It might be therefore we see some responsible SEO companies found themselves in a position where posting a declaration of a "SEO Code of Ethics" on their sites has been a necessity rather than a luxury. The more the clients and employers (in case In-House SEOes) become SEO-educated the more they would demand of the SEOes to declare, follow and be responsible of a set of "SEO Code of Ethics" which insures the quality, and safety (not to be penalized by search engines) of the SEO works conducted on their sites.
Unfortunately, I have noticed that there is no consensus yet within the industry upon what such "SEO Code of Ethics" to cover and contains.
However, there has been few SEO companies which have created their own "SEO Code of Ethics". For example:
I guess several SEO companies would be pleased to declare and post a "SEO Code of Ethics" once there is a standard version on which the majority of the SEO industry has already agreed upon.
There is no need at present to mandate or police such "SEO Code of Ethics", IMO. What we need is to agree upon and create such "SEO Code of Ethics" and leave it up to each SEO company to decide for itself whether to declare and post such "SEO Code of Ethics".
