Best strategy ... And I apologize for coming off goonish in my post several days back Tedster ... for client SEO tactically has always been do a little bit more than your clients' competitors. Links, micros, on page, mobile it's all the same. And every client competitor vertical requires different emphasis areas from whatever you've been working on within the previous client vertical. If theyre paying enough, tests should allow predicting stuff and developing it out; with no loss except for the time spent.
Best strategy for the SEO practitioner is to realize after having succesfully crushed, killed and destroyed the last clients' competitor vertical, you still know slightly more than someone that couldn't spell SEO; an open mind is the best starting point.
And kill off 90% of the social media SEO garbage you feel compelled to still sift through. You'll have more time for productive Seo things, like testing stuff the gurus never bothered too.
