The Dilbert cartoon above doesn’t speak well of the search engine optimization position. The cartoon ties people who do SEO as weasels and those that hire SEOs as an accomplice, someone who actively participates in the commission of a crime. It goes on to say the SEO will go ahead and “game the system” and “corrupt the integrity” of the industry.
This clearly does not speak well of our industry and the SEO job profession. But then again, it is just a cartoon?
The cartoon reads:
I hired a pantless weasel to do our search engine optimization.
He’ll help us game the system and corrupt the integrity of all the internet search results for our industry.
Your new job title is “accomplice.”
This is not the first Dilbert cartoon related to the industry, here are the others we covered:
