U2 Validates Benefits of SEO

Filed in SEO by Matt McGee on March 11, 2010 2 Comments

My worlds are colliding. I mean my “U2 world” and my “SEO world.” I try to keep them separate, but this story makes that impossible. Check it out on the Somerset County Gazette web site.

Apparently, a local/small business owner recently got a job fixing a broken GRAMMY Award that belongs to U2. The article makes several cheesy references to U2 song titles, but here’s the part that matters:

“…one of the band’s management team got in touch after typing in ‘trophy repairs’ into Google.”

SEO FTW!

    I caught this on your Twitter yesterday and couldn’t tell if it was serious because of all the song titles in there.

    Still, great story!

      If it’s true, it’s pretty cool. :-) I can’t seem to replicate the search from here in the U.S., even using Google.co.uk and only searching UK results. I’m thinking something (like the exact search phrase) got lost in translation. Or maybe I don’t know my UK geography well enough, which is highly possible!
