The problem is that most Search Engine Optimizers (SEO) try too hard to rank on search engines, they forget SEO is about the search engine users and not the search engine itself. Understanding how the search engine works, identifying the right keywords and how your target audience and competitors use them is the fundamentals of SEO, but in the end, SEO is aimed at delivering the best value to search engine users, not the search engine nor your competitors. Search engine optimizers get too involved with the technicality of search engine algorithm instead of searchers behaviors and experience with the content they’ve searched for.
Search Engine Optimizers need to stop trying to please search engines and focus on creating great and relevant contents that answer their customer’s questions and solves their challenges.
