Dilbert SEO Weasel

A Dilbert cartoon from Friday has been making its way through the SEO industry. The cartoon is pretty degrading of the SEO industry and the SEO profession. Just take a look at it and what it says:

I hired a pantless weasel to do our search engine optimization.

He'll help us game the system and corrupt the integrity of all the internet search results for our industry.

Your new job title is "accomplice."

The cartoon depicts and calls an SEO a "weasel" and then blames the SEO for corrupting industries and those that hire them as an "accomplice" to a criminal crime.

This is pretty serious stuff.

The thing is, most SEOs find it funny and only some are upset that this is the way the outside world views the SEO industry.

This is not the first time Dilbert featured SEOs, I documented the others at Search Engine Land. But this is the first time it was portrayed in such a dark light.

How do you feel about this cartoon?
