Was Shakespeare In Love With SEO?

Historians in Britain have recently made an amazing discovery indicating that Shakespeare not only knew about SEO, he embraced it in his works. This little-known draft of a passage from MacBeth leaves little doubt about his penchant for the search sciences. 

With apologies to the Bard...

"Henceforth be nerds, the first that ever Googled
In such an honour named.  What’s more to search,
Which would be displayed newly with results,
As calling home our topranked site declare
That fled the snares of watchful formula;
Producing forth the ideal arrangement
Of this our phrases and our keywords found,
Who, as ‘tis thought, by links and virulent clicks
Build up our fame; this, and what needful else
That calls upon us, by the grace of Web,
We will perform in profit and in aide."
