Question:

Google representatives have often insinuated that they could be using brand mentions as an authority signal; do you think brand mentions or citations can influence rankings of a website?

Answer:

I 100% believe that citations and brand mentions can influence the rankings of a website. Is it as good as a followed link? Probably not. But, it all comes back to relevance and trust. If you are mentioned on (cited) a highly relevant site then that helps the search engine to build a picture of your business.

Do you think cloaking can be used as a White Hat SEO Technique to rank your website without getting penalised? If so, Why?

Answer:

For those of you who don't know what cloaking is, it is when you show one version of a website to a search engine and another version of a website to a user.

Question:

What is the importance of rankings today as far as you're concerned?

Answer:

I have a very direct notion towards this topic and that is, ranking and conversions are directly proportional. Higher the ranking, more the traffic will be! If your competitors are ranking higher on multiple keywords then chances are they are drawing the maximum traffic in your niche.
I will let the numbers speak here:
Being #1 gets you an average share of 32.5% of the traffic, and #2 is just 17.6% and #3 at 11.4%. And while you may be on the first page, but if you are #10 you only get a paltry 2.4%.
