Vince Vaughn Hollywood Career Goes Belly-Up - Forced to pose for stock photography to keep Bel-Air Mansion from FORECLOSURE!

Oh sure... the folks at +Adweek are trying to put this off as some kind of joke but we all know that Vince's career has been on the rocks lately.

With this on your resume you can kiss your Oscar dreams goodbye Vince!

Good luck to my son and the rest of the lads at Portsmouth RFC U14s who are playing Havant in the Hampshire Bowl finals today.

Unfortunately, I'm going to miss as coincides with day 2 of my rugby coaching course. Just hope lots of photos taken! #rugby   #rugbyunion   #portsmouth   #hampshire

A really excellent article from +Andrea Beltrami if, like me, you're a fan of tools and resources that help with productivity... and life in general. 

Thanks to +Randy Milanovic for the share. I'm saving this one using some of my favourite resources, Pocket with IFTTT to also send to Evernote. I know... :-)
 
"The folks mentioned in this post are not egotistical, fame whores who think they are better than or above anyone else. These folks don’t walk around referring to themselves as royalty, aren’t bragadocious about being an influencer and don’t let vanity titles define them. These folks worked their asses off to get to the pause-licious places they are, and don’t in anyway attribute their entrepreneurial success to a couple resources. These folks are by no means the end all, be all list of online and social rockstars, they are simply the ones that have contributed to my journey of social badassery."

Couldn't have stated it better +Andrea Beltrami. Well done.

Good news for AdWords users (who also have Android phones). 

Never be bored on holiday again with the new AdWords app from Google.

> Want to check your CTR whilst on the beach? No problem.
> Need to review your average positions whilst sipping a cocktail? Sorted.
> Want to impress other holiday makers with your impressive conversion rates? Absolutely! 

To complete the inner geek, take a Chromecast and hope the hotel have a large screen so you can share with the entire room. :-)

I gave a presentation last week for business owners in my local area.

The aim was simply to give an overview of Google Analytics but I wrote this post to highlight two key areas - account ownership and making use of conversion goals. #googleanalytics   #sme  

Thanks to +MarkVang.com for sharing my post. 
 
Google Analytics – Account Ownership
via +Adrian Bold +Bold Internet Ltd 

With Google, you may well have many Google services that you access with a username, which is usually your primary email address. You should never need to share this with a third party. Anyone needing access to your Analytics account can be granted access by you – assuming you have full permissions.

#googleanalytics  
Understand with Google Analytics who has admin rights to your account. Make use of conversion goals and track what it is you want to achieve with your site.

Thank you, +Karen Murray! I have an idea to do one on AdWords before any more Analytics. Better to focus on what I actually do, me thinks! :-)

Good news for AdWords users.

I use AdWords every day and can sometimes struggle to keep up with Google's product developments. If you're just an occasional AdWords user, it must be very difficult; this should help. #adwords
 
Did you know that over 200 products and feature updates launched in AdWords last year? With so many updates, many advertisers have shared that it can be hard to keep track of all the changes. We heard you.

Starting today, you will find a chronological list of key AdWords updates, right in the Education tab of the Help Center. This “New AdWords features” page [http://goo.gl/3fyeo3] shows you what’s happening in AdWords in a single place: from reporting improvements to new ad format launches to important policies.

We’re also committed to making our users better at AdWords.  A big way that we’re helping day-to-day practitioners reach their AdWords potential is with our other new page on the Help Center: the Google Best Practices series [http://g.co/googlebp]. This series, Google's official advice on AdWords, can help form the foundation of your paid search strategies.

We hope these new pages make staying up to date with AdWords a little easier and becomes your “one-stop shop” for learning about all our innovations and Best Practices. Bookmark them now!

Story

Quite good at Google AdWords. Lousy at design. Master of understatement.
Introduction
I'm married with two sons. Originally from Portsmouth and still live close by in Whiteley, Hampshire.

My first job was in the Army. I joined far too young and sometimes think I may have still been in had I joined up later. Ho, hum.

I love sport having played rugby and football when younger. I now help with coaching my youngest son's rugby team (Portsmouth Juniors RFC). 

I'm a big fan of Depeche Mode having seen them first at Portsmouth Guildhall in 1982! 

My first experience with the Internet was in around 2000 when I was volunteered to create a website for my rugby club. I soon realised my design skills were non existent but I was intrigued by how sites achieved higher rankings and that got me started in SEO and subsequently PPC. I first started using Google AdWords in 2002.

My company is Bold Internet Ltd (boldinternet.co.uk), offering search engine marketing services for UK businesses. We're a Google Partner and help business owners who may be struggling with AdWords with consultancy, optimisation and management services.

For more personal views, I have my own site at adrianbold.com and, of course, various social media channels.

Oh, and I've never seen Star Wars! :-)

I've been going for years along with my sons and we all think it's great. We even travel past three other hairdressers on route to get there. All of the hairdressers are really nice and do extremely good hair cuts. It also offers excellent value for money in a modern and clean environment. Conversations can be fun, especially if discussing food with grated cheese a particular favourite. :-)

We joined earlier in 2014 having originally dismissed the idea of joining when under the previous ownership (the older reviews will be referring to that time!). Now the new owners are in place, even in just a few months we've seen big improvements with new greenkeepers and equipment to get the golf course in shape. The staff are welcoming and the new sports bar is ideal to have a relaxing drink and something to eat after playing golf. The food can take a while to arrive but is always worth the wait! The gym is well equipped and you really get a sense that the owners want to carry on developing the club for the members.
