Catfight: SEOs vs. Ad Agencies

SMS Text

It’s no secret that SEOs dislike traditional ad agencies and vice versa. The two have been fighting like a couple of school girls for years now about who’s best to handle online marketing campaigns. Being an SEO, I’m guilty of taking a few cheap shots here and there myself.
This is a fight that the ad agencies have been winning. They’ve managed to paint the picture that SEOs are equivalent to snake oil salesman (which some are), while at the same time dumping millions of dollars of their own clients money down the toilet pretending to perform the very services they bash. Hypocrites!
Thanks to Adrants we can chalk up a point for the SEOs…

…a debate between ad agency types and search engine marketing folks who are jockeying for position as to who’s best suited to handle a company’s online marketing. We think the SEO guys are a little bit more right than the ad agency guys.

Good to see that people can still see through all the bullshit. They also point to a hilarious parody site, Tribble Ad Agency, that does a great job of mocking the ad agencies. From their about page…

Pottsville, PA (PRWEB) June 21, 2006 – Tribble Ad Agency ( ) has opened it?
