Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
it does take a base of long term efforts and brand building to have a sound foundation these days. That is just running a business.
So SEO is dead
that does not explain why so many good forum sites have been vanished? They had good user response too and have been well known and established, trusted sites ( in this case i mean coding sites ).
Now a search gives my some stupid blog sites and sites that do scratch the topic but will not give an answer? Collateral damage? Or does Google really think they can compete with this scrapped and childish knowledge base?
mobile usage will rapidly become the majority of traffic
Do you happen to have ads above the fold?
"Still it needs to be more strong, I can see that most of the results are spam."
Matt Cutts reply:"...., That's because that's all there is left. We got rid of all the decent sites with Panda 1.0!
Second: Would u ever give our customers a result where only half is ok? I think not, the customer will immediatly look for an new SEO. BUt Google puts up a half backed algo and they it was tested and proofed? Never!
Traffic from Bing and Yahoo is now higher than Google traffic,
