For those thinking what the heck are the wonder pets and why are they in a SEO post?! Wait until you have kids, you’ll be surprised by how many different analogies pop up you didn’t expect. I promise you’ll enjoy this post.
My wife and I have a 16 month old, Preston. You might see his photo in the media box to the left. He is pretty cute, takes after his mom. One of his favorite shows is the ‘Wonder Pets’ and a verse in a song they sing goes, “We’re not too big, we’re not too tough, but when we work together we’ve got the right stuff.” Essentially teaching the kids that working together can solve any problem. Hearing this jingle while putting Preston to bed last night caused me to remember the first question Joe Larato was asked in an interview for the Search Engine Journal, “What are the most common mistakes newbie SEOs make?” The first part of Joe’s response, “Search Engine Optimization has changed over the years. I would say there are three distinct generations of SEOers: the meta taggers, the link builders, and the social media marketers. I have seen newbie SEOs try to choose one path for optimization. For long term success all areas and disciplines of Search Engine Optimization need to be addressed and made part of the ongoing strategy.”
