"The merger would have united the country’s two largest cable operators and reshaped video and broadband markets. Some lawmakers, public advocacy groups and media and technology companies had rallied against the merger, saying it would invest too much power and market share in one company. The combined company would have controlled just under 30 percent of the pay television subscribers and 35 to 50 percent of the nation’s broadband Internet service, depending on how regulators define the market."

"Despite the fact that website owners have been encouraged to use schema.org structured data for years, according to a study by Searchmetrics, well under 1% of websites actually implement it." #Semanticweb   #schema  
Today, Google began to use mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, but the search giant isn't stopping there in its push to promote good experiences for mobile users.

"For web design history buffs, in 2005 overlapping elements with negative margins is what made possible three-column page layouts such as the so-called One True Layout (and later the Holy Grail layout)."
Former SitePoint team member Kevin Yank is back to explain three CSS tidbits that most people get wrong in his Sit the Test CSS quiz.

"Originally, the X-47B was not going to be funded for a aerial refueling demonstration, but money was apparently applied to this highly relevant test set which will last through the weekend, depending on weather. The goal is to not just have the X-47B make prolonged contact with the tanker, but actually complete a full aerial refueling as well."
The Navy’s X-47B Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle demonstrator has added yet another huge feat to its long list of incredible accomplishments, which includes operating from an aircraft carrier. This time, it has demonstrated autonomous aerial refueling, plugging into a aerial refueling basket behind an Omega Air KC-707.

"There are a few ways but the only way to know if your site is already indexed by Google as mobile friendly is to see if your site has the mobile friendly label in the mobile search results. Using the mobile friendly testing tool will show if you pass the test, but Google may still need some time to update their index to pick up on the fact that your web pages are mobile friendly. You can also the mobile usability reports within Google Webmaster Tools, but those can be fairly delayed."

"So what’s the big deal here? QUIC is Google’s experimental, low-latency Internet transportation protocol over UDP, a protocol that is often used by gaming, streaming media and VoIP services. The name ‘QUIC’ stands for Quick UDP Internet Connection."

"Confused? We understand. Here's an example: If you search for "history of Google," then the Google site that appears as the very first search ranking won't have the URL of said site beneath said site's title. So, no more "www.google.com/about/company/history" or any of that."

Christopher Regan: SEO, SEM & Data? Maine Lobster BLT w/ aïoli? Digital Leadership÷Analytics=ROI; Automotive, Hospitality, Financial Services, Bio Tech, Pharma, Non-Profits/NGOs; Schema, RDFa, JSON-LD, threads & multi-linear in SEO, CPC and Project Management, w/in semantic ontologies...even Social and Brand mothering and digital curations, w/kale salads | Philly, then NYC Digital MarCom technologies professional transplanted to sunny Orange County, CA
Introduction
February 2015 update: Still assisting Caliber Media Group with all aspects of SEO, SEM, & Analytics -- especially in the realm of ontologies, Schema & SEO (e.g., FIBO Schema SEO -- see/read? blog posts top of SERPs). And still devoted to Aid for Africa and Hire our Heroes (oh, and iArtView)...assisting their respective efforts.

August 2014 update: Was assisting Toyota dealers with SEO/SEM/Analytics, a healthcare consortium based in Orange County also within digital marcom, and devoting a fair amount of time to volunteer digital marketing leadership/guidance/hands-on efforts (including Aid For Africa). And, then there's ProductCamp SoCal and Caliber Media Group -- more on those later.

February 2014 update: Search & Analytics Consulting (acting Director) for the Dealer Authority start-up team, while also assisting some Toyota dealerships for their SEM, SEO and Analytics.

October 2013 update: in my role as TEDxOC Project Director/Team Leader, had assembled an outstanding team of fellow volunteers, including from Thematix's leadership (i.e., Rob Kost), to continuosly enhance & and curate this TEDx's digital communication and conversation with the Southern California and national communities, and with individuals, each seeking to better our lives and planet.

July 2013 update
: working with Thematix, a semantic technologies firm based in NYC, a start-up led by Rob Kost, with whom I worked after Rob co-founded U.S. Interactive (a frim now a bare shell of its former self). 

