  • WTFSEO is Tripling Down on Search in 2017

    Hi WTFSEOers, We wouldn’t be here without you, so I wanted to give you a brief update on some big changes happening at WTFSEO.

  • The Top Speakers at #Ungagged & #StateofSearch

    As part of our continuing series of covering events at industry conferences, we sent our new Latverian intern Constantin down to cover Ungagged in Las Vegas and State of Search in Dallas.  While he obviously couldn’t attend every session at each, what with them running on the same days, and with him not speaking a […]

  • The 15 Step Guide to Site Migrations

    Like the swallows to Capistrano, the chances are that you’ll regularly be migrating content on your site, either to a new domain, or a new URL structure.  All it takes is a new head of UX to suddenly decide that your Information Architecture is sloppier than a piece of bread that’s been used to sop […]

  • Pubcon Speaker

    Our favorite Pubcon Vegas 2016 speakers

    Last week we attended Pubcon, a conference that’s 2nd only to WTFCon (which we’ve decided not to hold this year as our ad revenue wasn’t good enough to be able to rent even a meeting room in a cheap motel in Detroit.   Anyway, we decided that in order to increase our Klout score we […]

    What If Crawlers Were on Tinder?

    After the success of our last viral piece “What if Crawlers were Trees?”*, we’ve decided to beat the corpse of that particular deceased equine and return to the scene of the crime with yet another “What if Crawlers…” post.  So batten down your hatches, gird your loins, put the kids to bed, rub some…(get on […]

  • Do You Want To Write for WTFSEO?

    At WTFSEO, we are dedicated to making fun of out of date marketing trends, events, and what some think to be news. And one of the ways we do that is by publishing guest articles by people who have more time than sense, and are in the field (the SEO field, not a literal field). […]

    The Guide to Legendary PokemonGo Spawn Points

    Given that the entire staff is wandering around the office with their noses pressed to their phones yelling “I see one!” and “Dammit, it’s another Rattata”, we thought we’d have our Latverian “offshore” team put together a guide to show you exactly where you can find those “gold foil” pokemongo characters. Use this list wisely, […]

    Why Modern SEO Requires Almost No Technical Expertise

    The Internet is complicated. If you think about the innumerable calculations that go into every Google search just to bring you the perfect information for your request, it can almost be overwhelming. Trying to appeal to every line of code in Google’s core algorithm to rank higher would be virtually impossible, even for the most advanced […]

    Google’s Reptile Disfunction

    Our woman at Google let slip that there’s a huge issue over at the ‘plex that they’re powerless to deal with.  Ever since Seinfeld let slip that Mark Zuckerberg was a lizard person (which he denied, but as we all know, only a lizard person would deny that they’re a lizard person), Google has been […]
