Hmmmm - funny - I have a guy by me that is ranking like crazy for mold. Like a 60 mile radius in towns that he probably can't even find. His site is full of (pretty much) dup content. Total crap. Hmmmm? Backlinks still work - have to be used correctly and be good links. Got a Russian blog network behind you - bye bye!

Google is always closing that gap so its always best to play by the rules.. google gives you the rules and regulations they want for website ranking, just follow them and add content that applies to what you do. Fresh original content will always be KING..

Yeah it's gonna be funny when his website get banned to. I try to run all aspects of my business without the "spammer" shortcut mentality, If it takes it a little longer or involves more work so be it, at least your playing by the rules and keeping your dignity. It's all fun and games until you get caught. lol.

So I'm still wrapping my head around "the rating game sponsored by google." So they have created a need (evidently a must have for many) to hold the top spot in their rankings. A top ranking means? The busiest website? More hits? Views? Customer satisfaction scores? Combination of?
Do you pay google to get a better score? Or is that what the Seo company does?
I totally get that this is a new age with marketing print media through the newspaper, phone book and Tv guide being almost obsolete because that isn't where the customers go any longer. So now instead of spending 600.00 a month or so a nice yellow page ad you spend it on SEO? I'm skeptical because google seems to prosper best by changing the rules. SEO ranking is a pretty low priority for me at this moment but I still see it moving up the list if I expand my territory.
