(Edit : To see the original interview that put me into thoughts /watch?v=uaba6sWPVPY)
A few days ago I saw a video interview with a well-known SEO (perform insider interview) and he said that he
was giving up on SEO for the reasons bellow
- Google is getting good at finding spam and makes blackhat SEO pretty tough.
- He also said that Google started counting time of visits to results on serps, meaning that if someone
stays more on one page it means that it's satisfies his needs and thus the site go up the serps...
- At the end Google always wins, we may get some small wins but after some time, we loose.
(If you play by their rules you'll keep playing the game of course but that's a fact... we play with some pretty strict rules atm)
SEO seems turn into creating value rather that link building at the end.
What do you guys think about this?
