My 2011 SEO Christmas Wish List

My 2011 SEO Christmas Wish List

It’s that time of year when kids of all ages excitedly finish off their Christmas wish lists while anticipating soon opening gifts filled with their heart’s desires. Although I can’t think of any material gifts I hope to find under the tree, with the holiday spirit surrounding me it is easy to imagine what I would wish for Christmas: an end to hunger, sorrow and pain; world peace; a healthy planet sustained by its inhabitants; more time with loved ones who passed; love, health and peace for my family and friends as well as for all – things like that come to mind.

Since search engine optimization is on my brain quite a bit, I thought about what an SEO Christmas wish list would contain. That’s an easy list to start, too, and one I thought I would share.

So here it is, the start to my 2011 SEO Christmas wish list:

  1. #1 ranking for our clients’ keywords – of course!
  2. A tremendous increase in non-brand organic search traffic and referrals – traffic that converts
  3. An unheard of conversion rate obtained and maintained
  4. Lots of new ideas for amazing campaigns with potential to go viral
  5. Thousands upon thousands of quality backlinks with good keyword anchor text
  6. A massive, engaged social community for each of our clients
  7. A search engine rep we can actually speak with when non-adwords issues arise
  8. A flood of five-star reviews for each client
  9. A few reasonably priced kick-ass copywriters who want to write, write, write and are filled with original ideas (contact us!)
  10. Industry experts who contact us wanting to guest post
  11. The return of keyword data “Not Provided”
  12. An end to blog comments obviously left only for a backlink
  13. An end to the growing tattle-tale approach to SEO. (Is that really how we want to play it?)
  14. A massage therapist standing behind me, working as I do

I’m sure there are many others that will later come to mind, but with time limited my list ends here as I get back to making some of those SEO wishes come true.

– Happy Holidays!
