The State of SEO: What’s Working Now - Neil Patel

The State of SEO: What’s Working Now - Neil Patel | Social Media - Whats new | Scoop.it

"There is no doubt that SEO has changed a lot over the last 12 months. I remember the days when SEOs, including me, focused our time and energy on boosting our rankings. We would track all of our keywords and watch them go up as we built links.

Why? Because SEO has turned into a long tail game.

 

But before I get into how you can build up your long tail traffic, here is why you should focus your SEO efforts on the long tail".

Great post.. that's what I have seen too. Longer tail searches is the one. Monitoring what people search for when they click through to your site is key too. Thanks for the insightful post.
Emily's curator insight, January 23, 2013 11:32 AM

SEO has changed tremendously throughout the last few years, as life progresses. However, it is still a very essential tool for people who are marketing online. With SEO people can guarantee that people will see their product more often online, they just have to ensure that they keep up to date with their key words, and their websites. When people go to their website first it is mostly because of SEO, however, for people to go back it is because the website has everything they need and is easy to read and understand.
