Is SEO tough?

Last Update: May 20, 2017

Please join us in the debate.

Would you try to:

1. write excellent contents;

2. understand Google;

3. do both.

Would appreciate a brief explanation along with your choice.

Wealthy Affiliate rocks!

P.S. Just want to quickly add: I bet you still see websites with spun and crappy articles on page 1 and above 'great' contents. Please consider this factor while you answer.

Cheers.

I do both - I just figure I want to be the best I can be. If that means doing both then I do both.

Both . I write naturally and have a passion for it. and I recognize Google as having the power to deliver traffic to my sites!

Thanks, Mike. Just repeating the question - do you think it is fair if someone with crappy contents ranks higher either because they know the way around Google or by a sheer 'coincidence'?

I am, first and foremost, a writer, so that is what I do.
I need Google to like what I write, so I need to understand what Google likes.
That means, in order to be successful doing this, need to 'do' both!

That's great, but do you think it is fair if someone with crappy contents ranks higher because they know the way around Google?

Life is not really fair, my friend. Would I like that? NO!

Is that the way it works? YES!

I would do both, Guatam and here's why: To achieve the best SEO, I would know I would need to write the best content using great low competition long-tail keywords that are getting enough searches..

In order to incorporate the best and most SEO-effective long-tailed keywords in my great content, I would want to understand updates to Google's ever-changing algorithm as best as possible, so I can constantly tailor those keywords in the most SEO- effective way within my content.
