Just because a sales person says they're great, doesnt mean they are!  Do your research!

Great tip from my friend +Mary Bowling 
 
Two little characters – the asterisk ( * ) and the underscore ( _ ) can help your keyword-research. Simply add them to various search terms you type into Google when researching keywords, and autocomplete might spit out phrases you wouldn't have seen or thought of otherwise.

Today's #Kitchen Hack! Tired of rummaging through the fridge for things you put in the table at every meal? Put them in a bin and just put the bin in the table as you set it! Then place the bin back in the fridge when you're done!

If you're trying to get your small business to rank better - Schema.org markup might help! My guest post over at +Local University shows you how to get started!

Definitely worth a look - if you're using filtered reviews from yelp as on-website testimonials - they're now available to the public and "duplicate"
 
Attention Local SEOers. Yelp filtered reviews are no longer behind a captcha. If you've been using them as testimonials on your sites, you should stop doing that and you might want to take any existing ones down.

Good Morning, Team Schema Awesome!

I have an issue.  My hobby blog, where I play around a lot with schema, specifically review and recipe schema, uses a free wordpress theme that I'm pretty happy with.  I dont need to invest a ton of time into design here - it does what I need it to do....EXCEPT.....

For some reason - the posts with reviews are doing something really funky.  I have review schema markup on the pages, but the Rich Snippets Testing Tool is also extracting hreview AGGREGATE markup - and I dont have any aggregate markup on the page.  Near as I can tell it's either a) some itemprop/type I'm using incorrectly or b) my WordPress template is creating this somehow - where would I find this in the code/editor to eliminate the errors?  I don't need hreview on the page because Schema is working nicely and validates well.

Any thoughts?  I know I could find another template or design something from scratch - but I'd like to see if I can make this a quick fix first before investing a ton of design/programming time into a hobby blog.

     It's that time. The time when juniors in high school start searching for places called "Colleges", where they will ultimately dump all their parents money into education, and booze. Come on, they don't call it the "Fresh...

Introduction
I live in Western Colorado, I have two great kids, I'm fascinated by online marketing,nearly every aspect, and am a voracious cook.  I am starting to realize I really "am" a writer - although I don't think I've ever felt that way to my core - I'm hoping to change that.  I am a pretty avid reader - and love the feeling of a quiet house and a book in my hand.  I don't think you can write well if you don't read well - they definitely go hand in hand.

I blog a lot - sometimes at IgnitorDigital.com - much of the time at my hobby blog, LooksLikeHomemade.com.  
Bragging rights
Have 2 kids, one is driving, one is driving me crazy. I also have 4 dogs and a cat. I live in a zoo. I own my own business. I think I'm a gardener, although my plants would probably disagree as they gasp for water......

My husband isnt a fan - it's too "fancy" for him but I love their interpretation of food and always try something new when I'm here. As a gal from northern Minnesota - I have a deep appreciation for their Poutine as well! My daughter and I always pick Pullman when we go out for girl's night - great meal and their desserts are innovative and fantastic!

We were here the weekend they opened. The vegetarian shepherd's pie was wonderful, and their steak was REALLY well prepared. A great addition to downtown! I was happy to see they kept Tony Rosa's recipe for Lobster Ravioli on the menu. It was my daughter's favorite when this place was Peppo Nino. Sad to see an institution go - but this is a great replacement for the space. Decor is really cute as well!

Delivery in Silt! Love their pizza - great crust and great sauce. Their salads are also wonderful - my fave is the Antipasto Salad! Delivery is quick unless they're super busy - but in Silt we're not too picky about that - it's the ONLY delivery we have! Highly Recommend.

Dr Pollaccia and his staff did a great job preparing us and monitoring my daughter as she recovered from anesthesia this morning. He was very sweet and sympathetic to her weeping (a side effect of the drugs) and made sure I had detailed instructions and we had written instructions to go over once she was less groggy. He gave us prescriptions the night before so we could have everything ready when we brought her home. The surgery itself was just about half an hour and she felt pretty good for the first few hours at home. She's in pain, but that was to be expected and I don't think it's outside of what is reasonable or customary. I recommend them highly and their summertime $1500 special for paying cash was well worth our drive from the Western Slope.

We enjoyed our stay - There were 4 of us in a 2 queen room. I had made a mistake and booked 2 doubles, so when we arrived I asked for an upgrade and they gave it to us free of charge. The noise from pool construction started a bit early - but we were there with the kids and were up early. I won consistently on the Penny slots and my husband enjoyed the small poker room. The entertainment promenade was fun - Go to Sprinkles for a cupcake and a cookie - YUM! We didnt ride the high roller - it was pricey and my kids were more keen to go on roller coasters - so we skipped it.

I've had 2 different Macs in here and had both fixed in a matter of hours - they replaced a hard drive for me in about 1.5 hrs and replaced an internal battery in my Macbook Air in just 15 minutes. Jamon, the tech there, is really skilled and returns phone calls promptly. The guys working the desk are professional and helpful. Very happy with the service - and I didnt have to go to Denver to find a Mac "Genius" bar and then have them send my machine away. I'll definitely be returning!
