[edit reason] added video title and made link clickable [/edit]
Nowhere in that clip does he mention on page / website metrics - such things as how long a user spends on a page, how many pages per session the user views and what happens when they exit the website.
The very absence of any mention at all (absolutely none at all) tells you one thing, MC is not telling the whole truth. On page /site metrics matter a massive amount, they tell G so much that they never, ever could ignore them but MC still prattles on about links as if (exceptional cases excluded) they were the Holy Grail.
On average a user spends 5 minutes on a page and per session, they view 10 pages. Let's also assume that the average page / site metrics for similar pages is a tenth of that.