December, 2011/2012 update (from some press releases): last as SEO/SEM leader for NADAguides. Previous experience with NADA, aside from working within digital automotive for years now, involved heading up NADA's 2010 Orlando convention's Social Media with a select team from Hyperdisk. As of Q4 2011 Christopher Regan also began working with Thematix, its leader Rob Kost, the co-founder of U.S. Interactive, where Chris was Dir. of Client Services/Business Development in New York City. An overview, including Hyperdisk and Hasai, is found here. An overview of Microformats he wrote, and was posted by Matt Funk of TK Carsites/Hasai, is found here (RDFa and Microformats). Chris has consulted with IDTek Enterprises within their SEM/SEO practice, and Chris volunteers for many organizations, including the Analysis Exchange (a an Analytics Mentor, his current/ongoing projects include two NYC headquartered international non-profits: Episcopal Relief and Develoment, and the American Museum of Natural History). Still engaged in Digital Automotive SEM/SEO leadership (six years at this point -- for some leading automotive firms: The Lease Outlet, NADA Conventions and TK Carsites' top clients), he's been deeply engaged in all things related to web marketing since 1995 (when he was the SEM/conference evangelist and web analytics lead for Infonautics). He's also currently defining the RDFa schema for the automotive dealerships vertical, alongside Hospitality. He's a dedicated foodie, admitted NY Times junkie/addict, and does miss the big cities of the East, like Philly, NYC, Boston and DC. A previous press (2008) release offers an additional snapshot/backgrounder... Irvine, CA -- Hyperdisk Marketing, Inc, one of the pioneers of strategic digital marketing and communications, announced today that Christopher Regan has joined the firm as Search and Marketing Director, over-seeing all strategic and tactical implementations of Search Marketing for Hyperdisk's clients, specifically Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaigns, sponsorship insertions, and other search engine advertising placements for the firm's clients roster. "Chris brings an immense amount of experience with Fortune 500 companies to our team. He immediately impressed us with his knowledge, skills, and the ability to connect with Hyperdisk's clients. We are delighted that he joined our team of the industry's best of breed," Steven Seghers, president, Hyperdisk Marketing. Prior to joining Hyperdisk as Search and Marketing Director, Chris was the Director of Web Services for the national automotive firm The Lease Outlet, delivering top marketing results within a highly competitive industry while also overhauling that firm's IT and Internet infrastructures. His work within the web industry began in 1995 with Infonautics' online research service eLibrary, (now ProQuest and HighBeam Research) for that firm's web marketing efforts, including creating stand-alone web properties within AOL, Yahoo and other web portals. 

Upon joining I-Frontier (now part of Microsoft's international Razorfish unit) his web advertising work greatly enhanced consumer awareness and lead generation for brands such as CNN's Business 2.0, Claritin, Coppertone, Prilosec, StarMedia (now South America's #1 web portal), Publishers' Clearing House and 1800Flowers. As Director of Client Services for U.S. Interactive's New York City offices clients included Johnson & Johnson, American Express, Citibank, Deloitte Consulting, and Goldman Sachs -- even a role as Project Engineer for RCA Electronics' first direct-to-consumers (DTC) online efforts. For 15 years he has been a speaker at industry conferences such as ad:tech, Ziff Davis Media, The Gartner Group, NYNMA (New York New Media Association) and the SIIA (Software & Information Industry Association).

Bragging rights
Survived moving from NYC to SoCal (the two are so experientially different!). Serendipitously asked to join China's U.N. Ambassador (capricious invite from the Ambassador) for brunch (w/ a UPenn Dean) at the White Dog Cafe In Philly (an East-coast 'Chez Pannisse', though not a French Laundry, for you Bay Area/Valley folks)...

For detailed automotive SEM and SEO, oh, and digital analytics, you'd be hard pressed to find a more straight-forward web marketing firm than IDTek. I know, for I've dealt with so many dealerships' digital marketing firms and IDTek is the night & day difference.

Ugh, just please remove some links from a new watch's watchband. Please? After careful examination, and kind yet clear explanation that the 'arrows' on the links show where to remove the links, I paid in the morning and returned in the afternoon, as we'd agreed, to pick up the watch. "Oh, not ready and we are closing". I could add other context (didn't take out the number of links we'd agreed to, when I picked up the next week), but do yourself a favor and my neighborhood one too: let this skeleton of a store die peacefully, its owners retire.

Great service (very attentive host/manager/owner), home-made pasta, fresh clams, a bordering on being really a family clientele-type restaurant. A very pleasant, unpretentious experience in Huntington Beach, CA...

Great service, great food (Steak Fajita Buttito -- oh my gosh), and the Taco Tuesday's are served with low-priced tacos that look wonderful (they're soft tacos). The salsas are just great...seating is limited to around 25 max., from what I see...

I first went here year's ago with some wonderful folks. They told me and my date not to order the mussels appetizer for each of us. Well, they were so right. But, the mussels were fantastic -- everything was. And, the little bar, is just like those found in the Italian restaurants of my you in South Philly. My most recent visit to NYC involved a specific visit to this place over in Newark. Highly recommend.
