If you are wondering if SEO is dead or if there is any future in your skill-set as an SEO, then this video is absolutely for you! It will show you how to benefit dramatically from big data, and how you can benefit those around you – however big or small YOU are.

This particular video is taken from my presentation at SMX Stockholm, which took place earlier this year. Big Data has become much easier to access and manipulate, and by watching this video; (which recognises how SEOs are perfectly placed to take advantage of the data), you can learn how to develop and manipulate the data to suit your needs, no matter the budget.

    This might be usefull for traders on the stock markets. Monitoring the success of online companies/Brands before the broad public becomes aware of it. Might give an adventage for some traders.

    Has anybody allready checked if there are any correlations between the rise/fall of backlinks and the development of stock prices ?

      This is most certainly one of the most intuitively obvious uses I think. Some businesses (Like Newspaper groups, TV channels etc) would probably have a much higher correlation between links and profits (though who knows whether stock prices bear any relation to profits in a world of speculation). I personally used this as a predictor in a special example, but I do feel that someone with a “stock market prediction machine” should be seriously looking at link data as a possible indicator. In the greater scheme of things, the data is available at scale at a modest price (certainly modest for speculators) and is a pretty robust data source as long as they don’t try and scrape the data and instead do it under contract.

    I’ve heard that SEO is dead dozens of time. And? Nothing…
    For almost a decade lots of voices and opinions come to us that SEO pratices are over. But I think that as long as we have search engines and people who want to make money using them in certain way we will have SEO-like solutions to artificially boost a site in SERP ;)

    BTW. nice video – i found it really interesting!

    Very interesting video. I don’t think SEO will die. It will evolve, and all we need is to adapt to the changes.
