As 2016 comes to an end, those of us who are doing our best to navigate the Google-driven world have stumbled across several SEO myths that we are going to do our best to debunk. The online marketing industry is a mover and a shaker, and with the constant ebb and flow we must always be on our toes. With phrases like “SEO is dead” being thrown around in an attempt to gain as many clicks as possible, we thought it was time to shed some light on a few online marketing myths and misunderstandings

This is how companies will stay on top of the rankings and consistently reach out to new customers and clients.
As we move into the final session of the SLC|SEM Digital Marketing Conference 2016, the level of speakers and information certainly did not disappoint. We started with a discussion on a lot of the technicalities of SEO and wrapped up with some talk about real creativity.
After Thursday’s sessions, we were all looking forward to the topics and the speakers that we’d hear on Friday. And right off the bat, they didn’t disappoint. Now that we were getting deep into the organic search topics, it did look like the audience had changed a little bit but it was just as big if not bigger.
