    Seriously Barry there are hundreds of sites that do this and they have been doing it longer than this guy. This article seems contrived or bought or something.

    Nice article, but if you need to find-out how to get high quality traffic on HIgh CPC Keywords by doing Local SEO you should take a look to the next article:

  • Gestoffle Van Eerden-Vark

    It is actually appalling that this article is allowed to be published; clearly SEL is associating itself with spammy and affiliate based websites. You have lost my vote.

    Nice as always… But I think need little correction in the content- in the very first paragraph “Most expensive keyword you can (by) need to be as BUY”. Right!
