Most Hilarious SEO Questions to Ask

Technology can be a lot of fun at times. There is nothing wrong in asking questions, my policy is, if you ask, you might be a fool for five minutes, otherwise you would be a fool for ever.


Fun with SEO

Sometimes such questions can be a lot of fun. Here are three SEO questions I got via email or overheard.

Overheard: SEO is just adding H1 and H2 tags

Wish it was that easy. Heck no! What would I say to that? Does H1 and H2 tags work anymore?

SEO is a process that starts with the on-page SEO (of which H1 and H2 tags do play some roles) and extends to wherever you are willing to go or until you rank first on Google πŸ˜‰

My Site doesn’t come up first on Google, what should I do? (Asked after days of registering the domain)

Don’t even think about any appreciable traffic from Google for the first 3 months. Instead of spending time on worrying over your analytics report, write as many keyword posts possible.

Depending on the competition for your keywords and the work you or your SEO guy have put in you might show up in the top 10 results after 6 months or so. Usually you would come up first for your site name in about 2 months or lesser (given it is not a common phrase).

I don’t see myself on Google Search because my name has an underline on every page. People will search under my name not with an underline

That’s one of the weirdest explanations I have heard for not appearing on Google. I have no idea how he got this explanation.

Underlines and bold text are styling added to simple text using the CSS stylesheet. In the eyes of Google, it doesn’t matter if your text is underlined or bold-ed, it can index them all. And anything that Google index is searchable.

To see how Google bot see your pages, use a text browser like Lynx.

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!


Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

    These really cracked me up. I have been trying to explain keywords to a group of bloggers for weeks now, and even after painting a picture and writing it for them they still don’t get it. *sigh*

  8. Tony Smith says:

    Actually, it can be done in less than two months with the right domain name. I was able to get my site indexed on the first page of Google’s SERP for the keywords “internet content writer” within a matter of a few days. Choosing a good domain name plays a bigger part than some people realize. It’s not the end all, be all of SEO….but it’s a good start.

  9. Ryan Critchett says:

    Good post. It really all depends on what you’re doing. In 2011, since social signals seem to be a big deal, I’ve gotten web pages ranked incredibly well (straight up, #1 spots) for keywords because I managed to get high authority tweeters to share the link to their followers. Sweet!
