    Meh – SEO Jedi is boring. Now SEO Sith Lord sounds definitely more interesting… Come to the dark side – we have cookies ;)

    However I like “don’t underestimate the power of Excel” young Jedi part, as it’s amusing and true at the same time ;)

    P.S. Dear Reader – if You’re looking for a good job and You’re now wondering if this is one, just look at SEO Chicks blog – Your search is over.
