FEATURED ARTICLE — September 17th, 2018
I know, it’s hard to keep up with all the changes in the SEO world. Especially if you keep reading articles by gurus who claim that ‘this small trick will help you rank instantly.’
Let me save you your money and your privacy: it won’t. Don’t give them your email address to download something with this title. And, more importantly, don’t pay for quick fixes.
