  • Good stuff. I just really loved "Once You Go There, You Can Never Go Back." Absolutely true. It makes me think of when I first began my music theory studies. After a few months, you just can't listen to music in the same way. A cool guitar line becomes another 'motive' to analyze. It's an insane transformation. And after being in SEO and Internet Marketing for about a year now, I'm noticing the same thing. You just can't ever look at the Internet the same. Really wild. Thanks for talking about it.

  • You've got funny pictures in there. I think SEO is an ever changin field, one needs to adapt constantly.

  • Great article and definitely written by someone that has obviously been involved in SEO. Only an SEO pro knows that this business can be challenging, interesting, compelling, and boring as hell all at the same time.

  • Your story about entering the world of SEO directly reflects mine... I just sort of stumbled onto it... and then I was sucked in. SEO can definitely be a pain in the ass, but I look at it as a puzzle to be solved. The thing about this puzzle is that once you think you're close to solving it, Google comes over and pushes it off the table... Perhaps I'm a fool for doing it, but I enjoy picking up the pieces and putting the puzzle back together again, hopefully building something more resilient to what changes may come in the future.

  • Your article made me think about my first encounter with SEO and why I was so fascinated with it - I was working as a computer teacher at a business college and held som IT-courses in the evening for people sent from their work to get an introduction to IT and the Internet. I have no technical background - but had a bachelor in marketing from my early career-days. Soon the students would ask me how they could rank better in Yahoo (pre-google days...I know...it was ages ago!) with their websites, and being unable to answer right away I started studying SEO online and stumbled over the first SEO whitepater from Webposition - what an eye-opener! From then on I never looked back and has spent the last 13 years doing nothing but SEO. It IS at times boring and mind numbing but I find if you have the skills and tools you can make SEO more interesting than simply "content SEO" or "linkbuilding". I have developed some diagnostic tools giving larger websites a chance to find large "chunks" of seo-related errors to correct and I have specialized in acting as a consultant mapping what needs to be done and then handing over the job to an internal IT/Marketing-responsible person. It made SEO so much more interesting as I had to challenge myself and my knowledge every day to stay ahead of very SEO-savy IT/Marketing people from the companies I help. Thanks for a great article that made stop and think about what I am doing :-) Best Jens Peter

  • Your pictures are hilarious, and so true. I am amazed all the time at how fast and often the SEO world changes. I too, as others, stumbled into SEO, and now am entrenched in it. It never gets old because of the constant change. No matter how hard it is, it is still addicting and worth it to see improved rankings and traffic because of hard work. Thanks for this post.

  • Really career in seo is not that easy after Algo updates like Penguin and panda. I have seen people not knowing how to get adapted to changing scenarios these days. We have to expect the worst from search and engines and never rely on them for traffic. When i entered the Seo industry my main motive was to earn some quick cash and from then i never looked back, however i am still learning as always. :) @Emily don't you think there should career guidance seminars given to all who wants to get into Internet Marketing. lol

  • Great post! I would have to say that I, personally, chose SEO intentionally, assuming that the majority of people who would want to find something on the Internet would do so through a search engine. Yes, the actual work and amount of effort that goes into it is a complete pain in the ass sometimes, but when you check the ranking and traffic reports and see that all of the hard work pays off, and hear from clients that they're generating business through your efforts, it makes it all worth it.

  • I love this. The upside to doing work that a lot of folks don't understand or wouldn't enjoy doing is job security. Especially when your industry is growing.

  • I enjoyed reading this article and of course can relate. You did miss one big change though over the last 2 (and now 2 1/2 years) and that is the death of the "SEO Consultant". There might still be a few people out there who can pretend they know everything about On-Site SEO, Social Media, Pay Per Click Marketing and Link Building but few believe them anymore. The dynamics of each of those change on a daily basis. It would be like having a surgeon send all of his assistants out of the operating room to do the surgery alone. As the field changes it also creates more specialists.. and with more specialists will always come more change.
