But still there would be less traffic , if you are trying to go one way. To increase sales through your online platform, you need more traffic on your site, and that can be achieved by doing good SEO, not just social media marketing. Infact, promotion on scial media platforms is only a part of the whole SEO process.

Totally agree with you Kent.
You can use social media just as you can SEO.

The article is saying that Google is not the only search engine on the planet and that the SEO guide does not promote SEO. I do not see how this information should be kept hidden?
RE: Matt Cutts Video from 2009
At the end of the article they also say that it is possible that they could use this information again. They totally left it open. Why, because they know they are useful and they were not committed enough to give a straight answer.
Quote”Q: Does this mean that Google will always ignore the keywords meta tag? A: It's possible that Google could use this information in the future, but it's unlikely. Google has ignored the keywords meta tag for years and currently we see no need to change that policy.”
My question is.. why are search enignes reading the tag if they are not using it?Just in case??
Google had to say that they were not using kw tags because people were stuffing keywords in to fool the search engines and it was working! This made the search engines look useless.
I personally do not listen to what others say and judge my SEO on total results. For many years we have been told to do this and don't do that and it become confusing to say the least. Google has not even finished perfecting their algorithms so how can we discount any small process?
That is totally fine if you do not agree about the tags being important today. The answer is easy, don't use them.

In fact, if our goals to do search engine optimization are to increase sales, we don't have to depend solely on search engine. We can go for social media marketing.

This. Is Absurd! In 2013 content like this should not be spread to any webmaster. "The main tag looked at by these spiders is the keywords tag." Google's Matt Cutts pointed out that Google no longer utilizes this tag as a ranking factor back in 2009 - http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html
Furthermore Bing's Duane Forrester has been very vocal about the fact that using the meta keywords tag can actually hurt you and cause your site to be flagged as spam.
Sure both crawl it, but neither one of these should be the "main tag looked at". The tags that matter are your Title and Description. These are the tags that are going to help identify your site and ultimately increase your clickthroughs. Very dissapointed to see this on Social Media Today...
