At Eyeglasses.com we recently hired a new IT person who had attended one of the 2006 SNIA Europe Academy programs before moving to the US. He has been most helpful in getting our e commerce site up and running, working with our SEO expert so that our pages are ranking high in the search. Seeing pages such as round glasses at eyeglasses.com coming onto the first page in a search is quite exhilerating. Can't wait for our most highly competitive term, egeglasses, to get to page one.
