Google Takes Over – Search on Their Terms, Not Yours

Two big things have hit the search engine streets from Google’s front door that may change the history of how we get our search results forever – and that’s not an exaggeration.

Many who pick up knowledge of SEO around the Net jump on directory submissions because it sounds like an easy form of SEO.
