I rarely subscribe to any email lists and when I do - I pretty much never stay on it for over 2 months. Only on 2 email lists now and one is particularly worth being on!

When you search for a specific local business, you may no longer see the knowledge graph appear in the right-hand sidebar. Google appears to be testing its position on the SERPs. The knowledge panel has moved to the left and fully above the fold. It's gone from shy prince in the margins to ...

I always take anything "ranking factors" with a grain of salt but this might be worth your time.

We looked at 100+ factors across 30,000 businesses to try to figure out how local businesses can rank better in Google.

If you were the owner, behind that counter and you were feeling the pain of this complaint, what would you have done to attempt to resolve this? How would you have tried to respond to this customer?

I barely post (or even check) anything on social anymore.
Mostly client work-related.
There are better things to do.

If you were to cut back on your own social media use tomorrow, would it really have a negative impact on your life? So why let others tell you it would?

I can certainly understand that sentiment.

At the same time, because of my activities on social, my company has earned lots of new business, and continues to earn business. And I tie it back to my activities on social.

Rich Cards and Google's Structured Data Restructuring

On 17 May 2016 Google made a number of changes to their structured data site and introduced a successor to rich snippets, rich cards.

Great breakfast location in Walla Walla. The wait is worth it.

While super hard-working, M&M Junk Removal is such a personal and flexible business to work with! Martin didn't make me feel the weight of cut-and-dried service and standard cost. Instead, he went extra mile to get work done and adjusted to my specific situation. I really appreciated that! This isn't just another trash removal truck. Business is closely tied to Martin's personality. Highly recommended service! Wishing all the best to him and his business!

Wow! Great food & experience! Too bad I didn't visit here before - it's next door but I prejudged because restaurants were in and out every year at this location in my neighborhood. I guess I didn't want to attach to another fly-by-night business here. But this is not one of those. Exceptional service, clean & comfortable interior and great, authentic food. Totally worth a quick lunch break or visit with the family. I'll certainly be back!

Enjoyed a few chats here with local friends. Comfy and cool coffee house during hot summer days. Great place to get loaded with caffeine and read, work on a project, chat with a friend or have a meeting (all business meetings should be in places like these rather than boring office meeting rooms). Personnel was super sweet and responsive both times I was there. Made a great suggestion when I needed one. Their pies are great! Will certainly stop by here when I'm back in town!

Best donuts in town! I love that place! Either getting them on Sunday afternoon or sitting down in the late evening - one of few places open in Auburn after 10. Better get donuts early though - they often sell out. But, unlike Safeway, they make fresh donuts during the day, not just in the morning.

Wish I had coffee shop like this within 5 min drive from my house! My wife and I took a random drive to Burien and West Seattle and ended up here based on my friend's recommendation. Glad we did. Great barista! Trying to figure out what we wanted and seeing others order before and after us - barista knew locals and what they wanted, was super polite, asked about our day, etc. Then we just enjoyed our time there. Nice house! Relaxed atmosphere. Inside and outside seating. Great for chats, great for quietly working on a project on your laptop (free Wi-Fi), great for business chats/interviews. I'd have local business meet up here (and they offer that as an option) instead of boring office space or rental room . Great coffee! Highly recommended!
