Talk of the town
SEOs are criminals - well, another week another drama huh? This week we have more fun borne from SMX. While not entirely geeky (more link bait and tin foil) but since I decided to jump in as did my fav gals at Bruce Clay (Hi Virginia and Sus'!)... we not ride along and add your thoughts;
SEOs are not criminals they're the enemy! - ...because I just couldn't help myself :0)
