Why not?

Also, it's interesting that the listed value is $500.  I'm really interested to see how this watch turns out.

This was a lot of fun to write, which is why I'm sharing it here.

I also wanted to ask those of you who read this: what do you think of Contributor?

I've read that this isa  big experiment from Google to show that people don't want to pay for content, as a justification for AdSense.  I don't think this is the right answer. I think Google wants this to work, and it has a better chance of working than something like Patreon since it will cover everyone.

I'd be curious to know how revenue from this compares to ads.

+Greg Abbott , it's just for websites, correct? Or does the service block ads in search results as well?

Monday: Bunk Article Takedown Day

1.  The shift to mobile is well documented. In fact, even Business Insider reported that companies NOT optimized for mobile were missing out on sales..  In November of 2014 (I guess they're late on reporting on a lot of things) 
http://www.businessinsider.com/retailers-missing-huge-opportunity-on-mobile-web-2014-11

If you care about selling crap online, you knew this was coming.

2. Google's best practices advocate responsive design, and have for quite some time. A responsive site will display properly on mobile. Major CMS platforms built responsive design into their platforms, including some of the big eCommerce guns. (those that don't can be modified relatively easily)

If you've modified your website since 2008, you knew this was coming.

3. Google started tagging websites as "Mobile Friendly" in search results months ago. This was well documented on sites that cover Google updates.

If you've used your phone to search for local things since Christmas, you knew this was coming.

4. Google announced THIS CHANGE in February via their official blog.  This made it's way out to quite a few news sites. They even published a tool that will tell you if your site will be hit by this change. This is pretty unprecedented for the company because they DON'T want to punish businesses with this change.

If you pay attention to Google news, which you should if you care about your site's SERP position, you knew this was coming.

5. This change will only impact Organic, mobile search results.  If they are searching from their tablets or desktop, it's fine.If you follow other best practices but ignore this one and your website shows up in the Local Carousel, you're fine.If they're searching in maps, you're fine.

If you care that much about Google organic SERPS, you knew this change was coming.

Story
Tagline
Tech Enthusiast, Part-Time Writer, Coffee Professional
Introduction
I'm a Coffee Drinker, Book Reader, and Tech Enthusiast 20Something trying to find my place in a world where only one of the three is popular.

I'm the oldest of three brother's and a native of that place we call the "Philly Burbs" because it's too annoying to take the time explaining which of the 5000 townships my house is actually in.

I'm an Alumnus of Indiana Wesleyan University where I received my Bachelor's in Marketing, a minor in Writing, and an appreciation for changing scenery since Indiana was so flat.

I like talking with people, finding out what they enjoy and what motivates them to do the things they do.  People think I'm a quiet person, but that's only because I don't really like crowds.  I'll strike up a conversation with practically anyone if given the chance, and I love getting to know new people.

I'm still trying to find those opportunities that will let me fill out this section with amazing stories, but I hope to be forced to edit this for those stories rather soon.  

Possible Circles to put me in:
-Tech
-Coffee Lovers
-Gamer
-Political
-Android
-Ingress


The views expressed here are solely my own and not meant to be representative of my employer, my family, my country, fellow tech geeks, or other people who share my name.

I guess I've been luckier than some of the other reviewers here. I work in Old City and so i walk past Four Father's nearly every day. I've had lunch there a few times. Service is not "speedy," but there was only one time where I felt rushed to finish my meal during my normal hour lunch. The food I received was consistently delicious, and they seem to keep their taps well stocked with a rotating selection of beer.
