Why Google+ may deliver the best economic punch on the web! (NEW)
This is an awesome perspective on why Google+ is the place for many marketers...

Extract: "I recently wrote a book called The Content Code and for more than a year I dove deeply into the economic drivers of content and social media. Here’s a statistic that made me pause -- 83 percent of CMOs claim that SOCIAL SHARING is the primary benefit of social media marketing..."

Thank you so much +Mark Schaefer for putting this together, and guest blogging on PYB.
Perfectly timed ready for the #SMMW15  show too!

Have you considered 'social sharing' as the most important aspect of Social Media Marketing? If so, 83% of CMOs agree, and Google+ is built to share!

Tweets in Google Search

They're are coming back in a big way

#googlesearchtips  
Early last month a deal was made to bring back Twitter Google search. Google will now have access to the Twitter “firehose” which will result in more tweets being found in Google search.These two had an agreement between 2009 and 2011 where Google had similar access. This deal should be good for both companies, but it should really benefit Twitter by bringing in non-users to the platform, and converting them to new users. Twitter Google SearchIf ...

🌸 SPRING + SING 🌸
Woh! It's the First Day of Spring, a solar eclipse, a supermoon and The International Day Of Happiness! That's a quad-awesome situation! We're little seeds ready to bloom together, so here's a hint of a my new song "Bloom"... 

EXPLORE THE SONG
This is the little "just getting started" demo track that closes out my special interactive sneak peek into my creative process that I shared last week! If you missed it go exploring inside my little songwriter brain with this dynamic crazycool project with this new thing called Sway: https://sway.com/nLa7rrYhdCmzRyQd  

READ MY GUEST BLOG
In fact, "Bloom" caught the attention of Microsoft (who build Sway) and they asked me to write a guest blog post for them about it! You can read it here: http://bit.ly/1x1mK6f and I'll share some excerpts from it later tonight!

XO, Daria
 
Ps. Today also marks the first day that I'm back in action! I'm aliiiiive! Did you notice the radio silence? I've been a sneeze-monster stuck in bed for the entire week! It was the meanest, stubborn-est cold-fever-thing ever. Ugh. So happy to rejoin the land of the living! Woohoo!!!

On Mobile-friendly Becoming a Search Ranking Factor on 4/21 - Q&A Hangout With Google's John Mueller

This morning's meeting with John Mueller has a trove of answers & recommendations regarding Google's big announcement that (goo.gl/evUTPX), Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, meaning more #mobilefriendly  sites in search results.


So here I've time stamped the Q&A's on this topic:
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
0:25   John announces mobile-friendliness is becoming a ranking factor.

0:55   Mobile-friendly by Default a presentation
          by John Mueller, Google Feb 27, 2015

9:22   If a site is not mobfr (my mobile-friendly abbr.) what are Google's suggestions.

10:50   Is mobfr ranking going to start immediately on announced date, or will it be a rollout over a period of time?

11:59   When you rollout the update, are nonmobile-friendly sites going to drop down, or will we still see these ranking in higher positions?

31:25   John's giggle that's fun to click replays. :D


Here I managed to squeeze in a few minutes for my own questions on the mobfr ranking changes (Yes, please excuse my cold. LOL.) :


44:40   Will mobile search results now become significantly different from regular search, or will this change affect all platforms?

45:24   Was there significant restructuring needed to separate mobile search results rankings from desktop search?

46:18  Will mobile search specifically be looking just to surface mobfr content, or will it also be looking to demote non-mobfr?

47:32   Are the factors listed in our WMT going to be the specific factors affecting our ranking, or is that just as a notification, something that operates entirely separately?

48:44   So it would be safe to assume the WMT data that we're seeing, is the content that is being used for that ranking?

49:33   Of the specific WMT ranking factors, which would you say are most important that they will more strongly affect these changes?

50:54   Will users reaction within mobile be playing strong on results?


51:50   from Mihai, is the affect mobile ranking factors give to mobfr websites simply black & white, or is it degrees, like depending on scores?

53:20   Would it be a problem if interstitials show up a minute, or so later, or do these have to be shown immediately?

56:53   On behalf of another user, I ask a question regarding an interesting search result [allegedly] seen on mobile, where certain mobile results are preceeded by a red Slow label. Here is that image  goo.gl/gjGeP4   which appears to show Google experimenting with labeling slow loading results with a bold red tag.

Circle of appreciation.
Thank you all for being a part of my life over the past year. It's been an incredible ride, living across three continents and pushing the projects forward with your support. Back in California once more I realise how far we have come together. Keep enjoying the waves, and have a great weekend, one and all.

I have to admit that I never thought on using a detailing service for my car, but with many kids, and such a busy life as a business consultant, sometime can become almost impossible to keep my car and the family car clean. This is why I'm so happy that I call the guys at American Mobile Detailing.. they are really masters on what they do, they turn my dirty ride into a brand new automobile again. Yep, they were that good. Also Jaime and everyone there are very nice and friendly, I couldn't recommend anyone else. Two thumbs!

First you need to know that this is the only real full side Mexican restaurant in the area, which is excellent, the food is great, they serve a lot and the prices are fair, compare to others. Also don't forget to go on Sundays for a free mariachi show which is great for celebrations!
