    Default A surreal seo moment

    So i'm sitting in my office (local cafe) madly working trying to improve my Google rankings. Up to my eyeballs trying to make sense of Webmaster Central, checking Analytics and trying to absorb some techie stuff in seo forums that's making my head hurt.

    I look out at the street, and what do I see slowly cruising past?

    I **** you not, it's one of the Google street-view camera cars. A little 2door hatch with this massive tripod and 360 camera perched on the roof and the Google logo on the side panels.

    Is this a good or bad omen from the Google Gods????

    You should have made a huge sign with your domain on it and stood on every street corner they drove past!

    That is actually an interesting idea. I wonder if they would blank out the URL!

    I would have kidnapped them and held them for ransom. The ransom fee would be number 1 positions for your website!

    They drove past my house once, which I wasn't aware of until one of my friends emailed me a coordinate on street view saying "hey isn't this your brother"

    And it looked exactly like him... however, there is a boy down the road who looks like my brother, and it was him... Was kinda cool to have a famous brother for a couple of days though. Kinda funny actually.. The guy was riding his bike down the road and his expression looking at the camera was priceless... as in 'wtf you lookin at mate?'

    It would be awesome if you appeared there dino - you'll have to post the link if you ever find yourself there

    If they happen to drive by while I'm out back in my bathing suit god help those people whose eyes are scarred forever! I'm afraid there will be no camera left to take pictures of the rest of the trip.

    Good luck with that Rick... Can't see it happening anytime soon though..

    And by your comment about Renee Z - I'm guessing this is a search you conduct often since you know she turns up first?

    Well to be brutally honest, I never gave Renee Z a second thought, but was curious to see if you came up in my search, so I searched for Renee Naked (which bytheway I'm sure hundreds of affiliates would be intrigued by) and you need a little better seo to knock her out of that spot.....

    Hahahahahaha

    Sounds like a great idea, although, if god forbid I ever had to find a new job, it wouldn't look good for people searching for me... What if they just happened to have the same thoughts as you?

    Renee Naked...

    "Sorry, we thought your... experience... was not fit for the role."

    Bwahahaha

    On the other hand, I don't have any naked pics.. so you may have to put my face on someone's body...

    Wait.. I just had a great idea... Maybe we could rig it so that each view gave me a vote in the iGB Affiliate Awards...

    I can just imagine Alex going "WTF, 5 million votes for Renee Naked.. I gotta see this!"

    LOL

    Hey that's a great idea to win votes....

    And don't worry, if you do try and get a job they'd be a fool not to hire you, and if they saw you naked and still didn't hire you they must be dead....
