    For last 2 years we all see that google update their algorithms and many ppl quit online businesses as SEO doesn't work
    so, what's the future of SEO companies , online money makers? How do you change yourselves to continue your business

    SEO is far from being dead.

    And Social Media is just blowing up. The internet is a goldmine.

    Im ranking sites easier than ever and they are sticking. In saying that I dont bother my arse competing in high competition niches were every one of the top two pages will have spent a fortune on seo.

    But yeah SEO is getting easier imo.

    Yep, dead, it's all about Inbound Marketing now. Basically, you were SEO expert before, and now you have to improve your BS, sell yourself as a (certified) Inbound Marketer. Do everything you did before, just give it different name.
    Or, you can still sell/perform SEO and stop posting "Is SEO dead" threads. Choose

    I felt same, after last Google update rankings have gone better, just you need to stop wrong practice and will have to analyze sites (domains) before posting on them.

    Yep, SEO is dead. No need to bother anymore. Only option now is door-to-door leafleting.

    SEO means hard work - i think it always has and always will. nothing is different now.
    Google change their algorithms, then we have to work out what they have changed and how to get around it again.
    Its always going to be the same constant battle, but its never going to die - unless you think one day goggle will come up with an AI system so clever that it can 100% tell real from engineered. But i doubt that will happen.
