Someone (name can not recall) from SEO industry had said, "Allegedly, few websites lost search rankings on Google for specific keywords during the Panda and Penguin rollouts. Google specifically mentions that doorway pages, which are only built to attract search engine traffic, are against their webmaster guidelines."  That means, there is no official confirmation of any big challenge

I know my list pretty well after 16 years. But you would be amazed at how many of my clients with lists of over 100K don't even know what time of day works best.

I'm a little more forgiving when it comes to popups than I used to be. I remember when I would actually get upset when I saw a popup on someone's blog. These days, almost everyone has a popup and they are a very effective list building tool.

HOWEVER!! The absolute worst kind of popup that anyone can use on their blog is a Facebook popup. Here's why:

#1. We all know that the number of likes on a Facebook page mean nothing when it comes to how many people will see your content
#2. If you already have a lot of likes (1,000 or more) why would you annoy your readers with a popup that has nothing to do with building your email list
#3. If you have less than 1,000 likes do you want people to feel sorry for you by showing them how small your following is? Not a good plan
#4. You are missing the opportunity to grow YOUR list and wasting it on Facebook.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take that Facebook popup off your blog and if you must use a popup use it to build your list. You can get started with email marketing with this free trial from AWeber. http://ileane.aweber.com

Any questions?

Good point. That's what makes a Facebook popup kinda pointless.

I just completed "Up and Running with Canva" on Lynda.com
This was is a great course and I highly recommend it. +Justin Seeley  and +Guy Kawasaki are the instructors. Sign up for a free trial of Lynda.com and check out the course if you want to master +Canva 

I'm inspired to change all of my social profiles after taking this course. Now all I need is a new photo.

What is Canva? Canva is an online tool that allows users to choose from hundreds of professionally designed layouts or create their own designs from scratch, for use in presentations, posters, infographics, social media, business cards, and much more. In this course lynda.com staff author Justin Seeley and the chief evangelist of Canva, Guy Kawasaki, discuss the possibilities Canva offers new and established designers alike. Justin will introduce...

I've used Canva a couple times and now knowing it's a course on Lynda with those instructors, I'll definitely be checking it out! Thanks!

Hey there +Roberto Blake I love the way you started the video with showing gratitude for your health. Sorry to hear about the mugging!!
Thanks for the inspiration and I'm really enjoying all of your videos. I found your channel about 3 weeks ago when I was searching to see who else was talking about YouTube cards. Your channel is one of the few that I stuck with after doing that search. 
Appreciate you!!

Thanks so much Ileane, yeah I was a while ago, I mostly don't let the past effect me, beyond recognition of how grateful I am for my present and the person I am now and the future I want to build. I'll be talking about YouTube cards soon. I think ppl jumped the gun and talked about them before even getting the hang of them. I've been going back and putting YouTube cards in the videos I've done this year, which is already over 100 videos. And I've used nearly each option for them, so now I feel talking about them is appropriate and I can say something useful about how to use them.

Now, what might be the best way to decide what we want folks to watch next - and what shows up as what to watch next for people who actually watch that video?
Thanks for the update +Video Creators

Fantastic video +MaAnna Stephenson thanks for the walk through. I don't use the Yoast SEO plugin on most of my blogs but my daughter +Nikki Purvy uses it or her blogs and some of her clients sites too. I agree that some of the extra tabs are a bit of a pain to get to but at least we know where to find everything now :)
