There’s something that’s becoming increasingly important in today’s day in age. We are living in a technology age, and the pace at which things are moving is incredible.

It’s time to talk about an interesting SEO and content issue I’m seeing more and more. Companies are obviously latching on to the need to have a blog and populate it – prolifically.
