Jargon Ranks!

Last Update: August 01, 2018

JUST A HELPFUL LITTLE TIP THAT I FIND USEFUL.

There is a fine line between understandable words and jargon. However, sometimes going above the norm works to your benefit when it comes to content and keywords!

Jargon are words and phrases used by elite categorized groups of people from a particular profession, trade or subculture (such as the medical field, business field, etc.) that are sometimes not the easiest to comprehend. Nevertheless, they are interesting words and phrases that are spread around in conversations and, most importantly, on the internet!


These are words that would sound foreign and like gobbledygook (also jargon!) to anyone outside the particular occupational groups.

It's funny and so ironic that jargon is also referred to as meaningless talk or writing. So much of these wild words of today are ones that don't make any sense to me, yet I hear them often---so, I know they are popular!

JARGON DEFINED.

Some define these jargon words as babble, gibberish, chatter or slang (informal). But, I feel they blend in nicely with all the digital techy language on the web.

Webster is constantly adding these types of words to their dictionary, however slang or tech savvy they are, because society is accepting them as common and upcoming.


Google is finding them acceptable and intriguing, since they are unusual, yet in tune with today's cultural talk. Plus, they come from a wide array of worldly languages such as Old French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Japanese, Korean and English. ---Some dating back to the mid-17th Century that are finding their way back into society!


These words are known as unintelligible, yet popular. (Go figure!) They provide a shortcut in understanding their meanings.

SO, WHAT TYPE OF WORDS ARE THESE?

Some examples of the words I'm referring to are as follows:

Computing Jargon:

  • cache (local memory)
  • firmware (fixed programs and data)
  • mainframe (powerful computer used by large corporations for bulk data processing)

Internet Jargon:

  • TTYL - Talk to you later
  • BTW - By the way
  • IIRC - If I remember correctly
  • MOTD - Message of the day
  • CYA - See you around
  • FAQ - Frequently asked questions
  • HTH - Hope this helps
  • BFF - Best friends forever
  • IANAL - I am not a lawyer
  • LOL - Laugh out loud

Business Jargon:

due diligence (putting effort into research for the best results

bang for the buck (most for the money)

Medical Jargon:

vitals (the body's important internal organs)

Legal Jargon:

statutes (laws enforced by the Legislative Branch of the government)

SOME MORE FROM A - Z WITH MEANINGS:

Actionable. Taking action

Career-limiting move. Limiting future promotions

Deep dive. Thoroughly examining a business proposal

Eat the elephant one bite at a time. To break down tasks

Flavor of the month. Latest fad in business

Quick fix. Temporary

Upshot. The result

Verbiage. Useless and unnecessary words

Whitewater change. Tail-spinning changes that are not predicted in business

Xerox. Copying

Your take. Opinion

Zombie project. A project that cannot be deleted no matter what

These are just a few interesting examples. You will have to do more research in coming up with unique jargon to fit your content and keywords.

I think you'll find it very interesting to research and use jargon related to your blog articles. They can be instrumental in upping your rankings!

Hallo Erin
I thought you were Busy with the Wedding .good to read your latest . I love the English language which I am led to believe has the Largest Vocabulary but slang swearing newspeak ]Leftwing ]
computer speak and now mobile sms plus jargon have reduced
most English speaking peoples vocabulary to + - 5000 words
I enjoy looking up on Google the meaning of words in the
Miriam Webster dictionary plus the Cambridge dictionary
I Listen to the English and American Pronunciation then look at the meaning then used in a sentence so this was just to tell you I enjoyed your Post . Thank you for Sharing.
Regards David
