I don’t know whether to laugh or cry over this. Take a look and tell me what you think.
LinkedIn recently introduced a section of its site called Skills — it’s basically a directory / search engine where you can find companies and individuals based on the skills they claim to have. For example, I might list myself under “local SEO,” “SEO,” “social media consulting,” “Twitter marketing” and things like that. Under no circumstance would I list myself in this section:
Yes, there’s actually a directory section where people are claiming to be skilled at Search Engine Submission.
Actually, there might actually be some logic to it. Since there are surely a lot of web site owners who still think you have to submit your site to search engines, this might be a great way to get new clients.
Hopefully, these folks listed here are telling these potential clients that search engine submission isn’t really necessary in this day and age. (Which is what the LinkedIn description also points out, as shown on the arrow above.)
