Yes. Yes it did (sort of). In fact, you could skip this post and sign up free for 30 days right here (though there's more cool details I'll explain below).
Last week, in the midst of an extremely busy day, the team at SEOmoz huddled around a bowl of green jelly beans to share something even more magical than tiny green candy - our numbers. We recently passed 7,500 PRO members and January was our biggest traffic month ever, with nearly 1 million visits to SEOmoz + Open Site Explorer. The web app alone is tracking nearly 20,000 campaigns (sites), 500K keywords and 60mil+ pages each week. Linkscape just had its three fastest index updates, meaning the data in OSE, the mozBar and the web app are the freshest and most accurate ever.
January has been good to us, so it's time we return the favor. That's why, starting today, we're making SEOmoz PRO membership 100% [replacer_a] for the first 30 days.
But... That's not all. For the first 10,000 folks who take the free trial, we're entering you to win PRO membership free for life:
If you're already PRO (or sign up before 12am midnight tonight), you're already entered to win. If not, you can try it right now for free, so I'd suggest doing that :-) You can .
The free trial includes every feature inside PRO, including:
#1: Track Campaigns in the PRO Web App
The new competitive link analysis tab in the web app
Create a campaign for the sites you care about and every week, the web app tracks:
- Keyword rankings for hundreds of keywords on the engine of your choice (including ccTLD extensions like Google.de or Google.com.br)
- Up to 10,000+ pages on your site, which it crawls every 7 days to report errors, missed opportunities and friendly notifications (like rel=canonicals or 301 redirects)
- Key search traffic metrics (via integration w/ Google Analytics)
- Link data for you and up to 3 competitors (as in the screenshot above)
- On-page recommendations for any page(s) ranking for a keyword that might have an opportunity to perform better
The web app is still in beta, so new features launch every few weeks and we're always open for feedback about what you want to see included.
#2: Unlimited Access to Open Site Explorer
Our link analysis tool, get all the details of the contest here, has become one of the most popular Open Site Explorer
tools on the web and PRO is the only way to get unlimited access to metrics, reports, link lists and CSV exports.
There have been some great posts on how SEOs use and apply the data in OSE including - list (from Fabio Ricotta), An Inside Look at Competitors' Backlinks (from Chris Moore) and How We Used Open Site Explorer at Microsoft (from Richard Baxter).
#3: Use of the Entire SEOmoz Toolkit
Although we're constantly upgrading and migrating features into the web app, we've still got an impressive collection of HTTP Status Reports w/ OSE, VLookup and Xenu for dozens of useful toolse.
, the powerful new On-Page Optimizer, our classic Keyword Difficulty Tool and many more.
#4: Ask Your Burning Questions to the Q+A Experts
Sometimes you have all the answers, but you still want to double-check. SEOmoz's team of experts has years of consulting experience and we love to share out knowledge and our advice with PRO members.
In addition, there's 4 years worth of questions and replies to search through and find an answer instantly.
#5: Exclusive Invites to PRO-only Training Webinars (and the webinar archive)
Every month, we give educational, 90 minute webinars covering topics ranging from DavidBlg to The Cutting Edge of Organic Marketing to Local SEO.
A slide from December's webinar on Cutting Edge of Organic Marketing
I personally make and deliver many of these, and the feedback is always tremendous. Plus, the slides are always available for download and use, meaning you can re-use my cheesy comics to help present your ideas and plans internally (and educate your team, too).
OK, technically there's lots more, but you've got the idea - PRO membership is Advanced, Competitive Link Building. And, heck, you might win a lifetime of free PRO, just for signing up.
