It’s Halloween, so you know we had to put our heads together and come up with some crafty Halloween memes that speak to both our love of Halloween and digital marketing. Just because we’re 6 feet deep in dashboards and spreadsheets every day doesn’t mean we can’t flex our creative muscles.
Halloween at Ontario SEO typically consists of a digital graveyard, pumpkin carving, decked out costumes and way too much Halloween candy.
This year, we’ve had to get creative with our festivities, and what better way to celebrate than digital marketing Halloween memes? If you’re an SEO specialist, developer, content professional, a paid or organic marketing specialist, indulge in our Halloween memes or send these to your friends who love both Halloween and digital marketing.
What Do These Mean?
There’s a method to our madness, we promise. Here’s what our Halloween memes mean:
Gourd-eous Website Architecture
A strategic website structure is a beautiful thing to us at Ontario SEO, and from an SEO perspective, can go very far in getting Google to crawl the important pages on your website. It’s not uncommon for us to see a Frankenstein-ed website with poor navigation and site structure, but when we stumble upon a beauty, we celebrate. For this Halloween meme, we’ve referenced “gourd” or “pumpkin” instead of the word “gorgeous” …throw us a bone here.
The Best Place to Hide a Dead Body is on the 2nd page of Google
We wish this one was an Ontario SEO original, but it has long been said that the 2nd page of Google is basically useless. Unless you’re doing some heavy-duty research (which most consumers don’t), if you’re ranking on the 2nd page of Google for your core keywords, you’ve got some serious work to do to increase online visibility.
Candy Corn is the Keyword Stuffing of SEO
Candy corn is cheap and plentiful this time of year and so is the tactic of “keyword stuffing” when it comes to SEO. Jamming a page full of target keywords may be a cheap and fast way to implement some SEO on a website, but the result is usually a mediocre user experience and a mediocre effect on rankings – not unlike candy corn. We prefer the full-size chocolate bars of SEO (a strategic approach to on-page optimization)
We Spend Way Too Much Time on The Web
This one is obvious – as digital marketers, our work consists of getting you in front of your customers, so naturally, we’re always on the web. The web, also referred to as the World Wide Web (www.) is the information which is accessed via the internet.
404s or broken links are an SEO horror story. If a specific page returns a 404 error, it means it doesn’t exist, so naturally Google can’t crawl it. It’s not the actual 404 page that hinders SEO, but the poor user experience a 404-page signals to the search engines.
We Target by Postal Code
There’s something to be said about targeting by postal code. We like to get granular with our ad targeting to the point that it’s slightly creepy. Like trick or treaters, who know where to get the good candy, we do the same for our clients to get them in front of customers who count.
A Website with No Keyword Targeting is as Good as a Ghost
Your website can be a thing of beauty but provide little to no SEO value. If your website isn’t targeting high intent keywords relevant to your product or service, you’re not being found, so it’s as good as a ghost in our books.
Joomla: The Haunted House of CMS
Joomla is a content management system (CMS) that we dread working with. We always recommend WordPress or Drupal to our clients, as they are user friendly and easy to edit when our clients need to add something to their website. Joomla is a nightmare-inducing thing to us at Ontario SEO, so naturally, we equate it to a haunted house.
Black Hat SEO
Black hat SEO is a term in the SEO world that refers to practices that violate search engines’ terms of service. At Ontario SEO, we only leverage white hat SEO tactics, ensuring our clients see continual growth, year on year without penalties. We do make certain exceptions on Halloween 😉.
The <head>less Horseman
This Halloween joke is an ode to the web development world. The element is a container for metadata, which is placed before the tag on a website. These two tags of code are usually found on a website together, so that’s why this meme is absolutely hilarious.
