In Case SEO Round Table Doesnt Post My Comment

I was originally trying to figure out why filed a patent on their SEO methodology and the benefit to their company for having a patented SEO practice. Thinking can they sue somebody for utilizing the same methods in SEO and if so how can they prove it was them? While the answer is simply that it would be very difficult to do so just as proving negative SEO against your website would be I can to this conclusion - In a web eco-system that is ever changing there are too many variables and changes near daily to make it worthwhile to patent an SEO practice.

Companies that do this are doing it for show and tell not for any real logical purpose. Also if we patented any of our practices that we typically do at our company "Profile Defenders" than it would open up the doors to copycats to help squash the ability for something that works to be diminished much quicker by Google.

Pioneers Get Slaughtered & Settlers Get Rich

As simple as that. Pioneers Get Slaughtered and Settlers get rich.

So if you want to be the first and creator of something don't expect to get rich. Rather you can expect to get a learning curve and give the next settler an advantage. 

So what does that mean? 

Real Life Example:
If you are and you just sold your business to Fox News Corps. Rupert Murdoch who is a media mogul genius and than your a young 20 year kid who just moved out from Cambridge to Silicon Valley does that mean you can become a settler and build a brand off of the mistakes that your competitor (pioneer) made?

Of course you can Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook is living proof.

My goal was to rank for the search term "Connected Entrepreneur" the question. I posed back in April of 2013 was can it be done? Updating and fastforwarding to July 29, 2013 the answer is yes it can and is done.
