Quote From The ROI Digital Manager


David Pocock: “A lot of people are telling me that SEO is dead, keywords are dead. That is just not the case, it’s still well and truly alive. It’s just the game has changed.” A lot has changed since 2011, when websites built in Flash ranked highly simply because they were built using Flash. Today, SEO is a lot more challenging.
