Random encounter table for SEO
Ian Lurie Dec 6 2011
(In case you’re wondering, ‘percentile die’ let you roll any number from 1-100.)
Feel free to embed this, using this code:
In most role-playing games (think Dungeons & Dragons), there are these things called random encounters. Every now and then, a die roll determines whether you get eaten by a troll, stomped by a royally ticked-off giant, or accosted by pixies.
Hey. Don’t laugh. Pixies are scary.
Somewhere along the way in my lengthy gaming career, I realized that life is actually a long series of random encounters. 15 or so years in SEO has proved it, beyond all doubt. Hence, the table you see above.
Tomorrow: Actual learning. Serious stuff. No more silliness. Honest.
