Move Over SEO: How Developers Can Generate You More Traffic

Move Over SEO: How Developers Can Generate You More Traffic

I’m a marketer. I know more about traffic generation than most others, and I surely know more about marketing than developers.

A Blog Isn’t a Blog, It’s a Business

The post was called, “Winning the Search Engine Marketing War.” It was 412 words long, contained no images, no external links, and it didn’t provide much value because it didn’t teach you anything. But you know what, back in 2005, the blog post was pretty darn good. See, I wasn’t competing with a lot of blogs back then….
