What that meant was that as of 10:00 am this morning(Thursday, January 15th) 410 websites have picked up, republished, or linked to the release. Among the most notable were Reuters, Business Week, LexisNexis, MSNBC and the online edition of the Houston Chronicle.

To be fair, however, all that glitters is not always gold. Among the 410 several were duplicates. Infopig, for example, came up at the bottom of at least three search results pages. Amazingly enough, Infopig, by the way, is an impressive database of company news. In addition a number of the 410 serps actually turned out to be links to other keyword related sites.
