I am flabbergasted as to why more people in our industry aren’t utilizing Op-eds and blog posts more as Google Rankings continue to reward websites and authors who produce high-quality content regularly.

One would think that anyone employed at a PR Firm should be jumping for joy, as unique content placed properly can help rapidly move relevant search rankings – yet very few in our industry write often.  Perhaps I should be happy as it benefits my company – but it is just amazing that PR pros don’t spend more time writing as it can have major impact on search engine activity.

Am excited to go soon and will write on it undoubtedly.
