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. Likewise what SEOs do today is very different to what they did five years ago. Which begs the question, if an industry has fundamentally changed (or is “dead”), can we still call ourselves SEOs any more?

Over the past few years I have interviewed a lot of individuals for digital marketing related roles including SEO, PPC, Social, Analytics and Content. A lot of the time, interviews run pretty smoothly and you get an idea of how the interview is going to pan out right from the very start. However, there have been some occasions where I have interviewed people and some of the things they come out with are shocking!
Since Google’s most recent Panda algorithm updates they have become more adept at penalising sites where the quality and quantity of content is poor. This has been evident more so on minimalist sites that provide more rich images than content, but has also affected sites that have limited content for the user above the fold of the page.
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. A few of the team also got involved with their own jokes. Some of these are hilarious…Others, not so much; but nonetheless I’m sharing them. Feel free to use the ‘Tweet This’ button to share them too!.. Even the bad ones!
