The Long History of Search Engine Optimization (Infographic)

SEO

One of my favorite activities when searching for quality content on the internet is to go to Pinterest to find videos, images, and infographics worth sharing. One in particular stood out this morning and I explored this infographic heartily. Once done, I went back to see who to attribute; lo and behold, it was Driving Sales' new Director of Product Strategy Eric Miltsch who popped it up on my Pinterest stream!

In this graphic, the timeline, trends, terms, and tidbits come to life and show us where the industry has been. Knowing where we came from can help guide our future and as the automotive SEO world continues to grow and advance, having this historical understanding can be an amazing reference.

Hey JD - thx for sharing with everyone here as well. The more we know about Google now the better we can understand how their new directions with regards to personalized results, G+ integration and mobile. Everyone, take note of how JD said he's using Pinterest - it's his curation & inspiration tool. I remember browsing hundreds of pages to find just one quality piece of content to jump start my creative juices - Pinterest has helped reduce that process down to a few minutes for me.

Thanks Eric. Pinterest used right can be a "viral filter" for search. Following the right people can make a world of difference (which is why I follow Eric) because you're no longer alone in finding vetted content for inspiration, blog posts, infographics, and videos.
