That was actually a fun article to read, as it enables us to look at what we do practically in our sleep from the point of view of someone who sees it as all new and mysterious.  And of course, throw in a few names of our friends and colleagues, wrap it all up on a large, well-known site, and it makes for a great little article.  :)

@DazzlinDonna I totally agree -- yes, it’s not rocket science, but seems like voodoo to the lay folk.I bookmarked and will be sharing with all our clients since it’s just so accessible.

@willscott - I agree! And not just because that was a sweet intro for our new company, which was totally coincidental and bumped up as a result of the WSJ deadline moving up. Julia really was a virgin website owner that needed the basics, hopefully this will help others, too.

"murky art of search-engine optimization, or SEO."? FAIL. Not only for the weird hyphen usage.
