Is SEO overrated

Some of the customers are getting frustrated and asking: Is SEO overrated? It is probably like asking is recession overrated? It all depends where you live, and how good or bad your finances are. Global economic downturn has caused many companies losing their sales. And many of them are cutting down marketing budgets to increase cash flow. However without their current spending for search engine marketing, the sales numbers could have been even worse. Also search engine optimisation is still one of the best strategy to bring traffic to the website and it deos not requite big marketing budget. SEO is not overrated but in some cases it is misunderstood and poorly executed marketing strategy.

  5. Here is an old rule! If you want to be really successful in affiliate marketing, you ought to drive traffic to your website. The more visitors to the website, the higher the probability of click through. Many affiliate guides forget to mention that it is always prudent to build traffic first and then consider affiliate marketing. There is no magic potion. If there is no traffic, there are no profits. Don’t worry, if you haven’t got hordes of visitors, even a few visitors will do initially. Once these visitors start trickling down the web drain, you can place banners and advertising in appropriate places to get the results. A good affiliate marketer doesn’t care about the number of clicks but on the average number of clicks per visitor.
    Such techniques, slowly but surely brings success. And with it comes a potential for much higher rewards

  20. I don't think the concept is over rated. I think some people take it to an extreme that is ridiculous. If you design a great site and keep basic SEO concepts in mind (but design for users, not spiders) then you're on the right track IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  21. In my opinion, its actually underrated. People are not taking it seriously and don't pay sufficient attention to it.

    An opinion or overrating may be due to incompetent professionals working as SEO Expert. They do not produce enough results for the money they get from their clients, and when clients don't get return on their investments, they think that they have overrated SEO.

  22. I do agree that it depends where you are and depends on your needs as a company. There are instances or cases when SEO indeed is overrated, but there are also instances when SEO is a redeeming value for companies.

  23. In my opinion there is nothing about SEO that is more important than another, and SEO by itself is far from overrated. SEO has always produced good results and in future also it will hod this.

  24. Seo has some every-changing factors to bend towards, but the one constant has always been traffic and links.

  30. I agree. Some people just don't understand what SEO is all about and they dismiss it right away.

  31. SEO is quite expensive and not everyone uses white hat techniques. It can be a mine field when trying to find an SEO company.
    It is however an essential part of your website promotion.

  32. I dont think SEO is overrated, search engines are the best place to bring traffic from, if you dont have a big marketing budget that you can spend on online and offline advertising, SEO becomes the best choice for a webmaster, unique content is great, but without proper SEO for the website, unqiue content wont bring half of the traffic it would bring if the website is optimized.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah I don't think so.
    Seo is a hard and complicated work.
    This can't be done just by a simple things around.
    It needs an expertise and skills to do the perfect SEO.
    It just be paid for how hard the work is.

  34. Hi, this is Daniel. Your posts are short but precise conveying the exact message in clear terms it actually wants to. Who says SEO is overrated ? Rather I find that SEO is increasingly becoming a compulsory online marketing strategy of every organizations and businesses either big or small, etc. and even more than their offline marketing strategy. SEO offers a hugh scope for every type of business house to grow, establish or maintain its brand and popularity.

  38. SEO is changing, as this is it’s nature. SEO is still relevant, otherwise there would not be such a debate. It is a marketing tool that should be understood, however, it should not be the only focus of a successful marketer.
