SML SEO = See-ming Lee + Search Engine Optimization

Source: Amazon

After reading Turtles, Termites and Traffic Jams, my exploration of decentralized networks went down a very viral path. I discovered that the application of network theory is enormous and has huge implications and applications on every seemingly unrelated topic that I have come across.

It can be used as a tool and device to understand cities, computer networks social networks, human-human interactions (speech), human-computer interactions (HCI), computer-computer interactions (protocol), diseases, computer viruses, nature. If you think about it, all these things boil down to a single category: communication.

My recent interest in networks has in turn got me into search engine optimization — because search engine is essentially a highly networked database with stored properties between data collections. Here are the steps I have taken to research this topic:

  1. Study network theories (mostly through books and wikipedia)

  2. Dive into every social-networking sites and analyze their business strategies

  3. Domain-shopping and create targeted content as a way to validate the theories studied

It appears that my SEM (aka Wikipedia: Search Engine Marketing aka SML: Search Engine Masturbation) has paid off — I discovered today that I have accidentally fell into a gold mine:

  1. Googling design, technology and marketing returns about 209,000,000 results.
    SML currently secure results #1, #2 and #3.

  2. Googling design, technology and strategy returns about 159,000,000 results.
    SML currently secure results #3, #7 and #9.

  3. Googling design, technology and marketing strategy returns about 109,000,000 results.
    SML currently secures results #1, and #2.

  1. Your personalized results may vary.
  2. Sign out from Google to view neutral results.
