At Econsultancy HQ, we’re loving infographics in a big way. After all, what’s not to like? They’re great visual breakdowns of complex information,  far better than standard data charting, and are often extremely creative in their representations.

I’ve already dug out quite a few social media infographics, but rooting around across the internet also threw up a whole load of new ones I’d not seen, based around natural search. Obviously, I felt duty-bound to share them. 

The following are a handful of some of the best ones that I found. I’m sure there’s plenty more out there, so if you find anything interesting, leave links in the comments. As always, the original images are linked to in the headline text.

1. Value of SEO v. PPC

2. SEO FAQs – A guide 

3. SEO Hierarchy of Needs 

4. How SEOs spend their time

5. SEO Checklist 

6. Scatterplot of SEO tactics

Loving number 4 though I find better time management can be achieved by combining alcohol with coffee.

Unfortunately...the majority of these infographics are misleading, outdated, or just plain stupid. The only real use I can think of for these...is as examples of why you should never hire a marketer to do an SEO's job.

ha ha, love the use of  humour in this post. I love infographics as well, a neat way to break down complex information and meet your audience in a manner that everyone can understand - through visuals. The good old fashioned way  - "ART" meets technology.

Infographics are very convincing in PowerPoint presentations to prospective clients, as they get complex issues over in one simple graphic.

Nice post and I certainly won't take any too seriously or get on my high horse about how some are slightly out of date or technically wrong. Sometimes, you just need to take posts in the way they were intended, i.e. a bit of light hearted fun. Thanks for sharing.

Brings back happy memories of learning about SEO. I actually had pictures 4 and 6 stuck to the wall infront of my desk. Thankfully I don't need to do that anymore, but they can be a great way of getting your message across.

My favorite is still number 2 ! I got that one earlier and now I have it printed on the wall since a few weeks (it is 5 pages long!). So if clients come in, it helps a lot with the big blue part in number 4 :-)) Thanks for this post.

That this is virtually a non-job has been illustrated beautifully (albeit unintentionally) by some of these visualisations. 

This misuse of terminology is wonderful; how can you not love phrases like "off load functionality code" - especially when used to refer to CSS.

I suggest the following:

1) Create quality content relevant to target search criteria - and of value to those who have come to your site looking for information based on that criteria. If there is one thing to focus on, it's this.

Content doesn't have to be text articles. It could be a web based tool. It could be an installable application. It could be a game. It just has to be useful and relevant to the search terms you want to attract.

You won't get far fobbing people (or search engines) with links to other sites, low quality gibberish or trying to push unrelated content at them. Trying to do "SEO optimisation" on content that no-one wants to look at (or that no one is looking for) is an exercise in futility.

2) Full and correct usage of markup (i.e. appropriate tag usage, valid markup) and appropriately descriptive URI's. This is not the be all and end all, but it's a huge deal. If your markup isn't valid, you won't be able to know for sure how a close source system will interpret your content. If you haven't used tags properly, your sites relevance be underrated in some areas and overrated in others.

3) Get already high ranking sites to link to you. This will only happen if you have high quality content that is relevant to them. Active participation in marking a site is certainly worth while, but only AFTER you take care of the above items (not "instead of" or "before").

People need to stop try to trick search engine indexing software (which is effectively a black box created by a group of people both collectively and individually smarter than the self proclaimed "SEO Experts" trying to game them) and instead work with them by focusing on creating good quality content.

Create good content and the number of links you get from other sites - and your ranking - will increase naturally (not that it hurts to give it a nudge through active promotion).

The fourth infographic made me laugh as I find myself in it convincing possible clients that seo is a nice investment, and discussing budgets..I really love those times!

Excellent work Mr Hird. Just used two of the above in a 2011 presentation. Admittedly mainly just to add some colour. However, some things haven't changed much in the past year. Content Community Commerce: It's the future.

Yes I agree with you, SEO (ROI) is the king, how about content?

Content is king, if you have a new website and you wriite fresh new content without copy/paste from other sources you can achieve high traffic without off page seo.

Content is king I'm sure but if you act in a hard niche, you will need a lot of off page seo mate.
