#646: Why Can't We Bet On Elections?
In Las Vegas you can bet on all kinds of stuff. One thing you can't bet on: elections. But why? Not long ago, no election was too sacred to wager on, not even the pope's.

You may have noticed that Google has been really shaking things up in their local search results. In this post, we’ll explore some of the things that lawyers and legal marketing folks should be taking into account to earn meaningful attention from potential clients.
 
When potential clients get your name from someone they know and trust, they’re more and more likely to “look you up online.” Most of these “look ups” will take place on Google. Which makes optimizing these local knowledge panels a lawyer’s first opportunity to make a great first impression.

+Gyi Tsakalakis walks you through how some of Google's recent changes to local search (i.e. local knowledge panel) might impact the visibility of #lawyers  in local search results.

It was a BIG shake-up. A great rundown by +Jennifer Slegg -> Google's Local Snack Pack Shake-Up: What You Need to Know #seo
Google recently shook up the local results in its SERPs, killing the local 7-packs in favor of a 3-pack that resembles the mobile experience. This post tells you everything you need to know about the change and what it means for your local marketing.

http://www.localvisibilitysystem.com/2015/08/12/takeaway-from-googles-new-local-3-pack-go-niche-young-man/
Google's dreadful new 3-pack of local results is a push toward AdWords, without a doubt. They may also pass it off as a usability improvement, but it's mostly classic Mountain View skullduggery. But I think it also at least hints at what kinds of local-business results Google wants to show when ...

Very interesting...Maybe clicks from logged in users matter more than anonymous ones.

Primo's (Mo's to many) is the source of a lot of great memories. I grew up less than a full block away. Needless to say, I've had more than my share. If you have the opportunity to order a few hot, fresh slices, that's the way to go. Be sure to ask when the slices came out. If you're in the market for a full pie, my recommendation is square with pepperoni. You can't go wrong with a round pie either, but square is where the magic happens, particularly at the corners.

I've tried 5 of their pies: PARTY BOI, BENNETT’S BEAUTY, LEW-WOW, MR. SANCHEZ and DA DUBA. All good. Party Boi is great. Great decor too. You can tell they put in the extra effort.
