5 Shopping Trends Retailers Should Be Aware of For the Upcoming Holiday Season

Here's an article by Think With Google about what retailers should be considering (and doing) before the upcoming big shopping season.  A key takeaway is the increased use of mobile devices by shoppers.  So how does your site (or your client's) look and perform on mobile?
The holiday shopping season kicks off earlier every year, so we wanted to help get a game plan in the hands of marketers. Here we take a look at some seasonal highlights from last year and identify five key trends to make the year’s busiest retail season a successful one.

JSON-LD's Big Day at Google

It's been a busy week for Google and structured data.  +Aaron Bradley explains JSON-LD's role in all of this.  And if you're not really familiar with JSON-LD, now would be a great time to begin learning how to use it.  #schema #structureddata
On 15 January 2015 Google extended support for JSON-LD as a means of providing structured data to the search engine.

Use Schema.org Markup to Specify Your Social Media Profiles

A new article on the Google Developers blog shares tips on how you can use schema.org markup on your website to specify your social media profile information and possibly have it appear in the Knowledge Graph panel.  I actually touched on some of that in my article on the +Whitespark blog yesterday.  Glad to see Google pushing the suggestion.   #knowledgegraph   #schema

Why Does Google Show a 4.8 Rating When I Have All 5-Star Reviews?

It's a commonly-asked (and very logical) question, so +Mike Blumenthal explains why.
Why does Google show a 4.8 rating when I have all 5-star reviews? Posted on December 22, 2014; by Mike Blumenthal; in Local Search. Why does Google show a 4.8 rating when I have all 5-star reviews? It is a question that comes up repeatedly on my blog and in the forums.

Yes it is, +David Amerland.  Which makes it even more important for webmasters and marketers to keep up with the changes related to the semantic web before they quickly fall behind.

Google Authorship is Gone--Now What?

Here's an insightful article from +Hortense Soulier about the bigger picture that you should be focusing on.  #semanticsearch #structureddata
Authorship might be gone but we are just starting to build the semantic web and we, content creators, will be its foundation.

Little Tokyo is one of those places that has great food and gives you a huge plate of it. My favorite is the Yaki Ramen, and for the amount of food that you get, you can't beat the price. I give them a 4, though, because I've been to their other locations and the food is not always consistent. But as far as this location goes, the food has always been good.

When you talk about poboys, everybody of course has their favorite places to go in New Orleans. But for a roast beef poboy, Short Stop makes one of the best I've ever had, and they're much cheaper than some of the more popular places. Definitely worth a try if you're in the area.
