    No offense, Will, I have to agree with Ash. I don't think I would call SEMPO an accreditation. It is just a membership organization, plus the organization's name is meaningless to customers. It is kind of like the old "Best of the Web" site that was popular in the 1990s. All you had to do to earn a Best of the Web design award was to sign up for membership. I saw some really crappy web sites with that award logo.

    From the SEMPO web site:
    A Note to Site Visitors
    SEMPO is an industry organization designed to promote search engine marketing in general, not an accreditation body for SEM firms. Membership in SEMPO is not a guarantee of a particular firm's capabilities, nor does it signify industry approval or disapproval of their practices.
    SEO is an industry with thousands of people with no marketing, IT or programming experience who call themselves SEO experts or gurus. That is why the industry has such a bad reputation. I do not see how it is possible to provide expert SEO services unless you are a very experienced programmer who understands how search engines operate.

    The industry is so fragmented that I don't think that any organization could step up to the plate with a bonafide accreditation that would be accepted throughout the industry.

    I am not an Expert Programmer but that doesn't mean that I am a Bad SEO . Does that ? I think it won't as I have proven myself as an SEO with participating in so many SEO contests and reaching the top position in a couple of them. I also have proven track record in my CV which makes me a better SEO professional. I can say that programing skills can help an SEO guy. An SEO should be good with HTML as it might come handy but that is not a must. Experience in SEO field can come really useful when you are trying to rank for highly competitive keywords.

    I don't disagree at all. I agree that, in reality, it's a bunch of hooey.

    Still, I believe the SEMPO badge can be useful for closing some SEO clients.
