SEO is Dead. I said that well over a year ago and I still have some angry SEO folks commenting on the post every week. Google continued to squeeze our the SEO games that folks were playing to game their clients’ ranking – and many of them are still suffering the consequences today. Those of us that pulled our clients out of the fire early have done quite well. I have mixed feelings on this
Remember when folks were saying that blogging was dead? I’ve been blogging now for a decade and owe my success, my book, my company and my career to blogging.
