That is the question posted at Search Engine Watch Forums.

Is SEO on Google worth the effort anymore?

The poll can use some more responses.

Some SEOs are feed up that when they "SEO" their sites, it doesn't have enough of an impact on their Google rankings.

Anyone who associates Toolbar PR with Google's organic listings doesn't know enough about content management to do effective SEO for Google anyway. If they have the option of making a good ROI on PPC, it probably takes most people less time to learn the fundamentals. The chief problem with people's organic SEO these days is there is so much nonsense posted about links on the forums, FAQs, and tutorials now that real SEO has been buried beneath the more difficult, less efficient practice. Go PPC if you want to cut through all the B.S. and you just want to make some money.

it would be IMPOSSIBLE for SEO to NOT have an effect on Google. Pehaps SEO-ing for Competative keywords - but SEO-ing for non competative keywords will always have an effect, as long as Google continues to index Body text and Title Tags.

I wonder if people are comparing sites equally. You can't compare a 5 page site vs. a 25 page site. If they are both targeted towards personal injury in Pennsylvania, obviously the larger site will rank better on the search engines. It’s just the nature of the beast.
