When SEO’s Attack! SEO’s fighting each other – WHY?
Does every group need some people to kick so that the others feel better about themselves? I think that sometimes in our world of blogs and forums that tones can be mistaken, and words are easily misinterpreted.
I know there’s some SEO’s who hate me – there’s some SEO’s who I’m not too found of as well….but I really try not say things like "SEO Bob is an ass" (no offense if there is an SEO Bob out there) in a public forum.
Sure, I’ve felt I’ve been "attacked" before – who hasn’t? And sure, I’ve had the occasion to have to jump into a forum to try to defend my name or my company….but luckily it’s been a long time since I’ve had to do that.
When attacked…well, sometimes I’ve jumped in…and sometimes I’ve ignored it. Over the years I’ve seen my share of SEO’s kicking at other SEO’s….
What’s the correct form if you feel you’re being "attacked"? Is it best to ignor, or to attack back?
Advice: before you attack, or before you attack back, call up that person and have a chat. Getting involved in a public bitch fest isn’t good for anyone involved, and most of the time, it all comes from a misunderstanding.
Why must SEO’s attack each other? Can’t we all just bitch at Google? (but Matt does a great job of making even that hard to do).
