    Hi everyone,
    I was reading a bit about SEO trends etc in 2016. I came across an article 10 web predictions for 2016 on well known website sitepoint. The writer is declaring 2016 the year of death to SEO.

    He says "There is a guaranteed solution which worked since the beginning: write good content which interests others. That’s it. You can have some impact with code optimization and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) techniques such as advertising and social media campaigns. However, the days of offering SEO as a expensive separate service have ended."
    SEMrush
    So once again it make it clear to me that CONTENT IS KING. but still we always need some sort of SEO.

    So for all of you i have a question that. What exactly SEO means to you and what is your SEO strategy for 2016?

    LOL.. . they have to be real and learn to bring some real things/services etc online instead of SEO tricks.
    and everyone around the world has to change the concept of SEO. For most of the SEO people, SEO means "do every fake thing/tricks in the name of SEO, and make it look natural"

    SEO - Search Engine Optimization is a tool for getting traffic for your site. I would say that without SEO, even you provide best products ever, no one will know and care about that, so SEO is never dead.
    There are 2 types of SEO: On-page and Off-page, nowadays Google and many other search engines value less the link that are outside your site, so link building (Or building back-link) now is less concerned and people say: CONTENT IS KING. Yes, content always is the best tool for increasing traffic and indexing by search engine. If you have great content, excellent internal links, good website's outlay then there is nothing to say. However, you cannot be perfect and be the best, so you have to take other ways to make people know about your site. Hence, social networks and social bookmarking works well with that because they are SOCIAL, there are a lot of people. You will have huge traffic if you have reasonable strategy for SMO (Social media optimization).

    It has always been a never ending death, not just for SEO but also for email marketing, internet marketing, marketing as a whole etc. etc.
    How about something new?

    SEO going to die: My answer just 'll be a big laughter !
    @lucky ali SEO can't die but can improve, also improving itself in some methodologies and techniques,

    I agreed with you at one point "CONTENT IS KING".

    I think that Google has decided to rely only on Content in 2016. For last few months, only adding
    quality content and social accounts(a little bit) are working best for SEO.
    So may be in this new year, only Content 'll work for betterment.

    SEO will never die. Content is the king. But that does not mean other factors are less important. Google place more focus on user experience. So in future user experience will get better position in SEO. So future SEO will mainly focus on content and user experience.

    SEO has always been changing, but the one constant is quality, unique content. I don't believe SEO services will ever be redundant.

    Do you believe that? It is clearly stated that SEO is no more a separate service! Undoubtedly, content is the king. Once a draft is written, any writer verifies it to grammatically correct and free from plagiarism. Additionally, we need to work on SEO along with them.

    I agree with those above who say content is king. I've always believed that. I don't think SEO is dead per se, but I think it's changing to a point where we could say that it's SEO 2.0. Just as we did with the transition of websites to 2.0. Yes, we can still use the old ways, but it's not going to have such an impact as it used to in days of yore.

    SEO is not the thing which is going to be End, because SEO is the part of the website techniques which will help you to brand the websites through the search engines. So that the users can have their eye on our business. Thanks for asking.

    Of Course SEO is going to End ! Why not.
    The way you are doing SEO is going to End completely. Fake Social Media Accounts, which used only for Link building will not work.
    Fake websites which focusing on Increasing Traffic will going to End.

    This is good News. All SEO Professionals going to be More Perfect and Better than before due to the quality of their work. Read the meaning of SEO once again. Link building and Keyword Stuffing is only going to End.
    Not an SEO Expert or Profession going to End.

    On a more serious note. I highly doubt that SEO will end. Some people claim that SEO is already dead. Their argument is that SEO is being replaced by social media campaigns. This may be taking a gash out of the SEO industry but search engines are convenient and people like convenience!!! Look at the continual success of convenient stores where a bottle of ibuprofen costs 3x as much for 1/2 the amount.
