Hot At Sphinn: Quitting Your SEO Career, SEOs Still Buy Links & More

sphinn-logoSEO was the hot topic last week on our sister site, Sphinn.

Rather than a single “Discussion of the Week” on Wednesday, we had two discussions going that morning — both involving SEO topics. One asked, What Would It Take For You To Quit SEO?, while the other was more technical: Discussion: Is There Value To Adding Spaces In Between Keyword Separators Both of those topics have had a handful of comments so far, and it’s not too late if you want to add one of your own.

SEO was also the topic of our most popular story on Twitter past week — more than 100 users tweeted about a survey that showed 74% of SEOs Buy (or Would Consider Buying) Links!

Read below for a look back at all of last week’s Sphinn activity.
