    Twas the night before an algo change and I’m at my house
    My laptop is on and I’m clicking my mouse

    My title tags are crafted from keywords with care
    In hopes that the Googlebot soon would be there

    My keyword density was optimized to the specs
    While my homepage featured rich visible text

    With ma pouring link juice and me in whitehat
    I’d just uploaded a new Google site map.

    When out on the web there arose such a clatter
    I checked my page serve time to see what was the matter

    Away to my toolbar I typed on a mission
    Searched on my keywords and checked my position

    My site pages were slipping – it must be a new algo
    Page two, three, four and five, and some further below,

    When, what to my site should suddenly crawl
    But an indexer, a bot, spider, a combination of them all

    Rolling across the web with a new algo so hot
    I knew in a moment it must be Googlebot

    More rapid than eagles the SEOs they came,
    And he crawled, and indexed, and called them by name;

    “Now, Fishkin! Matt Bailey! Jen Laycock and Bruce Clay
    On, Ward! On Wall! Sullivan and Lippay!

    To the top of organic! To the top of the paid!
    Now dash away! Dash away! Your position could not have stayed.”

    As ranking that after Florida fell,
    Welcome back, welcome back, it’s algo change hell.

    So down to their laptops the SEOs they flew,
    With more link bait and keywords and H1 tags too.

    And then, in a twinkling, I heard from the bay
    The prancing and pawing of Larry and Sergey.

    My PageRank was crashing and my AdSense had stalled
    When down the chimney the Googlebot crawled

    He said “I feel lucky” as he stepped from the fog
    And his clothes were all tarnished with spim, spam and splogs

    A bundle of inlinks he had flung on his back,
    And they dripped out PageRank from inside of his sack.

    His eyes how they indexed during this algo eve celebration
    And he scanned the room as though looking for text navigation

    He said “These alt tags are weak, your downtime is high
    In truth it’s a wonder I even stopped by.”

    “No index, no follow, just what are you hiding?
    Logins, Flash movies?” he just kept on chiding.

    I thought of buying up links, but should I take the chance?
    Then I heard the music and knew, it was time for Google Dance

    I wanted to go blackhat, but somehow resisted.
    Then reading my mind, he said “You’ve just been delisted”

    I asked if onsite changes would get me indexed again
    He simply laughed and said “Do I look like MSN?”

    He spoke not another word, but just started crawling
    And all the while I saw my search rankings falling

    And laying his finger aside of his nose,
    And giving a nod, my competitor’s rank rose

    I asked “What I should do, is there no recourse?”
    He simply said, “Try some AdWords, of course.”

    Then I heard him exclaim, as he finished indexing my site
    “Do No evil to any, and to all a good-night.”

    Hi Aidan,
    There will be very few people who can really appreciate the complexity of your very creative post.

    It is beyond brilliant and I’m in awe of the time you must have spent on it.

    Your references to well known SEO international “experts”, Google people, various Google upgrades and algorithmic ranking factors was sublime.

    I vote this the most creative post ever, on Flying Solo.

    Very best regs,
    JohnW
