SEO History

The Evolution of SEO

Though there are numerous important dates in SEO history, following I feel are more significant than the others.

Date: Nov 27, 2002 – On this day Yahoo adopted a new method to display search results performed through Yahoo.com. Earlier by paying certain amount to Yahoo, a website could appear at top of the search results page. However, seeing its sinking popularity among internet users, the company was forced to back off on this strategy, and why? Users were not getting relevant results. This increased the complexity of SEO for websites and work of SEO experts.

Date: March 24, 2008 – On this day Google, the god of search engines acquired DoubleClick, a search engine marketing firm. Now one may wonder why a company like Google would enter into a niche which would upset SEO and SEM firms. The answer is obvious, Google knows its indexing secrets, and imagine a SEO firm which knows all the secrets of SEM and SEO. The combination would give rise to a SEO behemoth, which will supersede all of its competition.
