Introduction
My company is Expand2Web, where we provide tools and training to help businesses succeed online. I live in Silicon Valley with my wife and two daughters. 

When you follow my G+ stream you'll find posts about:

  • Building and tweaking WordPress Websites
  • Local Search Engine Optimization - I'm a contributor to the Local Search Ranking Factors report
  • Social Media - I live in the SF Bay Area and visit Google, Facebook and other startups regularly
  • Design - I study design and customer experience and try to employ it on my site and in my products
  • Digital Photography - I'm a total amateur who appreciates good digital and HDR photography, and I'm trying to learn to shoot and share good photos!
  • Travel - I love to travel and share my photos and experiences
  • Sports - I like to skimboard, play hockey and other sports too so sometimes I'll post about them
  • Books - I read a ton, and do video reviews of the best ones

The old saying that "perfect is too good to be true" applies to online reviews as well it turns out. A recent review study between PowerReviews and Northwestern University surfaced that a 5 star rating wasn't the most trusted by consumers to purchase a product. Consumers displayed more trust and…

Darren Shaw is one of the nicest people in the search business. It probably has to do with his Canadian sensibilities. While the saying may indicate that nice guys finish last, Darren has been able to turn his kindness into a thriving business focused on local search marketing. His business, Whitesp…

I watch my kids pick out donuts, cupcakes and cake, it's all about the sprinkles. I talk with marketers, managers and small business owners about our customer feedback platform, it's all about the reviews. While online reviews and sprinkles are exciting, attract eyes and help sell the product, don't miss…

It’s never easy running a business. This is particularly true if you are running your own online review management program and are sending your customers to a Google URL to leave you a review. Google, in their infinite wisdom, seems to change their link to leave a review more frequently…

Clients and others often ask me how they can redesign their site or migrate to a new CMS and not end up committing seppuku in the local search results. I tell them that although there are probably a hundred checklist items they might concern themselves with, only a few really matter.

I worked out with Steve Saxe - he designed an amazing program for me to help me stay active in my favorite sports (surfing and hockey). The facilities and staff are amazing too. Highly recommended!

I took my family here for a nice sunset dinner, and we were very disappointed. The food was super expensive and not good at all. I had the Macadamia Crusted fish, which was super dry. My kids split the lobster tail - it was so small it wasn't enough even for one of them. We spent way too much on this poor meal and lackluster service - I will not come back here again.

Dr. Fong and his staff always take the time to listen to me and answer my questions. My previous dentist had done some new fillings that changed my bite. Dr. Fong was able to get it corrected for me. My wife and I have both been going here for years. We really like how we are treated by the whole team there. I live in West San Jose on the border of Cupertino and Saratoga so the location is convenient too.

The Macadamia Crab wontons are our favorite! Sit outside by the ocean with your feet in the sand at the barefoot bar. We love this place.

David helped me with some difficult structured data problems in my product and website. The changes he suggested made a huge difference. Not only is he an expert at schema markup and structured data, he's also a pleasure to work with. Thanks for your help David!

Amazing seafood at good prices. My wife and I were in Pacific Grove for our anniversary last weekend, and stumbled on Passion Fish. The staff was super friendly, and the atmosphere was very nice. I had the shrimp in black pepper and rum sauce, my wife had the Crispy Tilapia - both were amazing dishes. Also the Baked Gorgonzola salad was great. We were also pleased that the prices were decent - much more reasonable than restaurants in the SF Bay Area. Anyway, we had a great time. Highly recommended!
