If Your SEO Skills Were a Song, What Would The Song Be?

eye-of-the-tigerMy SEO skills would be the song, “Eye of The Tiger.” It’s by Survivor, and the main chorus says: ‘rising up straight to the top, had the guts got the glory, went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop, just a man and his will to survive. It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the cream of the fight, risin’ up to the challenge of our rivals, and the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night, and he’s watching us all with the eyeeeeeeee… of the tiger.’

Not only does it have very inspiring melody and rhythm (which are appealing qualities of any song, in my book) but the lyrics almost 100% accurately describe my whole day. So, I’m going to take each refrain and relate it to a part of my SEO skills.

‘Rising up straight to the top’ refers to my efforts to get all of my client’s keywords to the top of the search engines.

‘Had the guts got the glory, went the distance now I’m not gonna stop’ refers to the fact that I have to be constantly working on improving my own seo skills while implementing tried and true methods of link building, blogging, social media, and on-page SEO.

‘Just a man and his will to survive’ refers to the fact that at the end of the day, I’m only one person who has either used his skills or hasn’t. Now just as a caveat, any fighting, learning, and improving on my part really boils down to understanding how to make a site relevant for a particular search term, and then improving site conversions by making the site useful for visitors.

And then the main chorus: ‘It’s the eye of the tiger (referring to Google and their constant algorithm changing and monitoring of their index), ‘rising up to the challenge of our rivals’ refers to the fact that there are always other SEOs out there working on getting their sites to the top of the search engines for any one of my keywords. ‘The last known survivor stalks his prey in the night, and he’s watching us all with the eyeeeeee of the tiger’ (Matt Cutts).

    It would be Bandiera Rossa, because of the line “Il frutto del lavoro a chi lavora andrà.” (The fruits of labor will be for he who works!).

    An interesting blog post, I’m not really sure what my song would be but the eye of the tiger is a great fit for all SEO’s.
