NO, SEO is NOT DEAD!
It's just Beginning!
Google is the #1 destination in the world online. This means they have more traffic than they know what to do with. This also means that SEARCH is the #1 thought process online period. 80% of the Internet's Traffic starts at a Search Engine. These people are all LOOKING for SOMETHING and it's our Job's as an SEO to help them find it.
No matter what Google does they cannot provide all the information people are looking for by themselves !
You have to look deeper into the mind of the SEARCHERS !
I've been at this for 14 years and i'm still learning something new every day. You can't think like every other SEO out there. This update will just help clean our industry of the "Wannabe" SEO's and allow the "REAL" SEO's to shine.
You need to analyze a companies searchers and make sure you take care of them at every step of the way.
Prime example, for a eCommerce site, the user goes through a few phases.
Phase #1 - Research
Phase #2 - Research on a Specific BRAND
Phase #3 - Price Comparison
Phase #4 - Convenience
Phase #5 - Ease of Use / Trust
Phase #6 - Ready to BUY !
If your website is in the users face through every single phase your more than likely going to get that SALE!
This is what the SEO needs to concentrate on. My job as an SEO for my clients is to make sure my client is seen at each one of those phases!
