Google’s two conflicting goals
No structured training?
Blackhat SEO works
People get duped by so-called expert SEOs
One man shops rely too much on one man
hard to brag in SEO
free software, many broken, not integrated, not easy to use (not trying to self-promote, but this is a very real thing and a reason we started SoloSEO)
disconnect between designers and SEO (splash pages, flash)
