From the blog: Don’t compare us to lawyers, don’t try to tell us we are selling snake oil, and especially – I mean especially, don’t try to tell us our industry is dead (have you heard of Google?). We have heard it all before, and to be quite honest, we are getting bored of it. Seriously figure out something else to talk about in 2010. Please? Go link bait your agenda in some other industry.

If possums taught me one thing, it's that playing dead can be a great tactic. 'Yup, we're done. No reason to come over here. Stay over there in your social media circle. We're dead. Yup. Thanks. Bye!'

Saying SEO is dead is similar to saying PPC is dead. All evidence points to the contrary.

Interesting.  Agreed, as long as there are web retailers who are having trouble reaching their audiences via traditional then SEO & PPC will remain in demand.

But perhaps as K Spence mentioned possums should be our role models-LOL

Great piece.We inherit sites all of the time that either had no SEO or lousy SEO. For all the years and conferences and info sharing, it's amazing that more people aren't making SEO inroads. I'm glad they missed the opportunity - keeps us busy. I just wish more people didn't view SEO as a one time exercise. It's far from it, although foundational elements sure pay off.

Agree wholeheartedly. I'm getting tired of all the "SEO is dead" linkbait crap that has been going around. *phew*
