Using Good Friday to Promote Your Business Unethical?

Let me start by telling you that today is, if you didn’t know, Good Friday. The Friday before Easter.
Good Friday, also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday or Black Friday is observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Christ and his death on the cross at Calvary.

This will not be a religious rant or post just an observation about what I think is right and wrong or just on the fence.

As I was reading a few blogs this morning and looking at some internet posts I got taken back by some ignorance that litters the web trying to monopolize on the word ‘Good Friday.’

Good Friday has nothing to do with Twitter’s Follow Friday or Great Friday Savings on the newest article submitter or even Good Deal Friday at the local beverage center.

Verticlemeasures.com said, “So, on this Good Friday be productive and take the time to keep up with all that is new in the world of SEO. And buy medications remember, every Friday is a good Friday for SEO!” 

They also wrote,  ”what does SEO have to do with Good Friday? Absolutely nothing as a matter of fact, but I figured I’d take advantage of today and write a little ditty about all the good things Friday brings to the world of SEO.” 

Look, I don’t walk on eggshells and I am certainly not PC but let’s have a little class & respect.  I’m not saying they are bad people or anything negative besides the fact that they could do a better job of copy writing without bringing into the use of the daily hot PPC word that people are searching for today, Good Friday. 

I’m sure there will be many that are going to talking about Easter without even thinking about what it really means. I don’t fault those that have Chritmas sales or anything like that but once they start showing a nativity scene with Marth Stewart linens in the cradle….I’m outta there!
