The SEO Cycle: A Contrographic

by Jarrod Wright

Whether you've been in the industry for a while or if you're still just starting out, you've been there.

We've all at least once dipped our fingers into the shadier side of SEO. It's hard not to. Only very recently has Google started to finally crack down seriously on web spam in the SERPs, and even now there's still a ton of crap affiliate sites outranking brands. Sure, Google's heading in the right direction, but we're still not there yet.

That's why I thought this contrographic was an absolute perfect way to describe what's happened to SEOs at least once in their lives. It's also a great resource to show beginners, because I can guarantee they've at least thought about the shadier side of things.

So here's the first infographic to appear on Point Blank SEO!

Agree? Disagree? Keep the conversation going on your blog by embedding it (the code's above!). If you do, make sure you credit Jarod at Subtlenetwork.com, the creator, as well as this post (the embed code does this already, so copy & paste and you're good to go!).

Since Jarod & I realized that some of the images used in this graphic might make great visual aids by themselves (is that panda/penguin image not awesome?!), he also made them available as stand alones. The embed codes below take care of the attribution (each image is 350px wide). If you choose to host them yourself, remember to give proper attribution!


So, what do you think? Have you fell victim to this process (I have multiple times...)? I'd love to hear your thoughts below 🙂

Thanks for reading! Make sure you follow me on Twitter & checkout the course.
