I realized recently that writing about dumb-asses and crap in the SEO world did nothing but deface the Fire Horse Trail (my SEO blog) and the final stroke was this garbage that was the latest episode of ‘Let’s trademark a known acronym, that some other monkey brain already tried and failed to do!”
Not only did I get duped into using the word SHIT in the heading, but even put a picture of this silly twit as well. Well holeeee-shit what a fuck’n waste.
What’s a geek to do? With all the garbage there is in this thing of ours, the blog would be nothing more than a freak show of me slowly drifting to madness and sinking in bullshit. So here we are…
Welcome to SEO Bullshit!
Of course for our maiden voyage there is no better place to start than the proverbial straw that snapped my camels spine like pencil I shoved up my nose when I first read about it, to try and skewer out the cognisant parts of my brain to stop the pain. Yes, your friend and mine, Clinton Cimring…
If you missed all the fun, be sure to drag yer ass back to the original post and read it.
With me now? Great. You’d think that ol CC woulda’ possible responded to the potential ORM nightmare with some intelligent banter, calculated crowd control or even misguided malevolence. You’d think… but no.
Instead we got;
I mean, even that Jason Gambert guy worked his sorry ass off to at least participate in the episode of the TM drama in a semi-intelligent manner. So at least his brand of bullshit didn’t stink as bad. But this guy? Sheeit.. that was as odd as the rest of it and made me think;
“Hey Clinton, maybe YOU should be the one wearing a goddamned purple monkey suit… M’kay?“
If he believes that someone trying to TM the acronym (and potential charge for its use) isn’t ‘serious’ then WTF is? Sure, SEO is Dead, SEO Sucks and of course, (some) SEO is Bullshit, but are we really going to be thrown off the trail with a few arrogantly flippant remarks? Is he insane?
I told myself that I’d keep the posts here rather short, and try and encourage more convos and less of my sorry ass, but I can’t help it… it’s just shit-brained madness of the highest order.
Search Elevation Optimization?!? I read most of the associated documents he wielded as some flim flam proof of the delusion and well… they say ‘web site optimization’ and ‘search engine optimization’ here and there… NOTHING about ‘elevation’. But the claim is that somehow 1+1 doesn’t equal 2 here. Which is it? I am so friggen lost…
What about some of the client invoices? As Michael Martinez noted, some invoices are dating some 7 months before the site in question was ever even registered. What in the fuck is that about?
This all just registers on my own bullshit radar that’s for sure…and the deeper you dig, the more it stinks.
