Yesterday I went to my local grocery store for lunch because I had a coupon for a free deli sandwich. I went in, ordered, and while the gentleman behind the counter created my sandwich masterpiece, he informed me that they currently have a promo for a free 20 oz soda to go with my sandwich.

Probably not, because the chances that you'll make it thru the experience are pretty slim.Believe it or not, your Google pay-per-click campaigns are exactly (well, a lot) like the airplane landing described above. Homebuyers and sellers who are searching Google for real estate in your area are the passengers on the plane. The runway (1 comments)
Is flash really that bad for SEO? - 06/07/10 12:09 PM
First of all, what is Flash? Flash is a tool that web developers use to add dynamic text and video to websites. According to Wikipedia, "Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash) is a multimedia platform used to add animation, video, and interactivity to Web pages. Flash is frequently used for advertisements and games." And according to many, Flash is SEO's kryptonite. Search engines cannot index flash content and by including valuable content in flash or by using flash introductions, you might as well kiss the search engines goodbye. In 2008 Google and Adobe (the creator of Flash), announced that Flash is indexable (2 comments)
