This Week In SEO – 9/28/07

Danny Sullivan turned 42 this week, the same age as me I might add, and Google turned 9. Matt provides Google’s horoscope for the coming months based on their September 27th birth date.

You’re possibly wondering who would be dumb enough to think an after dinner treat is worth that much money. But the resort is not asking if “The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence” is worth $14,500.
