57 Of The Best SEO Jokes & Digital Marketing Jokes

Working in SEO really can be an emotional rollercoaster. One minute you’re flying high because one of your clients just got another knowledge graph and the next you’re feeling low because someone’s rankings dropped and you’re going to have to figure out why. Although we think it’s really important to have a good time at work there’s one thing our team can agree on. We feel most other digital marketers will probably concur when we say that SEO and digital marketing is not synonymous with humour. At least, until now…

UPDATE: This blog post is now Matt Cutts approved. Don’t believe us? The proof is in the Tweeting (Yes we do know how to use Photoshop and no, we haven’t used it to make this picture):

Matt Cutts Approved

It turns out there’s a lot of SEO humour around, you’ve just got to know where to look for it (good thing we know a bit about Google, right?) So, we’ve collected some of the best SEO and digital marketing jokes around into one handy place. We’re not promising they’re all hilarious BUT if you’re in the business we can guarantee you’ll at least break a smile while scrolling through our finds.

Let’s be clear, we’re not pretending we’re the owners or creators of these pictures, memes, jokes and videos. We’ve just used our years of finely honed SEO skills to discover them so you don’t have to. So settle down and prepare to be at least mildly amused!

Funny SEO and Digital Marketing Videos

Ever feel like non-SEO’s have literally no idea what you actually do? Well, for the most part, you’re absolutely right.

Yeah, ‘normal people’ really have no idea at all.

But how can they when we’ve basically got our own language? (We used to love Pandas).

Google have put together some pretty funny videos about web user experience too. Thinking twice about implementing recommended products on your next ecommerce site now?

We all know that if you’re going to use internal site search it has to work properly, right?

This is possibly the most ludicrous of them all, but still pretty pertinent.

Finally, we don’t like taking a dig at other forms of marketing too often but this was too good not to share from Adobe.

SEO and Digital Marketing Joke Music Videos

In all honesty, when we started writing this SEO humour piece, we never imagined we’d have a category in this blog about SEO music videos but here we are. It turns out there are some pretty talented lyricists out there who also know a thing or two about SEO. Their production values may leave something to be desired but overall we can’t fault their talent. First off…
