If you Google Rob’s name, you may find some bizarre photos of him. Rob’s team used to take pleasure in embarrassing him by making him wear funny costumes and later publishing these photos on social media. We all deal with embarrassing questions. So does Rob. In the video, he tells us the most confusing question he once had to answer.

Alex interviewed with Steve Rayson and talked with him about Buzzsumo's new features.

In his presentation, Steve talks about how they are working on Google Analytics integration, so that people can track their traffic and views conversion alongside social metrics. Isn’t that cool? Not so long ago, Buzzsumo added a new feature to their tool that tracks Reddit engagement data. According to Pew Research, 87% of users are under 35 years old and 63% are under 25. Thus, this platform has a relatively young audience profile. That’s why Steve recommends to spend some time choosing the main social network for your business to focus on while promoting a brand.

There are two cities that Steve calls his home. Whenever he visits those two places, he always feels welcome and he goes there very often for his beloved work. What are these cities? Watch the video to find out.

Laura Hogan, Director of Search at Ricemedia

At Brighton SEO, Laura’s presentation was focused on link building. Link building may seem like a very trivial activity, but today it is more about building relationships than spamming users with 50 links a day, which is what it was like a few years ago. Laura stressed that to be able to establish long-lasting connections, you need to be a people person and have confidence.

Besides that, Laura shared a hack of how to skyrocket her outreach campaign — by showing a picture of her two dogs to break the ice in the beginning of a conversation. Check out this video.
