I’ve been speaking to a lot of people lately about the basics of SEO and I find myself using “Physical Fineness” and a metaphor to help people understand some the basic concepts and I thought it would be fun to share.

Hmmm... maybe I can use Physical Fitness inspirational screaming next time I manage an SEO Team: Getting programmers and link buyers to work extra hard : It’s all you baby, it’s all you! No pain, no gain. You da man! Once top ranking is achieved : Defend this house! We will! We will! Woof woof woof! It’s the 4th quarter baby! 4th & goal and one second left on the clock, whattareyougonnado???!?!?!?! Whattareyougonnado when this SEO team runs WILD on you?

Hey next time I get a top five ranking for a single-word term on Google can I run across the office, throw my laptop on the ground and do the SEO Shuffle?

Excellent points raised, and it’s a great comparison. Great addition to the journal, as well as a refreshing point of view.

This is a great post, particularly this point that Dave mentions: If you never go to the gym, the cost of membership was a waste of money; "One of the most common reasons why SEO campaigns fail is because the client does not act upon the recommendations of the SEO consultant they paid top dollar for. In my short experience I find myself going back to past clients sites to look for changes that we recommended to them and, in many cases, little to no action has been taken. If I’m going to pay top dollar for that membership you better believe I’m going to use it.
