Ok,so I was going to leave it, not going to get all het up about it. But nah….I’m a Viking, my brain explodes if I don’t say what I think.
SEO Chicks has been going now since June 2007, ok so 1 ½ years isn’t THAt long, but in the blogging world we could have already come and gone. SEO Chicks has done really well (or so we like to think), the bloggers we now have on board are fantastic. Our reputation has grown and our goal has been achieved, yep we are chicks and we know search ;p
When I first looked for domains for the blog I was quite set on wanting to call it “SEO Chicks”, but the domain seochicks.com was taken, it had been bought a while back but nothing was on it. I had to make a decision, should I think of another name or should I chance it? I chanced it and bought seo-chicks both .com and .co.uk But it HAD to bite me in the ass one day, I’m not stupid, I knew it would. But I remain the right to still get pissed off about it (I’m a woman after all). The people that own SEOChicks.com has now finally decided to go live with something on the domain BUT funnily enough the site has pretty much the same colours as ours (ok so a different shade of green)! And It’s 5 women offering SEO, PPC, Social Media etc, but as opposed to blogging about it they are actually offering out their services. But I can’t help but feel a bit cheated, that they are jumping on the success of the “brand” that we worked hard to build. Although SEO Chicks was never meant to be an agency or similar, they aren’t technically saying they are us, but it’s still a bit cunning. I must admit I’m not keen on people thinking these are THE SEO Chicks. Maybe I should buy “THEseochicks.com”, oh wait, I just did!
Ok I will stop moaning now, I just want to make it clear to everyone that seochicks.com has nothing to do with THE SEO Chicks.
Cause we’re the real SEO Chicks, yes we’re the real SEO Chicks
All you other SEO Chicks are just imitating
So won’t the real SEO Chicks please stand up!
Please stand up, please stand up?
