After years of working in the search engine optimization industry, I can safely say that SEO is an ever-evolving industry where you, as a webmaster, need to stay on your toes and keep experimenting and polishing strategies that work.

SEO is a lucrative industry to master and there are thousands of resources online written to help you get a better understanding of the process. Well, this has its own merits and demerits as each head has its own opinion and you literally cannot understand a subject with all the mixed opinions from so many so-called experts.


It’s a known fact that Google loves to toy with our websites and it has done a great job so far in keeping us from getting close to figuring out their core algorithm. It’s like whenever we get the key, somebody (Google in this case) changes the locks.

On top of the confusion contributed by Google, there are many so-called “SEO experts” who love to spread myths and information they themselves don’t understand. It’s just like a game of Chinese whispers.

Half knowledge is always dangerous, people. Because some newbies follow those myths, their businesses are plummeting.
