Google has announced that the "tag program"  that they have offered will end the end of this month while they are keeping the "boost program".  
I have been using the "tag program" at $35 a month and it has increased by visibility on the web, particularly Google Maps.
At the present time I will not move the boost program as I don't like the feel of purchasing a higher listing than their normal query would … (1 comments)

google: See if Google's change effected you! - 04/12/11 12:36 AM
Over a month ago we introduced an algorithmic improvement designed to help peoplefind more high-quality sites in search. Since then we’ve gotten a lot of positive responses about the change: searchers are finding better results, and many great publishers are getting more traffic.Today we’ve rolled out this improvement globally to all English-language Google users, and we’ve also incorporated new user feedback signals to help people find better search results. In some high-confidence situations, we are beginning to incorporate data about the sites that users block into our algorithms. In addition, this change also goes deeper into the “long tail” of low-quality websites to return … (0 comments)

For $4 a lead how can one go wrong plus they provide another great source to promote my business.

The #1 House Painting Co in St Louis, 314-520-4440, not a referreral service.
To go for the full story about purchasing links:
JC Penney was fantastic in being seen in #1 position by Google....until the truth of "black hat" magic was revealed to them.
Now Penney's is punished and will be watched for a long period of time.  "Black Magic" just isn't worth risking your web visibility.

I could not believe that I could with only a moment of my time make any of my

You can also add this feature also to only a section of the page.
Only a small amount of code is needed to be posted!
<div id="google_translate_element"></div><script> function googleTranslateElementInit() { new google.translate.TranslateElement({ pageLanguage: 'en' }, 'google_translate_element'); } </script><script src="//"></script>

Check you spelling!
If you aren't willing to do that then you don't really want the world to see you at your best.  I know, you are in a hurry, and
want to get your 200 points for the day for writing a blog.  But what are you showing the rest of us?  If you can't spell check
then the information you are offering really wasn't worth your writing.  "vanity is vanity" and so is "200 points is 200 points!"
I wish ActiveRain would not give any credit for comments that include the following:

google: Good day to work on your website! Here are a few tips! - 01/01/11 03:37 AM
Avoid Flash - spiders do not work with Flash
Flash intros although nice aren't appreciated by most viewers
Make sure that you use the ALT tag with pictures
Fresh Content - Google and the other search engines love FRESH CONTENT
If you don't have a blog .. create one
Link to others only if they are related and have not link to fellow realtors!
When you wish spiders to see your links...particularly back to your home page be sure to use <b> </b>
   bold tags 
Never make text extremely small or invisible.  The search engines might in turn make … (5 comments)
