A quick word on format use – I found that when I moved to the “shorter” format, i.e. with no descriptions, company names, or anything else, my traffic went up.  Based on these metrics I’ve decided to keep this format going forward.  If anyone has any great objections e-mail me through the form on the “Contact Us” page and I’ll consider going back to the longer format.
