Great little 5 minute tutorial here from +Mark Vang exploring some of the things that you can see and do with a post. I learnt how to grab the link to a post, which I could have done with knowing last week when I was trying to explain something!

It's always nice to hear +Prince the Cockatiel weighing in too!

+Elle Hubbard I need to time Prince. I think he was running on a regular "squeak" cycle during this one. Thanks for sharing!

What I particularly liked about this blog article from +Beth Browning is that it gives me the 10 types of headline, as promised, but also gives examples. I love to have examples as they help me to form the ideas for my own use.

Web design mistakes.

I built my first website using Front Page back in 2001. I certainly made a few of these mistakes back then!

This really useful article from +Mike Allton gives incredibly practical steps to follow to breathe new life into blog posts that are gathering dust instead of working hard. I certainly plan to take a look in that cupboard and bring a few important posts back up to full speed.
Are Your Old Blog Posts Dying?

We all have them. Those old posts that we thought for sure would be a steady stream of search traffic for months and months, yet they're just sitting there. Unloved and unwanted.

Sometimes it's for good reason, like when the information just isn't accurate or complete any more. But if you have strong articles that just aren't getting the kind of attention you think they deserve, REVIVE them!

+Mark Traphagen pointed out a while back that even minor updates and changes can help give a post a boost since Google sees the activity, and today's article dives into both the Why and the When, as well as offering 6 different ways you can breathe fresh life into old blog content, bringing in new search engine traffic and social media interest.

Thanks, and if you have other ideas or examples of articles that you've updated with great success, please share!

I don't know where stock photography fits into photographers plans, but if it does, this looks an interesting deal.

Deposit money in the parking meter if you wish to tie your elephant

Great share by +Ana Hoffman 
When driving in Minnesota, remember: it’s illegal to cross state lines with a duck on your head.


Every family has a black sheep and every state has a driving law that would make you scratch your head.

For instance:

♨ In Michigan it's illegal to sit in the middle of the street to read your newspaper.
♨ In South Carolina it's illegal to store trash in your vehicle.
♨ It's illegal to frown at a police officer in New Jersey.
♨ It's illegal to cross state lines in Minnesota with a duck on your head.
♨ In Idaho it's illegal to drive a motorcycle if you're over the age of 88.

+Anca Bradley has produced a very clear article answering just the question I have long wondered about.

H/t to +Georges-Emanuel Hurubaru for sharing.
I've had a few conversations lately with some of my clients about dashes vs underscores. Although many SEOs say this doesn't really make a difference, I say let's go with what Google says it's "best practices." Thoughts?

Check out my post about it: Why Punctuation Matters: Dashes vs. Underscores in Your Site’s URL:

+Elle Hubbard I think that I might have made a presentation to go with that HOA. It's the one with +Eric Wickham and he had a lot of good tips. The presentation link should be on the YT video but I'll double-check that later.

US Car Hire Specialist, Owner of TripWheels & Florida Homes and Travel, Garden enthusiast
I am the owner of Tripwheels which brings competitive car hire in the USA and Canada to British and European residents without any compromise of our outstanding customer service levels. 

Clients can choose from packages for
  • 1 driver
  • 2 drivers, 
  • lots of drivers or 
  • drivers under 25
All of our pre-paid rental vouchers include all the insurances, taxes and fees required to drive legally in the USA or Canada along with unlimited mileage.

Reservations can be easily made online, or by direct communication with me, for those clients who like to speak with a real person, and have one point of contact to deal with everything for them.

I also own and write Florida Homes and Travel, a monthly newsletter for owners of Florida Vacation homes.  The newsletter has been published continuously since 1989, and I have owned and published it since 2002. 

Since arranging car hire for my subscribers all of that time and often in other parts of the USA to Florida, in 2011 I decided to expand our online car hire coverage to the whole of the USA and Canada, which gave rise to TripWheels.
