I’m An Old Fart SEO – It’s Official

I never thought I would look on being called an old fart as something positive, but I suppose it is just a matter of who calls you an old fart, the manner in which they tell you, and where and to whom they say it.

In this particular case I am flattered, and seem to be in great company.

Old Fart

I am not the biggest fan of blogrolls on my own sites, I much prefer juice to flow via editorial links in content, and moderated links in both comments and trackbacks.

Fortunately I do link to the guys at Search Engine Land quite frequently when discussing industry events, and I will be enhancing my industry resource links in the near future.

Thanks Danny

    If by old fart they mean “in it for the long ride” and likely to still be doing well next year then yeah…

    Wonder what criteria they use to qualify if you’re and old fart or not. Pre Florida update?

    If its true “what goes around comes around”, then you’re not old … just securing advanced positioning for web 3.0. The line starts behind me though!

    An “old fart” is just a way of saying “experienced and wise”.

    Or maybe they think the parkinsons will be kicking in shortly and you’ll start wondering why your site has so many subscribers when you only started it yesterday.

    The term “Old fart” is very British and is used normally under an affectionate mood to describe some one who one is fond of. Congratulations though I do not quite know you qualify for the first part “Old”

    Hey Any, need some WordPress tips. Do you have an old post on adding tags or a tag cloud to a WordPress template? WordPress’s online tips aren’t the easiest to follow.
