Great infographic about what you should and should not do to your resume so that the 'bots can read it and find the information that they are programmed to seek. Don't give them a reason to reject your resume.

Did I mention that I hate interleague play? Exactly who thought it was a wonderful idea to have your home opener against a team from the Other League? #baseballcurmudgeon   #hatetheDHtoo

It seems to me that SEO is a game for the big boys, if anyone. Google rewards relevancy and engagement, and it seems that the more effort you put into gaming the process, the faster Google changes its algorithms.

Edit video right on your smartphone? Cool. Add effects and filters and cropping and other clever features? Good stuff! Get the full version for under $10? Now you're just being silly. Check out the video:

How about a commuter car that gets 84 mpg and looks like a lot of fun to drive? Elio Motors will be building these next year, and you can save a place in line now!

I've created a new page to publicize the presentation that I offer for parents of high school students about college and career choices. If you know of a school that would want to book me to speak to their parents -- either in the Philadelphia area or anywhere in the U.S. -- please share this link with them:
