    I am sick and tired of SEO (search engine optimization). Everyone wants it but no one knows what it is or how it works (it doesn't). It is nothing more than a sales pitch that has infected the minds of lay people, not unlike Web 2.0.

    Most people's understanding of SEO is predicated on the implication that you must somehow game the system to get a high search ranking (e.g. "if I do this to my web page then Google will like it better and rate it higher"). Think about that. Think real hard. Don't hurt yourself. When you are done thinking then read this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page_rank

    Content is king. If you have good content then people will link to your site thereby increasing its page rank.

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I sat through 3 hours of a meeting on this a few months ago. :barf: :barf2: :lame: ...I could go on, but you get the point.
