Today, it’s my honor to introduce you to Kurt Frankenberg, the owner of one of my favorite blogs – ShoeString101.com.

Over the past couple of years, Kurt has made it impossible for me not to love his very hands-on actionable advice he shares on his blog, as well as his tireless tenacity and desire to help.

The fact that he actually implements and gets results from advice I publish at Traffic Generation Café have prompted me to ask him to write this post for you. And, between you and me, the flattery in the post didn’t hurt one bit.

Link building is dead.

SEO is on its last leg.

The tricks to beat and spam Google no longer work as well (dang!).

SEOMoz.com has dropped “SEO” and turned into Moz.com.

SEO agencies are bound to start closing their doors any day now.

Unless, that is, they are hired by the same clients they’ve built bad links for to remove those links.

Last updated on

Question: Why do you think people keep shouting SEO is dead?

Answer: Because they feel helpless they can’t get ranked.

It almost feels like the 1990s again. No one seems to know what to do with their Websites any more, or how to link out…

That wild, crazy link-sotted party that has been raging for ten years almost seems to be winding down. Whatever will Web marketers do now that they cannot spam Google’s index so easily any more?

  • in Google Webmaster Tools;
