Do you use interstitial to aggressive push mobile app downloads? If so maybe you will want to read this post...

Do you use annoying interstitials to push mobile app downloads? well you might want to rethink that and move to native solutions or Google will take away your mobile-friendly tag.... 
 
It's official. Using app install interstitials will cause your pages to fail the mobile-friendly test as of 11/1/15 #seo via +Google Webmasters

The newest drones are capable of recording breathtaking video footage, but can also be a nuisance for other travelers seeking tranquil moments.

Twitter removed the metadata which shows which app a tweet is posted from (it was once useful for sleuthing) from most clients, but it remains in tact for TweetDeck. Interestingly though, Swift’s video tweets don’t show up as being from any client in TweetDeck (here’s a screenshot) which you could take to mean it is from a new app. Perhaps… maybe.

Quite an interesting read on the protectionism that still operates in the technology industry...

Beginning Monday, Russia's largest search engine Yandex.Direct will use an action method known as Vickery-Clarke-Groves (VGC) to serve ads in what the technology running the platform considers the best positions in query returning in search engine results pages across the Yandex Advertising Network.

That person, supporting one of the "core big bets," Bing Ads, would join the team responsible for driving R&R in major Bing ads markets.

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.

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.

Not a bad place to stop for some lunch while you wait for your flight. The food is fresh and fast but I found the food was not as good as 4 Urbs which was a bit of a shame as it's the same food item ordered at both places. Don't let that stop you eating here while pricey the food is still great by airport standards.

Such high hopes for this place, the building was brand new the bathrooms were 4 star hotel quality and the bunk beds were nice and solid. Why a terrible rating? 1) payment terminal not working which meant a 10-15 minute walk at night to find an ATM 2) over booked 2nd night which meant one girl in our room had to sleep on a spare mattress, 5 people 4 bed dorm 3) charged my credit card for deposit has not released the money so I paid extra, they are not helpful via email 4) wifi sux in rooms

I basically checked in after arriving via Amtrak, crashed out for a few hours got up and left for the airport by Uber so didn't really get to experience much of the hostel or the area. The hostel location seems to be near several interesting bars and clubs but was a bit far away from Pike Place Market (which I knew when I booked it) so just be aware if that is all you came to Seattle to see. Rooms were very nicely decorated and showers/toilets were spacious...

I didn't really get to see much of this place I basically checked in, dropped my stuff off and went out to Khao San Road (Thai food) for some late dinner. The layout of the room was weird and sadly they had metal bunk beds that weren't the quietest to sleep in... There seemed to be a fairly active social scene in the main building but I stayed at one of the buildings next door number 48 I recall. The hostel is not the newest but does have a positive vibe about it

Aletto Kudamm Hostel was an interesting enough place, I think it's a very well located hostel right near the S+U Zoologischer Garten Station and walking distance to many tourist attractions. I did notice they had a large roof terrace but didn't see an obvious way to get there. The hostel rooms are in the basement which can mean they are a bit stuffy but good enough for a few days.

I really did like the old historical feel of this hostel, the rooms were nice and spacious and it had a real charm to it, the staff were super helpful and friendly in pointing out places to visit and tourist traps to avoid... they had good local knowledge of what was happening which was very much appreciated. Just be aware if you came to Portland to party then you have to be aware this hostel only allows drinking in the secret garden until 10pm.. upside location is brilliant!

Fun place to catch a comedy show and fairly reasonably priced drinks and snacks, you can be sure to have a good night here with friends. I was here on the final & very special night of the festival with FREEZE! (Tim Key + Tom Basden), & @RayPeacock
