    Suppose it depends if you want to be good at your job or just try to create shortcuts. If you need to game the system to rank it stands to reason that your site’s shit so there’s no point in ranking in the firstplace.

    It used to be that you could trick search engines. Now it’s about helping search engines so they can crawl and index better.

    I don’t disagree, but I was hoping for more substance – a link or something.

    If you’re a wizard with words, and have good connections for the link building, I think this can suit you well.

    But if you’re making great Web 2.0 tools, like games, it will be very challenging to rank.

    Then it will be the marketing strength that matters. Which seems counterintuitive, since most people prefer a great game without a marketing machine, long before an average game backed by growth hackers.

    This is what I say all the time.

    Follow the rules in SEO and you’ll be successful. It’s just that simple.

    Well, there are still ways to do it. But if you’re in this for the long haul, for sure you’ve gotta play by the rules. But this has been true always. I’m not sure 2021 is much different from 2011 in this regard

    Just my 2 cents tho

    …playing by the rules has always been (at least in the 10 years I’ve been doing this) always been the better solution over any sort of time frame.

    So.…yes.
