What SEO terms get you all flustered?
This is a great thread. Over at WebmasterWorld members are attempting to pinpoint and define the industry’s most commonly misunderstood and misused words. So far making the lists are MFA sites, thin sites, the differences between a URL rewrite and a URL redirect, spidering vs. indexing, site vs. Web page, and lots more. If you haven’t read through it, it’s worth a read. It’s basically a giant complain-a-thon over there. Who doesn’t love those?
I’ll ask you: What industry terms make you want to throw a chair through your office window? I not embarrassed to admit that I can neither spell, nor pronounce, canonicalization. But that’s okay, because I hear Danny Sullivan can’t either.
Would You Hire Matt?
Working on the assumption that Matt Cutts may be getting a little antsy over at Google, Shoemoney took the opportunity to poll the industry on whether or not they’d hire Matt away from Google if given the chance. Not surprisingly the response was a unanimous, "duh!".
After much consideration I have decided that I too would hire Matt if given the chance. I’m not sure what his official title would be (Head Geek?) but his job would consist of sharing an office with me and Susan and being our new BFF. I think one of the reasons Matt’s SEO videos were so successful is because he exudes a geeky charisma and is an all-around likable guy. I think having Matt around all day would be most fun! [He needs to bring his Language Families of the World poster though. I covet it. --Susan] _And he needs to explain the significance of this shirt, because I totally don’t get it.
If you’re interested Matt, I’d pay you $5 a day (what? I’m broke.) but I’d give you free access to Susan’s vast collection of action figures that she keeps on her desk and you could even bring Emmy to work. It’s fine that Susan’s allergic. [Hey! --Susan] Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll run it past Bruce.
Pretty, pretty princess Neil Patel shares what he learned at Shoemoney University. And because everyone knows college is really just about the parties, Neil reveals in the comments that Shoe U does come complete with a fraternity – it’s called Kappa Alpha Ringtone. Heh.
WebProNews reports that pregnancy searches tend to jump in January. Very interesting. How did you spend your holiday?
