Interview 5 Highlights

May 1, 2013 – Is Content Marketing the Future of SEO? Absolutely. “Everything you need for SEO comes down to content. You need great content on your website to rank for anything. So your content strategy can accomplish many goals—it can accomplish a lot of SEO goals, as well as other marketing, branding, lead generation and lead nurturing goals. It can all be accomplished with one coordinated and cohesive content marketing strategy.” –Nate Dame

Nicole Munoz, of Start Ranking Now, and Nate Dame, of SEOPerks, take an in-depth look at historic and future SEO practices with Martin van der Roest of the Examiner. Traditional link-building SEO practices of just a few years ago have given way to a more balanced approach, pairing high-quality content with organic link building. Google’s Panda and Penguin algorithms have greatly impacted the way search engines rank today by looking at the entire user experience instead of merely keywords. Writing valuable content for your customers and not just packing in keywords for the search engines will improve your overall search rank, increasing traffic to your website and generating more leads and sales.

  • Everything you need for SEO comes down to content
  • Today’s SEO is pairing a high-quality site with active link building
