Like An SEO Myspace…

Today I’m writing in italics, cool. I’ve had an idea about creating pages about SEO’s who are really proud of certain work that they have done. As Chris said a bit like an SEO Myspace… I’m not 100% sure what I’m after but I want to create personal pages where people can talk about whatever […]

Anatomy of a Successful Page…
