There was a bit of a miscommunication though: searchmonkey will not help 
you with your ranking, it will make it more obvious though what the 
results of your company/site are. If we offered a product that helped 
you with your ranking the game would be on, people try to play the algos 
a lot as it is :)

There will be a "searchmonkey developer breakfast" in our London offices 
soon, if you want to come around, drop me a line.
