    Just had a sales guy bring this over to my desk. Pretty funny.

    Love it. Reminds me of Barney doing the Lorenzo von Matterhorn from the playbook episode of How I met your mother.

    I think Scott Adams is a closeted SEO. He gets the irony of our industry.

    I sort-of disagree with this. At the end of the day, “The Goog” knows all. It knows bad content from good content. And it knows how to interpret the links you attain to drive rankings.

    We all know how important it is to get those highly relevant, authoritative links from the right sources, and that could take a great deal of online PR. It’s hard to significantly inflate websites or content due to the whole PR aspect of SEO. I’m not saying that you couldn’t boost the rankings of SOME content artificially, but it really doesn’t work that way for long-term, strategy driven SEO.

    Maybe I’m looking too far into this :/ I just don’t want the industry to suffer because of a comic.

    lol, so true, We tend to think that content on the first page is both real and coming from an unbiased source. It is not always the case.

    Actual conversation I had 2 days ago with a friend:

    Her: “I need to get a new microwave”
    Me: “What have you found so far?”
    Her: “Nothing. It’s impossible to find anything on Google – even using model names and numbers.”
    Me: “Why?”
    Her: “Too much junk everywhere because of SEO, impossible to sift through it to find real stuff and actual reviews. I’m just going to have to go to Best Buy.”

    Is this a Google problem or an SEO problem? [shrug] At the end of the day, her negative perception lies with SEO, not with Google’s SERPs.

    I think SEO is just a plot put together by Illuminati to make public think we control the internet…

    Ranking on first page of #searchengine is all about #SEO.
