A good web developer for your recruitment website is a huge asset to any recruitment web design project – or indeed an in-house developer can be to a recruitment company if it’s large enough. But many developers do not seem to ‘get’ SEO – probably because they don’t see the need to.
I’d liken this to a brickie not ‘getting’ what an architect does – or even trying to understand the process of architecture. A brickie could pretty easily build a house without an architect – so why would they need one?
This fascinating story on SEOMoz shows a web developer’s foray into the world of SEO – it’s a great read.
