Bullet Journal is an all-new system for note-taking that's better than any schmancy designer notebook.

Google turns into Franz Mesmer. I'd love to see the science behind this. #cancer   #mesmerism

Could be an interesting shift, if it's true.

Looks like you might get mixed signals from GWT. Mobile-friendly Testing Tool is not hooked up to the Google Page Speed Insights yet. Good catches here by +Alan Bleiweiss on +Search Engine Journal.

Just in case you missed my post from yesterday, here are some questions enterprise SEO's should be asking in consideration of Google's recent mobile-friendliness announcement.
If you were at all surprised by Google’s announcement last week that it will make mobile-friendliness a ranking factor in mobile searches globally, starting on April 21st, you probably had not heard the subtle but steady drum-beat emanating from Mountain View since 2012. As early as April of 2012, Google Webmaster Central began providing recommendations …

In 2115, when our descendants look back at our society, what will they condemn as our greatest moral failing?

D'oh! 
Are you a well-known brand? Well when a searcher types in your brand name into the Google search box, Google Instant will auto suggest your competitor’s names as well. For example, if you search for Macy’s, but don’t quite hit enter right away, Google will auto suggest eight different competitors to Macy’s. It does not …

Always turn to the data before stating something with absolute confidence. Luckily, I have access to a mountain of data, so if any of you have any hypotheses you'd like to test, let me know.
Sometime last year, there was a Whiteboard Friday post on Moz which got the industry shaking in its boots and sparked a huge debate on dozens of reputable blogs within the SEO industry. The main id

I'm really excited to take on this new role. I've been a passionate advocate of search experience optimization over search engine optimization for a long time. You can SEO the hell out of your site and your content, but if your users don't get what they need and want, your success won't last. My goal is to help enterprises tap into their potential and drive the best experiences for their users, from search to conversion ... and beyond.

  • Ceremonial Magic
  • Comparative Religion
  • Cosmogony

Convenient, delicious and healthy food. The price is slightly above moderate, but you really pay for the convenience of being able to throw a healthy pre-cooked dinner into the microwave and have breakfast, lunch or dinner within minutes. Compared to My Fit Foods, Snap Kitchen has a much better tasting line-up of food, however, for weight-loss, I have found better results on My Fit Foods. I use Snap Kitchen for my more indulgent meals. They're flavorful and consistent. My one beef with Snap Kitchen is their mark-up on their snack items. Their Fage is about $1.30 more expensive than HEB. I understand HEB gets bulk rates, but a 100% markup? Aside from that, I'm a fan.

I'm a big fan of Asahi Imports. It's a family-owned and operated Japanese grocery store. From the outside, it looks pretty small, but they manage to pack in a lot of inventory to meet all of your Japanese food, snack and drink needs. Additionally, they have a variety of Japanese gifts, cookware, and personal care items. Lately, they've been selling limited supplies of onigiri (rice balls), which is really nice. And they've offered Japanese cooking classes as well. The staff is always friendly and helpful. While I feel like the prices are a bit inflated (due to either the lack of competition or the cost of importing these goods), I really don't have anything bad to say about them.

A most beautifully polished and decorated turd. For the kind of money you will pay to live here, you should expect much, much more. While the facade is nice and at first glance, the apartments are nice looking, the core construction of this complex is extremely flimsy. You can hear everything. The walls are thin, the floors and ceilings are thin, the windows and doors are thin. While the complex is not on the UT bus line, there is still a large number of UT students -- the worst kind: rich, spoiled and completely self-absorbed. Expect parties to keep you up at night, because security can't do anything about it. Rent ranges from $1700 to $2400 per month, so you should expect better. What that means in reality is that you'll pay about $5000 to get out of your lease if the noise gets to be too much. If you're like most people, that means you're stuck. The leasing agent I had was unscrupulous enough to blatantly lie to me in order to get my signature on that lease. Trust me. Do not throw your money away. Avoid Mosaic at Mueller regardless of whatever move-in specials they're offering. The best thing they can do is tear down this building and rebuild it using skilled laborers and better materials. If you won't listen to me, do yourself a favor and invest in a few white noise machines. You're gonna need them in order to be able to sleep at night.
