"On July 28, Google will begin shutting down Google My Business-associated Google+ pages that have not been associated with a user account and are also not verified."

If this is true, it seems to make sense. Although, what will "associated with a user account" mean and how many of those exist that are also not verified? I think I wouldn't mind a more aggressive approach of just taking out all the unverified ones.

Cutman "Stitch" Duran not welcome back to work any +UFC - Ultimate Fighting Championship events due to his critical comments of the +Reebok deal in a recent article. 

Can one of you saavy PR/Outreach folks please talk some sense into these people?

Following the news that "Stitch" Duran would no longer serve as cutman for UFC events, John S. Nash had a chance to talk to Duran and ask him about the comments.

Interesting. This is one of those things that sound great until you start to think about the side effects of some future gene-modifying pill. With so many dollars involved, there's always bound to be some serious collateral damage.

The new top level domains are a good opportunity for folks to get that domain name they really wanted for their website or business. A bunch of Googlers got together to work out a short FAQ on how they're handled in search, the result is linked below. Somewhat simplified: if you spot a domain name on a new TLD that you really like, you're keen on using it for longer, and understand there's no magical SEO bonus, then go for it :-).

Looks like SEO tools providers will no longer have access to Google's Autocomplete via API.  Maybe as AI is more and more responsible for more and more of Search it becomes necessary to make it more difficult for anyone to reengineer any of it.

With so much Ghost Referral Spam and "(not provided)" these days it can be really difficult for anyone, much less someone new to working on their own website, to interpret Google Analytics data.

Historically, it's been pretty user-unfriendly and has really gotten worse over the years IMO. This is one reason I always recommend people use StatCounter, especially for lower-traffic websites (it's also good for comparing against what GA reports). 

After a quick search, I didn't find too many good explanatory articles or videos for beginner detailing something simple like understanding Direct vs Referral vs Organic Search visits. This one (although using the old GA interface) does a decent job of giving the quick answer. 

Just remember that there are TONS of caveats which I guess I'll have to try and explain in a blog post sometime later.  Anyone else know of any good resources?

Everyone's heard about the Windows vulnerability, right? This one apparently affects all version of Windows and gives a hacker full admin access. An emergency patch has been released. 

More info:

The flaw, which also affects Windows 10, allows a hacker to take over a machine.
