Love this:  "...just 67 seconds after he stopped!"

Footage of an F1 pit stop in the 1950s gets compared to the modern day equivalent to show the large difference in speed and technical expertise. Although the modern F1 pit stop has more automobile and mechanical changes, it does not seem to slow them down.

Cool tool for keyword research:

Similar to Ubersuggest (http://ubersuggest.org/), but it looks like this has more options.

Today, I'm super-excited to introduce our latest product from Moz, MozWorthy! It's a tool that takes your regular (perhaps even boring) video, adds some

Worth reading...there's a bunch of good, useful stuff in here that I didn't know.
While not everyone has an audience active on Google+, the number of people who interact socially with any Google products on a monthly basis now reportedly ​exceeds 500 million.

Nice batch of info but I do dislike reading stuff like this -  "This could be an oversight, or Google could remove these followed links soon." - aww....

The graph alone is worth a million bucks.
Expectations of returns can be high for SEO work, despite the fact that it can take several months to really get best practices ingrained. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand shows us four ways to mitigate the gap between expectations and effort.

Dr. Geelan's been great with both me and my 7 year old son. I like that they've got all the modern technology both for great tracking of dental changes, and to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

Awesome, spectacular day of fishing, guys! We came back with yellow fin tuna, skipjack, big eye, and had a great time. We saw a lot of other boats out there, but only saw 1 other person catch anything. Clearly Lance and his crew know where the fish are, and what they're hungry for. You guys took great care of us, and my son got to reel in his first tuna! Dinner tonight is going to be great :-)

Wow, these folks work hard....and my house really looks fantastic now. Way more attention to detail than the last service I used. They scrubbed the baseboards and they look like they've been freshly painted now! I'm extremely impressed.

John did an awesome job on my carpets--and I love the Green Choice option! Everything came perfectly clean AND no chemical smell afterwards. And he arrived exactly on time and was finished when he said he would be. Easy to work with!

Loved it! A little gem in NE Portland. Wonderful lomi lomi, kalua pork, mac salad, and my son loved his first ever taste of POG :-). Very big portions, too. Visited the restaurant last night, and will be having leftovers for lunch today. Great friendly service too.

Jerry Davis has been fantastic to work with. My parents had bought a car from them, and unfortunately they passed away recently. Jerry did all the legwork to get the car towed to their dealership, new keys made, and made a more than fair offer to buy back the car from us. It's one thing to go out of your way to impress a customer who's about to buy a car--these guys went out of their way for us just because it was the right thing to do. A+!

Steve was terrific, called ahead to confirm the time was still good, and arrived exactly on time. And with all the disclaimers and warnings the insurance company and Steve gave me about not being able to make the stone chip go away completely, I have to say, I have to look really hard to find it. He did a super job, I couldn't be happier!
