Google announced they are expanding +Post Ads to all advertisers who have over 1,000 followers on their Google+ Pages.
In addition, they are also testing two new features for +Post Ads.
♨ Promoted Hangouts on Air: You can now promote your Hangout on Air with +Post ads that lets users take specific actions before, during, and after the broadcast. Users can RSVP prior to the Hangout, watch the broadcast live, and view a recording after the event.
♨ Automatic post promotion: Now you can automatically promote your most recent Google+ post, and pay only when people engage with your content, extending the reach of your social content across the web.

Google Analytics has quietly changed the terminology they use within the reports to change what they call "_visits_" and "_unique visitors."
Now, visits are "_sessions" and unique visitors are "_users_."
Nothing else seems to have changed.

What are some of the biggest SEO Myths you see still being repeated (either at conferences, or in blogs, etc)?
MYTH 1: Relates to Google Ads and their relationship to organic search rankings
♨ If you buy ads, your organic rankings will go higher.
♨ If you don't buy ads, your rankings will go higher.
♨ Google makes changes to their organic results to drive more people to buy ads.
All of this is untrue and a myth according to Matt Cutts.
MYTH 2: Quick fixes to break Google's algorithm.
There are too many fads in the forums and black hat forums.
One person will say tactic X works awesome, then a few months later, tactic Y and so on. For example, someone might say article directories work, then later guest blogging, then later link wheels and this process goes on and on. Also, someone might say a specific tool works very well.
Matt said, the truth is, if someone found a loophole, they wouldn't sell it as an ebook or software product, they'd use it themselves for as long as possible before others catch on.
"Never be afraid to think for yourself.", says Matt.
Remember what Google's end goal is: to provide the searchers with the best possible results and aligns yourself with those goals - provide the best pages to match searchers' queries.
Thanks to , my morning coffee tastes all the sweeter today - with science behind it.
Of course, 'the American Chemical Society cautions that it's best to keep your caffeine intake at about 400mgs (3 8-oz cups), lest you end up with jitters and anxiety' doesn't apply to me. lol
Enjoy your morning cup and allusively increased productivity!

Are you thinking about it?
That’s right, I’ve had some online business flops in the past, until one day I realized that my business was only as good as the number of eyes that saw it on a daily basis.
That’s why I started TrafficGenerationCafe, focusing on various ways to increase website traffic like search engine traffic, social media traffic, networking, as well as how to convert that traffic into subscribers and buyers.
In six quick months, my blog grew to be an authority on traffic generation. My blog’s traffic (I was ranked under 15K on Alexa), reader engagement, and sales showed me that I was on the right track.
This might all seem foreign to you.
Stick with me and it will soon become second nature.
