Brodie Clark posted an interesting poll on Twitter asking if the SEO community agreed or not. The poll asked do you agree or disagree that “if you’re selling SEO as a service, it is important that your own website has good SEO.”
The results showed that 75% agreed with this statement, while 25% disagreed. There were 1,450 responses to the thread, 16.6% of which just wanted to see the results – so I took those out to do these calculations.
Here is the poll:
