    One think that is a lesser known tip is utilizing Google Rich snippets on your site.

    First, read through the Microformat Documentation at microformats org,
    then, google 'google rich snippets'

    Here's some example code for a hReview:

    Code:
    <div class="hreview">
     <span><span class="rating">5</span> out of 5 stars</span>
     <h4 class="summary">Crepes on Cole is awesome</h4>
     <span class="reviewer vcard">Reviewer: <span class="fn">Tantek</span> - 
     <abbr class="dtreviewed" title="20050418T2300-0700">April 18, 2005</abbr></span>
     <div class="description item vcard"><p>
      <span class="fn org">Crepes on Cole</span> is one of the best little 
      creperies in <span class="adr"><span class="locality">San Francisco</span></span>.
      Excellent food and service. Plenty of tables in a variety of sizes 
      for parties large and small.  Window seating makes for excellent 
      people watching to/from the N-Judah which stops right outside.  
      I've had many fun social gatherings here, as well as gotten 
      plenty of work done thanks to neighborhood WiFi.
     </p></div>
     <p>Visit date: <span>April 2005</span></p>
     <p>Food eaten: <span>Florentine crepe</span></p>
    </div>
    
    That shows up with on Google with bright orange stars, obviously increasing CTR

    The question is whether you your privacy or the money in your pocket more

    There's a price for everything.

    There's a recent WP Plugin that puts rich snippet stars on your search results. Wonder if a Google profile is required for that? I hope it shows up in the download area.
