Be interesting to see this thread 2 years from now. It’ll be comical one way or another. SEO still has value today…but this is the tech industry. Today is already tomorrows news.

Wayne Gretzky had it right when he apparently said “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”
Some factors that have not changed since the Internet’s inception and which will still be in play in 5 years time:

1. People will still need to work out how to deliver their information/messages to potential clients.
2. The information delivery process will continue to become more complicated.
3. As a consequence, the amount of time, effort and money businesses waste on the process will continue to increase.
4. The web still won’t have found a remedy for its biggest problem – how do you identify ACCURATE information?
5. Most people will still fail to understand what the characteristics of the different online media means.

I’ve never liked the term SEO as this is only part of the information delivery process. Whether you call it SEO or something else, there will still be a demand for people who can assist companies to deliver their information to potenital customers in the most cost-effective way.

Oh, another prediction…
6. Finding those who can really help will get even harder.
