    Love this post!!! Very creative way of tying the tenets of SEO to the major areas of a home.

    I remember Bob Vila! What a great way to tell the website redesign story, and clearly, I don’t have enough people on my “This Old Website” team! It’s just me :D

    I agree with everyone else. Great analogy. Yes, I’m old enough to remember Bob Vila too! sigh… Can I “steal” this to explain SEO to my clients? ;-)

    You can thank my father, cuz if not for him I’d have no idea who Bob Vila was or what the hell you were comparing this to. LOL  Great post though! I love the comparisons and the way you broke it down.

    Yes, I remember the Bob Villa shows. Totally mesmerizing as the team masterfully transformed a relic into a fine old “new’ house. Love the analogy.

    My bed education technique is also via analogies. This post is great, and I’m going to have to refer to it in a future training session.  THANK YOU!

    Thank you, Rick. I hope you had as much fun writing this post as I (we!) have had in scooping it up into our wheelbarrows…

     Jessica, I think you just insulted Bob Vila. I’m sure he’d object! :-)

    Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments! It was fun to write this post. Translating home renovation strategies and tactics loosely into an SEO site review was an interesting process. But I was sure someone was going to complain that Tom would not do one of the things I said, but instead Norm would, or someone else, or vice versa or whatever. Anyway, it was good for a smile! Thanks again!

    A great metaphor! An older website really is like an old house. It was built as good as possible whenever construction first started, but modern tools and technologies can really make it so much better!
