Sam Brown has chimed in on the never ending debate that people have on search engine optimization (SEO). Everyday, I hear people say that they want their sites optimized so they appear on Google’s search results so that their product / service gets recognized by people that search for products / services that fall under their keywords. It should be noted that Sam is getting at black hat tricks and petty things like filling up your links with keywords, etc..
