SEO is a field that is loaded with myths. You can still find people who think that SEO is all about metatags. But, the last few years have brought us some new myths, which 's CEO summarizes here in his latest post on Forbes (link is below).

Simpletons at the executive level would determine a causal relationship where there was none.
This was more to me than a minor irritant.
It was a major burden on the profit of the company. Not only were we required to spend time on activities that produced little, we were also NOT spending time on those activities that actually DID produce results.
In golf terms, it's a 2 shot swing.
If you're wondering what Google +Post Ads are and why they're important for brands, this article on Forbes will provide a simple explanation.
For a more detailed summary of just how big of a deal this is for Google and how truly revolutionary +Post Ads are, check out 's article on Linkedin ( https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140416220146-13325642-google-post-ads-bringing-engagement-to-advertising?_mSplash=1). As Mark explains, Google figured out how to monetize Google+ without cluttering it up with ads like Facebook.
Here is my take on the +Post ads program from Google. I think this is a brilliant move by Google to draw new users into the platform. Brands will use this program to drive their content marketing program, and in the process create exposure to Google+ to a whole new generation of users.
Here is the article:
Thanks to and for their clear thinking on this new development from the Google + team. And, Watch for the May 1 edition of the #DMEShow that will feature who is the product manager for +Post ads at Google!
I so wanted to watch this live! This isn't so much a book review of Google+ Hangouts for Business by as it is an in depth discussion about how Hangouts can "make brands more personal and make people more like brands."
As points out in this HOA, Hangouts allow any of us to become media producers. Or at a minimum we can meet with people more personally.
Another great Hangout you've put together !
The show will air at 12:30 PM EDT (Boston time) on Monday April 14th.
Just say YES to get access to the video for live viewing, or later viewing.
