Who Coined "search Engine Optimization"
Posted 22 October 2006 - 08:58 PM
Let's go with blame for now.

No, my really old site...don't laugh...would have been webwhiz.net...
But I definitely did NOT coin the phrase search engine optimization. I doubt I even knew what the word optimization meant back 10 years ago!

Carsten never did confirm and released the article on Search Engine Journal and referenced your input Still a good article and well worth reading. I bet Carsten learned a lot about the early days. Good job everyone searching around for that info. I don't know if we'll ever find anything definitive.
Just in case anyone is searching in 2017, I am now coining the phrase "Chipotle bewitched" in reference to Scottie like behavior. In the future when people say "Chipotle engaged" or "Chipotle obsessed" and look for who first came up with "Chipotle bewitched", it is I!

flew Danny from the UK to our little redneck town in Oregon to teach
the company search optimization. My dad still swears that they
invented the term "search engine optimization" that day! I think
that was in 1997 or thereabouts.
That actually rings true to me and seems very familiar. Wouldn't surprise me at all. Might want to add that to the Wikipedia article.

(David-Chipotle is really a hard word to say! Good luck on that. Chipotle is my favorite example of terrible usability... it always gets a good laugh from the audience when we try to figure out how to navigate it.)

Interestingly, it also shows Jim's "Where Is The Spam Line?" forum. I remember staring at that title for quite a while one night early on, which is when I formulated my approach to optimization.

If you're interested Jonathan I can probably get my dad to cough up some specifics.

Adam, if your dad has any early references from somewhere, that would be great!
