    What is the Number 1 key aspect of SEO?

    I work as a SEO for almost a year. I am still learning but the more experience I have the less I believe following those dozens of SEO aspects matter. I would say keywords on the tittle is the thing that matters the most, followed by keyword subtitles. From there on the content should clearly describe the title and subtitles, be original and engaging. In other words, the number 1 thing for SEO is being a good writer. Nail that and traffic will stay longer, subscribe, roam around your site and thus increasing all the metrics.

    My limited experience is just being on Hubpages gives anyone a big boost in their SEO rating with Google. I wrote a hub on this topic.

      I do agree as I write for other webpages as well. I got more than 200 articles there and 200 views with some articles hitting Google number 1. I got 20 here and reach 60 views a day, Hubpgaes does give a boost.

    I'm wondering if SEO has become irrelavant with google's, own keyword abilities.  When we started our little software business on the web in the 90s, my husband was careful about adding "metatags" behind the scenes.  Now with my website builder at godaddy, they walk you through questions about your website to "key in" on keywords.  Google works it's magic.  I get a little discouraged to note that my numbers go up in adsense for google when I work on my own website.  It's a false number to me and reflects MY visits.  I don't mind getting a few pennies just for working on my own website, but I'd love to get more traffic.  I DO notice increases when I tweet, tweet, tweet. I have several different twitter accounts.  I try to follow the give, give, give, then advertise rule on twitter so not to be viewed as a pushy salesperson.  I have a facebook writing group and get traffic when we are allowed to promote our articles once a week. All in all, it's all for pennies in my situation. I don't know of any number 1 key aspect of SEO.  I would guess it might be to write articles on topics that are trending.  Since you've been at this, I'd love to hear your advice.

      Doesn´t google take back those pennies after they figure they come from the same IP? And how do I find your Facebook page for writing? I will also become more social media active. The trick there is to be-friend an influencer. Its magic!
