Keywords Are Dead – Research for Entities & Audiences #SMX #13C

Keywords Are Dead session at SMX West

This session at SMX West 2015 “looks at the shift away from the keyword-based world, with tips and strategies for both SEOs and SEMs for thriving in a concept-driven world.”

Sullivan says that in the old days, we used to fire up the Overture keyword tool or the GoTo keyword tool and see all the words people were searching for.
