Is SEO Dead? Why no one is talking about SEO anymore!

by BonsaiJon on March 26, 2010

SEO is not dead and as long as there are search engines, there will be seo experts.  The reason why we don’t hear about search engine optimization anymore is because most SEO blogs you read are not run by SEO experts.  Most SEO blogs are written by wannabes who re-write what they see on other popular blogs.

SEO Bloggers are like monkeys: Monkey See Monkey Do

If I haven’t made it clear yet, most seo and make money online blogs are full of shit. I know I’ve wasted my fair share of time reading the same regurgitated crap over and over and over again.  It is when I joined StomperNet in 2008/2009 that I started to realise how much diluted the SEO content was online.

If you are reading more than 3 blogs a day, you’re wasting valuable time

Since the trend now is all about social media every blogger and their dog are writing about it.  So do you find good information to learn search engine optimization? There are a few blogs worth reading SeoMoz,  Viper Chill and Search Engine Land to name a few.

The Big Secret to learning SEO

Just start a website and start doing it. Most of you reading this post already know the basics.  Proper titles, good quality content, good quality back links and monitor your analytics.  Stop buying e-books, roll up your sleeves and start ranking for the keywords you need. If you buy training material, make sure it’s from a good resource and not some fly by night blueprint which won’t do you any good.  If you have money to spend, hire a content writer and add more content to your website then creatively start thinking on how to get more links to it.  Sounds simple right? It’s not that hard either. No blog is going to give you huge traffic secrets, not even this one.

The biggest SEO tip I’ve learned is not scientific, nor is it complicating.  It is the cycle below.

Now go out there and start ranking for something!

Thanks for sharing. I just wrote a blog on this and agree with you – social media is accessible to everyone so is becoming a big buzz word… but although seo isn’t cool as long as search engines are around it’s not going anywhere!

hey Jon.

great post, and Stompernet eh? those boys definitely know their stuff.

would you object to me republishing this here?

I would of course credit and link to you, you can even insert more links into the post into your site and we’ll leave them all intact.

& you would be in great company as only the second ever external author, the only other is Jeffrey at

no worries if not, let me know, regards from Ibiza
