|SEO is Shining Career Objective|
I will not give any techy definitions of SEO as there are millions available online. I will just talk about some facts which might be helpful to new generation to explore new career option of SEO. First, I would like to break the myth “SEO is a data entry job”. This is absolutely wrong. SEO is only and only smart work.
Now let me describe, What is SEO?
“SEO, Search Engine Optimization is a technique which will help to increase your/your products online presence.” Mark the words in bold. It's not about guaranteed top 10 rankings for so called “trophy Phrases” or “keywords”. If you used to read online blogs and news, Google has become smarter, so SEO is no more job of running in the rat race of getting top 10 rankings for trophy phrases.

You might reading few posts or hearing some rumors that SEO has no future and SEO is dead, but all those are just rumors. SEO is running since born of search engines and it's become necessity with cutting edge technology and neck to neck online competition. Until and unless there is scope of search engines and social media websites, SEO has bright future. Because web development or designing can be one time job with occasional maintenance, but SEO is an ongoing process which must be taken on regular, I would say on monthly basis. There are many big names overseas, who are in SEO industry, namely, “Rand Fishkin”, “Danny Sullivan”, who are contributing in SEO industry from many years. If I talk about India, Gujarat University has introduced new subject “SEO” as part of syllabus, which is showing worth of SEO as a career in its own.
So after reading this blog, I hope you get a new branch of career, which is actually as smart and progressive as traditional development. So try something out of the box. Make career in SEO. :)
