With apologies to Ed “Bid Daddy” Roth
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) poster child Rand Fishkin has planted his yellow shoes solidly in the sh*t by outing websites that violate one of Google’s more controversial guidelines (here’s SEOrefugee’s take). It’s got the SEO community wondering just what those RF initials really stand for.
The high moral ground is difficult territory to control.
Note: Given our recent focus on Google and the fact that the search engine’s co-founder Sergey Brin just admitted, “On a business level, that decision to censor… was a net negative.” and “perhaps now the principled approach makes more sense”. I thought this cartoon deserved a bump.

When stuck for a idea, you can always recycle an old one. Here are two cartoons created several years apart that are based upon a similar idea.
The story of Moses parting the Red Sea is a familiar one. Google’s Matt Cutts may not be as well know but he’s famous (or infamous) to search engine optimizers, many of whom find their sites in the legendary sandbox, a place where new sites get stuck and are unable to place high in search results until they escape.
A word of explanation: Over at SEOrefugee (an seo forum, I help my son admin), our most notorious rep whore is an ex-NFL player who goes by the screen name of “Big Doug.”
