Search is more dynamic, competitive, and faster than ever before.Where SEOs used to focus almost exclusively on what Google and other search engines were looking for in their site structure, links, and content, digital marketing now revolves solidly around the needs and intent of consumers.This past year was perhaps the most transformative in SEO, an industry expected to top $80 billion in spending by 2020.
