer’s design for a few more weeks, but the new features will exist only in the new version.

Introducing the new link opportunities section

Need help finding outreach targets for your link building campaign? We’re introducing three new reports that will help you build a curated list of potential targets. The new reports are available to all Moz Pro subscribers. If you’re a community member, sign up for a
Moz Pro Free Trial and you, too, can kick it with the new functionality.


Reclaim links

A filtered view of Top Pages that lets you easily export a ranked list of URLs to fix.


Unlinked mentions

Powered by FreshScape, you can use
Fresh Web Explorer queries to find mentions of a brand or site without links. Ping sources that may have talked about your brand, website, people, or products without giving you a link and you can often encourage/nudge that link into existence (along with the great SEO benefits they bring)


Link intersect

Find pages that are linking to your competitors but not you. By entering two competitive domains (they don’t have to be directly competitive; anyone you think you should be on lists with, or mentioned by the press alongside, is a good candidate), you can see pages that link to those sites but not yours. Getting creative with your targets here can reveal loads of awesome link opportunities.


This, however, is just the beginning. Be on the lookout for additional insights and opportunities as we improve our link index—we’ve just recently grown the size of Freshscape, which powers Fresh Web Explorer and two of the sections in link opportunities, so you should find lots of good stuff in there, but it can be a challenge. If you’re struggling with query formatting or getting creative around potential opportunities, let us know (in the comments or via Q&A) and we can give you some pointers or maybe find some searches that do the trick.

What about the old OSE?

We changed the workflow a bit and want to make sure you’ve got time to adjust. If you’re cranking through monthly reports or audits and want a more familiar OSE experience, you can switch to OSE Classic for a limited time. Just click on the “View in OSE Classic” link in the top right, and we’ll default to the old version.

But keep in mind new features and enhancements, like improved performance and Link Opportunities, will only be available in the new release. We’ll keep OSE Classic active until December 3rd in case you’re feeling nostalgic.

We’d love your feedback

If you’re using the new OSE and find problems, wish we’d change something, or have a particularly awesome experience, we’d love to hear from you in the comments below, in Q&A, or (especially if your issue is urgent/something broken) via our help team.
