Words came via the man that used to be known as content_muse. Anthony Pensabene has now retired from the world of SEO is now pursuing a career in the world of magic. I would point you to his site but that appears to be closed. I tried to contact his PR Manager, the world famous Shakespeare doll but he hasn’t seen Anthony for some time. Anthony is around, if you miss him you can drop him an email or chat to him on skype, just don’t ask him how the sawing a lady in half trick is done.
