SEO Keyword Research, SEO Myths, Tracking, Social Media & Don’t Work Anymore

You could make an argument that proper keyword research and implementation is the most important, and effective, SEO tool. That is because good keyword research…

1 – Helps you rank for the right keywords and phrases

2 – Reveals words and phrases relevant to your niche that are easy, moderately difficult and difficult to rank for

The 2017 SEO Ranking Strategies

In this guide, we’re going to go over SEO ranking practices that will still yield results for today. We’re at a time now where backlink manipulation the old way ie: using PBN networks, ‘buying’ links and link profiles’ using spamming machines like GSA Ranker, simply don’t work.

Second, if you’re looking to sell SEO as a service, no serious business that’s going to pay you a fair fee wants their content subjected to potential penalties. They’d rather work with a ‘slow and steady’ agency that does things the more ‘natural’ way, then one that promises page one rankings overnight.

So what does work? Is SEO as we know it pretty much dead? Not exactly.
