Today Neil Patel decided he was sick and tired of Jason Calacanis saying SEO is bullshit. Neil put out a challange to Jason in regards to something jason said a ways back.
here is Jasons quote.
“90% of the SEO market is made up of snake oil salesman. These are guys in really bad suits trying to get really naive people to sign long-term contracts. These clients typically make horrible products and don’t deserve traffic–that’s why they’re not getting it organically so they hire the slimebuckets to game the system for them.”
Neil fired back.
“So to you Jason, I offer the following challenge: I can take your blog and increase your daily search traffic by a minimum of 10 to 20% after 30 days of putting my changes into effect. I will NOT be doing anything “shady” or unethical and will even point out all the changes that will be made to your blog. You can even have your own designer/programmer make the changes to your blog; I will even layout everything for them using step-by-step instructions.”
Its going to be a great way to put these types of rumors to rest. Now I do admit there are your SEO’s out there that give us other SEO’s a bad name and give weight to such comments that jason made. I believe that in any feild you are going something like that but neil has provided a great opportunity to solitify the validitiy of the SEO community.
Neil, you have my support and if you need anything just let me know. For this to fail would be less then ideal.
Good luck NEO, I know you can do it!!
