Alert: Google AdWords will automatically generate sitelinks based on your site’s content if you don’t create your own.

Discovered by +Farhad Divecha​ and reported in the Google Partners Community, Google AdWords is automatically generating sitelinks for Google AdWords campaigns. The advertiser gets no notification of this or any opportunity to opt-in, or easily opt-out quickly.

This could mean that you're paying for clicks to pages on your site which do not convert well.

Google AdWords Automatic SiteLinks mean you could easily end up increasing the cost per conversion and getting fewer sales or leads for your AdWords budget.

How to Use Google+ Collections

Lots of people asking how best to set up and use Google+ Collections; in this short T-Time show (coffee this time!) I share some tips on how I create mine and what the options are.

If you're stuck on anything digital, please ask and I'll try and include it in next week's show :)

The Fragmentation of Social Media

With Facebook claiming 1.4bn users and a typical user spending 2.4hrs per day on Social Media sites, it would be fair to expect a monopoly or oligopoly of Social Platforms dominating the space.

But that’s not entirely true.

Having huge players like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest in the Social Media spectrum hasn’t deterred others from entering the market to offer their own platforms. These aren’t, “me too” businesses, these are typically platforms for specific audiences or for a specific purpose.

Among those platforms, Google+, particularly with the new focus on communities and collections is one rapidly carving out lots of niches.

Facebook claims 1.4bn users and a typical user spends 2.4hrs per day on social media, so should we expect some fragmentation of social media platforms?

Share Google Analytics data and remarketing lists more efficiently using manager accounts (MCC)

Now when you import your goals, website metrics, remarketing lists, or other data from Google Analytics, you'll only need to do it once. And whenever you add a new AdWords account to your manager account, it will automatically be linked with the same Analytics properties.

Great stuff. That'll save some time. :)

Nicely done +Mark Tillison

Something I have been mentioning recently, is that as well as showing up in search results, collections can also be bookmarked just like any web page. Great for delivering content to followers who aren't on G+.

The 3 Cs of Google+
#newGplus #howtogoogleplus

Collections: Help you organize posts around topics, and let your followers choose what types of posts they want to see from you. If you find yourself posting a lot about a specific topic, it’s a good idea to create a collection. People who really want to read about this subject will engage more as you are providing content they are interested on, and people who don’t want to hear about it, won’t be turned off. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Communities: You can have conversations with people who share your interests. Different than collections in which only the owner can post, communities allow every member to post. The advantage is that invites exchange of ideas, discussions and different points of view on a subject. The disadvantage is that it requires a lot of work from the moderator to keep the posts on topic and monitoring behaviour while trying to allow everyone to express their ideas.

Connections (or circles): You can add people/pages to your circles. Also called follow.
When you follow a person/page, posts they share with you will show up in your home stream, unless your settings stop this from happening.
Someone you follow doesn't have to follow you back, so they might not see what you post.
Make sure you follow because you are interested on the posts and not as a complimentary follow back. Google will suggest people, communities and collections based on who you follow. In the end, who you follow will have a big influence in your G+ experience.

Wow! The G+ team are on this. To their great credit, I can't ever recall a social platform or software company listening so intently and responding so quickly to its users.

...and Circles are slowly coming back to the fore. Yay!

Bravo, Google. Bravo!

I love it here. I've made lots of friends and spoken at conferences on why Google+ is such an important strategy for business success.

I created some stuff you might find useful.

The Twitter Addict's Guide to Google+ explains the terminology and basics in a way that Twitter users will understand, drawing comparisons and differences between the two.

Google+ for Business is a complete guide which accompanies my talks which will take you through creating an effective profile, using simple techniques to build your brand and engage an audience, right through to using Communities.

Bagels in New York were on our bucket list. When we spotted this place for a breakfast trip, we weren't disappointed. Plenty of choice of bagel flavours, sizes and toppings, I worked out somewhere in the region of 1,352 combinations including toasting or not and larger sizes. I couldn't even remember our two options and was amazed at how the staff managed it! Food was great, staff were very friendly and accommodating but only slightly let down by the seating and space. For the budget, no real complaints. Well worth a breakfast visit.

Amazing. Great service. Food was awesome and the waiting staff attentive without rushing us, despite it being VERY busy during our Friday evening visit. Warning for fellow Brits: don't expect 6 oz, 8 oz etc. steaks. It's just "a steak". There's no weight. They are huge though, so careful on the starter and side dish orders. Whilst it was by far our most expensive meal out, it was worth every dime, but I certainly wouldn't be doing it every night.

Allow plenty of time. We expected to be in the museum for 1-2 hours and we're amazed to discover that we'd been in there 3.5! This is like no museum you've ever been in elsewhere and is emotionally exhausting. I actually reached a point where I couldn't absorb any more information or emotion. You have been warned. Very well presented, very respectful and a celebration of the heroism of New Yorkers on that fateful day. I was also very pleased to see no blame or finger-pointing and a fair, considered explanation of the culprits and an admission of the failures that contributed to this dreadful event. If you're experiencing New York for more than a few days, this is a must-see.

Great location within walking distance of Times Square, Central Park, Bloomingdales, Empire State and the Rockefeller Centre amongst others. The Chrysler Building could be viewed from our window too. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room spacious, with the usual trimmings you'd expect; big screen TV with plenty of channels, desk, comfortable chairs and table. Couldn't fault it at all. Thank you.
