Ogling at Google
This morning I found that there was yet another thread on the Cosmic Village to catch my eye, and this one concerned the popular Google Search Directory and its 'browser enhancing' tool bar.

Search Engine Optimization: Mirror Sites
Since I have heard a lot of talk about mirror sites on the boards, as well as questions about doorway pages and gateway pages and what is a good search engine plan, I thought it time to put some ideas down on paper.
