Loyal readers of my blog will know that I don’t give out the Dumbass of the Week crown lightly. I’ve never given it to a question submitter before but felt compelled this week when I received the following question:
I am SEO and working more than 55 sites last one year, i want to know the Online Marketing Strateges like google adsence (sic) and adwards (sic) etc. I also how can i get one way links, is free one way links are good or not? like gotlinks.com, backlinkspider.com etc, Till how many keywords i use in title tag, description tag and how can i use h1, h2 in our pages. Pls give me all the information as soon as possilbe (sic).
First up, my name is Kalena. I would’ve thought that was pretty obvious from the site name, but perhaps not. I don’t expect to be called madam until I’m 96 and using a walking frame. Or being schmoozed by a door greeter in Walmart. Either way I don’t like it and never will.
Next, if you can’t even spell them correctly, I doubt you will be able to grasp the complexities of Google AdWords and Google AdSense. It takes our students up to 6 months to do it.
And as for “Pls give me all the information as soon as possilbe” – what’s up with that? Not even a triple grande white chocolate mocha donation could compensate for that crap. You didn’t even offer me a short black.
Lastly, if you’ve SEO’d over 50 sites and you still don’t know how to obtain one way links, how to use heading tags or how many keywords should go in your title and meta tags, your clients are in real trouble.
Perhaps you should start from scratch and take our Search Engine Optimization Starter Course?
I don’t think this is a language issue. I think this guy really IS Search Engine Optimization. That would explain why it’s so random and difficult to figure out. Bad rankings and odd algorithms just happen when he has a day off or a holiday.
You don’t want to piss him off. He am SEO.
Unfortunately this points out that there is so much business out there and still not enough information. If this buffoon can find 55 idiots to pay him to do – something – hard to tell what – then we have not done enough to police ourselves by educating the public more. When someone is considering hiring us or someone else I send them articles suggesting to them the questions they should be asking the SEO “expert” they don’t have a clue.
Sorry – off my horse now just had to vent – I see this all too often and then wonder why some folks are reluctant to give the Internet marketing idea another try – the right way.
Ok, now this post is simply fantastic — as is the comment above. We agree, you may not want to piss him off. You might want to do as he says and give him “ALL of the information AS SOON AS POSSIBLE”.
All your SEO are belong to us!!
Kalena I really like your site. It has great information.
After reading this post, I am Really glad I do my own SEO
and that of my son-in-law. That is scary that 50 people rely on
this type (?) of guru.
