    Google is bringing more intense updates very often and more and more sites are affecting...it's becoming tough to rank.
    if you follow Google's guideline, it's close to impossible to rank and if you don't follow you'll get hit by their updates.

    So, what's the future for SEO or blogging?

    I think Apple is going to put a chip in all of their products that track peoples spending to send targeted advertising in the next 5 years, killing SEO and PPC.

    yeah definitely voice, AI, video and google is good its best to keep the user in its platform but what I'm saying here is the ranking part, it's already very tough to rank and (near to impossible if followed google guideline), so what will be the situation after 4-5 years.

    I know that ahrefs are about to release their own search engine based on their data. Ahrefs wants to disrupt the advertiser-publisher market by sharing profits with publishers for showing the snippet's results.

    If it goes well, maybe google will have to play along.

    A few days ago Google has announced the introduction of 2 new link attributes: rel=“sponsored” and rel=“ugc”. It's the end of the era when nofollow links were ignored so I'd say the future of SEO and/or blogging is much brighter.

    I would say schema.org structured data is the near future. For rich snippets and answers to voice queries, Google picks a lot of this info from the structured data. Those who implement it early and correct will have an advantage. However, this still means that you will have to be on the first page of that query already (so traditional SEO factors will still be important to get you there).

    Edit: Also if you noticed, in the past few months Google added new reports in the Search Console, all focused on structured data (for Products, Breadcrumbs, Video, etc.)

    I too wish if ahrefs, apple or any other gives competition to google to end its monopoly :confused:


    they didn't say that nofollow will be counted, it's still same but more precisely subcategorised, maybe bcz google's AI still unable to detect well maintained pbn

    these are all the secondary aspect, first and most important is to rank on top 5. without this nothing will help.

    yeah true but it's not easy anymore to fake google about links. although content and quality can be maintained.

    There's always someone who's in the top results. If you tanked, it means someone else rose to the top.
    You saw the update as death, others saw it as a win.

    from last year's august update, whatever niche I'm trying it ends up taken by big authority sites, pushing small sites down. rich getting richer
