There has been a lot of buzz around the word SEO since a bit of time. Ever since Matt Cutts announced that Guest Posts for SEO are dead now and Google web spam team is taking action against all those people who used thin content via guest posting to get authority to their blogs.\r\n\r\nBefore that, there was a trend on twitter and other social networking sites stating that SEO is DEAD. The fact may or may not be true. Let’s get into a little detail about the same.\r\n\r\nI have personal experience of seeing hundreds of bloggers giving up after getting hit by one of the Google Search Engine algorithms. All they had to say was,\r\n

“I had optimized my blog properly. I was building quality links, I was posting guest articles regularly, than why did I get hit”??

\r\nThis doubt has been there among a lot of other people. I have even seen blogs with over a few thousand posts getting diminished somewhere in millions of blogs. Seeing that kind of scenario, anyone would get the doubt.\r\n

  1. I do agree here! In fact, SEO is becoming more and more in demand especially that more and more are into internet/content marketing and that digital workplaces are currently on hype. I do think that as long as internet and technology is here, SEO will also not lose its spark.
