View Full Version : SEO future ?
11-04-2009, 02:55 PM
From the time when the actual difficulty stemmed from the proliferation of websites that used unethical ways of boosting their ranks like Keyword stuffing and link building, newer techniques and methodologies are being developed to prevent unethical issues regarding website promotions.
I ask you guys what is the future of search engine optimization ?

That is closely-tied to the question: "What is the future of search?"
My thoughts: as search technologies improve, the need to "optimize" (i.e. to make resources easier for search spiders to digest) will likely disappear.

The people who search on search engines will never quit and it only increases , so the search engines keep updating its algorithm so the need for SEO always Exits :) (may be in some other form)

I think that will entirely depend on search engines. Like Google for instance, it keeps on changing its algorithm to lessen manipulation of ranking which of course is needed if we want to get good relevant search results.
As the algorithms get better and better, the SERPs should become more and more relevant to the searcher's target, which would seem to reduce the need for as much SEO activity.
But in order for those more focused search engines to properly sort the millions of sites out there, site structures will have to be brought within some strict standards. That structuring may not be called SEO... perhaps it'll fall within the developer's area of responsibility, perhaps the coder's. I suspect that basic site design, developing and coding may end up being combined under one hat, to include what we know today as SEO. But I don't think it will go away.
I'm more inclined to think that a point in time will come that you won't be able to put a site up, until it has been certified as compliant to whatever architectural standards are set.

SEO is not going anywhere, if anything it is going to become more complex as search engines and search marketers battle for rankings. Ten years from now I'm sure you will be able to get a bachelor degree in search marketing and maybe a minor in SEO.

I think there will always be a need for someone to work to increase the profile of a company's website be it through gaining links from other websites or mentions on social media. These will probably always be a factor in search engine ranking. I don't think web developers will know 100% how best to make a site for search engines as there are too many factors to know (they should know how to make a website accessible but most don't) and think it will be this way for at least another 5-10 years.
There will surely be a good future for SEO, there will be awesome and great SEOs and there will always be spammers...

Language is organic and keeps changing, so the search engines need to keep updating and so do websites, which is the gap SEO'ers bridge too

I imagine the future will be bad for people with pure adsense sites and good for people who have legitimate businesses.

As long as website developer are there and search engines follow the same algo or some changing not totally reversal of today's algo future of SEO is bright..

I thing that the future of the seo will be good if it is used properly. The seo is very wide term it doesn't only mean that spamming but more then that. The demand of seo today is in a heavy numbers so I thing it will increase more. Yes,the new methods will surely be invented and it will have more rise in employment. It will be the one which will have the highest number of employment ratio in seo companies. I hope the best.

I think in order to guarantee seo ranking in the future, it will be dependent on social networking. You can't lie about a website when social communities are driving it to the top of results. You can fool a computer algorythm but not human interaction. Future SEO companies will need to know this.
Social Media can easily be manipulated. So past, present and future SEO companies do not need to know what you advised. If they want to stay in business.

2- Use of unique Meta tags.
Although Meta tags are invisible to the visitor, search engines still rely on the information to rank web pages. Try not to use the same Meta tags for all the pages. The two most important Meta tags are the "keywords" and "description" tags. Use unique tags for each web page.
The keywords meta tag are not important at all. Just to avoid any misunderstandings here.

You can find lots of information about SEO on the Internet. A lot of it is theory based. That means the information has not been tested in a real world situation. Here are some SEO techniques that have been proven to work.
I noticed that you are a beginner in SEO so I thought of sharing with you some evidence-based basics about SEO: http://www.webproworld.com/webmaster-forum/threads/77857-Ultimate-On-Page-SEO-Tips-%28by-Webnauts%29

Personally I believe there is always a future for SEO and websites that are designed and made for visitors will be the future. I see many people are chasing after SEO and doing for that. But if you build your site based on what visitors are searching for, I truly believe your site will be in the right track for the future.
