    There is actually a website,"The History Of SEO", that helps to answer this question. In 1995, Danny Sullivan wrote The Webmaster's Guide to Search Engines, and started Search Engine Watch in 1996. Bruce Clay started his business in 1996, but no one was using the term "search engine optimization" at the time. In 1999, Bruce Clay was a speaker at the first Search Engine Strategies Conference, organized by Danny Sullivan.
    According to Wikipedia, the term " search engine optimization" was first used by John Audette of Multimedia Marketing Group.

    This is really a very good information, which I got accidentally as I was not looking for this and have never thought about the history that who has started or anything like that.

    You are the father of SEO. If you are doing always white hat SEO then nobody can harm you even not any updates of google. neither mattcutt nor bruce clay stop you to get rank in search engine so in my opinion YOU are father of SEO.

    The OP is looking either for the first person to use the process that we now know as SEO, or the first person to use the term. He is not interested in platitudes or playing word games.

    Where did you find this information, Can you reference an article that refers to Bruce Clay using the term "father of SEO"? In my first post, you'll notice I found another person who was using similar processes a year before Bruce Clay, and even when Bruce Clay started, no one was using the term "search engine optimization", so could not be using the term "SEO".

    According to Wikipedia, John Audette was the first person to use the term "search engine optimization". Did you find another source that says that Bruce Clay used it first? Where did you find it? Can you back up your information?
