This is how Customer Service, Social Media, and PR get all wrapped together. The customer service rep at Staples had no idea she was working with a noted digital marketing writer and speaker. She was just taking great care of a loyal customer.

In this case great customer care became the inspiration for a blog post that is NOW getting shared by several other digital marketers all over social media.

Wouldn't you rather have your customers sharing stories like this?

Getting educated about the algo update
 
Is anyone expecting today's this week's Google algo update to impact, albeit indirectly, on the local 3-pack search results on mobile devices?

I'm thinking that whilst local search results may be a different algorithm, surely mobile-friendly websites will at some point be a consideration for mobile local search.
