Yes.. I agree that "Conflict Avoidance" is a definite key to the erosion of relationships!!!

The "relationship action plan" is not me being purposeful is being real to everyone involved.

One of the ways Google+ is being monitized is by allowing you to promote your post content on the Google Display Network

This post from +G+GoTo Gal  gives us more insight on this. 

Will you be using this for your post?

Reach more people with your Google+ content
Promote your post on the Google Display Network

+Post ads help your content reach new audiences across the web. Now you can turn your post into an interactive display ad with a quick click of a button - simply choose Promote this post from the drop down menu of selected posts on your Google+ page, and you'll be taken to a new page where you can preview what your ad will look like, get the link to promote it or continue directly to AdWords.

I'm not sure why some posts have that options and others don't.. still, this can be a huge resource to local business and any marketer who wants to begin turning conversations into conversions.

And if you wondered how Google will monetize Google+ - this is just one of the ways :)

Penguin 3.0 Update - the SKINNY

Penguin 3.0 is done rolling out.

What else do we know about this much anticipated (some good, some bad) update?

Here's the Skinny (based on +Jennifer Slegg's post :

International hit first

Penguin rolled out on international Google sites including, and first, instead of rolling out within the US first.

 +Glenn Gabe noticed US starting to roll out on Sunday morning.

Internal pages ranking after homepage removed

This is interesting: there are some reports that homepages for sites have been deindexed, but internal pages are replacing the homepage in the search results.

It is unknown if this is a partial penalty or if it is an issue with a longer roll out of Penguin and eventually those internal pages will be deindexed as well.

301 redirect penalties

Seems like Google is catching on to sites that utilized 301 redirects to get around previous penalties.

Affiliate sites hit hard

Link profiles

Those who stuck with typical link profiles for sites that matched link profiles for sites that were penalized in the last update got hit this time around too.  (see +Glenn Gabe's screenshot below)

Automated ranking & spam link network programs hit

No penalty notices yet


COMMON SENSE: If you got hit, you need to clean up the problems before the next update goes out. 

It's our hope (and speculation) that Penguin will start updating on a more regular cycle now - more like Panda - so if you want to see your site out of Penguin hole, you'd better start digging.

Again, for more visit +Jennifer Slegg's

Basic Information
I Coach Pastors and Leaders and Business Owners How to Use Wordpress As A Marketing and Management Tool
    I was born and raised in Baltimore,MD and became a technology enthusiast in my early teens by tinkering with different electronic devices along with experiencing the joys of exploring cyberspace with my first computer, which was a Commodore64.
     After Graduating high school, I joined the US Navy, which was the start of my electronics career.  From this,  I have worked as a technician in electronics manufacturing and consumer electronics.  Then, in 1999 I learned HTML and started developing websites.
     Then in 2007, I began using "The Wordpress Platform" to build  websites and I haven't looked back since.

     So, after using Wordpress for several years myself I wanted to teach others how to install and maximize this wonderful platform.  This led me to develop a website specifically for the purpose of teaching people how to launch and maximize their own self-hosted wordpress blog/website. In fact, in 2012 was launched for this purpose.

My goal is to personally help 1000 people launch their Webministry or Micro-Business website.
