Just spotted a +Quicken Loans AdWords ad w/ the advertiser rating extension.  This is the first time I've seen this rating called out as an advertiser rating -- we've seen the seller rating for e-commerce sites, and product/service ratings for others.

Have you seen any other industries picking up the rating extension?

It's always good when you can test all of your servers and the admins have already patched everything.

Now our competitors...not so much.

I just molested a Google Search Appliance because, you know, it was there.

After a few years of using Solr it's now time to see how the GSA compares when indexing a large number of items and serving a few million queries.

I've been saying this for years, and now it's confirmed -- Apple simply wants to lock you into their products, preventing you from doing anything they do not deem acceptable.

If you have an Android app with corresponding pages on your website you should take a look at app indexing and deep links.  We already know that unique looking results garner more clicks, so why not provide the best experience for your users while also (possibly) increasing click-through.

PunchBowlSocial is coming to #Detroit  and will be the anchor tenant inside of the Z-Lot.  Excited to check out a new hangout right by the office and in the core of downtown!

This is a great addition and was sorely needed.  I know a number of companies at the M@dison that have been waiting for this.
Extra admin flexibility for Google+

Today we’re announcing another level of Google+ controls for admins. By turning off profile discoverability, admins help keep the Google+ accounts of employees from appearing in public web search engine results. It’s easy to use and gives an extra layer of privacy. Learn more.
