My SEO Fairy Godmother: A Surprising Tale
By LoriRandallStradtman on August 27, 2010
Once upon a time I ventured into the wide, wide world and attended a networking meeting.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear but a woman who evaluates sites for Google.
Upon discovering I create sites for the web she asked:
"Do you use Flash?"
Wondering how she'd respond, I told her "No."
Then she asked:
"Do you use any special tricks on your pages to boost your rankings?"
Wishing I'd never entered into this uncomfortable conversation I answered "No," because I do special things on the back end of a site, but no tricks on the pages themselves.
Without smiling or displaying any warmth the entire time, she demanded her final question:
"Do you write your own posts and encourage your clients to do the same also?"
Of course I said "Yes," but wondered what she was getting at with all her questions. The lady would make a great poker player.
Without warning she burst into a radiant smile and said my SEO approach is jussst right!!
Sometimes your Fairy Godmother can take on some pretty interesting forms. I'm so glad I met her that day!
Now maybe my skinny jeans Fairy Godmother will soon appear ...
