The 5% hard part of SEO

I was just reading search engine land and read probably one of the best posts I have read in a long time. There have been some people talking about how easy 95% of SEO is and that it is up there with snake oil salesmen. Todd Friesen (aka oilman) goes into the 5% that is not easy.

On a side note I thought it was funny that Oilman is defending us “snake oil salesmen”

    Why say it’s only 5% if you consider it so important?

    The reason is that you don’t spend much time on this stuff.

    Most SEO tasks do not require a lot of time on an ongoing basis, but perhaps require some up front time.

    maybe is more than 5% but definitely not what that dude mentioned there
    Client support and understanding what still works and what doesn’t is the “fun” part of SEO. Not cloacking and buying links. Jeez..
