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.
Here is my poll:What is more important for SEO, understanding the search quality raters guidelines or the ranking algorithm updates?
Please take it so I can also share the results tomorrow morning with the SMX West crowd.
