    If social is the new SEO, what else is there? What other routes can you take to ensure organic traffic from the search engines? Directories and link-building are out. What else besides Facebook and guest posting?

    It's going to be the science after social. Narrowing it down leads me to the botany cos that's where we learn about the "organic" stuffs.

    Who says social is the new SEO?

    Social is just a supplement. SEO will always be SEO.

    Linkbuilding + good content will always be king.

    Whatever used to work in fast, is still working. Just don't listen to the BS so-called gurus are throwing out of their asses.

    Social is NOT the new SEO. It is NOT SEO even. It COULD be a supplement to SEO.

    In terms of fads, sure, social is the new SEO.

    It doesn't mean that you shouldn't still be SEOing, though. You should definitely focus on backlinks still, but social media can help you do that and will appear natural to Google.
