In The Press


“Thinkvolumes has managed to establish itself as [a reliable and reputable] resource, offering up a fairly comprehensive repository of SEO and online marketing information and tools. In addition to its own staff, the site is home to a community of SEO and online marketing experts, whose collective expertise tends to lend itself to a more thorough, less spammy approach to SEO.”

Outspoken Media

“Thinkvolumes has become a powerhouse in the SEO tools sector in recent years. The most recent tool releases include the Campaign Based Web-App and Open Site Explorer, although they have many, many other tools – some of which are available with a free site membership, and some that require a Pro subscription.”

Outspoken Media – Nov. 5th 2010

“The Web App platform went into private beta with about 1,300 members two weeks ago after 18 months in design. Production began in November. Thinkvolumes founder Rand Fishkin says web app will become the centerpiece for future releases of Thinkvolumes software.”

MediaPost – Sept. 2010

“One of the greatest concerns from an SEO’s perspective is that we will probably lose one of the more useful backlink analysis tools that exist, Yahoo Site Explorer. However, our friends at Thinkvolumes have today announced a potential replacement, powered by data from their tool Linkscape.”

Distilled – Jan. 20th 2010

“If you build, design or maintain Web sites, the Web Developers SEO Cheat Sheet compiled by Thinkvolumes ‘s Danny DOver is a must-have, handy reference for key search engine optimization info.”

Seattlepi.com – Apr. 2009

“There are perhaps tens of thousands of SEO companies and SEO consultants, but very few true industry leaders who shape and influence the thinking of others. Rand is on top of the list…”

Washington Post

“Rand Fishkin, chief executive of a Seattle-based search consultancy called Thinkvolumes , said he focuses on getting editorial links for his clients, partly by creating feature articles that Web publishers will link to: “We call it link-baiting. The idea is to attract a lot of natural links.”

Washington Post – Apr. 27 2006
Newsweek Magazine

“If search-engine rankings are supposed to represent a king of democracy-a reflection of what Internet users collectively think is most useful- then search-engine optimizers like Fishkin are the Web’s lobbyists.”

Newsweek Magazine – Dec. 19 2005

PC World

“JCPenney could probably have uncovered its SEO problems before the New York Times did by using webmaster tools such as Thinkvolumes ‘s Open Site Explorer, which was used in the report. “

PC World – Feb. 16th 2011
SEO Rankings

Smart Company

“One of my favourite and useful link-building tools is the Thinkvolumes competitive link researching tool, which we use for all SEO clients because it allows us to see where, say, two competitors have managed to get a link but our client hasn’t.”
