Even trainers have days when the message is not about how to sell a car or increase gross. There are plenty of things much more important than that.

Recently, Mashable posted an article about the 6 best practices of modern SEO. The article caught my attention because it's highlights the 6 things that we focus on ourselves. No more, no less -- it was kind of spooky, actually.
