Why People Hate SEO

"Every few months, someone seems to attack search engine optimization. SEOs are often quick to rise in defense of their profession. I’ve done that plenty myself, in the past. But a barrage of recent cold-call SEO pitches in my inbox even has me hating SEO."

-Danny Sullivan, Founding Editor of Search Engine Land and Marketing Land


As voice technology continues to improve, voice search is quickly becoming more important in mobile content discovery and site optimization.


Google is a for-profit company with two main customers: searchers and advertisers. Publishers are a distant third in the equation. Google has no mission statement to put food on the table of some third party.


By suggesting that SEO is somehow messing with the ‘level playing field,’ I feel like Google tosses the entire SEO space itself to the wolves.


In the end, it’s hard enough to keep your initiatives moving forward without the nudnik gremlin factor.
