Knowledge to Business (K2B) is an update service
for business owners and professionals. Twice a 
month you will be e-mailed links for business articles 
that have stood out as submissions to BPubs.com
[ URL: http://www.bpubs.com ]. 


Sorry about the lag in newsletter service. Things
got a bit overwhelming over the holidays and the
transition to the new year. The business publishers
didn't slow down while I was away, so here's the
recap of the better BPubs submissions from the last 
month (or so... ). 

Enjoy the articles,  Steve

You may have caught the BPubs homepage tagline
and wondered "what's that all about?"  Well... BPubs 
is crusading for a miniature revolution in the way 
search engines work - it's called "Content Indexing". 
You can read more about why indexing 'only content'
may become a trend in the way search engines are 
changing at the BPubs "about this site" page.
