I recently interviewed Linkdex CEO John Straw.
John writes, “Our goal from the start was to create an application to help millions of businesses get ahead in SEO, attract and give them control of where their business appears on Google and Bing as well local search engines. Our application is designed and beta-tested by both businesses and agencies to make SEO more efficient, manageable, and cost-effective.”
We spent most of the interview discussing what I thought to be the most interesting aspects of Linkdex: the tool’s competitor and link building features.
