Didn't read the article, but I thought Google and Bing had revised their search methodologies so that most SEO strategies no longer work. I would think the best way to optimize search would be to just put out excellent meaningful content.

Apologies if that is what's covered in the link.

content is the most important thing in seo and has been, well, always.

The issue is portraying that content properly for the searche engines eg not using flash, using excessive images when copy can be used, and networking with other like themed sites to develop backlinks to your sites, backlinks being the second most important indicator to search engines.

My daily work consists of lots of adding meta titles that are keyword rich, and adding copy to pages that had primarily been image rich without say, alt text to be a keyword inidcator.

It works amazingly well.

They HAVE cut back on much of the Black Hat stuff, which is what you are likely thinking of.

shady stuff is becoming increasingly less beneficial, which is what makes my firm money when companies that were using spammy tactics get hit by Google updates we set them on a more sustainable path. Phone Post

Although I agree, there are still many dishonorable (and probably illegal) tactics available. Phone Post 3.0

Lool there are tons, but my current agency doesnt do any cause we are lucky to get clients that have usually been burned on updates, and are typically only interested in the slow steady game. Phone Post

SEO is still one of the biggest ripoff opportunities on the net.  If you use wordpress or joomla or any standard platform, the SEO is built in.  But SEO companies send emails trying to get you to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on it.  What a scam.

sure, there are scammers in every industry.

there are also seo teams at every major brand in the world.

because it works.

and the wp-seo stuff that is built in is usually plugins made by Yoast, a popular seo.

I spend hundreds of hours a month configuring these properly for people.

I feel like you may have had some bad experiences either first hand or through the grapevine, I assure you, the principals of white hat seo make people a lot of money.

call it what you want, best practice web design, seo, digital marketing, its all in the same forum and it works. Phone Post

also there is literally nothing I do on a daily basis that cant be done by someone else, be it a webmaster of a small blog etc, small business owner whatever.

The reason I get paid for it is because its boring as all hell for most people to spend the time to learn it themselves. Phone Post

Fair points.  I am talking about people with their own personal sites, like me, who get emails from SEO experts who promise the world.  But out of the box SEO isn't really too bad.  Definitely not worth the crazy prices they want to charge.

BLACK HAT WARNING

Here is a tactic that the bad guys used to use for local based results.

Say I wanted higher google rankings for the term "chicago MMA gym".

One of the major indicators to google was where the locations "pin" was on Google Maps in regards to what they deemed the "center" of the city.

You could just spend a few days moving your google places pin until you figured out the location and boom, higher ranking.

was silly, people would be miles from where their pin would show on google maps, but they would take the calls and just tell the customer where there address was.


simple yet pretty effective. Phone Post

Yeah those are hilarious. I get them and then I ask them what they do, they not realizing our agency is a giant seo agency.

After the pitch I tell them what they are doing wrong and send them an invoice.

fuck those guys. Phone Post
