The thing that grabbed me is that they claim to have 10,000 clients, and that their line is that they use these "landing pages" *wink wink* to get their clients on "Google's top 10-list". OK, the math isn't adding up to me.

Let's just take one type of business. If you're really doing this client a service, you're going to attempt to get them traffic for their industry's most searched-for phrase, right? OK, now you have 10,000 clients. Are you going to tell me that there is no business group that you don't have more than 10 clients in? So, the 11th client you take on in that business get's the shaft?

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it's probably going to get ground up and put in a can with a spam label on it...

OMG, I'm reading this article as I'm posting and I can't believe what I just read!

"Powers says Ohrum failed to understand that getting banned by Google is part of the business."

Yeah, that's a good attitude for your clients...

OK, I'll shut up and let someone else get a word in edgewise.
