How do you know if the female in your life, whether that be your wife or mother, is a search marketer? Jill Whalen takes a humorous look at this with 12 Signs Your Wife (or Mom) is an SEO. Jill is one of the leading female search marketers in the world so she ought to know the signs that indicate that one’s wife or mother are involved in search marketing. In fact I would venture to say that many of the tips listed are out of her own life examples.
Here are a few of my favorites:
- You miss your school bus because SEO Mom was too busy deleting the morning spam to get you to the bus stop on time.
- She pays friends and relatives to chauffeur you to your various school activities so she doesn’t have to leave her computer for more than 10 mins. at a time.
- You come home from a hard day at the office and want to go out for a drink with your SEO wife, but she’s still in the same sweats from 2 days ago and it would take her way too long to get cleaned up to go out.
and the best one of all…
- When she goes away to speak at a conference, she puts a cardboard cutout of herself at her computer chair, and nobody notices she’s gone until day 3 when her husband can’t find his keys.
Funny stuff, Jill! Catch all 12 here.
