I find it quite amusing that lately there have more than a few
so-called SEO experts, with paying clients, coming here to
the WF seeking a solution or advice on what are basic SEO
questions. Or things that should not be that hard.
Makes me wonder how these people get paid clients.
Seems like sort of a rip off if they are coming to the WF
and getting free advice. Then making out like some
high and mighty SEO expert to their paying clients.
"I have a client who I am SEOing a website for, and..
(fill in the blank): I can't, I don't, I'm confused,....
Rarely do the resident (paid) WF SEO experts ever answer
these questions. Maybe they hate giving out free advice.
Maybe they just ignore the wannabes and hope they fail.
People, if you can't SEO a website as an expert, don't
take clients. You are doing them a disservice and giving
the SEO profession a bad name. That's bad for all of
you. Notice I said "you" and not me. I'm no resident paid
SEO expert. Nor do I claim to be.
But when little ol' me knows the answers to ridiculous
questions, then there is something wrong with those who
take clients, do SEO, and ask ridiculous questions.
Now I am not talking about every question asked by these
people. It just seems 75% of them have no clue.
"So I have a client who I am SEOing a website for and I need..."
No. What you need is to stop taking clients.
It's a shame really. People who need SEO for their sites, and
are willing to pay for it, should skip the middle man and come
right here and hire someone with a rep.
I wonder if the paid resident SEO experts here go incognito to
other forums for advice.
