Too much Mars and not enough Venus in your SEO is like a recipe with all meat and no vegetables.
I think this is a good way to look at the recent mayday updates.
You need the vegetables to live, but you CAN live without any meat at all.
For some, this is SMM at its best and most fun.
In general... in reading this thread I am feeling a shift in my brain from the technical Seo side to the social interactive side.
Observing myself and others I can see it is easy to get caught in the tech side of seo. And if one is approaching the world from that vantage point one will never feel good about using SMM and likely not enjoy it.
It takes a shift in thinking, like changing a channel, to go to the other side of the brain and SMM. Social interaction is natural; empathy for other's problems and situations will go a long way in making SMM friends and acquaintances and that just happens to be great for algorithms and business.
