I stumbled upon this helpful #regex guide from +Mike Arnesen for a second time, so figured I'd share it. Knowing some basic regex rules is critical for getting the most out of #googleanalytics . I've used regex a lot in the past to create rewrite rules in .htaccess files, but it's been a few years. This guide is a good refresher or starting point.

Soul Storage Movie With Paul Giamatti

Believe me, when you get rid of your soul everything makes so much more sense. Everything becomes, well, functional, and purposeful

Watched Cold Souls last night with my wife. I love these off-the-beaten-path movies you've never heard of, but that turn out to be good. Some dark humor here in a Woody Allen meets Charlie Kaufman kind of way (I'm a big fan of both).

Will Guest Posts End Up Being Penalized?

Would you find the information credible on the front page of the New York Times if the title said: “Guest post: 10 Ways To Improve Your Home Value”? Stop using the words “guest post,” “guest blog post,” “guest author,” or whatever phrase you’re using.

I think this is a great point.  Major publications use freelance writers all the time, but they don't explicitly state that the writer is a freelancer or a guest writer.  

This reminds me of when reciprocal linking was big and everyone had "Links" pages. Then people thought they'd be clever and call them "Resources" so Google wouldn't be able to catch on to what they were doing. How'd that work out?  It just goes to show that it's a bad idea to take the SEO tactic du jour and apply it literally on your site the exact same way millions of other sites are doing it.

This is good to know.  I've been using a Google Voice number myself.

"...what will you think when Google does add those to its ever-growing list of 'things we don't really like anymore'?" via +Julie Joyce 

Good question. The thing is: every time the algorithm changes significantly, new techniques are introduced that maximize results within the new system. And once the technique du jour becomes too heavily exploited, Google change the algorithm to address it. In the end, any "techniques" that are scalable will ultimately be added to that list of "things we don't really like anymore," a point that's been made and discussed for quite a while.

The irony is that the more Google pushes the SEO community toward traditional marketing and PR, where traffic is gained directly through vertical sites, social media, earned subscribers, etc., the less reliant all of us will be on Google.

I'm wondering if Google+ has plans to support cashtags (eg. $AAPL). Cashtags add context efficiently.  Eg. Apple's #siri vs. SiriusXM stock ($siri).
