Can't believe this is 3 years old. Still feels very relevant today.
it's truly a timeless piece.
"evergreen' as some industry pundits would say
While I see what you're saying, I disagree. I'm sure the author didn't necessarily write this thinking that it'd be relevant forever...
I actually think it gets more relevant as SEO grows. (Author)
I still don't really think I want to be a SEO rockstar even after re-reading this post 3 years later... I just don't think i'm focused enough on just SEO... there are so many other marketing buttons to push...
Also funny to see the Sphinn button still on the top right and even better is the submission comment on Sphinn http://sphinn.com/story/123009
I chose to be a connector instead. It works on a budget :-)
Mmm...I think that to be a great SEO it's too important to have technical skills.
Probably not in all the niche, but in very competitive one you have to.
"Know your strength and specialise in it."
True for SEO, but true for any area. It's usually better to be great at one thing than ok at everything.
Yep, found that out, 3 years ago... that's why some clients call me 'a better seo/content assistant' than the one they had before. I may not be a 'rockstar', but I'm one trusty, friendly 'roadie' for the past 5 years and counting.
