Almost a year ago on a cold stormy night, i was busy whittling away the early hours of the morning optimising a website to buggery, when i suddenly had a eureka moment.  I thought:

“Wouldn’t it be useful to have some witty in-joke SEO themed background music to accompany my search engine optimisation tasks”

– Chris Haines, quoting himself.

It would be a music playlist designed for SEOs, by an SEO.

Devoid of musical taste, but full of GREAT CONTENT!


What could be greater than that?  (Other than a link on the BBC ofcourse).

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am pleased to announce after almost a year in the making, that the definitive SEO Playlist is now here in all its geeky SEO glory!

Over 100 virtually unlistenable tracks that all have one thing in common:


They all vaguely relate to SEO in some way

The playlist contains SEO hits such as:

2 become 1 – Spice Girls


Google Dat – Jigga Boyz  (who?)


Go with the Flow** – Queens of the Stone Age


**(Trust Flow, naturally  …Don’t say it doesn’t matter!)


Follow the playlist here to get updates automatically.
