What is a PSA?

A public service announcement, commonly known by the PSA acronym, is a message spread in the interest of the public. The objectives of PSAs are to raise awareness and change public attitudes, opinions, or even behavior towards an issue. These messages can be instructional, inspirational, or even shocking to elicit emotion and action.

SEO = Search Engine Optimization

Background

Bot edit note: “Removing decoda URLs, since the site has seemingly become a disreputable SEO farm. See https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/MBBE-22

Goto https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/MBBE-22
Find there “weird SEO sites […] more SEO sites” but its meaning only implied (“Google Analytics ID […] Google Adsense […] Adsense ID is used”)

Goto MB Documentation search for ‘SEO’, get 1 relevant hit:

Aha, ‘search engine optimization’ matches ‘SEO’.

Goto Wikipedia search hit article search engine optimization for verification of meaning, though still supposed.

(By the way, on that MetaBrainz contact page in the background, the “SEO optimization” is an ugly RAS syndrome carrier.)

I did a…, well…, PR, for this, some time ago. :wink:
