Renaming products isn't just a Google thing. Brands have been doing it forever, usually to create new interest in a dying product or for some new executive to put their personal brand on it.

Anyone else notice that the "Local" selection is missing from the menu? I just caught this today ... it was there last Friday.

Thanks. I see that +Barry Schwartz is also reporting on its removal. It's interesting that it wasn't used much ... I used it all the time. Then, again, I'm not everybody. :-)

If you ever wonder if it's really all that important to keep your WordPress site updated with the latest software - Consider that I just spend 1/2 an hour going through Google Alerts looking at spammy linkbuilding activity on subdomains set up on hacked WordPress sites. KEEP YOUR SITES UPDATED FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

Introduction

I’m a Marketing Technologist and have been working in web marketing for almost 15 years. My first experience was as a free-lancer doing web sites for local businesses such as car dealerships and an art gallery. Later, I ran an online rental property referral web site aimed at assisting military people find homes before they moved.

I currently work for Rockfish as Associate Director, Search Strategy and specialize in website optimization and online reputation management. Before that, I was Webmaster for Wilsonart International where I was involved in everything from social media to server administration to web development.

I stopped in here for a business lunch with colleagues and clients. The service was very good. We got there just a little before noon and were seated immediately. The place did fill up pretty quickly after we arrived. I had the Pollo Verde. This was a stuffed and rolled chicken breast with a green chile sauce, rice and asparagus. It was very, very good. I also enjoyed the salsa that came with the chips. We didn't hang around for dessert. I believe I will stop by again and save room next time.

A friend recommended this place, so my wife and I stopped by to give it a try. This is a very nice, family-type business. We had the Caprese as an appetizer. It was very good and a great start to our meal. We both had veal: She had the Veal Saltimbocca and enjoyed it very well. I had the Veal Parmigian which I did enjoy. They were out of cannoli, so we had the Chocolate Eruption. It was quite good. I loved the bread, too. While we were waiting to be seated, I saw several people come in to get pizzas to go. As they opened the boxes to check them before they left, I could see they looked very good. I think I'll have to stop by again and give one a try.

Stopped here for dinner with a friend one evening when I found myself Downtown. The service was great. We were seated immediately and had drinks and food very quickly. The food was good. It's not really authentic German, but it wasn't bad. I had the Jaegerschnitzel with fries and potato salad. The schnitzel, fries and gravy were good, but I didn't care for the potato salad. The latter was a bit too vinegary for me. Others may like it that way, though. Overall this is a pretty good place. I will likely stop by again when in the area.

I love to visit Waffle House restaurants when I travel. For the most part, they are very nice, with great people and great food. This one, however, is not as nice as most of the others I've visited. First, the place was dirty. As we came in and looked someplace to sit I noticed that all the tables needed to be wiped down. We sat at the cleanest one we could find, but it was still sticky with syrup. The men's room was filthy. My wife went to the ladies and found there was no TP available. The food was good, except for the waffle. It wasn't cooked long enough. To their credit, I think the cook was new based on his conversations with the other staff. The service was great. No complaints there. Overall, if you're looking for a Waffle House in the Dallas area, give this one a pass and check out one of the other locations.

I went here on a Sunday after church with some friends. At first I was a little apprehensive because the place was empty. That apprehension was much misplaced. Los Reyes is a hidden gem tucked away in the shopping center by an old HEB. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. I had Migas, which is something that few places do well. It was great - not too dry and not too soggy and had great flavor. The salsa served was outstanding. The restaurant is really conveniently located and is certainly worth checking out.

I met a friend for lunch here recently. Very nice place. I had the burger. It was quite good. The bun was toasted just right, the patty was done just the way I like it. The toppings were served on the side, which made it nice for me to stack the burger up the way I like it. The side of coleslaw was quite interesting. I'm not sure what was in it, but it was very different and delicious. The service was great, too. It's a little pricy compared to other lunch venues in the area, but it is a solid place. Check it out.

I've stayed at this hotel twice in the past couple of years and have had good experiences each time. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. There was a fridge and microwave in each room as well as a coffee maker. There was plenty of hot water in the shower. The shower had good pressure, too. The only thing I didn't care for was the lighting in the bathroom - it's a little too dim. Even with both sets of light on, it wasn't quite bright enough for me. The people at the front desk were great. They were very friendly and helpful. If you're in the area, I recommend you stay here. It's a nice place to stay at a competitive price.
