Old SEO is finally dead

Post by Albert Wiersch » Fri Feb 03, 2017 3:50 pm

Here's an interesting piece on old SEO finally being dead... as in completely dead.

And what finally killed it off you may ask? They say artificial intelligence and natural language processing.

People who produced this sort of junk site (word salad unreadable nonsense) deserve what they've now got.

In a way the problem was caused by search engines.

(It may be a bit insulting to call it SEO though.)

This looks interesting: https://neilpatel.com/blog/master-title-tags/
Thanks. Good article. I added an emoticon to our main page's title. Let's see how long it takes to appear in Google's results. :)

This is a good page to see what emoticons are available, what they look like, and the HTML entity you can use for them:

Sorry but I don't believe SEO is dead at all. Spammy SEO is dead YES. Relevant link building and onsite SEO is key.

I have got some SEO tips for you here and even given your forum a mention http://www.lojixit.co.uk/top-10-seo-tips/

Spammy SEO is dead... Does that make you a zombie, hindsjohn?

Nah, more seriously, who cares if "old" SEO is dead or not? If one way to do it doesn't work anymore, a new one will appear within days, and people will start doing that instead.

To see the importance of organic (i.e. that may be improved by SEO) compared to adverts, here's an interesting recent article:

Organic is important, though search engine companies (or at least one of them) are gradually capturing more clicks for themselves.

Of course, why wouldn't them to try and capitalise on that as well? I mean, they're the reason why SEO exists, so they're trying to take full advantage of it...
