How SEO Tactics Have Changed And What You Should Be Doing

SEO, over the past few years has changed a lot. To get to the top of Google and other search engines all you had to just stick a lot of keywords into a post, but this wasn’t helpful for us humans when we tried to search for information, only to find sites with content that is not useful whatsoever.

Thankfully in the last 10 years all that has changed and search engines are doing a much better job of cutting spam. That has made it difficult for sites to appear at the top of search results, but so it should be. Only sites with useful information should actually appear for results. No longer is the technical knowledge as important as marketing knowledge is. Communication is more important than content distribution. Viral exposure of a single post can drive your traffic upwards. SEO is not for the search engines but for the users now.

The tactics involved in SEO are very different compared to 10 years ago. This brilliant infographic by Positionly shows us how those tactics have changed from before to now.

    Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
