Thanks, Billy. I agree for big sites like Medium, and big blogs (10k-100k views/day), SEO is a key component.
But not for small, beginner blogs/sites. From what I’ve seen, in both my numbers and personally in the industry, there’s a bigger disparity between smaller sites with less clout getting far less reach, compared to the big sites who can dominate SEO.
Thanks for the insights, though. It’s a constantly evolving field, and I appreciate your expertise.
