The Purpose of this Blog / Site
SEO is based on using proprietary knowledge to make search engines believe your site is extremely important (whether or not it actually is). The Honest SEO Report does not necessarily look at finding the best tricks of the trade, but hopefully works well to stop many tricksters from ruining the trade.
Much of the bickering in the SEO community is over small stuff. The truth is that most people bickering are usually just bickering over semantics.
From what I have seen the best way for the industry to strengthen itself is to have a completely non commercial decentralized system which is not based on rating SEOs. The web became successful because it was decentralized. Why should marketers be doing it backwards?
We all have different standards and moral beliefs and none of us really know exactly how or why the others do exactly what they do. Looking down upon one another does nothing to improve the industry.
There are a ton of people who will do SEO on your site for $49. Hey, its not honest work but the term SEO still becomes synonymous with the scammer because he claimed to be an SEO.
The only way the SEO community will build a reputation for itself is if it makes available freely information about learning SEO and information about how to find good SEOs.
This report was my best attempt at helping people find good SEOs, but I am sure many other people with far more experience than I could probably add some things I missed or suggest rewordings for things I could have said better (cause dog gone it, I am not always politically correct or eloquent).
and I hope they do...
Please leave feedback to let me know how we can improve this site.
