Marketing and sales professionals say creating quality content is the most effective search engine optimization (SEO) tactic, according to the results of a recent survey conducted by Ascend2.

More than half (57%) of the global professionals polled say quality content creation is one of the most effective SEO strategies employed by their company.

Other SEO efforts seen as effective include keyword research and management (47% say it is one of the most effective tactics), frequent website updating (37%), social media integration (32%), and frequent blogging (28%).
