I am not a big YouTube person. Every once in awhile, I will watch something like Charlie the Unicorn or Lebron James high school highlight reels when I am super bored. Today I had a web developer friend send over a link to a video called Design Coding. Obviously, many of you beat me to this video because as I am writing this it has nearly 445,000 views.
The video is from the Poetic Prophet (AKA The SEO Rapper) The rap is actually pretty funny. I have seen a couple other videos from the SEO Rapper but I hadn’t come across this one. Some of my favorite lines are:
“Don’t use italics use emphasis”
“Don’t duplicate it or you might face a litigation”
“Your photoshop functions, slice that design, do your layout with divs, make sure that its aligned”
“Please don’t use tables even though they work fine, when it comes to indexing they give search engines a hard time”
“The competition will get bitter, you’ll shine like glitter”
It isn’t every day you hear a rap song about web design. In fact I have only heard a couple and they were mostly done by white guys skinnier than I am. In all honestly I can’t believe this exists but since it does you have to check it out. If you’re really bored check out some of his other videos. I know some of you may have seen them already but if you’re like me and missed out on the SEO Rapper thus far, you need to check him out.
