There are some great tips in this article on what works and what doesn’t in modern day SEO. Take-aways from this article include:


  • Concentrate on quality backlinks rather than quantity. Try to get more backlinks that are relevant to your business from high authority sites.
  • Think more contextually about your SEO copywriting. You no longer have to stuff a page with exact key phrases as Google will determine the context of the page from the copy as a whole.
  • Build up a good following on social platforms and get them to help share your content.
  • Focus on traffic from long-tail key phrases, which is relatively easy to implement with a solid content strategy.
  • You don’t need a lot of pages to rank well. Concentrate on the quality of the pages you do have.


Please take the time to read the full article and digest the information. SEO has changed and it’s important to keep up with what’s working now.
