While these elements are still very important, as SEO and Content Marketing continue to merge, SEO Managers must begin to incorporate more and more marketing techniques into their strategy to stay competitive. SEO Managers are no longer just looking to make optimization suggestions for pages after they are created, they need to make sure they are optimizing content as it is being planned and developed.
