This, ladies and gentlemen, is why my mom is amazing. She takes an interest in the silly things I occupy my time with, which, in my opinion, is a sign of true love. She never ceases to surprise me with her hilarious texts, SEO-related Facebook activity, and witty quotables.
After I told her to search Google for “how to sew pointe shoes”, this is the text I received.
A fantastic newbie question. And another: “Is Goggle king?”.
After I explained to her that the SEO rap-game was saturated, she insisted that I create a rap and take inspiration from Chuck and sent me this video:
When she’s not coaching me on SEO rap skills, she likes to brush up on her skills over at SEOmoz.
But one cannot learn ALL THE THINGS from Moz… She varies her SEO training by checking in on what Distilled is up to, as well.
…on that Geraldine note:
Then again, if she didn’t have her ear to the ground on all things SEO, how else would I find out about events going on at work?
And who else would I have to encourage me after a long day? I’ll never forget the day she hung up the phone with the following sentence:
I’m not entirely confident she knows what that even means, which makes it even more endearing.
Top that, other moms.
Happy birthday, Mom.
wow- i’m going to stop making sarcastic comments to my mom.
pff, no way! that’s how i show my love!
this is a really unique homage and curated in a funny and interesting way.
kinda jealous your mom got a tweet from @everywhereist too #transparency
“you should do an seo rap” – awesome
This is just truly awesome. It’s great that your mum takes such an interest in what you do, and just as great that you show her how much her support means to you. Thanks for sharing!
love this. She may not understand what that means right now, but give her a few more weeks…just a matter of time before she’s critiquing your broken link building pitches. 😉
This is the cutest thing in the UNIVERSE and your mom sounds so cool. Clearly she raised a pretty kick-ass daughter.
My mom and your mom should connect, my mom drops real company shit and rand fishkin on the regular. My mom is 70 though so she doesn’t text, but her FB skills are second to none.
I finally read this. It made me want to call my mom.
its really great,i think now she loves SEO
Good for you, Emma. That is my first born you are talking about. I think she is a very special mom too.
This is AMAZING.
