Hey guys, this post is written by a friend who wishes to remain anonymous against my advice to publish under his own name.
I accidentally discovered something once.
There’s no better place than a car dealership if you’re feeling a bit down about yourself.
How do you deal with a breakup? A few years ago, I’d just broken up with my girlfriend and was feeling pretty shitty about myself. In between my thoughts of self pity, I decided to buy myself a car – and that’s when I made the discovery.
The dealership was nearby and I was warmly welcomed. The salesman shook my hand, offered me coffee, asked me questions about myself and for some reason, everything I said seemed to be incredibly interesting or hilarious to him.
I felt like a pretty girl at a bar.
Insight on how to explain SEO to everyone, including your Mom.
SEO is often misunderstood, and I have found that its definition varies dramatically from practitioner-to-practitioner. So, what is SEO?
I asked some experts (primarily via our /r/BigSEO AMAs) how they define SEO and how they would explain it to various people; specifically, I asked the following questions:
- How do you personally define SEO?
- How do you define SEO to your colleagues?
- How do you define SEO to the C-Suite?
- How do you define SEO to your mom?
This is a satire of the type of responses you sometimes hear from clients when working at an agency, and is a collaboration of some awesome people on Reddit, who request to remain anonymous. The views expressed in this post absolutely do not reflect a particular agency or client.
