Twitter recently released their official WordPress plugin. You can get access to the Twitter Analytics by connecting your WordPress.com account through JetPack. If you are not using the JetPack Stats you can still can get Twitter Analytics data right inside your WordPress admin console by installing the SkyStats plugin. You can find it in the WordPress Repository by searching "Twitter Dashboard".

#Yelp   gets even more important for local   #SEO . Thanks, +CNET!
Yahoo's search results will feature Yelp listings and reviews 'in the coming weeks,' The Wall Street Journal reports, citing an inside source. Read this article by CNET News staff on CNET News.

Anybody else noticing anything dodgy going on with their ISP lately?   #netflix   #verizon  

One of the top comments: "If it's not illegal for a provider to restrict information/services from rivals, why wouldn't they? It's frightening that an ISP is allowed to decide what information/services are accessible to me, based on their political leanings and business interests."

Hmmm....
A recent court ruling makes it legal for carriers to discriminate between kinds of Web traffic. Is Verizon already doing it?

All the blood, sweat, and tears are totally worth it! First dedicated #business dashboard for WordPress!
 
A lot of work went into creating SkyStats; a lot of work, sweat, and maybe even a couple very manly tears! Learn more about why we wanted to create a better #wordpress   #dashboard   #plugin ! 
While we're HUGE fans of WordPress, we felt that the default dashboard didn't fit the goals of web development. So after months of planning, creating, and testing, we are proud to bring you a better WordPress dashboard for business - SkyStats! Find out why it's perfect here!

Don't be ashamed, pig-headed entrepreneurs! What others may see as a flaw can actually be an asset!

Read Edgar A. Guest's "It Couldn't Be Done" and be inspired! http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/173579
 
#Entrepreneurs  - do you love to prove people wrong? Apparently that is a common trait among successful business owners! #PersonalityPride  
During a recent event, four highly successful entrepreneurs talked about proving others wrong, hiring great people and being in it for the long haul.

Story
Tagline
Embracing the challenge of staying ahead in the content optimization, social media marketing and guest blogging scene!
Introduction
I am 1 of 11 kids, 8 of whom were boys, so I grew up loving rope swings, jumping bikes and wooden sword fights. One day my dad brought home a computer and my world was opened to the wonders of Windows 3.1 and dial-up internet access. Even though technology has (thankfully) progressed far beyond those systems, I still consider SkiFree and Myst to be two of my favorite computer games.

After graduating from Dallas Baptist University I became intrigued with search engine optimization and content creation and began working with MLB Web Design. After integrating web marketing into our field of services, the company transformed into Thrive Internet Marketing and I went from working on general SEO tasks to optimized content creation, blog marketing and social media. 

I love writing content for every new client we gain since it allows me to research new topics and gain information I'd otherwise miss. Inbound marketing is also a fascinating profession because it requires me to stay on my toes with adapting to each new search engine update. Another job bonus is I get to work with a great web design and marketing team who inspire me with their creativity and expertise.

I love Dr. Okubo! Like most people, I'm nervous about getting my teeth checked, but Dr. Okubo was a very friendly and reassuring orthodontist. He put me at ease and I felt quite comfortable while he was checking my teeth and fitting me for a retainer. Before I knew it the appointment was over and I was on my way out. My retainer fits perfectly and - beyond the usual pressure that comes when you're getting your teeth pushed into place - there's very little discomfort. The staff at Okubo Orthodontics has been very helpful, always willing to assist me when I call in with newbie questions about caring for my retainer. Dr. Okubo even gave me a call to check up on how the retainer was working out. I highly recommend Okubo Orthodontics if you live in the Midvale area!
