2. How has SEO evolved in the past and where it’s heading?
From day one, Search Engines are in the business of delivering the best answer to any question.
The first job of anyone willing to rank their content is to produce the best answer.
What changed is the massive amount of content and competition, which is only getting bigger and bigger.
Making it a necessity to audit the Search Engine Result Page, understand your competitive landscape, and have an honest view of how good your content is versus the competition.
Updating your old content when necessary and making sure it’s still the best, and worth sharing.
Finally, growing your authority is no longer limited to the number of backlinks or referring domains linking to your site.
Your reputation, testimonials, feedback, and social mention are more than ever powerful off-page SEO Signals and Ranking Factories.
Making Digital PR part of the SEO Journey.
