I have been studying, applying, and giving advice on Internet marketing for quite some time now (years, even). I'm amazed at how much there is to know and how often this technology changes! Lately, I've been wondering about images and their role in search engine marketing. The images you have on your website have long been known to be useful for keyword positioning on many search engines: many engines will include file names and ALT tags in their rankings.   Filenames are the names of the files themselves (i.e. "/images/lobsterphoto.jpg") and the ALT tag is a portion of the "img src" tag...

Could there be life on other planets? It turns out this is not an easy question to answer at all because, for starters, scientist still argue over the definition of the term 'life'. Since a complete discussion on which is the best way to define it would be way off-topic, we will use this widely accepted definition instead: "a condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally".
