    Links can be the key.
    But do not go overboard.
    Google will block you.


    Compelling content
    Is supposed to be the key.
    Just don’t be evil.


    Write for the reader,
    not the search engines. Link to
    relevant content.


    Chasing the algo’s
    is not the way to rank high.
    Shame on you Penney’s.

    True SEO’s are
    not snake oil salesmen. It’s true –
    Black Hats are spammers.

    Results? Not so much
