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).

This is good to know.  I've been using a Google Voice number myself.  
 
This is true for any business! Look out...

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

Simplicity is often lost as products evolve and different people put their stamp on them. It's tough to peel back the layers and get back to basics with a long established product, but sometimes it's the only way forward.
 
“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked.” -J.Gall, Gall's Law http://52weeksofux.com/post/743059572/galls-law

I posted this on Twitter yesterday and people loved it. It's something I want to think about more while we're building PlexusEngine.com, which by the way is where I found this article (in the Plexus report on Human Computer Interaction). We run the risk of making things too complicated, but they were certainly born of something simple. I think I need to tell the story more simply though. Sorry to be mysterious and yet talk about it, I'm doing private beta sales while we finish the product and before we launch it to the public (hopefully early Summer) - so what I have to talk about publicly is in large part learning how to sell.

I sure like that quote though, don't you? Make something simple that works, and then it will evolve complexity if it needs to - don't start out with something complex. Hmmmm....

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.

"...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.
