SEO Bailout Proposed

SEO Bailout

The Problem

SEO industry professionals have lost the will to link to each other. They are hoarding valuable PageRank capital. Unless action is taken to free up links, firms are expected to report losses in search engine rankings.

The Solution

Congress must act to pass SEO bailout legislation with these components:

  • 700 link rescue plan for failed search engine strategies
  • Fresh infusion of links from .gov domains
  • Buyout of defunct Web directories

This SEO bailout must go into effect immediately. Otherwise, search engine marketing firms could risk going belly up. Once the bill has passed, the president must appoint a SEO Czar.

Arguments Against

How will Americans react to the idea of creating a link pool to help an industry that engaged in risky linking practices? Is the U.S. government manufacturing of PageRank essentially the same as printing currency?

What you can do to Help

Help secure the future of search engine marketing by writing your congressman and demanding that the SEO bailout legislation be passed without delay.

I'm editor and keeper of the flame at Clickfire, fanatical social media blogger and builder of Internet things from way back. My love for social media and success with organic search led me to start my own consulting company. Apart from the Internet, I could be considered pretty worthless. More...


  1. I’m looking forward to my 700 links! Gotta be better than what I have now.

    Me too. I’m against pork barrel linking except when they point to my site :)

    I believe the free online market linkonomy will self correct as the bloated companies fail from lack of new links while newer future savy smb seo’s reap rewards for staying closer to reality.

  4. haha, i think i need support from the national guard, some .mil domains would be also supportive of my business

  5. Good post – made me laugh on a Friday morning!

    Ya, I do agree with that. If govt passes SEO bailout, it would be greatly helpful for Search Engine Optimizers.

    I agree with @michddot

    These toxic links aren’t the responsibility of the “mainstreet” linker. I think that just like the American Car industry, the companies that engaged in bad link policy should suffer and let the strong and quality linkers have a chance to get out of the shade of these decrepit giants.

    Haha… a great start to the weekend. Put a smile on my face. Question is, where do I sigh the petition?

    Thanks everyone for supporting the effort. A word or two of caution: if any of you SEO’s are called to testify before the congressional linking committees, remember to leave your lear jets back home. I also suggest you dress modestly–no black hats or trenchcoats.

    I agree that some .mil links would definitely be beneficial. Though as far as the SEO bailout legislation is concerned there would have to be some serious lobbying to get Congress to pass it. I will start a fundraising campaign immediately! You may deposit your donations to account #….
