      Hi Leo,
      An age old discussion but still working well. In order to receive higher rank on Google which is mean more traffic, your website must have:
      1. Good content
      2. Good quality inbound links
      3. Active human activity
      These already proved by myself from my previous company and with my Samui Art Gallery site. ;-)

      Thank you for stopping by.

    I would say nothing comes easy when you have a new blog. I am still waiting for the first comment so even if my blog is open for contributors I don’t hold my breath. Most people use the Google toolbar and when they see N/A for the PR they are not wasting the time on my blog. What they don;t really take into account is that any blog can grow up one day and we never know when we just wasted some opportunity. I will follow your blog at Networked Blogs and I hope to get more interaction with other bloggers.
