Sphinn has really taken off in the last few weeks & the battle for the top position of all time -or ‘greatest Sphinn’- has been a fierce one.
Rand Fishkin was at the top of the list for a while, but John Andrews, author of the blog www.Johnon.com, has succesfully toppled the moz-father, so I interviewed him to see how he managed it.

Guilty as charged maybe? As pretty much everyone involved in sphinn wants their submited content to perform well, I thought John would be a great person to interview, especially as to-date he is the only person to have broken the elusive 100 sphinn barrier which should be a challenge and inspiration to all us sphinn-ites.

John is an good SEO that jumped on an idea before anyone else did. He deserved to make it to the top of the list.

Thanks Kelvin and everyone else for the support. Sphinn is more fun every day, and best of all the challenges Sphinn faces are the very challenges we all face with our own projects and our client’s projects. As you play with Sphinn you gain current experience you can use in your own work. That’s an important aspect of success in my book... less work for more value.

"As you play with Sphinn you gain current experience you can use in your own work. That’s an important aspect of success in my book... less work for more value." Agree entirely with that. I actually found Sphinn before I found any other similar 2.0 sites e.g. Digg and so it gave me a very useful insight. I also made an elementary mistake in that I didn’t show patience for our agency’s blog to be finished, and instead placed my first story as a discussion, thus missing out on lots of potential traffic! Better to make the mistake here and get it out of the way early on. Sphunn (oh, and my vote goes to Sphinners)
