Hitting up the bars to look for dates might seem like the furthest possible thing from performing keyword research or building links back to your site.
But when you take a closer look, the two have some common characteristics.
When it comes to dating, we often seek out matches who have obtained a high level of status and popularity.
We look for partners who have good networking skills and are associated with the “right” types of people.
In the spirit of Valentines Day, we wanted to share the surprising similarities between dating and SEO.In the dating world, when you start looking for a potential mate, you look for someone who’s in good shape and has specific physical appearance characteristics that appeal to you.For example, if you like a woman with a curvaceous physique or a man with a good sense of style, you’ll seek out these traits in a potential date.In the same way with SEO, when you’re looking for a potential backlinking partner, you’ll look for a site that has good “style” (in terms of its color scheme, uniqueness and readability), as well as an absence of physical detractors – in this case, ads.
When looking for a potential love connection, personality likely plays a major role in your decision to pursue one person over another.Most of us want someone who’s “real”, who works hard and is smart, kind and caring.
