Bye Bye Love

Apple today sent their sub-$1000 MacBook to Apple graveyard. The links for the white MacBooks have vanished from Apple's website and now redirect to the main Mac landing page

The best time to think about how people are going to find you on the web is before you start. The second best time would be right now!

Don't let search engine optimization be more than just something you bolt on to your site by your cousin who has a neighbor who knows 'a bit of this web stuff'. Creating a SEO friendly site should be a “day one” design consideration and a proper SEO Consultant on hire at the get-go can really make or break your marketing efforts.
