(27:59) Wrap Up
"Most people think that they need a website, but you don't, if you're not going to rank it, what's the point? --- It's words that sell. And those words need to get in front of people's faces. If you spend 30 grand on a website and no one sees it, what's the point?"

"What we're trying to do is build up our clients' authorities to get them trusted by Google, so that Google will reward them with lots of traffic and customers."
(5:05) - Kris Reid
"That's what Google's looking for, to build up your trust... If it's some tiny little new site, that's not worth anything. If it's a big, strong authority site like the FBI or a university, that's a big, strong credible backlink… that's the secret of Google."
