Few things are sadder than crossword puzzles resembling a flip-phone game of snake, and few things more satisfying than dense, witty puzzles built for a specific and personal knowledge. We’ve aimed for the latter. Not every answer is SEO-related, of course, but there are plenty of industry-insider components, and more than one joke.
Just print the PDF to get started—crossword puzzles are meant to be solved by hand. (Go with pen; fortune favors the bold.) If you think you’re too busy to do this now, justify the diversion as requisite analog time, the only thing SEOs lack more than sleep.
Congrats to Walter J. for winning the $50 Amazon gift card! Of course, you can still print and solve the puzzle at your leisure. When you’re ready, check your answers here.
Tips for the uninitiated: Clues mirror answers, so plural clues yield plural answers, abbreviated clues mean abbreviated answers, and question marks in clues suggest the answer is a joke of some sort, usually a play on words.
