Would you recommend your son to go into SEO business?

    SEO is one of a few business areas allowing real freedom. But, in return, you can never be sure that you will last successfully for long in SEO.

    Imagine, your (future) son approach you and say "I choose to become a SEO guy, spending my 8 hours a day purely on sites optimization".

    What would you tell him?

    do not worry about seo but go for niche microsites and use seo as a tool to promote your sites.

    Tell him go for it.... but make sure he has a mind of his own to learn...sometimes he will read stuff here that is not true.

    too much sitting in front of a computer , not good for your health , and high percentage risk to become fat ... :D LOL
    maybe 2 hours become SEO and 10 hours to do proper jobs(go 2 office or sometimes like that) and 1 hours exercise (fitness) , ,2 hours have fun (shopping,watching movies) , 8 hours sleeping(snorring).. thats an ideal activities.

    I would recommend my son to go into SEO because I would teach him the right ways to do it.

    There are the right ways, and there are the ways that everyone else is doing it....

    Start with the basics, see where he takes it to and improve upon that.

    Yes,I would recommend him to join the seo,as it is not an easy task to maintain the good rank always in search engine .Avoiding the duplicate data is important factor.and there are more factors in seo to handle and it is not compact .It is a vast field and also quite challenging also.

    The people who thought like seo is poor work then they are big bloody basted! It is the technique which gives you the full proofed sale without hiring a people for that. I always recommend to all that pick the SEO as a profession..
