The Secret To SEO Is Karma


A friend of mine from WMT, Steve, wrote an interesting article looking at how SEO is Nothing but Karma. His article was submitted as part of a competition, So we wish him luck with that, But that aside the article raises some good points.

In the article Steve tells us that to succeed in SEO you simply have to give things away. Whether that be knowledge, a service, videos, Your time posting on a forum - anything. Do good things and good things will happen to you.

So what happens when you do good deeds or give something away? Well it's simple. People like it, They like you, They tell people about it and they link to your site which in turn brings more people, who in turn like it, Like you, tell people about it and link to it. See how it works?

So let's all take a minute, Sit crossed legged on the floor, Drink some herbal tea and think about our websites, Karma and SEO. Let's also wish Steve good luck in the competition.

(you can earn some karma right now by telling your friends about Steves article)

PS. I look forward to googles KR (karma rank)

Thanks for spreading the word Matt and sorry I missed your post before now. I'm a little bhind in my reading in part due to a little extra work spent promoting the article for the contest.

It's been an interesting week for me and one of the things I've been finding is how so much of the article is coming true. Much of my promotion for the article has been nothing but karma.

I'd like to think I'be been doing good things online for awhile, though it's really not for me to judge. And while I don't normally ask others to help me in return I did this week.

The response I've gotten has been temendous with people telling me they've enjoyed reading the article and have helped spread the word for me. This post is one example.

I have no idea how successful my efforts will prove to be, but it's been a great week and a fun learning experience in how to drive traffic to a specific web page as quickly as possible.

It might seem silly at first thought to compare karma to search marketing, but it really is true that if you do good things for others they'll return the favor and do good things for you.

It's showing how the way forward in the world of SEO is so much more tied to people than it is to algorithms.

Thanks again Matt and I'll be sure to let you know how the contest turns out.
