OT: Website Ranking

From: Jim Wells 

I have a client that has used ineedhits.com for years. I has worked well 
but their pricing has gone up each year and some change at Google 3 
weeks ago has changed their placement in a negative manner. Can anyone 
suggest a service that works well for them and what the cost is ?


=============================================================== From: John Aldrich ------------------------------------------------------ Quoting Jim Wells : I forget the name of the company, but WUTC has a corporate sponsor/advertiser that does that. They mention "Google Ad Words" etc in their sponsorship message. Might call them and ask for the name of the company.

=============================================================== From: Lee Walker ------------------------------------------------------ Anyone that uses artificial ways to raise rankings instead of just making good content deserves all they get. You shouldn't use these "services", you should do some basic SEO optimization and write good content. It's a game of cat and mouse, and Google will always win due to the resources it can bring to bear chasing down SEO farmers. They pick on these link farmers one at a time and squish them out of existence. These guys are snake oil salesmen.

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ I did surprisingly well just by linking to stuff I thought my readership would like. Post a few times a week and have a good aggregator. And I don't know jack about SEO, but I'm researching for next project. Hey Lee when the next drupal chat & chew? ----- Original Message -----
