Without getting too technical, the underlying technology frankly is the ultimate search advertising tool: making it possible for a Blog owner to build ever growing link popularity and internet presence in general for an industry, and to use or contract out that power to feed business to a client or target business of his or her choice.

Make no mistake, Blogs are becoming part …
