Greetings WTFSEOers, It’s that time of year again where we list the top Social Media Gurus of the year. These social media mavens are out there tweeting, and retweeting, and somehow getting paid to just screw around on Facebook all day.
We gathered data, crunched the numbers, blatantly ignored them, and came up with our list of the top social media cowboys of the year.
You might be asking “what year?” but that doesn’t matter – we purposely left off the year so that we can recycle this post next year too – that’s what our top 13 SEO Experts recommended we do as part of our blog’s content strategy.
