Us ladies realize that makeup is more of an enhancer. For those days we have that extra baggage under our eyes, the days our faces aren’t as bright as they could be, and that oh so important mascara for when our eyes just seem a little sad.
Men, on the other hand, seem to forget that makeup is to be just a little booster…not something to stop you in your tracks in a “HOLY DAMN” kind of way (that’s more the point of hot pants).
Back to makeup. Makeup to our face is like SEO for blogs. It’s used to help us get noticed, but not to over power us…i.e. blue eye shadow.
In my opinion crafting a blog title just for a keyword phrase is the equivalent to looking like MiMi from the Drew Carry Show.
I also feel very strong about this, may have even started some fights. Obviously street fist fights, which I obviously won…I live in the ghetto after all.
I’m all for the use of SEO, whatever you can do to help get your product/opinion seen, then do! But, lets not to be blatantly obvious about it. The whole point is to sly-ly slip in your blog/article/post (whatever you would like to call it) in to certain google searches. Yes, creating a post title that is the exact keyword will put you up there. But would someone click it? Haven’t you ever found you’re more likely to click something that catches your eye rather than something so dulled down it doesn’t seem like a title?
Let’s say you search for “dating tips”
Are you more likely to click “X Dating tips” or “12 ways to make him ask you out”
Personally I want to learn how I can get him to want me, forget dating tips…this is a better response than what I was hoping for. And should that be our job? As writers, marketers, blog creating artists, shouldn’t we want to create content that makes someone think it’s an even better find then what they were hoping for.
