Talking SEO


SEO Awareness

It's time we talked SEO. Serious Elbow Odor is a disorder that while often overlooked in today’s medical community. Also referred to as Smelly Elbow Odor in some circles, SEO can cause embarrassment, psychological damage, and well, a smelly elbow if left unattended. While cases of SEO have surged recently, 97% of SEO cases are completely preventable with proper education and awareness. (There was a case in New Zealand that went unexplained.)

SEO often strikes during the summer months as increased activity and warm temperatures combine to create the perfect environment for SEO to flourish. If left untreated, SEO can spread to the underarms as it takes residence in the unknowing host's body. Thought to be a condition that only affected the homeless and the poor, new studies have shown that almost everyone is susceptible to this rapidly spreading condition.

Known as Cubitus Effluvium in the medical community, studies have proven that SEO is most prevalent among teenagers and young adults ages 15-24. The most common cause of SEO is a lack of general hygiene, as failing to wash the elbow area often triggers the outbreak. The location of the elbow is thought to be the reason for SEO, as it can be hard to smell check for visible dirt.

Treating SEO is often as simple as cleaning the affected area. Doctors recommend checking the area with mirrors for a more thorough examination.

Parents should talk to their children about SEO, making sure they know the dangers of unwashed elbows and the potential for an outbreak. When asked, most parents admitted that they had never mentioned SEO because they didn't want to have the uncomfortable conversation. More frightening still, was that most children claimed lack of information as being the number one reason for their improper hygiene.

SEO is dangerous only because it is so often overlooked. Even those who shower regularly rarely manage to scrub the elbow properly. As SEO optimizes, those infected are often unaware of the strange odor permeating from the pores, often leading to embarrassing situations. Having a discussion about SEO spreads the word and gets ball rolling towards prevention.

An online search for SEO proves how unaware the public is about this fledgling epidemic. Google and Bing show only search engine techniques and optimization without the slightest reference to the medical condition. Tennis Elbow is still the prevailing elbow affliction, but SEO is gaining ground expeditiously.

If you have read this far than I am truly sorry, as I was just seeing how many times I could fit SEO into a 500 word hub. I'm not sure if elbows stink, but it seems to me that soap and water should do the trick. I completely apologize for filling your mind with jargon and made up statistics.I hope it's been as fun for you as it has for me. Go ahead, vote this one down, nobody likes a stinker..

Oh, I was thinking SEO was something you wanted, not something you didn't want. I have to go wash my elbows now. I will have to avoid SEO but not before I can use the word so you can add it to your number of words on this hub.

I don't mind SEO so much as long as people don't put their elbows on the tablecloth. SEO stains are almost impossible to remove.

You left out one important thing... how many time DID you fit SEO into this? I don't think I have enough fingers and toes to count 'em all, better use my ELBOW! And here I thought you were SERIOUS at first! Shows how gullible I can be! :) Very funny stuff!

Oh, my...when I saw your opening photo, I thought it was of my 17yr. old son who sorely lacks in the Hygiene department. His idea of a shower is to just hop in and right back out. He uses a bar of soap a year!

Clever Hub, I voted it as such.

This is hilarious. Not so much the farce as War Of The Worlds was in its original broadcast, but close! Loved it!

If you mention SEO in the comments, does that help your SEO with google? SEO, SEO, SEO, SEO, SEO. Is that any good? SEO. SEO. SEO.

Excellent review of a phrase I hear way too much. Wait a minute...Is there another affliction that has to do with your keyword? Where is that anyway?
