Both Searchengineland and another blog about search engines have stories about this blog, this morning, and a review I posted in November about my personal trainer, Von Ray Johnson. Because I put his phone number on there, along with a review of his services, Google’s robots have apparently picked up the information and are using it as a review. In the world of technology, this is big news. For me, of course, the only question is: Will it bring me more power, more influence, and more control?

    Well the answer is yes…sort of. :)

    Certainly the links you got are good…and it points out the “power” of a well done hyperlocal blog like yours to influence the standing in Google of local businesses.

    Is that enough to satisfy your “cravings”?

    Think I could get better billing than “another blog”? :)
