After learning html and css I have come to a fork on my journey to become a web master. I have found an interest in both Web Programming (php and mysql) and SEO. I find both choices challenging in different ways. I believe that due to the ever advancing complexity of the interet it is really only feasible to choose one path. Could any real experts list the pros and cons of each? Ease of monetizing either path?
I believe programming involves much more of a tech person that really understands logic and coding while an seo expert is more of an analytical salesmen?
