Faith based SEO: more than ethical… it works!
If you don´t believe the Bible has very effective principles for seo working, you know nothing about the Bible. After all, Bible is the oldest book around… and still the one with better indexation, positioning and spreading along the web.
Let´s check some of my favorite SEO Bible verses:
Ecclesiastes 9:10(21st Century King James Version )
“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might, for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave whither thou goest.”
Every SEO worker reading this must agree that hard work is the key for good SEO results. “Whatsoever” we find to do for a website we need to do it “might” and this is another S.E.O. rule. But keep an eye on the word “thy hand” and forget automatic or robotic process. Every white hat SEO worker knows well that natural, craft content is the way to success in SEO industry.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 (New Living Translation)
“but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.”
As SEO specialists we are continuously researching, investigating, searching and finding new theories, ideas, tips and information about our work. We need to test everything around: there is no something too much crazy to be avoided or skipped. Sometimes the most crazy ideas get the best results. So we need to test it all (as some other Bible versions said) but… hold on only on to what is good, in this case, for SEO purposes.
Of course there are tons of Biblical texts inspiring our team every day to do our job. I even share this principles with our brothers in Jesus at any Church near me because i think these principles may apply to any kind of job you do.
So you can be an ethical, a white hat SEO… and you can move one step more and be a faith based, Christian SEO worker.
