One of the things I love most about the SEO community is the people, some of the friendliest, intelligent and most inspirational folks I have come across are working in this industry. Another thing which stands out about the people and which is something I can totally identify with is their love of music. Alessio compiled a great piece a little while ago “Now that’s what SEO’s call music” which was an amazing insight into what SEO’s listen to when plying their trade.
I don’t know what it is about the industry but it seems that every other SEO I come across is/was/wants to be a rapper and that’s cool with me. I’ve pulled together some of the best SEO related raps for your entertainment.
Mike King - iPullRank
Mike is probably the most famous of the SEO Rappers, I was amazed to read his slides “What being an indie rapper taught me about SEO” because he actually WAS a rapper, and a great one. (you can get his CD’s on Amazon and everything)
I ain’t on the payroll, so I’m gonna say this slowly. Roger Mozbot’s my Homie
Neil Walker - SEO Mad
Neil gives and amazing wrap up of SASCON last year, a simply amazing way to end a conference!
At least you feel my passion, I segmented all that data so I could make an ACTION.
Chuck – The SEO Rapper
I first came across Chuck because of his work on the E-Webstyle SEO Podcast (which I would recommend) but he is well know as “The SEO Rapper”. Chuck has a load of SEO based lyrics over on his site including the one below featuring the “hubspot crew”
Aaron Goldman – Lyrical G
Aaron is an SEO rapper out of Chicago who is all over the web, he’s also the author of “Everything I know about marketing I learned from Google“. Aaron (or his alter ego the PPC MC) has gotten into some epic battles with Chuck over time
Dan Shure – Evolving SEO
To be fair Dan isn’t a rapper, well, he may be but I can’t find any evidence of that on YouTube. I can find evidence of him playing keyboards for Hip-Hop/R&B group ”The Press Project“. Previous readers of the blog will know I’m a massive fan of Dan’s (see “Awesome SEOs on Twitter” article) so any excuse to mention him is fine by me, plus he looks super cool in this video..(song starts at 2 minutes)
Seedwell – Search Engine Rap Battle
Seedwell are a crazy creative studio which I happened upon completely by chance via their hilarious Search Engine Rap Battle videos.
Well connected, I got CRAZY links. SEO just means what Google thinks.
I’d love to hear any more SEO music videos you guys know of, just drop them in the comments below.
