SEOs Can't Agree on On-Page vs. Off-Page SEO Factors

Anyone reading this site for the past years or so know the typical on-page vs off-page SEO debate. One SEO school of thought is "content is king" and the other is "links are supreme." If you can spend your time on one element, on-page or off-page what would it be. If you can do both, which do you think is the most important of the two?

I ran a poll asking this question and we had a nice number of responses. Of the 359 responses, we learned that SEOs can't agree on a single answer. The available choices included On Page SEO, Off Page SEO, Both Equal and Depends.

Look at how even the results are in the pie chart.


The specific results were:

  • Off Page SEO - 28.41%
  • Depends - 26.74%
  • Both Equal - 25.07%
  • On Page SEO - 19.78%
