    Don't count your chickens before they hatch Jill...

    As long as you can replicate good content, and imitate the actions of an audience reacting to that content (social media), SEO will never be dead. The traditional SEO, on page and link building may change, but last I checked thinks like social signals are far too easy to reproduce to say that Google has shut the door on spam/SEO.

    I think she just wanted to retire with a bang, or is extremely ignorant.

    "churn and burn" will always rank a site, but i think if you have a site that you don't want to do this, its getting harder to do...

    i had a manual penalty against my site and i got burned b/c there was this organization that checked out my links and submitted what they saw to google...i never even considered this organization would try and be the "link police" and i was so surprised to see what they were doing...

    i recently had the manual penalty removed...

    i have an authority site with a brand name in the niche i serve selling a very unique software product and i am having problems coming up with a SEO strategy that google won't find offensive...

    i don't know, i am just writing what i am thinking and letting you all see my journey in this evolution...

    A drunk man, who was driving home, collides with a building. As he is pulled from the wreckage, he says "NASCAR is dead".

    Case closed.

    To stay good at anything you have to evolve. All that's happened is google has got to know how to better interprete our current tactics.
    they still rank based on the same metrics, so we just need to change our tactics slightly.

    Total balls, amazing the amount of bullshit that crops up on that site.

    The article author (Barry Schwartz) likes to publish stuff like that from time to time just for the attention it will get.

    Anyway if the article annoys you too much, just go to the authors website and download one of the many images he has available, then pin it on your dartboard.

    how much I really love that shiet about '' gurus '' and long time working in a field :) ... That particular crap it's published on Oct 30, 2013 and states something like
    . For anyone who may concern, an easy way to simply understand they just talk craps , Tim Berners-Lee on march '89 had the proposal at CERN of what will become '' internet '' today :) ... now if you do some really simple math , I`m really interested to know WTF this particular biatch 20 years ago ?:)) c'mon ... seriously :))? for what she was doing SEO :)? It's true she looks @ mid 40's or so , that's means she had like 20yo' old when '' internet '' started , took maybe more than a decade for '' SEO '' to be really needed :)

    She is quitting only because she banked really hard, selling her advice as a consultant charging 10k$ per day.
    Now it's time to take care of the kids/husband if applicable.
