10 12/2011Good SEO is the result of Good Web Design. Period.
Whilst my opinions on the SEO ‘Industry’ are well known to regular readers and clients alike, every now and then an article comes along that nails itâ¦ just, nails itâ¦
I’ve featured articles from friend and sometimes collaborator Simon Foust before, particularly on the subject of SEO as he is capable of summarising things in a no-nonsense manner.
“Many SEO people will tell you that Google is a system that must be gamed. You see, there are secrets, and if you just drink the koolaid then those secrets will be revealed to you. You are lead to believe that having SEO involves a mysterious combination of ranking factors, and that doing SEO requires a special set of technical skills that are difficult to acquire.”
If you have a website, are considering building a website or are one of every other business owners or website operators we know being routinely plagued by ‘SEO specialists’, then this article is a must-read. Enjoy.
