: why not? i dont see how we're going to get better
: placement by re-rranging keywords in the URL.

believe me when i say that what goes in the url has the most weight as far
as the search engines are concerned.  if we can whittle the url down to just
the relevant parts, along with a properly formed url, we'll get higher
ratings in the search engines.  most don't give a shit about meta tags.
most don't give a shit about alt text or comments.  what they really look at
anymore is the title of the page and the url.

i think you missed my point about the rant so i'll just come out and say it.
we had a meeting about efficiency and deadlines.  it was a complete waste of

extremely inefficient, ironic since that was the very thing they were trying
to address.  the meeting did have some good points in that we all have a
better idea of where we're at with projects, especially management.

i'm all for distributing the workload - once we've got more of this thing in
place.  there are still some core elements that need to be addressed before
they can be explained to people that are unfamiliar with the way we do
