3 Things that Dating and SEO Have in Common
When you come to think of it, dating and SEO have a lot in common. Being single and someone who has done both, I think about how dating and SEO have similitude. Below are just some of those similarities that I have found.
In SEO and dating, you need to position yourself to be found. Once found, you need to work so hard to weed out the spam ones who just want to link with you and identify which ones have the purest intentions.
1. Position yourself to be found
Whether it’d be SEO or dating, you need to position yourself to be found. You don’t expect people to just come to you. You need to place yourself in a position or places where prospects would find you. You have to position yourself to be found so you would no longer have to look around.
Join conferences, seminars, workshops, community activities, barhop (if it’s your thing) and go to places where fellow singles will easily spot you. Getting found is not the end of your homework though. You need to be attractive enough in order to get your prospect’s attention. In SEO, once you’ve put a nice title about your article, you need to keep the reader’s attention and keep them in coming back.
2. Weed out spam
Once you’re done putting yourself out there and successfully gotten yourself in the position where boys see you, there comes the point where you need to weed out the spams. In dating, these are the boys who are simply interested in getting on your pants and not really in getting to know you better.
3. Know if someone has pure intention or just link building
Perhaps the hardest part is identifying which among your dates have the purest intention. In SEO, we call them link builders. These are the people who get paid or getting the most benefits from getting linked to you or with you. You give them link juice but they don’t really provide real value to you. Users. There are lots of guys out there who only want the idea of getting linked with you, have the bragging rights that they’ve dated or hope to do you. It may take some time trying to filter and weed out the spam from quality links (dates) but hey, there’s no rush to greatness (and great relationship).
