If you’ve been paying attention to SEO (search engine optimization) over the past few years, you’ve know doubt heard the declarations of “SEO is dead!” What you need to know is that SEO is not dead, but it has changed. SEO is no longer about stuffing your webpage with keywords, or buying backlinks on other websites. If you don’t know what that means—good. Those are old practices that will only get you in trouble with Google, the Internet police. Now, SEO is about the content you’re producing. As Douglas Karr says, “Good SEO requires exceptional content marketing…knowing who your audience is, where they are, how to attract them, and—ultimately—how to convert them.” This doesn’t mean keywords are no longer important. Instead, it means that you have to work hard to seamlessly incorporate top quality keywords into top quality content.
