Jill's Comment: I'm glad to see that many of my Twitter followers agree with me about the importance of SEO. I've found during my numerous redesign consultations that even really good developers can learn a few advanced things that they're not up to date with. They typically appreciate learning from my expertise because they can continue to use that knowledge for their other clients as well.
