Is SEO Dead

A lot of​ the​ major search engines have been tweaking the​ way that they calculate who is​ at​ the​ top of​ the​ search result page when a​ web surfer looks something up on​ a​ search engine. Some of​ these search engines are claiming that SEO is​ dead,​ and there is​ no way to​ force yourself to​ the​ top (except working for years and having a​ quality product). For people who are not trying to​ promote a​ business or​ make a​ living off of​ the​ Internet,​ maybe the​ death of​ SEO would be a​ positive event for the​ evolution of​ the​ Internet.

If you​ don't know what SEO is,​ it's the​ manipulation of​ keywords that are used to​ find a​ website to​ make it​ appear at​ the​ top of​ the​ search page when someone searches the​ Internet. For example,​ if​ you​ search for “SEO services”,​ the​ SEO firm that is​ the​ best at​ this manipulation will have their website towards the​ top of​ the​ page,​ and the​ SEO company that isn't too good at​ what they do can be found on​ the​ 103rd page of​ the​ search results.

So why would it​ be so great if​ SEO died? the​ reason that SEO services are so terrible for the​ average web surfer is​ that they put a​ lot of​ junk on​ the​ Internet. They use a​ lot a​ keyword spamming,​ which give you​ irrelevant results for what you​ are really looking for. For example,​ if​ you​ are searching for information on​ a​ friend,​ and enter his name in​ the​ search engine,​ you​ are probably going to​ have at​ least half of​ those results that are the​ result of​ this keyword spamming. When entering a​ name in,​ some of​ the​ results will lead you​ to​ telephone books,​ some of​ the​ results will lead you​ to​ people finding companies,​ and the​ rest of​ the​ results of​ probably lead you​ to​ the​ pages that actually have your friend on​ it.

A lot of​ companies pay a​ lot of​ money to​ a​ SEO company to​ get them to​ the​ top of​ the​ search engine pages,​ while the​ majority of​ people who have websites for fun don't rely on​ any SEO services all. It's really unfortunate that people can buy their way to​ the​ top and trick consumers to​ click on​ their website. if​ SEO was dead,​ there would be very few individual who would complain.

Another benefit to​ the​ death of​ SEO is​ that a​ major SEO firm would have no incentive for putting junk on​ the​ Internet. if​ you​ have ever clicked on​ a​ page that you​ thought was exactly what you​ were searching for and then discovered that it​ was just a​ bunch of​ words,​ with absolutely no meaning,​ you​ know how frustrating SEO can be. Without search engine optimization,​ these pages wouldn't be up there,​ and you​ wouldn't get the​ false hope of​ finding exactly the​ nugget of​ information that you​ needed on​ the​ Internet,​ getting your hopes up,​ and then being terribly disappointed by it​ when you​ found out that the​ information was useless.

If SEO was dead,​ companies will lead be on​ an​ even playing field with individuals,​ and of​ those people who provided the​ best websites with the​ best information would be at​ the​ top of​ the​ search engines,​ not the​ people with the​ best engineers,​ the​ best keyword spammers and the​ most web pages. SEO probably won’t die with these changes,​ but average surfers can hope!
