I work in organic search engine optimization. We align clients' content, visitor behavior and keywords so that people looking for our clients' solution can find their website. SEO with no smoke and mirrors, just putting the right content into the list so searchers can find it

Recently Google decided to put paid ads at the top of every page, which often puts the organic results (the results that searchers are looking for, based upon Google's well-known ability to find the best content for a given query) "below the fold" -- searchers need to hit page down to find organic results. This can mean only a subsegment of searchers find the organic results to their query.

My question is this: how will this effect Google's reputation as the service that kicks back the best results to a search query? For those searchers who do not know the difference between a paid ad and a organic response to a question -- which is the overwhelming majority of people who type searches into Google in the first place -- inevitably the brand of Google as the best search engine will erode. Really dumb.

If I were Bing's marketing director, I would take this and run with it, particularly on mobile search. Google already has more money than God. They now have decided to routinely deliver paid results that obscure the better, more information-rich organic results their customer is looking for, all in the name of engagement for paid ads. I repeat: dumb.

Crepe Crazy
3103 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704
We stumbled in there last night on our daily walk. The menu immediately captivated us (we were even hungry yet), so we decided to stay. I had a crepe with prosciutto, brie, apricot jam and olive oil; the apricots immediately hit you when you put a piece in your mouth but then the brie and prosciutto slowly arrived and it was just remarkable. Never had a dining experience like that. My wife had a Florentine crepe: spinach, mushrooms, parmesan, feta and ricotta. Smooth, creamy, expertly prepared and she absolutely loved it. Both came with a nice salad and the prices were very reasonable for such high quality, expertly prepared food, perfect proportions. The decor was clean and well lit, inviting but not too fancy.

There is one other amazing thing about Crepe Crazy but I am not going to tell you what it is. Just keep your eyes and ears open and be fully prepared for joy. I love my town, I loved this restaurant, and I urge you to go so you may have the same experience.

You know what?  She could play, she was really creative; check those boxes.  But pay careful attention to what her priorities were: her babies and feeding her family.  It was about them and not about her.  That is what made her so  freakin' funky.  #womenrule.

They keep telling me how sad it is, but the song just makes me want to dance.  The percussion is having so much fun back there.

Wine bottle in the back is a nice touch.
