I have nothing against hiring appropriate professionals when they can serve you(obviously!) but in today's SE environment, I have come to doubt the ability of search engines to "deliver the goods." This has nothing to do with how good any particular SEO specialist may or may not be.

There was a time when you searched for something, that is what you got in search results. Today, that is not the case. The SEs seem to think they know better than you do what it is you actually want.

Eg. Search Google for "business coach" - you used to get a page of business coaches. Well, if you are searching for 'business coach' that's what you want, right?

That doesn't happen anymore. I just this minute searched Google for "business coach" (without quotation marks) and I did get a few business coaches from my area but none from anywhere else. I also got articles about coaching, coaching alliances, coaching networks, and links to other search engines.

If I had wanted articles, I would have searched for business coaching articles. If I had wanted groups or networks of coaches, I would have searched for them. This has nothing to do with the abilities of SEO experts. It has to do with the ability of SEs to deliver relevant results.

Today each and every field is becoming computerized, so according to that for marketing our things definitely we need SEO.

Default RE: what is SEO

Agreed with fredkmolloy and erikathomson.
If you want to stay in completion than you have to market your products and for that if you have not enough time than you should hire somebody that can do it for you.
