Is SEO Dead or Alive?
Google has recently updated their SEO Algorithm, and of course, this topic has sparked loads of interest in me as a website designer and business owner and many of my clients that to this day do not fully understand what SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is and what it does and how it is implemented onto or into your website and e-commerce online shop and social media profiles as well.
Below I have included a quick SEO rundown youtube video to help you understand exactly, “What is SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?” just in case you did not know what SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is.
Now, getting back to what this subject of SEO, I can say SEO will never die, SEO tactics and strategies are more often changed according to its algorithm that adapts and ranks the plethora of search engines queries submitted daily but to say that it will die or is dying is not the case, SEO will only continue to grow and refine itself.
SEO has become more sophisticated and less spammy which makes it even more, complex than it used to be in the past by using quality keywords and real quality content being created or posted onto website updates, changes and new additions into the digital realm of the internet. To better understand this I have included a Google article that points this out below.
All in all, I would have to say that learning and adhering to the rules and policies of what SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is, will benefit you in the long run, period! Quality content like, words, tags, named images, hashtags, article categories and even descriptions on videos will help as long as it pertains to your content, all this counts for a more targeted group of people searching for what you are offering and posting or creating online.
