Back in February, in light of John Mueller’s not-so-positive commentary on link building, I wrote that links and link building are not dead! Of course, the old SEO witchcraft that some still practice today has to end. However, I did insist that content-driven link earning is the way to go for a future-proof SEO strategy. We are approaching the last month of 2015 and a few recent opinion pieces from reputable SEO publications suggest that some of the shine of content marketing for SEO may have worn off.
