    25 Tips From SEO Professionals

    Despite popular opinion, the death of SEO has been greatly exaggerated. However, that doesn't mean that what was effective in 2006, 2010, or even last year still works today. SEO is a rapidly changing practice ? thanks in part to the hundreds of adjustments Google makes every year to its search engine algorithm.

    Because of this, you need to stay on top of the latest industry news and take the advice of proven SEO professionals, like the following 25 tips.

    Haha, that's John Rampton aka link seller.

    BS articles, don't read this noobs, you wont learn anything

    One of the jerkoffs he is quoting in his post

    ?Don?t roll with the wrong crowd. There are lots of forums, discussion groups, and websites littered with terrible information on SEO. SEO has changed so much over the past couple years that the tactics that used to work two years ago will actually have negative impacts on your search visibility these days. Moz, Search Engine Journal, Search Engine Watch, and Search Engine Land are the best sources of information when it comes to learning about what to do (and what not to do).?

    Maybe so, for the most part.

    However, Annie Cushing has a couple of google docs (one linked in the article, another linked from inside the first) that might be of some use, or look interesting. Convenient lists of things that can be validated on BHW vs trying to come up with ones own lists by searching through BHW.

    I also like this quote, as I aim to get into Local SEO: "Seek your SEO consultant's advice early, before buying (or even deciding upon) a new product or service that impacts your online presence."

    Most is high level stuff largely aimed at driving higher value corporate traffic to their own websites - notice the backlinks? So, yes, not much itself for noobs to specifically learn in that article.

    Every time I see these types of articles, I notice that they all convolute their message by using Internet marketing jargon (e.g., in-linking, inbound marketing, etcetera) when their target audience consists of people who don't have a good understanding of Internet marketing.

    I like to look at the whole picture. They are publishing something in forbes, at least you can say that they know where to publish to get attention and some reputation (this guy has some articles at entrepreneur.com too), and I don't think their aiming to SEO "experts" with these kind of articles.

    As I learned from many people from this forum, is not always to follow what they are saying is trying to do what they are doing. Obviosly, we are not going to do everything what others are doing, but is good to read, analyze and realize if we need to learn something from others that could benefit our business or plan.

    I take advice, but I also have free will, like every person. It's just my humble opinion.

    My point was that a newbie in 2015 who is just beginning to learn about search engine optimisation or Internet marketing is less likely to understand that jargon, regardless of whether or not one of those terms was a buzzword in the previous year.

    It's like me creating a site about improving your English comprehension where the target demographic consisted of English-language learners who dropped out of high school and I only used advanced terms in my instructions (not in the lessons). My visitors would spend more time Googling the terms I used in the instructions, inevitably become frustrated with my site and then leave.

    Hey, but who knows, maybe the target demographic of that article enjoys reading content with the jargon they don't understand so that they have more terms to research later. :cool:

    You'd learn more from that article than you would from videos like this
