  2. The popularity graph for the orkut has gone down a bit in year 2009. Orkut user's are switching to other platforms like facebook. Plus orkut is used intensively in few countries, but other platforms are somehow more popular across a number of countries.

  9. Hey.. this is a good one..it seems the author knows the subject well. It is a good site indeed. Liked it.eh.. good one.I've been working on getting my website up and going for a while now. I like how it's looking but I'm really trying to find some of the top seo companies out there to help me get more traffic. I've heard that this is the way to go so I'm really hoping it works. The one thing I'm not sure about is what to look for in top seo companies I've heard so many things that I'm not sure what the real answer is. I checked out www.bergstrom-seo.com but even there I wasn't 100% sure on what I was looking at. I was hoping that you could give me some good pointers and ideas on what really makes these companies the best in the biz.
