The SEO Rapping Poetic Prophet

Now for some Friday fun. If you work in the web industry and do web design, web development, SEO, affiliate marketing, and/or web standards, you’ve seen this by now. (If not, where have you been?)

Who’s behind this rhyme? Charles (Chuck) Lewis, the Houston, TX guy who’s background is as varied as a spin of the roulette wheel. He’s been rapping since his early teen years at his local church. His style of gospel rap earned him the moniker the Poetic Prophet. After a few false starts, he started a record label called Mo Serious Entertainment to promote himself and some other acts.

Somewhere along the line, he became a Project Coordinator/Marketing Specialist for Pop Labs, where, I’m guessing, he learned about the complicated world of search engines, web standards, and ever-changing web browsers.

One day, inspiration struck him, and he began applying his rapping skills to his new trade. He recorded a handful of YouTube videos that became viral. And now, he’s being mentioned on Valleywag, Compiler from Wired.com, and ShoeMoney.

Looks like his SEO rap has been great for his SEO.

  1. personally i use tables theyre fine with me. i think they do the job well and sometimes it is too hard to do it with only css. but i don’t know css so maybe its just too hard for me.

  2. @xaoxao: If you’re building a website that is trying to draw traffic from search engines (which most sites do), then using tables can decrease your site’s SEO a bit.

    It won’t be the end of the world if you use tables, as other factors make your site more SEO-friendly than using CSS, but CSS-based layouts are another checkmark to follow for a truly search engine optimized website.
