How many of you guys think SEO as Compulsary Subject (like general knowledge) Should be mandatory in Schools, Colleges, and Universities.
Ha I don't think SEO should be a mandatory subject in school. lol Marketing on the other hand... maybe?
Any reason why it should be?
I think teaching children to correctly use Google is important, although I'm not sure about SEO. It's quite surprising just how many people cannot search efficiently.
I hope not. But I think this would be best for those courses in marketing and advertising since it can be done on both offline and online.
Can't be taught is schools...2+2 will always be 4 where as seo is constantly changing.
Just because it is changing doesn't mean it can't be taught. However it is only a subset of marketing and most people don't think about it much.
I second those who think that we should teach kids to use web search and to filter out 'bad' sites from 'good' sites.
What are you even talking about people? Are you really that lost in your world that you do not realize what is happening with young generations? Young kids, 4, 5 years old forced to wear glasses just because they spent their entire infancy in front of a computer. Parents who give their kids tablets so they can avoid responsibility of raising said children. How is that even socially viable? Do you want to live in a country of blind people? And you want to force them to have additional classes that will bound them to a computer? And then you wonder why there are guys I their 30s who never scored with a girl. I will tell you why. Its because they do not have basic social skills. I never needed SEO or Google instructions or classes and yet, I always managed to find the necessary stuff. In that sense, why don't we teach our kids how to run, how to turn on the oven, how to vacuum their home (necessary life skills). I think they know far more about Google then I had back in the day. Not even economy should be mandatory knowledge, let alone SEO. Do not impose your choices on your children. It is nice that you like SEO but that is your preference, not theirs.

We are going a long way. I think they should teach basic economics in schools or at least basic skills on how to manage a budget.
I don`t know what they are teaching in your country, but 10 years ago in high school I was learning pascal, YES...PASCAL, so to even think of SEO or any new technology to be taught in the schools of Romania would be a dream.
We don`t even have sex education in school, we don`t learn how to do CPR but we do have religion classes that brainwash our kids, so as people said above me, there are so many subjects waiting in line that I don`t see SEO being taught in school in the near future. (damn I love the educational system from my country)
