    Who said being natural means no effort? Of course effort must be put in, but there's a difference between using over-optimization and tricks to compensate for lack of content quality (which is what is working less and less) and actually being of great quality as a whole, in terms of what the user actually sees and cares about and which is what engines appreciate more and more in order to attract people on that basis.

    It's nothing about not taking effort.

    SEO is forever if you want your site to be on the top of the search engines you need to work for it, although it can be quite hard as long as you do it the right way you'll get y our desired result

    For me being natural means top notch content by splendid writers and good visuals enhancing the site / article. If on top you have cared about basic SEO, then you get both the reward of possible WOM + returning visitors AND search engine traffic. You can skip either good content or SEO, but then you lose a large % of possible visitors.

    Quality + SEO = Most possible traffic.

    Natural way will not succeed for sure. Without SEO, we can't make money in this competitive online world so SEO is compulsary.

    I can't agree with this completely,if you do something very well,you don't have to do SEO,if its good enough it will work its own marketing,like a service for example,you don't necessarily have to do a lot of SEO or marketing in general,it can speak for itself.But for things like niche sites,SEO is the most important thing I can think of.

    I have to figure there's a reason SEO is the most overused acronym on these forums because its important!

    You need to do a little of both:
    SEM marketing through search engines
    SEO optimize for the search engines

    The resulting traffic from SEO can bring you nice profits. But, the webmaster should also recognize that they should have a back-up plan and put some effort into marketing. So that the site is not 100% dependent search traffic.

    i believe in making site for users not Search engines.

    this will not give you good rating in the beginning but eventually it will get in the good rating.

    but ya SEO definetely add more flavors to it. but the primafocus should be on users.

    Its always good to create sites for users,but you should always do research and optimization,even if you have a fantastic site,you can literary lose thousands of dollars monthly because of SEO,you need to know how to build massive traffic,how to optimize the page so it is read by the search engines correctly,sure its a lot of work,but
    Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty
