What makes SEO such a great career choice? Here are my five favorite things about being an SEO:
1. Running SEO Experiments

Don’t let me fool you; SEO isn’t all fun and games. It’s hard work! Take a wrong step and your website can get banned from the search engines. Not too many people get second chances either. SEO’s always need to be on their toes; we’re always researching the newest techniques, talking to one another and testing our new theories.
Search Engine Optimization is a job that gets a bad wrap, there is no formal education and at any moment the search engines can flip your site upside down. Even with all that said being an SEO is awesome and I continue to welcome all future challenges.
