It seems to be about time spent in the water...And needing lots of it to become half decent. Just wish I had started earlier! No better feeling than getting to my feet and catching a wave. However fleeting...

Google+: Looking Behind The Scenes of Profiles and Posts

I love Google+. In addition to using it for content discovery, this rapidly growing social network is an incredible tool for micro blogging, networking and relationship building.

While Google+ can effectively be used as a micro blogging platform, it lacks many of the features that give blog owners using a CMS more control of the HTML elements, tags and styling of their blog.

To help Google+ users understand what is happening behind the scenes, I’ve dug into the source code of Google+ posts and pages to show you elements that affect how your posts appear in Google+ and in Google Search. In this guide, you’ll learn what tags are added automatically and how to optimize the elements you have control over including:

☞ Titles
☞ Meta descriptions
☞ Canonical tags
☞ Alt attributes
☞ No follow attributes
☞ Rel=author
☞ Target="_blank"

Big Google+ roll out news.

Last December, we introduced +Post ads to a limited number of AdWords advertisers as a way to amplify their content to new audiences. Starting today, we’re making +Post ads available to all advertisers with at least 1000 Google+ followers:

See how brands such as +Audi USA  and +Topman  are using +Post ads to drive more participation with their brand’s content across the web.

The tide is rising for Google+ (NEW BLOG)
This Google+ thing is going to happen folks...
Check out this timely post on adoption rates, a little speculation, and a lot of 'ocean' metaphor.
With Plus Post ads now starting to roll out, we will see the bar to entry for brands to enter lower - they simply won't have to work 'as hard' on building Pages to gain 'eye balls'; at the same time, the field of 'social ad optimization' will begin to emerge on Google+. Exciting times.
#googleplus   #pluspostsads  
Do you see Google+ really starting to fly? Well, here is one way to look at how the tide is rising on this incredible experience.

Loved this place. Very cool bar, with super friendly bar and waiting staff. I especially liked the bar girl who looked like a pixie; cute and with some awesomely entertaining facial expressions. Can I say that on a Google Local review? Yes, yes I can. Anyway, this place has some style, good music and the clientele were lovely too. And it is dog friendly outside. Recommended. p.s. if the beautiful lady working behind the bar would like to give in touch then drop me an email to...ok, that would be a bit much, but yes I really should have asked you name and I hope you don't mind your me making your likeness to a pixie. You are especially adorable when you bite your lower lip after you talk. Really should stop this review now as it is getting a little gushing. Ok, I'm gone :)

The best fish tacos so far! I went with the grilled Mahi-Mahi with the spicy sauce (the one in the fridge). Love this place.

The best Indian restaurant in Bristol. I have eaten times+ over 12 years. The staff are so helpful and the food is so darn tasty. I tend to ask for "no oil" and they always make sure I am happy. What else is there to say? Just give it a go!
