This is fairly entertaining... Via a WebmasterWorld & DigitalPoint Forums threads, a blog owner received an email from a online store owner, requesting he lower his ranking for a keyword phrase the blog is ranking well for. In short, the store owner feels he should rank better than the blog, because he is selling the item on his site and the blog is only informational and not transactional. If this person knew anything about Google, he would know things tend to work the other way around.
You have to understand Dean that an online business should be higher in Google than a blog.
Don’t forget that Google is a business as well, they obviously make more money from other businesses than they do from blogs, so it is in their interest that I am higher than you for certain searches.
I have also contacted my lawyer about this issue, so you should expect a letter in the post very soon.
I expect a reply soon.
I won't quote from the forums, but I think they tend to agree with me on this.
