Nicely curated article Matt. I completely agree with you, this article gives a clear understanding about the relationship of SMO's and SEO's and the relevance within the market today. The article also talks more about the 7 stage model that is easy to comprehend and is explained in more detail. These stages are reputation, engagement,authority, leadership, thought leader social and optimization. All these stages in my opinion are relevant in the relationship between SEO's and SMO's and can help businesses within the market today.
