In our fifth vlog episode I was in Seattle for Mozcon and I asked Rand Fishkin (@randfish) if I can interview him for my new vlog series. He invited me to his home/office, aka ShedToro, and despite some angry bees, I think the interview went pretty well. This is part two of a two part interview, here we discuss Google being anti-competitive, ranking studies, EAT & YMYL SEO and Microsoft Bing.

In part two, we discuss some of Google's anti-competitive behavior, if we can trust the new people at Google after folks like Matt Cutts, Amit Singhal and Brian White left Google but with Paul Haahr sticking around and bringing in Danny Sullivan to Google. We discussed the hearings in Senate and Congress and his study about how Google is taking all the clicks without letting people out of search. We even talked about Google Panda, Jason Calacanis’s Mahalo web site, Sundar Pichai and more. Finally we discussed how Microsoft Bing is doing and then I left to go back to the hotel.

It was an honor interviewing Rand. And I hope you liked it.
