    Simply put, you can label your "profession" as being an SEO Expert/Consultant or an Internet Marketer.

    Explain it as complicated as you can, and they wont ask you anything further. Just saying, as they wont understand anyway.

    I was having a beer with my neighbor the other day and he asks me "What is it that you do for a living? I never see you leave your house". I say to him "I am a high lever marijuana dealer". Then I just stair at him. He looks at me for a few seconds, and goes "Yeah, that makes sense. I always see people in and out of your house". I ended up drinking with him for 2 hours before I told him the truth.

    Seriously though, it depends on who asks me. Sometimes when I am traveling I like to tell people I sold my company to Yahoo and retired. For people I will have to talk to or see again, I just tell them I own a bunch of websites online.

    I usually tell people that I do online marketing. "You know how billboards attract people to a business. That's what I do, but online." If they're still interested I explain reputation management.
