web 20: Does a good Web 2.0 site "Trap" visitors? - 07/06/08 03:17 PM
My friend and webguy, Hal, mentioned I might reconsider how easily I offer multiple links in neighborhood profile blogs that take visitors off my site.  And I jumped up onto my personal Web 2.0 soapbox.  Hal should know by now that I always carry a soapbox with me, but he seemed to have forgotten.
