In a press release, Eyeo CEO and Adblock Plus cofounder Till Faida, says: “There are two ecosystems of online consumers out there right now: the one composed of people who block intrusive ads and the other where people do not. The Acceptable Ads Platform lets publishers reach the former group without changing anything about how they’re reaching the latter.”
AdBlock Plus will soon sell its own acceptable adds. It's not as crazy as you might think.

Yeah, the Brave browser has a similar business model. I prefer their implementation though.

Let’s just admit Google's Project Ara was a terrible idea and move on
Google is killing Project Ara, it’s modular smartphone concept that aimed to let you ‘upgrade’ your phone piece by piece. In theory, it sounds pretty amazing. In practice, it would have been terrible. Google was trying to gamify upgrades New York, are you ready? We’re building Momentum: an all killer, no filler event this November. …

Hey +Mike Blumenthal this is brilliant
 
Reviews the web can be both valuable and frustrating... here are some ideas on how to minimize the frustration and maximize the benefit.
Google's research has indicated that having reviews on your Google listing resulted in a 140% increase in driving directions and a 350% increase in web site visits from the local search results. It stands to reason that having more Reviews from the web show prominently on your brand Knowledge Panel (KP) would…

Stellar Marketing Experts Reveal What They Would 3D Print in Space and Why? #MajesticInSpace
If you’ve been following our #MajesticInSpace project we launched back in March, you’ll know we’re (hopefully) looking to see some Majestic 3D printing action on the International Space Station (courtesy of NASA and Made in Space) later this month. To pass the time while we wait, we thought we’d ask some our industry friends a…

hmmm more integration with Twitter...
 
Share a Google post to Twitter!

Native shares from +Google+ to Twitter now show a full twitter card with an image from the Google+ post being shared.

Until recently shares to twitter did not work that well. They would look like this: imgur.com/40YiZzc ... Not pretty.

But that has been fixed and shares now look like this: twitter.com/qwallis/status/772005386576662528

So next time you see something worth sharing, remember that you can try the share to twitter option too!

Story
Tagline
I share a lot of content and ideas that drive me into rants but more often inspire or educate.
Introduction
I play in the digital space and have been doing it since 1994 so I have a good understanding and interest in most topics so please engage with me and feel free to share and comment on anything I share via this channel. 

I started out in this industry in 2008 under The Lost Agency as a web analyst, since I started back then have worked with several web development companies and several marketing agencies. I've worked on projects focused on Google AdWords, Google Analytics, WebTrends, Facebook Advertising, Twitter Campaigns, Social Media Strategies, SEO Audits, SEO Technical Projects, Link Building Projects and Digital Strategies.

I usually try and blog over at Lost Press Marketing which is my main site but also can be found writing for several industry blogs when I get a good topic and some headspace to write a decent post. I also love promoting conferences and events and working to increase the number of interviews done with industry players.

I'm now based in Amsterdam working for Marktplaats which is part of ebay classifieds group.  Marktplaats is a leading Dutch classifieds platform for Autos, HolidaysServices, Daily Deals, Outlets and more!

I also work with the awesome and highly social team of 2dehands.be and 2ememain.be which is the largest free classifieds site in Belgium. I also have a travel website that I blog about my travels on Travel Network.

Also can you please ensure that you have some details on your profile and some links to your projects or social profiles so I can add you to the right circle. I don't add many people to my circles so please don't feel offended if we engage and I don't add you back.
Bragging rights
I started my own marketing agency, co-authored a book on marketing.... I've worked with some big brands and done some amazing SEO projects and now working in Europe for ebay classifieds group.

Such a tiny airport and no real food options once you pass through security except for a handful of vending machines. Upside the vending machine prices weren't so bad. They have powerpoints around the waiting areas but not as organised with charging stations as had become standard in many airports. The biggest advantage of this airport is that it's pretty small so not much time between check-in and the gates. They have new security gates at customs for epassports but they were roped off when I was there but looked like they are ready to be used.

What a fun place, we went here with my cousin who advised it was the best place to get crepes from in the area. We started we savoury crepes and I went for goats cheese and honey which was yummy but I kinda wondered if I should have gone for the chicken which looked equally yummy. For dessert I went for the house made chocolate which was a little rich so maybe next time lemon and honey crepes. They have a traditional cider or Apple juice with your meal but be aware the apple juice is something like €3.40 a glass... It's tasty but consider not gulping down too many.. The staff were fun and friendly certainly a wonderful place to eat and spend time with friends and family

Very interesting place, this hidden pub is a bit of a gem but it's a slightly older crowd and a place you might go for a chat not a party location.

We went here for a farewell party and it was a nice and different location. It gets pretty busy here on a Thursday night so book ahead if you want to be guaranteed a table.

An interesting enough experience while visiting Nantes. We were lucky enough to get in for free because it was digital week which was a nice surprise. They had several interactive exhibitions focused around Virtual Reality which fun. I expected a few more items on display but still something to see. The exhibition is tailored to French visitors with almost everything in French. The most annoying part is the signs displaying information about items are maybe 10% of what it actually shows in French. If you want to see some of his creations in full size head over to the nearby Island that has the giant elephant you can't miss.
