Earlier this month we asked you to take two polls in one post, we asked do you want SEO certification & standards.
I wanted to share the results from the Do We Need SEO Standards poll today and then share how the results differ from the Do We Need SEO Certification poll tomorrow.
We had about 150 responses to this poll and the results were that most SEOs do want SEO standards.
65% of the SEOs out there said yes, we SEOs need SEO standards. The rest pretty much said no, we do not need any SEO standards.
SEO standards is a controversial topic for the industry. Since there is a lot of black and gray hat techniques, having standards kind of rubs them the wrong way. At the same time, some would say Google's webmaster guidelines are a form of SEO standards.
Like I said, I will share the other poll "Do We Need SEO Certification" tomorrow.
Forum discussion continued at Sphinn.
