What SEO Looks Like in 2012: SEO Presentation

Sure, you could say this post is late to the party since we’re well into 2012 by now (April 3 to be exact).

But for those of you who aren’t heavily involved in the SEO industry or who don’t keep up with optimization news on a daily or weekly basis, you still might not understand the extent to which SEO has evolved over the past few years.

Last month I had the great privilege of speaking to the Atlanta Bloggers Meetup on this very topic.

If you’re interested in viewing the presentation, check it out here:  SEO presentation – Atl bloggers meetup.

Here are a few takeaways:

  • SEO is not dead. The traditional SEO from a few years ago is dead, but many people are now lumping SEO practices into terms such as inbound marketing, content marketing, or Internet Marketing.
  • SEO used to be about onpage optimization and links, which, if your keywords are very competitive, isn’t enough to cut it in 2012
  • SEO has grown beyond simply building links, writing comments and optimizing tags.
  • In 2012, a successful social marketing plan will have a significant impact on search engine rankings, traffic and online profitability.
  • SEO is not the end-all-be-all of your marketing strategy; conversion is the goal of your SEO efforts. You can’t talk about SEO without talking about conversions

Again, the full “SEO in 2012” presentation is here.
