sure i have been getting post stuff from google for years, and I know it's easy to by cynical, and point fingers. Google has made me 10's of millions of £££ in revenues and I am very gratefull. I can't complain - and therefore I am not. Without them I would have not had the business I have had. What goes around comes around I guess. Pure white hat, dedicated Internetologist, one time pioneer, realising that there is no longer an opportunity to really understand the engine. Anyone who thinks they want to put all their eggs in the google basket will go to an early grave... first you start frowning a lot, then you get some stomach cramps, more grey hair than you would like, next something neurological like tinnitus from stress.. and then you say fk'em. Make hay while the sun shines. get in and out as quick as you can, dont flog a dead horse and other life reinforcing cliches. (sorry if this adds nothing to the thread - pls delete as appropriate - but to be frank, over the years I have every variant of google slap going... and one or two pats).
