SEO as an Acronym

Written on January 29, 2008 – 3:41 pm | by bigoak |

Every now and then someone will ask what I do for a living and I’ll say I am the President of an SEO company. After a moment of confusion the inevitable question is, “What does SEO stand for?” Of course we know it is Search Engine Optimization, but that got me thinking, (much like my SEO Haiku) what else could it stand for, relating to search optimization?

So I have some other options for those of us in the SEO industry who may want something more interesting when asked what does SEO stand for? In no particular order here are some ideas for the SEO acronym. Feel free to add your own in the comments.

  • SEO = Stress Equals Opportunity
  • SEO = Searching Everything Online
  • SEO = Sweet Exposure Online
  • SEO = Seizing Every Opportunity
  • SEO = Some Extra (marketing) Offense
  • SEO= Supplied Energy Online
  • SEO = Successful at Everything Obviously

and since we are looking for an SEO Copywriter

  • SEO = Stellar Employment Opportunity

Nice for a momentary diversion, not much help for our clients, so back to work…

    I’ve often wondered if it is an SEO company or the person is an SEO or is it both. I have heard both used, but I’m not sure if there’s a standard. Strange I ran into this post while I was thinking about that.

    I love Search Engine Overlord, thanks for the addition. I can add this term to a few SEO Specialists I know of too: Sorry Egotistical Optimizer

    Selling Effectively Online is very good. I’m disappointed I didn’t come up with that myself. Thanks for the contribution.
