... and they must be encouraged to keep penalizing artificially
enhanced rankings and rewarding those that play by the rules.
Unfortunately, the rule book is so contradictory in nature. The reality
also exists that the search engine continue to reward the spammers.

It is tough choice for an SEO to make when deciding on a strategy for a
new web site promotion client. I am running out ways to level the
playing field myself to find ways to beat out the enhanced

SEOs seem to be doing the trendy manipulation tactics in order to
attain a significant Internet presence; however temporary and feeble.
They choose for the web site clients to run the risk of jeopordizing a
web site's health. Most have not the innovativeness to invent a more
powerful plan that adhere to the wishy washy rules.

The alternatives for most web site owners is bleak. Pay more money to
the search engines in advertising is an option. Usually they take the

In many countries including Canada, there exists better business
bureaus. My neighbours who get ripped off by a local business complain
to the BBB and the wrongdoer is punished, frequently in the form of a
fine. The real bad ones get their business licenses revoked. Canadians
are shocked when they get scammed. They are not used to buying a hollow
loaf of bread. They are easy prey to the Internet manipulators. These
are my neighbours that I go fishing with and sit around the fire pits
at nights freely singing songs at the full moon.

Not the same on the Internet, different rules in different countries.
Some countries don't even have child labour laws never mind business
ethics commissions. How can my neighbours in Canada who have business
web sites compete fairly in the organics against other businesses whose
countries who have no business ethics?
