Ok, So many people think that I do SEO to get traffic. I DONT.
I just wanted to clarify that.
What I DO is answer issues I see, such as how to optimize websites for traffic. Notice for traffic (as in people). Alot of SEOs are spending time spinning articles, highlighting key words, BOLDING and Italicizing their text: Making their web pages look like a clown.
I literally facepalm every time I see this happen…
THAT IS NOT THE PROPER WAY TO OPTIMIZE FOR TRAFFIC. All you are doing is getting Google to send some traffic your way, but THAT TRAFFIC LEAVES as soon as they see your page.
What people SHOULD be focusing on is the USER experience.
Think of SEO as SEARCHER EXPERIENCE optimization. It’s all good that you can trick Google and get a ton of traffic, but what good is that traffic to you?
Think about it. Do you want 100 people coming to your site and leaving right away? Or would you rather have 5-10 people that will actually perform an action, read an article, Click LIKE on a well thought-out article?
I will start giving my insights into this crisis soon. I’ve got to finish up the WordPress Installation Guide first, then will start tackling the issues I see in today’s SEO world.
