    I see some trends like...


    • Automation software becomes more user friendly (SENuke X),

    • Internet connections becomes faster and cheaper,

    • Automation software becomes faster and more efficient.

    • Automation looks more and more natural (soon more natural than manual submissions)

    • Trend goes more to authority sites, smaller sites are dying


    So in my eyes there are two szenarios:


    1. Somebody develops some captchers that can´t be solved automatically.
    2. Automation tools become better and better. And google needs to adapt

    Do you share my opinion?

    If so, what do you think is the adaption of google and of Blackhat SEO?

    Right now i just made an adaption that i don´t build microsites and driving bigger projects.
    Do you make any adaptions?

    We all need to adapt or die. Methods that worked 6 months ago don't work anymore.

    My newest thing? Making quality videos and posting them to many video sites and then post my links in the descriptions.

    Also it might help to promote your site on AOL and Yahoo answers since those always seem to rank well...

    I thing google is smart enough, so at least the low budget can't adapt. Smart software in the hands of few may be a winning option. Good software in the hands of many may last but only until G installs his drones.

    I think google will just keep adapting and we will just keep fighting back..

    I honestly don`t see why they have no begun to totally discount blog comments as links.. if you were Google wouildn`t you? I`m glad they have not.. just saying.

    Also.. I think the real boost to SEO will come when IPV6 completely rolls out worldwide. Without the pipeline through an ipv4 thing they do now. The biggest problem expense wise we all have is finding proxies to do shit with.. whether its Cl or SB or Xrumer that aren`t banned already or don`t get banned too quickly.

    If we could use IPV6.. its a much better ball game no?

    I think the real problem here is that little guys aren't likely to survive more & more. Same authority sites consume most of the traffic & the way things go they will consume pretty much all the traffic that is worth anything. Google as SE will have to rethink their rankings at some point, because ranking the same 20 sites on top 20 is going to affect Google's effectiveness & usefulness. I think the most likely scenario is Google implementing social media in their algorithm with more & more authority & devaluing most of the other types of links. This will probably also mean that nof0llow may be dropped or at least ignored for certain sites.

    Though ya, think back it used to be small independant newspapers in each town... Now it is national newspapers.
    TV used to be small independant companies... Now it is Sky....

    Internet used to be small websites, now it is monster sites run by big companies....

    What do you think about the following thoughts:


    1.) You rank for every keyword on #1 with enough budget.
    So aim from google could be making SEO a really stupid easy skill that just burns money. So companys with quality content usually have more budget for that.

    Also if visitors cost more there are more reasons to invest in content.

    So all in all it will just burn money (=time/energy).


    2.) I think the SERPs will be more static. That´s not counting for subpages ( so that you still put in "Osama dead" and you see actual subpages from newssites).

    Reason for that: If you rank 4 times as long you think twice about risking that your domain becomes indexed.

    Also it protects the big players that have on average just the better content and exist longer.


    3.) More and more people are searching for products and are willing to spend money but the amount of keywords stays the same. So i think google will invest some millions in manual valuation of domains.

    Sure that is only important for heavy keywords, but it eats a big market. And Blackhaters will all concentrated off a smaller market that they have to share under each other.

    In the future it will be like johnny mnemonic on the Internet. All you will have to do is virtually catch your customers in the dark alley way and pick pocket their wallet. Your best bet is to go watch pick pocketing videos on youtube.

    Asking about the future of SEO is like asking about the future of Marketing.

    Traditional marketing has changed so much, adapting to new routes of delivery, appealing to an increasingly sophisticated audience, finding new way to get the message noticed and selling product, even if the product is rubbish - just look at Justin Bieber, how the hell did that talentless git get so popular in such a congested market?

    SEO, like Google, will and must adapt. As SEO techniques become more sophisticated, so too will Google. As Google continues to find ways to identify Black Hat techniques, so the Black Hat community will do stuff differently.

    And then, just possibly, while Google is focused on doing all that, another SE will launch that takes a new approach (the modern day equivalent of Google coming up with PR) and the rules will all change overnight - Google will be too big to react quickly (like what happened to Microsoft) and the new upstart SE will become the one to use, gain traction and spawn a whole new generation of Black Hat tools.

    The future of SEO? Constant, changing and increasingly sophisticated. Oh, and of course much more focused on Social Media and Local Search.

    All of course just IMHO!

    The big search engines like Google are making SEO very important for making money online. The ease of use and healthy competition among SEO companies are one of the factors making SEO more affordable.

    I dont think there would be a "google killer" SE but maybe Facebook would hurt their market share. Google is a big company and they will just monopolize and eat up smaller SE startups with fresh ideas. They are good at recognizing fresh ideas. after all they DID try to buy Facebook.

    A question for the big IM players out there - for how much longer do you believe micro-niche SEO will be profitable?

    I realize I've come into the field of IM at a bit of a crunch point with the recent google updates, just wondering whether focusing all my energy on creating a bunch of micro-niches is going to be worth it for me in the end?

    Your views?

    I think there will always be a natural evolutionary arms race between google/whoever and the IMers so long as the internet is around and there is money to be made.

    If G pulls one over on the Imers the 'selection pressure' to get money is high such that it won't take long for ppl to come along with a trump in the IM field. So on and so forth.

    G is going for quality as Matt cutts pointed out.Therfore the battle now is making your websites informatible,less affiliate links going out,more pointing to authority site [you can link to mine :D]- focus on quality that's the best advice I can give ya all.
