    Sorry Verona =) If it’s any consolation you’re on my resources list as a must-read blog in this space.

    BTW Awesome post on using LiveInternet for keyword traffic stats. Hopefully I can throw that to my programmers to play with this week. I may swap you tool access for beer next time you’re in town ;-)
