I've out to the offline business for almost 4 years, but crisis hit us pretty hard us here in eastern europe(I moved here 5 years ago. So I'm thinking about getting back to SEO. I was hopping if you guys could help me understand last trends, what major changes happened which I should studdy.
That's a tall order. I'd dig into the last few months of the forums in the areas that interest you and start reading. Set yourself a limit of how far you want to go back otherwise the amount of info could be overwhelming.
