Title Tag & Meta Description Length—Toss Out Your Abacus

…and Stop Using Character Counters!

Ok, I'm still hearing and seeing #SEO  professionals discussing Title Tag and Meta description length based on a character count! I'm pretty sure this topic has been beaten to the ground, not to mention there have been plenty of individuals who have tested this, such as +Bill Hartzer , but I suppose it is not yet common knowledge across the industry. But in case people haven't heard, Google Does Not Base Title Tag and Meta Description Length By 64–70 Characters.

To state it more clearly, here's another article by +Arthur Enke , http://goo.gl/FjjoO5.

ScreamingFrog is using Title Tag length up to 512px and Meta Description length up to 923px. If anyone else is using this standard measure and have any documented tests that can confirm this, feel free to share in the comments!

Another great tool, announced by +Pete Meyers  at Moz , is their new Title Tag Preview Tool,  http://goo.gl/Nf0NP9.  
Avoiding truncated Title Tags and Meta Descriptions have been a somewhat formulaic practice for a while, but once you start seeing tools like #ScreamingFrog  and #Moz use pixel length, it can be safe to say the news is definitely catching on. But yet, there are still stragglers still clinging on their old abacus.

Thank you to those Early Adopters—keep spreading the word and keep developing awesome tools like those mentioned above!
Google's 2014 redesign had a big impact on search result titles, cutting them off much sooner. This post includes a title preview tool and takes a data-driven approach to finding the new limit.

I love a good Marketing/SEO infographic, especially if it involves…SCIENCE!!
The Periodic Table Of SEO Success Factors Search engine optimization — SEO — may seem like alchemy to the uninitiated. But there is a science to it. Search engines reward pages with the right combination of ranking factors, or “signals.” SEO is about ensuring your content generates the right type of signals. Our chart below [...]

You don't have to be an evil genius to take over the SERP's it takes time and dedication with lots of good signals across a multitude of ranking factors.

Here is a great SEO check-list for things you should check you are doing, along with a list full of useful tools and software to use.

Are You Getting The Most Out of Chrome Developer Tools?

I was very excited to see this post from +Distilled as I know most web developers, content marketers and SEOs would and should be testing things in an efficient way. 

I forget that Chrome has these capabilities and I hope this helps others in the industry as well!

I'm seeing a trend here. Many say "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer." I have to make a modification to this statement: "The Rich get richer and the Middle Class disappears." There's a great evil afoot when the separation of wealth continues to diminish what is the diminishing middle class.
Amid talk of austerity measures, lost jobs and slashed wages, the super-rich seem super-resistant, with their wealth doubling since the financial crisis, adding $226 billion to their wealth in the last year alone.

"Link juice is dead" is music to my ears!
 
Link juice doesn't exist. #SEO is the real deal. Read what @msweeny has to say in her latest blog, Link Juice est Mort.

Support this awesome new Kickstarter project called PowerCycle. PowerCycle is a high-capacity USB battery pack that can be charged from a bicycle dynamo or standard wall outlet, so you can power your electronic devices on the go! He's been working really hard on it and needs all the support he can get in the next 29 days while his project is live on Kickstarter to meet his goal of $70,000 for the project to be funded. Check out his slick Kickstarter page, and back the project and/or share it with friends if you like it! #coolgadgets   #technology

Our heat pump was working fine during the summer. When the weather started to get cold, our heat pump stopped turning on. The air handler was operating fine, but we didn't hear anything from the outdoor unit. We called Burkholder's HVAC to come take a look at it. Two technicians came to our home and did a diagnosis. As my husband and I are fairly savvy and did some of our own research, we though the fuse in the out door power box had blown, but this was not the case. The professionalism and knowledge of Burkholder's technicians was superb. They found that the relay was worn down and needed to be replaced. The whole team was very efficient and polite. As far as price goes, it is very fair and considering we needed our heat pump working right away, they exceeded expectations.

My husband and I have celebrated many special occasions here, both as a date, and with our friends. Every time, we have an excellent meal! Be warned that if you get the full 5-course meal, prepare to be there for a while. It's a great restaurant to socialize and not really worry about the time. Each course is really well prepared and spaced out perfectly for us so that we have enough time to engage with friends and eat. You don't feel rushed or have to wait forever to receive our next course. We're usually there for about 2.5-3 hrs. Their variety of foods are really delicious and their special sauces hold their high reputation. If you have the mentality that you don't see the point of cooking your own food, then this is probably not the kind of place for you, but you really do need to try the experience at least once. What's great about this place is that you can come for just a light meal, dessert only, or for big meal—start to finish. It's great to come as a group because you can get a big meal and split the bill if you're on a budget. NOTE: this place is a bit more on the pricey side, be prepared to spend about $100 per couple if you do a regular meal. This restaurant uses high quality foods and they always mix up meal themes, which keep people to come back. I totally recommend this place for any special occasions, first dates, graduations, etc. They have a romantic "Lovers Lane" section with ambient lighting tables just for couples and large tables with 2 boilers for bigger groups. There's a little something for everyone.
