It’s the time of year when awards are handed out for jobs well done. The search engine marketing industry likes to recognize people and web sites in this way. It’s easy to suggest nominees when the category their work or web site falls into fits neatly into a niche.

Wishing my friends, subscribers and loyal readers a peaceful, laughter-filled holiday season. I may have some time next week to drop in here, but if not, stay tuned.
