seo show off pollA few weeks ago, we ran a poll asking if you should flaunt your search engine rankings? We have about 150 responses in now, so I thought I share with you how SEOs like to show off their success.

Question: Should You Show Off Your Success With Search Rankings?

:: Depends On Business said 50 respondents or 34% :: Yes, But Privately said 48 respondents or 32% :: Never said 33 respondents or 22% :: Yes, Publicly said 18 respondents or 12%

Pretty nice level of disagreement between the SEO industry, don't you think?

Great poll!!! It's definitely not wise to overly guarantee and flaunt rankings. I think it would be a sign of someone trying to make a quick buck

Depends on the rankings really. Depends too on whom you're trying to impress and what with. BB

When I meet with a client I have no problem showing them how I got a website's desired search term to the top of Google SERPS. I won't brag and blog about it though. Usually just attracts undue attention, whether it's competitors or people looking to exploit the same tactics on a grand scale that could end up getting noticed by Google engineers.

I think that it depends on your business type for sure. I am an internet marketing comapny and in my industry it is absoultely essential.
