HOT METRO FINDS: Michigan Businesses Under Attack Of THE WORST SEO Guys In The World
THE WORST SEO GUYS ON EARTH – Back in the 50’s comedian Lenny Bruce had a great scam – you want to hear it? He used to have a vicious drug habit and to make extra money he would dress up like a priest and go panhandling. He would also do this thing called, “Lenny the Gardener” where he would show up at your house and agree to do some gardening. He would take your money and then pull all of your garden tools out on your lawn like he was going to do some work and then just split.
Yeah…. not good. But that’s what he would do.
Skip ahead to about 60 years and guess what…. people still do that today. You wouldn’t believe how many half built websites I run into . Many of them look neglected and unfinished. Some have dead links and some don’t even work at all. These days these web guys are known as SEO’s. They deal with search engine optimization and they come in from all walks of life. Some — well, most don’t even belong in the game and have zero real world advertising experience. If you mentioned Foote Cone and Belding, DDB, or JWT they would look at you with a blank stare….. they were never taught how to work formally.
I’m going through some clients websites and I am shaking my head…. wow… this stuff is terrible.
Michigan is a disaster….. many of these businesses look like a bomb went off.
We have GOT to do better.
