    Hi Ruth, I just discovered your blog through your interview with Claire. I just started my own blog and will definitely check out your book. Your website is great. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow- thanks for all the resources! You are truly generous in what you share with your readers. Thank you!
    Would it be possible to get a larger visual of the Chapter 4 examples of optimizing title tags, meta keywords and meta descriptions? What shows up on my Kindle is very small and nearly impossible to read. Thanks for considering!
