The History of SEO, 1993-2010

One year ago I released the first version of our History of SEO infographic.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, a number of online advertisers have seen the cost of their Adwords expenditure increase at the same time as wasted, irrelevant clicks – some say up to 10%, as a result of Google’s SBC algorithm. SBC should not cause an advertiser any real inflation in costs and wasted clicks. It can help online advertisers identify new opportunities as well as incremental sales and enquiries.
