The bottom line for any business is the bottom line. For a long time this has been overlooked for anyone that does seo and has taken the search engines for granted. This is the very reason you will see paying sites moving ahead of free ones. Think about what was posted by Lenny2, a lot more Craigslist and Ebay than there used to be. What they have in common is fresh content with new names popping up. Also, remember that Google is trying to find the key to local searches. Seo will never be able to hide that. You may find that a company comes up first by someone doing a search in California, because the company is based in California, and it may come up on page 5 in Maine. Again, now matter what, fresh content will be the key in the future.
