How To Get to the Top of Google - The Plain Englis&hellip by Tim Kitchen

This book is excellent (spelling errors and American-isms aside....) and contains lots of useful, easy to follow and well structured tips and advice to make your website stand out in Google searches.

Despite the fact that this drama has yet to even be shown on BBC2, it's advance screenings and reviews have all been excellent and I for one am very much looking forward to seeing it this week. I must object to the previous reviewer's somewhat offensive remarks about a 'missed opportunity'. WILLIAM HARTNELL died in 1975 and RICHARD (or Dicky since the poster and he were clearly on such terms) HURNDALL died in 1984, so quite what opportunity was missed here I did not know. Honestly, if you have nothing constructive or sensible to write, keep it zipped and leave the reviews to people who are knowledgeable and literate enough to be able to contribute something meaningful.
