Quicker than you can say ‘SEO London‘, Little Big Voice has a new addition to the SEO team here and it’s all go.
I am talking slightly in jest here though as the actual addition to the SEO team is in the shape of a rather cute 12 week old puppy called Homer.
He’s London born and bred and if I may say, is very challenging!
In a recent blog, I wrote about the benefits of having a K9 when working from home and while I sit here watching the little Andrex style pup eat a door (or at least part of it) I still think it’s a good idea.
It got me thinking about my SEO services when I set up in London many years ago. It suddenly dawned on me, I can in fact measure my SEO career (and the years spent working within the industry) through my dogs.
My previous dog Rocky became a loyal companion for many, many years and while I cannot honestly say his SEO skills were up to much, it was great walking near our local park in London when I needed a breather and on the odd occasion having someone to talk to in the office, rather than myself.
When he sadly went to SEO heaven though, I replaced him of course with Dillan, but recently I decided the Little Big Voice crew was still spacious enough to add to.
It’s strange having two dogs to be honest, as I’ve always been used to the ‘one man and his dog approach’ and whether the addition of my Andrex puppy will provide a whole new lease of life for me remains to be seen.
I can however confirm, that for my older dog at least, the new puppy has invigorated him and he has suddenly regressed back to times past, so it’s two puppies in the office every day at the moment.
I am now in hope of a miracle of science though. I, like a lot of other people saw Pudsey on Britain’s Got Talent and I’m now trying to train Homer to use a computer and understand keyword research.
It’s a little fact that it will take six hundred repetitions of the same word for a dog to remember it. So imagine if I can get him to hit ‘return’ on the PC if I say SEO London? Or better still, get him Google qualified?
I can see it now, Homer performing in front of David Walliams, Simon Cowell and judges.
The only problem is, at the moment I can’t get him to ‘hit’ return. It’s more like he wants to ‘eat’ return, but just like SEO itself, a lot of patience and hard work will at the very least deliver me a dog that ranks well in terms of behaviour.
So, the message here is clear. If you work from home, get a dog or even two and you’ll never have a moment’s peace, but you will enjoy the challenges it brings.
Oh and if you are in London, if you see a man running after two dogs in the park shouting “SEO London” it’ll be me and the dogs training.
