Obama’s SEO Counterstrike

Jan 22, 2009   //   by Hackadelic   //   Blog  //  12 Comments

President Barack ObamaI usually stay out of politics, not because I’m indifferent, but because there never seemed to be a big difference between this or that party, this or that candidate, this or that government.

Until Obama came…

Say What?Remember in “The Matrix” when Morpheus says to Neo:

What is the Matrix? Control.
