Who says SEO isn’t fun?… Well a few people I suppose…. But what do they know! After winning Sitevisibility’s Brighton SEO joke competition I thought I would share some of the SEO & PPC related jokes I have come up with over the last few months.

This post includes some of my favourite segments, why they’re useful and a link so that you can use them in your Google Analytics account too. Read more
The SEO industry is suffering an identity crisis. On the one hand there are people who say it’s dead, then there’s those who want to rename it “Inbound marketing” or any other offshoot.
