    Well... I'm sure will be interesting to see different opinions about that. From your point of view do you think optimizing websites for SERPs and rank them high is HARD or EASY?

    Let's see :D

    I think it depends on the keyword/website you are optimizing

    I don't necessarily think it is hard or easy, but simply requires work and persistence.
    That being said though, once you have a working system in place, it's very easy via outsourcing.

    It's not difficult, the principles are simple, it just requires patience and persistence to give yourself a long term income.

    SEO by on its own i would say is easy. is the planning and strategy that goes into creating a successful campaign that really has the learning curve.

    anyone joe shmoe can make backlinks. it takes someone with experience to know the right places to build those links for the best results.

    It's like learning to walk or run. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy. Yet sometimes there will be bumps in the road to slow you down

    SEO is not hard if you understand how google works and tbh its not bloody hard to work out whats going to work ie: look natural to google and whats not going to look natural ie: spammy.....

    diversification is the key to offsite SEO imo that and good content not just fluff thats there to fill space for onpage SEO, give your visitors quality that will have them stick around and your golden, also take note that social media is becoming more powerful in terms of SEO and this will continue to grow for sure it makes sense when you think about it......

    learn ALL the different types of links you can build and then its really all about common sense really as in will this look natural? will this keep ppl on my site? will they come back? will ppl link to this freely on their fb twitter etc etc etc its not rocket science guys

    Seo is easy for smart people with budget.

    Since there is no complex variables and it have a short learn curve.

    It is all about choosig the right niches,and spending enough money on links and content.

    I agree with this. The principles are very straightforward, implementation can be tricky but there are tons of guides, just no guarantees.

    Edit: also cool name imperial haha looks like with both like the number 4!
