Have a great week!

SEO – INDUSTRY

Rand Fishkin Leaves Moz and announces a new company 
We knew this was coming, but it’s still bittersweet. Rand had stepped down as CEO of the Seattle based SEO giant MOZ last year but was still a very visible part of the company. We’re excited to see what’s up Rand’s sleeves for the future!

Have you ever wanted to save a tweet without “liking” or “re-tweeting” it? Well, now you can!

Facebook has ended it’s Explore Feed experiment
