SEO also has many bad things
1.) Slow
2.) you may get no traffic when you target the wrong keywords but you will find out after you think you've got the desired ranking
3.) your host block the access of search engine block and you have no more traffic

So I don't believe one should concentrate this method and forget about email marketing or even social networks marketing

I don't think he was suggesting that SEO being your only means of generating business. While I agree it is slow. The benefits of SEO far outweigh any of the negatives presented in the second post.

Since the 75% of the internet marketing is done via the Google, remaining 25% of the internet marketing is done via the other ways. We can say that if we want to market our business we need to go for the better SERP in the Google listings. How to do that? You can do this via the SEO.

Default Good in google, good everywhere else

The way I see it is if you rank good in google you will rank good in the other 25%. With google backlinks are key. It takes some time but you can do it for free. Free is good! As time goes on seo is going to be more important than ever because the Internet us becoming more ubiquitous.

Start now and prepare for the future.

I would like to add the following things.

1. Benefit One - High ROI
Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, SEO brings you a higher Return On your Investment than any comparable form

of marketing.
2. Benefit Two - Long Term Positioning Once in place, a properly designed and optimised site should stay long

term in the rankings compared to PPC where costs and outlay are ongoing and unpredictable.
3. Benefit Three - Targeted Traffic
SEO can increase the number of visitors who are actively searching for your service or product.
4. Benefit Four - Promotion that Doesn't Sleep
Imagine having your own marketing and promotions company working exclusively just for you! One that works 24

hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days every year. That's the benefit of SEO!
5. Benefit Five - Increase Brand Visibility
SEO can give your brand a high international profile - and for a comparatively low outlay.
6. Benefit Six - Higher Sales
SEO can mean increased sales of your product or service.
7. Benefit Seven - Faster Loading Pages
Properly validated and optimised files will be smaller and leaner, meaning less server requests/overheads and

quicker download times.
8. Benefit Eight - More Cost-Effective
SEO is among the most cost-effective ways of marketing.
9. Benefit Nine - Increased Accessibility
Observing sensible optimisation procedures can make your site more accessible to all users.
10. Benefit Ten - Cross-Browser Compatibility
A properly optimised site will be as near as possible validated to high standards. This means that it works in

all browsers, meaning your site may be viewed by the greatest potential number of visitors.

11 Benefit Eleven - Navigable by the Engines
Properly optimised, all links should function correctly and all pages should be accessible to the engines,

thus making your site easy for the engines to index and correctly categorise.
