The New SEO Process | Internet Marketing Strategy 2.0 |

From the article: "...The new SEO process is not about chasing the algorithm; it’s about fulfilling the needs of the people the algorithm serves.

It’s about creating and discovering the content that resonates with the people that a business is trying to reach and then also covering the technical bases required to get results.

It’s about understanding the connections between keywords in the mind of your target audience in order to optimize for them effectively.

And most importantly, it’s about having SEO become the driver of the marketing mix rather than the outcast. No doubt SEO will remain the esoteric “Calculus of Marketing” but it’s time to prove that we can actually do the math so to speak."
