I am disappointed to discover hubs published by "Certified SEOs" as there exists no certifying authority for the industry! I feel that these hubs and their authors maintain an unfair advantage regarding traffic generation and are being illegitimately recognized as search engine optimization experts. These misrepresentations challenge the community integrity of HubPages and pose a consumer threat.
Fraudulent and misleading representations are allowed by certain people. You have to be certifiably fradulent or misleading.
To certain fradulent Hubbers: You Know who you are.
And so do we. We enjoy some of you, and ignore others.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for commenting Rochelle! I guess it would not bother me so much if it were not for the victims whom fall prey to this GARBAGE. The hubs I am referring to are heavily saturated with promotional notes. Just concerned for the individuals who are overwhelmed with trying to figure it out and/or are too busy and call one of these clowns and pay them to perform an optimization.
Fraudulent and misleading are strong words. However, you are correct when you say there are no formal qualifications for SEO probably because it is a collection of many different disciplines.
Thanks for commenting Peter! I get outraged sometimes at what people try to pass off as credible and/or valuable advice, especially when the comment is heavily enriched with self-promotion... I really would like your opinion on the hub regarding these misrepresentations.
I see what happened someone misrepresented the article , mmmm interesting and thank you for letting us know as I personally did not even have a clue. Write an article on misrepresentation with out directing it on that particular article or articles and you may end up with many responses.
Worst type of SEO: Claims to be a certified expert and then talks about keyword density. If any SEO talks to you about keyword density, unless its to point out that search engines dont use it, run like the wind and dont look back!!!

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

Do any of you here know which is better to use, the high competition or the low competition keywords? I have been reading SEO notes and I always get opposing thoughts on using keyword phrases in writing articles. What...
