Thanks for the laugh. Cute article. I used to do SEO for a living many moons ago so I remember some of those cute little things SEO clients like to do.

LOL. Yeah, I thought it was a fun one to run. I've only ever had one of those types, but that client did pretty much every single thing on the list. (Including calling me every other day to report on the latest rankings.)

I never did convince them that all the rankings in the world didn't make a spot of difference because it's really about sales. We parted ways before too long. I think they went on to work on the site on their own, which was fine by me.
