As most of us know, Google has become incredibly efficient at detecting sites that use spammy link building tactics to manipulate search results. Most of these mass or automated tactics are now becoming obsolete and for good reason. Essentially, the idea that doing anything one at a time, or manually, is a waste of time is simply not true anymore. There has been a lot of talk recently within the SEO community about this monumental shift and what it means for the future of SEO, but we’ll save that discussion for another post.
SEO isn’t what it used to be, there’s no denying that. Long gone are the days of keyword stuffing and spam links unfairly boosting your search engine rankings. The fact of the matter is if you don’t stay current with Google and their frequent algorithm adjustments, you’ll be on the losing end of trying to boost your content to the top of the Search Engine Results.
