[Caution: Rants ahead.]

Too many people think that they are SEO experts just because they read every SEO article published by the famous and watch every video from Matt Cutts. 

But nope, it doesn't work that way. 

A real SEO never takes in others' opinion blindly. We setup multiple sites for experiment purposes. We track Google SERPs and study our competitors more often than we should. And our decisions are always based a mix of analytic data and industrial instinct.  

Deep inside, many of us don't give a shit about the color of our hat. As long as the site ranks and banks – that's what the folks said. We diversify and expand as much we can – risk management is the name of game.

So… are you a real SEO?

+Matt Cutts Tweeted this link our today to a Scraper Report form. I like it, though I wonder if it's really necessary to demonstrate the search result where the scraper might be ranking. Shouldn't we just burn scrapers in a a blue flame bon-fire anyway?

Snake Oil SEO

Every time when I got SEO expert’s advice that “to rank high on Google, you need to have all the keywords added into your keyword meta”.

(Don’t be surprised! There are still plenty of people buying into this shit nowadays – especially local brick-n-mortal businessmen here.)
