While I believe that most of the information he provides still work to a certain degree, the essence is that they won’t work alone, meaning, that SEO contrary to some people think is not a “one single” tactic. Here are some of the most talked about SEO tactics that Duane mentions.

The slide is about a little over a month old, but in case you’ve missed it (I did), take a look at these tips as you may just learn a thing or two. Do you have anything to add?

“As people search for things on Google, advertisers target those searches, or queries, using keywords. The relationship between queries and keywords is at the heart of search advertising with AdWords”, says Matt Lawson, Director of Performance Ads Marketing at Google.

Glad to hear that quality content weighs heavier than quantity, as I focus my efforts on quality. Found that over time, quantity has to take a back seat to keep quality consistent. Also glad to know that visuals have great relevance to increasing traffic.
