    I agree with the above two comments. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? Better to cover all of your bases.

    PPC is no easy route either, with the big boys often willing to make a loss per customer acquisition. Listen to Doug, do everything, that's my intention this year (and that's coming from someone who benefited in this change).

    I turned off my adwords campaigns on Tuesday out of spite - but Doug is right, if you want something to succeed now you probably need to be ticking all the boxes. Will probably have to go back and renable them soon!

    Still, I think SEO is still a viable option if you can work out the right balance - far fewer competitors to pass by, and plenty of opportunity if you're the first in your niche to work out what comes next.

    A bit early to make conclusions whether SEO rules or not, potentially it might have got easier..
