18 Valuable SEO Quotes You Do Not Want to Miss

“Sadly, much of the content being published is simply not worth linking to. 75% of it is getting zero inbound links. So forget the ‘more is better’ approach to content if you want links. Go with quality instead. Your content will generate links only if it is truly exceptional—’remarkable,’ as Seth Godin would say.”

Conclusion

SEO is not for the faint of heart. I didn’t know much about SEO until I’ve started Gracious Quotes.

Search Engine Optimization (or SEO for short) takes tremendous work and careful planning. It is not a short term endeavor unlike other mediums such as direct response marketing or social media marketing.

I have huge respect for companies and individuals who are playing the long-term game by implementing smart SEO strategies as the focal point of their business.

It speaks volumes. This mere pivotal implementation shows that they are in for the long-haul instead of using some sneaky tactics to make quick profits.

I don’t know if this makes sense but if given a choice between a business that focuses on SEO and one that focuses on Social Media Marketing, I’ll pick the former every single time without a shadow of a doubt.

Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Social Media Marketing per se. I’ve seen a lot of marketers who are extremely successful using this medium.

However, I’d prefer to focus on SEO because it is a long-term strategy. I’d much rather build my business on a solid long-term plan than a few quick wins that don’t count much in the long run.

If you haven’t thought about utilizing SEO then I hope these quotes will inspire you to at least consider giving this strategy a fair try.
