Future Of Seo
Posted 24 May 2004 - 06:27 PM
I was just wondering 5-10 years down the line, when most fields get extremly competitive with loads of spamy sites; how will SEO mature ? Also Will it become tougher to start a new good ranking site with old sites with years of link building efforts behind them have an advantage? Or perhaps spam will increase with new sites getting links mostly through spamy techniques like adult sites do today? What do you see future of SEO as?

Although the search engine will probably only have my dozen or so sites listed...

rohgan03, I would hope that as the SE's continue to improve their processes for finding and ranking sites, that tricks and manipulations would be more easily found and eliminated.
That doesn't mean SEO isn't needed, I think it's needed even more. When the SE's can figure out an effective way to rank the best sites at or near the top, there are still criteria for what makes a site best. Most companies will still need someone to help them with that.
IMO, the "Seo"'s whose bag of tricks include keyword stuffing and link networks may not have much of a future, but that's in an ideal world... there are always people who will be looking for ways to beat the system and other people willing to pay them lots of money.

We may not even still have search engines as we know them in that time. That's like 50 years in regular time!

I am sure the criteria still exist for adult sites but the spam makes it pretty much not worth the effort to pursue regular SEO techniques. I really hope what you say is true scottie and 5-10 years down the line SEs are smart enough to throw the spamy sites out.

The entire thread just set me thinking, so I was curious about everyones point of view.

Well that's easier said then done. Who knows, some day I might really develop my own search engine but don't worry, I'll be sure to send you some hints about my then-to-be-famous algorithm.
You go, Farmernate! We really need that spam free search engine. Get to work!
