Need Your Help Testing Google+'s Impact on Search

It's been a long time since a test was run to see if Google+ activity could impact search. http://www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/introducing-the-tardigrade/ <----- Would love your help with this URL

It's a random page I found while searching after hearing about the #Tardigrade on Cosmos. Currently, the page ranks #26 in Google US non-personalized results.

Help needed:
1) Please don't link to this page from anywhere except Google+
2) Please do click the link from Google+ and take a gander.
3) Please do share the link itself in your own Google+ account, and +1 others' shares of the link. Feel free to use photos, too :-)
4) Please don't share the post link directly on other social networks

Thanks so much!

p.s. I'm aware G folks might see this and take manual action, but I'm hoping that won't be the case.

How to Improve Search Ranking Correlation Studies

Breakthrough thinking from our CTO +Russ Jones that is a must read if you want to do more accurate search correlation studies.

"A key problem with much of SEO is that rank order is deceptive. We perceive sites as positions 1 through 10, each with a fixed integer position when, in reality, their proximity to one another in terms of actual relationship-to-the-query scores can vary greatly. It is this hidden, underlying score that is key to many SEO functions – keyword competitiveness and ranking factor determination to name two. Below, I discuss a simple, algorithm-agnostic method to determine relative rank gaps and then explain a few key uses of this information."

WMT numbers don't make that kind of sense.

What are proxy servers mainly used for in the SEO industry?
SEO’s use Proxy Servers to hide or change their true IP address. There are several reasons you might want to do this:

If you access competitor websites a lot for research, their webservers log your IP address and may be able to trace your activities back to you. By routing your requests via a Proxy Server, your true identity is hidden

Hmm, seem to have lost my authorship in search results. Maybe inactivity on G+? #davetest

I've tried quite a few combinations across different domains I write for and it looks like I'm out of luck :S

The bar is fine, and is generally a good place to go if it's quiet. Unless you happen to run into any of the security staff with the macho chip on their shoulders. They can easily ruin your night as they are extremely unprofessional. I'd say it's a good place to go during the week when it's quiet, but avoid going on weekends or during any sporting events.

I've ordered some pro biotic products before with no problems at all, quality was as expected and the product was promptly delivered. However, the second time I ordered, the delivery company decided to leave my product with an uknown neighbour and I never received it. The reason why I'll continue to purchase from the Finchley Clinic is because the delivery manager Rachel Worthy has been so amazing at dealing with this problem and she's sending out a new product to me with specific instructions for the delivery company. The products are good, but the customer service I received was good enough to make me publicly praise the company. Thank you Rachel, I'm sure I'll get my package and thanks for being so nice.

Most Subways are pretty good, but this one is a different story. The only reason why I eat there is because it's close to work, and I'm definitely going to stop. Try asking for lettuce on your sub at this location, you'll get a sprinkle. Try asking for a tiny bit more, you'll get an evil look - but sure, they'll do it. Oh, and these employees are worse than used car salesmen. Double cheese? No. Double meat? No. Are you sure? Yes. Come on? No. That's not even the best part, when you're paying at the cash, they'll typically try to charge you for a meal regardless, until you say NO, and respond NO again after they try again. I wouldn't say anything if it was a one off, or two or even three times. It's everytime. I think to myself, are these guys getting commission on double meat and cheese? Is it worth harassing customers for? Either way, hopefully this franchise owner sees this review and decides to change things up. I won't be coming back unless it changes. (Sept 2011)

I had ACL surgery about 2 years ago and the doctors told me it was a speedy recovery, since I was athletic. Turns out that I was in excruciating pain and it didn't go as smoothly post-op. I went to see John who took a personal interest in helping me, and sure enough after some stim therapy and cycling in the office I was starting to get back to normal. I can't thank these guys enough for how well they treated me and helped me out. I highly recommend Parkdale physio, thanks guys!

I was skeptical about getting my hair cut in Brixton, but I'm happy to say I got really lucky by finding Dorian. My second great hair cut, great service and they even let me watch the football on an Ipad. I'm really impressed by these guys, and I found my new barber :)
