Intrigued - Keep Reading?

I am the co-founder of a company called Steady Demand. We are solely focused on Business Brand Page Management on Google+. To put it simply, we do all the heavy lifting, writing, engagement, developing quality followers and we stay up to speed on social and search so you can focus on what you do best -- growing your business

( We also educate you along the way ) - Check out this free tool we created to help you check your connection from your G+ business brand page to your website. The tool will also grade your posts and teach you how to make them the best they can be.

We started Steady Demand after a few of our consulting clients came to us and started asking for help with manual penalties. We saw the coming of semantic search ( Hummingbird ) Social Signals and the convergence of Social and SEO a while ago, so we decided to apply Google+ and experiment with how we can help companies rank better naturally.

Using a combination of relationship building, thought leadership and the creation of great content, we will work with you ( as a partner ) to help you meet your business objectives.

The circles I would recommend to putting me in:

  • Google Plus Educators
  • Internet Marketing and Strategy
  • Google Plus for Business
What do I share on Google Plus?
  • Google Plus Tips
  • Google Plus Experiments
  • Google Plus News
  • Sometimes funny things and video game related stuff
PS I am available on Helpouts sometimes:
Review Your Google Plus Business Brand Page
Learn How to Post Properly on Google Plus

How machine learning impacts SEO
Great study/history on how machine learning could/does  impact SEO.

I especially like the breakdown of Panda/Penguin. 
Much as suspected and makes total sense.

Read on for details!

Big H/T to +Eric Enge and +Moz 
 
Machine Learning Revolution
How It Works & How It Affects SEO

My latest for +Moz.

Over the past few months I've been taking a deep, deep dive into what I believe is one of the most paradigm-changing technological revolutions since the invention of the Google Search algorithm: machine learning.

I haven't just been studying about it; I've been learning to do it!

In this extensive article for Moz I help you understand:

- What machine learning is.
- Why it really is a revolution.
- How it changes the world of search.
- How you can prepare for the revolution.

As a bonus, I reveal my first public application using machine learning: our new Twitter Engagement Predictor!

Happy Birthday to Steady Demand
Tree Years Old
#ns  
 
Yippee!!! We just turned three!!!
It's our birthday!!! http://gplus.ly/1OTKb4S

Three years ago, after a few consulting clients started asking for help with manual penalties, we saw the coming of Semantic Search, Social Signals, and the convergence of Social and SEO. We decided to apply our experience to Google Plus, without a doubt one of the hardest platforms to create an engaged brand... and +Steady Demand was born.

Now, three years later, we use a combination of relationship building, thought leadership, and the creation of great content, to work with our partners to help them meet their business objectives on social media. We are hyperfocused on G+, Twitter and Facebook, and in the last 12 months, our exceptional team has created over 14,000 posts for our very happy clients. 

Speaking of our team, we have grown from 2 to 13 awesome team members; and, we are especially proud that our very first hire is still here with us to this very day! Our team works remotely; however, due to the magic of technology and 5 Vegas Retreats, we are quite connected and have grown into a family.

As we blow out our birthday candles, here is to you: our friends, our fans, our team, our clients, and our partners. It does indeed take a village and, without each of you, we would not be celebrating today.

New G+: How to see who is Following your Collection

Good afternoon class! The more you understand your audience, the better would be the engagement, that's why it is very important know who is Following your Collection. This is how you can see your Followers of your Collection:

1) Go to one of your Collections
2) Click on the ellipsis menu which is on the top
3) Select Collection Followers
And you will be to open your Collection’s Followers box. Tap outside the Followers box or press close button to close the box.

Tip - Remember when someone is following your Collection, it is because they want to receive updates, and if someone shares any of your content, it's to reach out to their followers. So, keep an eye on what your readers follow and reshare of your posts and you'll be able to grow your network on Google+

Twitter Turning News Feed To Algorithmic #RipTwitter  
I for one have to agree with Mark, if twitter makes the algorithmic timeline optional for users, this can be a step in the right direction twitter to actually recover its user base and potentially make a move to become a more dominant force in social media.

One thing we can be certain of, if you have shares of twitter stock, expect your prices to drop. 
 
Twitter nearly burst into flames last night with Buzzfeed's announcement that the network may introduce an algorithmic news feed within the next week.

In this post I step out on a limb and explain why I think this might be the first good move Twitter has made in a long time.

(And if you want to help a fellow out, we'd love to see this post get some attention on the current trending hashtag ‪#‎RIPTwitter‬. So we'd love it if you have a Twitter account and would retweet it. You'll find the tweet at http://twitter.com/marktraphagen/status/696021745308934144)
Gauging by the noise over on Twitter right now, if the Twitter bird were a canary in a coal mine, it would be 'no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late canary. It's a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If you hadn't nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies. It's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-canary.' (Apologies to Monty Python.)True that so...

Plus Ones Restored
Today some of you may notice a jump in +1s on your older posts. We had an issue earlier that resulted in some +1s not being displayed correctly. As of today, that's fully resolved and all your posts should show the right number of +1s.

Thanks to everyone who brought this to our attention and apologies for any problems~

Good food good times. When you visit a fast food resturant in a mall, you expect poor service with a smile. We did not get that here.

While the service is exemplary, I had a few issues with AMC Arrowhead IMAX. The first is that the IMAX experience is not a full IMAX as expected. The screen was not a big as I thought it may be. As expected, you will pay egregious prices for any concession foods you buy, if you get hot foods expect the rest of your order to be forgotten.
