First Day – Ranked Hard, An SEO Comic

Update 2/11/08: We have made this comic, bigger and better. Come view the new and improved ‘Ranked Hard: SEO Comic‘ at it’s new home.

Welcome to the first installment of our SEO comic, “Ranked Hard”!

This won’t be a daily comic or weekly, but we’ll do our best to get a new one out as often as we can. This comic will be about the trials and tribulations of the mythical staff of Ranked Hard, a growing SEO company. There will certainly be parallels to our SEO company, Big Oak, but we won’t tell you where reality and fantasy cross. Although most “SEO people” who read this will certainly have their own ideas about what is from real life. ;-). In any case, have fun and give us your feedback. This is our first attempt and I already see a few things to improve on the next comic.

I will be posting head shots and background about all the characters. For now, let me introduce you to the crew at Ranked Hard:

  • Bradley Smart, President & SEO Consultant
  • Roosevelt Jones, SEO Consultant
  • Beatrice Gonzolez, SEO Researcher
  • Simon Caine, SEO Copywriter

We hope you grow to love them as much as we do. And without further delay, our Ranked Hard’s First Comic Strip entitled “First Day.”

  1. Hmmm, not very funny but interesting. Keep up!

  2. Haha, this is hilarious.

  3. Publishing an SEO comic strip is such a superb idea; one that has potential to produce return on so many levels. Good onya.
    This first one gave me little grin, so I’ll be checking in again to see how it evolves. I’d really like to know how it impacts your RSS subscriptions 3 months from now!

  4. The comic is quiet interesting, but I see it not so funny. Hope to see more stories coming up. I appreciate your effort in launching this comic. πŸ˜‰

  5. Nice one! I can’t wait to see it fly!

  6. Like the concept, I’ll be checking back for more about the Ranked Hard team.

  7. If you can work in a little sex and violence this thing could become a hit!

  8. To the people saying this isn’t very funny, it’s a lot funnier than most of the crap on TV. What would you rather do, read this, or watch Two and a Half Men?

  9. Well I am not sure if it was suppose to be funny from the first place but is definitely unique and interesting. Thumbs up and waiting to see what’s next. :)

  10. Very clever piece of humor guys! :)

  11. “Try to avoid sleeping next to Roosevelt.” So they sleep in different beds every night. That’s disgusting. Well, I guess it doesn’t matter as long as they change sheets.
