    Thanks, Chris — great explanation, very simple to follow. I think 2013 will be the year we see SEO as a formal practice start to fade as online marketers realize that just giving Google what it wants — quality content — is much easier than trying to trick the Googlebot into boosting it rankings. Thanks again, and Happy New Year to you!

    Excellent video on the most important signals. Thank you for making and being so clear in your explanations. The hardest thing for people so totally subscribed to the “old” paradigm of buying links to understand is the importance of social interaction on SEO.

    Nicely done, Christopher. Thank you. Helped me better understand. You gotta believe that some old school SEO guys, with their crappy, unreadable, stuffed text, are running scared these days.

  • Best video explanation to date about PR, it is important to build your network organically that way you will have a loyal base.
