share tweet share pin it e-mail share As we begin 2014, it’s the perfect time for SEOs and marketers to reflect on the successes and failures of the previous year, and to make SEO predictions for the year ahead.

When you think of SEO, what do you actually think about? If you were going to “practice” SEO, what would you be doing? Would you be writing content? Analyzing your performance? Engaging with your audience on social media? Modern SEO is a complex, multifaceted collection of different sub-strategies, nearly all of which can function independently on their own as a way to boost brand visibility and build customer relationships. As a quick example, content marketing is a necessary strategy for SEO, but even without a deliberate SEO process, it can be valuable in terms of increasing customer engagement and building brand trust. With that being said, is modern SEO anything more than just the sum of its interconnected parts?
