    I really never understood why many people use bikini models in their banner ads promoting their SEO Services... I have noticed that this is pretty common especially here on BHW... From my personal opinion, unless I am looking to buy a nice lingerie or bikini for my girlfriend, this ad will never tempt me to pay for an SEO service...

    Can someone elaborate on why this advertising strategy is quite common?? :D

    I know what you mean. If anything I think it makes me less likely to use a service. It just seems like a cheap advertising tactic.

    Definitely did. But on the other hand, I keep in mind that I am never going to buy from that provider for using such a cheap advertising method... An image of a few 100 dollar bills replacing this model is going to be a much better way to promote an SEO offer from my opinion. Afterall, we are all looking for the money here.... Chicks will follow anyway.. lol

    I know, right??? I double that.

    Oh all this time I thought the hot Victoria Secret model wanted to sell me SEO. Just makes me want to punch her in the vagina.

    David's watch was not working. He remembered passing a little shop with clocks and watches in the window, so he took the watch in for repair.
    "Can I help you?" asked the man behind the counter.
    "I want this watch repaired," said David.
    "I'm sorry. I don't repair watches."
    "Well, how much for a new one then?" asked David.
    "I don't sell watches."
    "You don't sell watches?"
    "No, I don't sell watches."
    "Clocks, you sell clocks then? How much for a clock?"
    "I don't sell clocks."
    David was getting exasperated. "You don't sell watches, you don't sell clocks?"
    "No, I'm a mohel," replied the man.
    "Then why do you have all those clocks and watches in the window?"
    "If you were a mohel, tell me, what would you put in your window?"

    Would rented lamborghinis work better with middle aged men sitting in them?
    Mind you it's not a regulated industry fortunately.

    Maybe it's like why car ads have a woman in a bikini with words along the lines of "test drive this", are we talking the car or the woman. Same with SEO ads probably, try the service or try the woman!?!?

    I may or may not be saying T0mmy is or isn't a pimp, I believe he isn't not one.
