MozCon 2012 was awesome. It’s going to take me at least the next few weeks to fully process all the insane stuff I learned from the speakers, but I tried to capture some of the highlights in memes. If you missed MozCon this year, or just want to relive the glory, check out MozCon in Memes. Use the links below to skip to a specific day if you want.

Why I Applied to Speak at MozCon
I applied to speak at MozCon on Monday afternoon. For those that don’t know, SEOMoz had an amazing idea to shuffle around the MozCon 2012 schedule to allow four lucky guests from the community to speak at the event. I’ll be honest: When I first read the announcement, I got more excited than a Star Wars fanboy who’d just been given a chance to go to dinner with George Lucas. I’m a shameless fan of the Moz, so I’m fine with admitting that.
After I recovered from the excitement overload, I started panicking over what I could possibly come up with as a topic to speak on. They were asking for something that was super actionable, engaging, and that hadn’t been covered in the existing schedule. Obviously, it also had to be a topic that hadn’t been beaten to death elsewhere. I spent hours thinking about it every day (and night) for the next week. Then, a few days ago, on the way home from work, it came to me. I’ll hold off on telling you what the topic is until later on in this post.
So, I wanted to explain briefly why I applied to speak at MozCon in the first place.
Yahoo Axis Trial
As of yesterday, I removed the mobile Safari browser from my iPhone’s main bar and replaced it with Yahoo Axis. Why would I ever do such a thing? Well, as an SEO specialist, it’s my job to understand new developments in search, whether that’s a change in an algorithm, how social signals are impacting search results, or what a new search app is like. I want to fully understand Yahoo Axis.
For those that don’t know, Yahoo Axis is Yahoo’s new mobile and desktop app. It’s supposed to be an enhanced tool to make search…better? Well, I’ll be completely honest: I don’t much care for Yahoo as a search resource. On a personal level, Google consistently provides me with higher quality and more relevant results.

Recommends that webmasters use meaningful URLs that are “intelligible to humans”, builds Google+ URLs as a meaningless string of numbers that no one can remember.
Good one, Google.
