Now Shoemoney is a friend of mine, but regarding his post SEO Has No Future today, I am forced to disagree with him.

Shoe and Calcanis are just marketers playing the same contrarian game

True, but Shoe is the Clarence Thomas to Calacanis’ Scalia.  All Shoe can do is copy things after Calacanis says them.

Great article, all valid points.... but ultimately its in response to Shoemoney doing his usual.’No future in current SEO’ is technically correct as SEO has to develop alongside search algos.I’m amazed people still, every single time seem to take offence and argue against shit like this.I understand SEO’s are passionate people, but come on.... somebody change the record.

95% of whats always worked for SEO will continue but its that other 5% that really sets you apart, and in certain organizations that 5% can make big big differences.

I feel like everyone’s just sitting until someone comes along and says "SEO stinks!" again.  Then we have responses springing up feverishly from all corners of the blogosphere.  Meanwhile, the instigator enjoys all the fresh new links to his/her website. Here’s a thought:  if we’re all so secure in our belief that SEO is, in fact, going nowhere, and that we’ve all got a great amount of job security based on the demand for our services, why do we feel the need to respond so passionately to claims that ought to be just baseless and laughable?  Rather than play in to the chaos and help make a half-assed blog post into the center of attention, wouldn’t we do better to just ignore it and go on with our work/research?  Arguing publicly for your own value doesn’t scream of self-confidence.

Whenever I read SEO’s talking about web standards and markup (your 2nd paragraph) I always feel obligated to test their pages.Oops - Failed validation, 111 Errors
