Summary - TL;DR - (Too long and didn't read

The way people search and the technology used is changing. But contrary to popular myth:


The SEO Manager may give way to a Digital Knowledge Manager, but good skill sets will be harnessed, work will become more challenging and interesting. Embrace it and move forward.

If you are a business owner or decision maker, then take a close look at your marketing strategy and spend. Are your current partners capable of taking you and your business on this new digital journey?

The future of search is already here, it’s happening. Take stock, evaluate where you are in this knowledge management era and apply whatever action you must. Ride the wave as an early adopter rather than watching from the shore.
