LOL: The Positive Brand of SEO!
Do you get the SEO acronym?
Even if you do, do you understand what SEO actually means?
Once you grasped the definition of SEO you probably think it sucks!
SEO has a bad rep for manifold reasons.
Yet don’t fret! I have a one size fits all solution! LOL!
SEO is a Problem – We Need a Solution
SEO is ugly. Why? I did not say this.
Don’t kill the messenger!
marketing is not SEO and can’t replace SEO.
After all clients would understand what’s going on and thus the magic of SEO would vanish.
There is only one solution to rebrand SEO in a positive manner! We need another acronym!
I have ruminated in my cave in the mountains for a few weeks and I have come up with the perfect solution!
We have to adopt an already existing acronym everybody knows.
Also it has to be a very positive one.
SEO is Dead, Long Live LOL!
No, we can’t keep SEO and just attach a “2” or something!
We need something better! LOL! Yes. LOL as in Love of Links!
What is the most important thing both in SEO and SEO 2?
In any way it’s about links, love and relationships.
Thus LOL is the one logical rebranding of SEO.
I hope many people in the LOL industry will join me and spread the gospel of LOL.
LOL can even include the black hat SEO aspect.
You just explain it differently: “Lunatics Offering Links” for example.
In any case clients that is people who don’t get SEO also don’t get LOL!
So we can sell them LOL for lots of money while findability and such crap could only bring meager revenue.
Thus from now on LOL is the new positive brand of SEO!
Why We Need LOL Instead of SEO
Still not convinced that we need to replace SEO?
Others have similar opinions. Some of them even claim that SEO is just marketing!
This way you don’t have to mention it at all anymore! Woohoo!
More experts agree on the bleak future of the SEO acronym:
- The Brand of SEO and the Trend of Inbound Marketing
- Nomenclature: The Industry Case For and Against SEO
- SEO is Just Marketing. Deal With It.
Why LOL Beats SEO?
To put it bluntly: this is just a redundant article nobody really reads.
Why would anyone even share it? Consider cute cat images though!
Even my 80+ mother shares them on the Web.
She has never seen a link in the HTML code.
Yet she send me links of cute and funny cats frequently.
So what do you think? Which discipline is more effective at attracting links?
Does conventional SEO work better than LOL? Hardly.
Add cute cat content now!
Even famous SEO blogger Matt Cutts mainly covered cats on his Google SEO blog!
