Why Blackhat SEO still works sometimes.  But sooner or later you're probably going to get busted!
 
Why does black hat SEO still work (sometimes)?

It's frustrating. You're checking search results for a term that matters to your business, and there are obvious spammers and manipulators at the top of the results.

Why does this still happen? Is the situation getting better? Sheriff Mark and Eric "Black Bart" Enge have the answers in our latest #HeresWhyMonday video!

Twitter will live stream the NFL’s Thursday Night Football

Looks like we finally have a (surprising!) winner in the fight to broadcast Thursday night NFL games live across the Web: Twitter.

The NFL announced that Thursday Night Football games will be digitally streamed on Twitter http://tgcafe.it/1qswxR0.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wrote in a statement, published on ESPN:

"Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football. There is a massive amount of NFL-related conversation happening on Twitter during our games and tapping into that audience, in addition to our viewers on broadcast and cable, will ensure Thursday Night Football is seen on an unprecedented number of platforms this season. This agreement also provides additional reach for those brands advertising with our broadcast partners." http://tgcafe.it/1RZTTcJ

Twitter has long been a partner of the NFL via video highlights, but these are not highlights we are talking about here.

We’re talking full games available to watch in-app, for free, around the world.

There will be ten games in total, with NBC and CBS retaining the traditional broadcast rights, while the NFL’s own NFL Network cable channel will also broadcast the games.

The rights package also includes in-game highlights of the Thursday games and pregame Periscope broadcasts from players and teams.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told ESPN http://tgcafe.it/1RZTTcJ:

"This is about transforming the fan experience with football. People watch NFL games with Twitter today. Now they’ll be able to watch right on Twitter Thursday nights."

No I don't think so, but it's harder to spot one than it should be!

Professionally

I'm an SEO geek working for the great Eric Enge as a senior marketing consultant at Stone Temple Consulting. I've worked with Fortune 50 brands, start-ups, and local businesses.

Recently, I've been working on difficult SEO problems including Penguin and Panda recoveries, SEO strategy, site redesigns and re-platforms. I'm become a student of semantic search so I can help my clients adapt as Google evolves. I also enjoy helping individuals and organizations improve their brands by building their influence and trust online.


Personally

I love hanging out with my wife and daughter, working on home improvement projects and going to West Virginia Mountaineer football games. I'm also an active member of the National Capital Area Chapter, WVU Alumni Association and past board member. I've lived in the Washington, DC area for over 15 years, but still call West Virginia home. My faith is important to me. I believe the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God. I recently started attending Germantown Baptist Church.

Anyway, reach out to me and say hello. I'm a pretty friendly guy!

My family has been coming here for 8 years. We make sure each trip to the beach includes at least 1 visit to Harpoon Hanna's. I usually get AYCE crab legs. My first order was cold but they quickly replaced it with a fresh hot batch. You have to get here really early if you don't want to a long wait plus you might be able to get waterside seating. Recommend the Deep Brew Pale Ale with crab legs.

Had the Kona Ribeye. It was a little too rare (I ordered it med rare and it was definitely rare)for my liking and there was a lot a gristle. But the flavor was so good I ate it anyway. Would have given 4 stars if the steak was cooked properly. Disappointed in appetizer choices and only one soup option. Service was excellent.
