I decided to start with my favorite and the one that can really kill your website. SEO was announced dead dozens of times. However there are reasons it can’t be true. SEO means “search engine optimization,” and while search engines are alive and popular, SEO will be prosperous. As we can see Google is very much alive. The only thing that is happening to SEO is it’s constantly changing. I like to see these changes as SEO evolution.
It’s hard to create a daily SEO task schedule that will fit every Internet marketing role. Everyday SEO jobs are different from position to position: a link builder builds links all day, emailing other webmasters, and creating and implementing ideas that result in more links. A team leader, who works with clients most of the time, creates reports. An SEO analyst investigates what competitors are doing, watches Google Analytics and analyzes tactics and strategies. However there are 3 major task types you (and me) do every day.

This means your website should have unique informative content, have a great backlink profile, be free of any black hat techniques and bring value to searchers. Searchers in their turn also want to visit websites of high quality. This means your website should be quick and beautiful; there should be no broken links and missing images. Continue Reading >>
Rel=”author” is a snippet of code which links the Google+ profile of an author to his or her created content. This tag is here to make the web less anonymous, – said Googler Matt Cutts, when they introduced the tag.
1. You should use this tag (well, we hope you already do) to make your articles more outstanding in the SERPs. Additionally, visitors may click the byline and see more of the author’s articles and follow him or her on Google+.
We have gathered the best new link building strategies and removed the old ones that may harm your rankings now that Google revised its Webmaster Guidelines. Feel free to share your favorite effective link building techniques in the comments section; we will update the post with the best of them.
1. Build a company blog.
