But let me qualify this…only if you are 100% dependent on Google to drive organic traffic to your blog or website.
Bing and Yahoo, still have not changed…for now.

Don’t Fret when SEO Changes Keep Coming…
As I predicted a while back in my last post 3 SEO Predictions, the ground has already started buckling.

Any business out there that relies on search to bring in sales is going to pay for traffic now that their links have fallen out of… Continue reading

I bought Market Samurai last year after reading Pat Flynn’s post then about 6 months later Pat was less than positive because MS had lost some of its BEST Keywords research features that leverage Google’s search API.
Market Samurai developers have updated the software, but now it uses Bing’s API instead.
That’s all good if you want to rank for Bing but…
…I want to rank for Google!
Organic traffic, rules!
