  • Larry - great deck. I agree that more 'traditional' SEO tactics to get visibility (the majority of which have been destroyed by Panda) are dead. Today, creating an SEO architecture for your site is just step 1 of a longer campaign to get search engine visibility, that should include creating relevant content to engage visitors.
