Why is having an SEO strategy important?

Is this you? Master of SEO, optimization assassin, ranking royalty? Okay, sorry that was so corny, but you get the point. You can know exactly what you’re doing in on-page optimization, off-page optimization, link building, technical SEO, content creation, or any other aspect of SEO, but you still need a way to create a clear SEO strategy that you can scale.

Without clear goals and a path to achieve them, you might be constantly questioning what you’re working on:
