I've spent the last two months getting caught up on the latest trends in the industry and it appears that SEO is on its way out. The current focus is on...
You can tell too. The sheer volume of tag soup being generated with today's latest Web 2.0 platforms is a clear sign that SEO IS DEAD.
The writing has been on the wall for some time. Have you prepared for the transition? What are you doing now that SEO IS DEAD?
SEO is now "depreciated".
Me? I'm probably going to have a fire sale on the 200+ SEO Domains that I own, that will be the first thing. Then I'm going to start a Blog and write one/two paragraph entries each day in hopes of it becoming popular. :)
The problem with PPC is that the more people that find out it works the thinner the margins become for all.
Mr Hard - your thinking is the only reason that I'm even considering social media as being a viable potential source of traffic.
I have been thinking about this for while and the way it seems to me is that it is great for marketers of pop acts, films things people see on recommendation or for things that people use everyday like clothes shops or supermarkets. The search engines will become the yellow pages of tomorrow - the place where you go when you want something a little unusual. (So decide where your 'product' stands and look at the best strategy for marketing that 'product')
Now taking this a little further is seems that the whole social media scene is a great place for those load mouthed egotistical bloggers who exploited link bait brilliantly to raise their profiles.
Following on from this it also appears to me that the next great affiliate explosion will be in the social media arena. Forcing your affiliate links via twitter, facebook, digg etc down everybodies throats has to be a real opportunity for those who want to really exploit the social media scene.
Once you are stuck to it the zombie really doesn't care much what you do so long as you flap your wings once and a while and make shouts out to other sites to prove you're alive. If you do too much you might fall off and have to start all over, so just hold still and keep paying that SEO guy to do whatever he does, even if it's pretty much nothing.
All attempts to kill the zombie have failed, because it's already dead.
What year did those SEO is dead "observations" start?
Who cares if SEO is (going to be) dead / or change extremely? I guess only short-sighted SEOs really care about that. And short-sighted people don't make good SEOs anyway.
All the really good SEOs, I can think of, wouldn't care too much if SEO actually dissappeared, because they'd already be on top of the new ways to get traffic/make sales on the web.
