Today’s travels took me to:

No Nonsense Debra – Will The Real Search Engine Blog Please Stand Up?

No Nonsense Aaron – Why SEMPO is Worse than the Defunct Search Marketing Associations

SEMPO saved my life. If they hadn’t sent my wife an SEO who got her site penalized she probably never would have found me, bought my book, started chatting with me, and saved my life.

No Nonsense Marty – Arrogance & Writing in Self-Center Person
