On a sunny day in the Middle East, Marine officer, Nate Fick, and his crew were wearing wrap-around sunglasses. He sensed a hostile feeling of the locals that he had never experienced before. Finally, he questioned one of the villagers why. “We think you have x-ray glasses on and are coveting our women.” He let them look through his glasses to see that they were merely sunglasses, but received a reply of “turn them on!”
It may seem funny to us that what seems so obvious, something ubiquitous in our culture, could be taken so out of context, but there are at least a couple important lessons to be had:
- Never assume you know what someone else is thinking. Ask!
- Technology can seem like magic if you don’t understand how it works.
As Senior Application Developer for World Synergy, I’ve heard some odd ideas about technology. I’ve heard other SEO organizations mention crazy things, nonsensical impossibilities, as if they were their answers were golden geese; the problem being that they don’t understand the technology — they just aren’t technological folks. They end up seeing the sunglasses of optimization as the x-ray goggles for Google.
Is SEO an art? Yes, but it’s also based on science. I hate seeing people waste their time and money in the snake oil that’s out there: people guaranteeing they’ll get you listed in the first spot of Google, then pointing the finger at the site implementers and developers when that doesn’t happen. We don’t do that. World Synergy takes responsibility for your e-Needs!
