#BuddhaSEO #SEO Musings Tweeted to #usguys #blogchat #bizforum over time

#BuddhaSEO is 1st the realization of relevance and the need to be found, 2nd the organization of thoughts/words as written, 3rd technical #UsGuys

In my twitter profile I call out #BuddhaSEO.  As far as I know I’m the only one on the planet who uses this hashtag (so far).  I started this hashtag to recognize that SEO is never one and done.  SEO is a long term, ongoing process of creating relevance and is a Philosophy or Mindset on how to approach the Web.  With tongue slightly in check and apologies to those in my old Sangha here is my definition of #BuddhaSEO Tweeted in 140 or less:

The Four Noble Truths of #BuddhaSEO

#BuddhaSEO 1st Noble Truth: “SEO is suffering” imperfect, filled with anguish, stressful.

#BuddhaSEO 2nd Noble Truth: “Suffering is due to attachment” clinging to old ways of SEO.

Hi Josef! I enjoyed this post. I'm not Buddist either, I'm Christian, but I do know what Karma means, Dharma is new to me but has to mean "balance", yes? I love Twitter, and am very new to the Internet and SM (less than 1 yr). I've noticed that I will either block or unfollow any user where I get a bad feeling while reading the tweet. I'm cautious by nature and my spirit is sensitive, so by being so "choosy", I'm actually still under 500 on both followers/following. I don't like automated tweets unless it's someone I already know. Their content redeems them! Otherwise, I enjoy the interaction and engagement knowing there is a real person on the other end! I know, too, some people can't stay online because of work, but really- if their content is rich, a once a day tweet is plenty. Otherwise, if anyone really reads to understand- no one and I mean no one I don't care how smart, has the time to read all that's out there! I think that's probably why you've written this. How does a person manage something so massive? Thank you for the (as another Buddhist twitter friend says) buddhaful post! It's a great help. Some of it went over my head too, but hey- I love people smarter than me. That's how I improve! My best,


I'm Jewish, Josepf...you've gone over my head!


SEO is what I have as the main focus for my site... I am doing everything to have a good SEO standing.
