I’m seeing a growing trend of pushing people from general information requests to something more commercial, a little further down the funnel.

As long as there are places to find things, people who want to see things, and other people who want to be found, there will be SEO, form or form. What it looks like and how we do it will change. – dr Pete Meyers, 53:11

I wanted Search Engine Journal to be about search engines, not just SEO or paid search, because I believe search engines are the glue that holds the internet together. And no matter which page you are on, you must find what you are looking for. So there’s SEO and paid search for everything. – Loren Baker, 55:22
