Hopefully some Pleasanton residents on Google Plus will see and share my thoughts on how we should start dealing with the water crisis:

I read that it's 3 years minimum before we can possibly be clear of the drought. I also read a month or so ago, that apparently there are ways to import water from other states that essentially means the cost of water will go way up.  Ultimately I suppose this will lead to migration to areas where water and the rest of the cost of living are less expensive. And we will likely have to change our expectations about getting a great orange any time we want.

Has Google done anything to improve the spam situation since Brian Seely got all that media attention for spamming the Secret Service and FBI listings? Find out in this interview with Map Maker expert +Dan Austin.

3 days post redesign, this ecommerce client site is kicking #SEO butt. www.localseoguide.com/how-to-redesign-website-and-not-screw-up-your-seo/ was published in 2008 and still applies in 2014. The hourly traffic tool is notoriously flaky but I'll take it for now :)

Your new site is fresher, give it time before making SEO assessments.

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. It's hard to understand Google's incompetence in dealing with this more effectively. He's probably right about myopia. Also, lack of interest, agility, and the fact that it's not threatening their ad revenue, would be my bet.

Best part about this is I have had several clients complain when Google shows their https in the SERPs as they think people are less likely to click on them

Steve helped me replace the nasty linoleum in my kids' bathroom with some beautiful tile. The whole process was easy and priced well. A real pro with great service.

And the fact that they didn't use my name in one of their fake reviews has nothing to do with my rating...

I have worked with Will and Search Influence numerous times over the past few years and have been extremely satisfied with the results. Whenever I don't have capacity I often send clients over to Will without hesitation. He recently helped one of my clients grow organic traffic by about 40% over a few months via content creation and linkbuilding. I'll +1 him whenever Google gets around to adding +1s to Place Pages (which btw I can't believe they haven't done yet).
