Is the SEO industry now dead?
Or is it experiencing a new beginning?
Hardly. Confused, bewildered and baffled, but not dead.
Much of what always matters still matters. Google is just throwing some curve balls. SEO is not dead.
Content is king. It has always been written on the cards as the internet industry has evolved. People power is the only thing that counts now. No more cheating, just good content.
Good answers above me.
Certain aspects of SEO will always matter and a lot of old strategies are still effective. It's just the mass accumulation of poor/spammy backlinks that doesn't help as much anymore. Writing quality content will give visitors and Google reason to take notice.
Not by a long shot...but it seems more and more of the cowboys are leaving town so improvements are being made!
No longer is it a case of creating hundreds or thousands of junk backlinks to rank your 1 page website at the top. Im not saying it is impossible to make that happen, its definately not as easy as it once was.
SEO has changed a lot over the last year, and those who have not learnt their industry inside out will be falling behind very quickly.
If you still require an SEO but are unsure of techniques to use then it may be worth hiring an SEO company. I actually wrote a hub on the suitability of hiring an SEO company - http://ukbusiness.hubpages.com/hub/Is-A … r-Business

SEO will never die. It's just Google is now focusing more on social media these days and web 2.0, beacuse they want to promote Google plus like crazy.
