Tomorrow at SMX West I am moderating a panel called Machine vs. Man: What Really Matters For SEO Success. One of the panelists is Frédéric Dubut from Bing and he posted a poll asking what is more important for SEOs, understanding the search quality raters guidelines or the ranking algorithm updates?
He only had 21 responses, so I wanted to get more responses and I made my own poll below. His poll showed 62% felt the guidelines were more important for SEOs whereas the rest felt algorithm updates were more important.
Quick poll for our #SMX session “Machine vs. Man” – what is more important for #SEO, understanding the search quality raters guidelines or the ranking algorithm updates? Bonus points if you reply with your argument 😃 @Nagu_Rangan and I will share @Bing‘s point of view next week!

Please take it so I can also share the results tomorrow morning with the SMX West crowd.
