Quite often I share my ideas about content marketing vs SEO – and not everyone agrees with me — but that’s ok, I don’t have to please everyone, just the people who land on my site (and therefore the search engines become happy too).
I’ve been using SEO (search engine optimisation / optimization) for about 6 or 7 years now, and helped a lot of small business clients be found on the internet. Although I didn’t realise it at the time, I also helped my clients create Panda-Penguin-Poodle-proof sites by recommending they write pages and posts, articles, slideshows, videos and all types of content based on questions and answers relating to their business.
Question “Will SEO get my new business on Page 1 of Google?”
“Can my website be on Page 1 of Google?” – I read a forum post today where a tradesman was asking this question, and trying to work out the best way to proceed with his business SEO. One company had promised him “page 1” within 3 months, and 5 months later he is still waiting. Things have changed drastically in Google’s search results with major shake-ups happening on a regular basis – SEO still works, but there are BETTER ways to spend your time these day, to get better results. Read on to see what I suggested.
