Good stuff here from +Jennifer Slegg surprised more people aren't talking about it.
 
It's that time... a brand new - and completely rewritten - version of the Quality Rating Guidelines for the Google raters, and there is a ton of insight and lots of hints about the kinds of things SEOs should pay attention to and change in the (probably near) future.  http://www.thesempost.com/google-rewrites-quality-rating-guide-seos-need-know/
Google has completely rewritten the Quality Ratings Guideline, the resource that their team of quality raters uses to rate websites for Google. This one is a brand new version, rewritten from the ground up, so it isn’t just a refresh of the old one (and most doesn’t even resemble any of the old Guidelines that …

 +Mike Wilton  Agreed! I talked about it and thought more would be buzzing too. I always pay attention to these when they are leaked. Asked Jen about any Local insights and she said she'd do a post if there was interest.

Usually posts like this I come across are awful, but these are actually really solid recipes for marketers.

Yeah, so Google Glass is great for spying on people and shooting people. Just what humanity needed right now.

I love seeing stuff like this and I wish more companies did it.  The human element is what connects me to brands as a consumer.
Companies strive to create a human social media presence. Here are five examples of companies doing it well.

+Mike Blumenthal brought this up during his My Business presentation at SMX Advanced last week and it was probably one of the one things that resonated most with me during his presentation.  Sadly, I didn't see much talk about it following the conference, so it's good to see that he has put together a full post about it here.

Really interesting find here from +Andrew Shotland.  Obviously with it being a test we don't know what to expect in the long run, but I wanted to share some thoughts of my own regarding this that wasn't mentioned in the post.

I have seen Foursquare doing more and more neighborhood classifications when you check in over the last year or so, and I almost wonder if local SEO's and businesses could leverage this data if/when Google decides to fully integrate something like this.

For instances, businesses in and around Disneyland in Anaheim, CA are classified by Foursquare as being part of the "Anaheim Resort" and not just Anaheim.

When I check in at businesses near my home in Corona, CA they are often classified as being in "South Corona" and not just Corona, CA.

I have also seen numerous prompts over the last year or so where Foursquare asks users "Would you ever consider this business as being in [neighborhood name]?" Which leads me to believe that Foursquare is doing some pretty in depth work to try and understand certain neighborhoods and what businesses people classify as being in said neighborhood.

If Google is moving in a similar direction, I would strongly suggest people start looking at some of this Foursquare data, as I predict it may wind up being very similar. 
While doing some research in Costa Mesa, CA last week, I hit a Google test bucket that specified the East Side Costa Mesa neighborhood as my location in Search Tools: Google has long understood super well-known dense neighborhoods like SoHo, NY. But there’s a good reason why neighborhoods, particularly smaller city neighborhoods, have not been […]

To all my friends who work at an agency, or run an agency, how many clients on average do your SEO's oversee?

Possibly the funniest makeup ad ever? Chock full of innuendos.  VERY amusing.

Really great post with some fun tools I was unaware of.  As an avid Chrome user both at work, home and on the go, I LOVED this.

So cool. I hope they get the funding.  I love that even after going off the air, LeVar Burton has pushed the Reading Rainbow brand and tried to help it evolve and carry on for further generations.
If there were ever a Kickstarter project that we can all get behind, it's this new initiative by LeVar Burton to build his wonderful Reading Rainbow show into a learning platform that will be provided for FREE to anyone who wants to use it in an educational setting - especially school districts and homeschoolers.

My wife and I stayed at aloft for a one night getaway from the kids and we really liked it. The hotel itself has a very modern feel and features a bar, pool table, and fireplace as soon as you walk in. The only downside to this is that as a first time visitor we weren't sure if we were in the right place since the front desk was off to the side and not very noticeable when you first walk in. The room we stayed in had a nice layout where essentially it is split in half with the bathroom portion on one side of the wall and the "bedroom" portion on the other side. This makes it great if you are staying with someone and don't want to be disturbed if you are sleeping while they shower, go to the bathroom, etc. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was that for a non-smoking hotel, we smelled cigarette smoke every couple of hours throughout the night. At first we thought maybe it was because we were above the pool/patio area, but since we were on the fifth floor its highly unlikely that this is where the smell came from. Smoke problem aside, we had a nice stay at this hotel and would definitely visit this location again. One cool thing to note, if you like the artwork in the lobby, you can actually purchase it and have it shipped to you.

In short; great atmosphere, great food, and great service. My wife and I ate here for the first time last night on a date and I must say that I was extremely impressed. The restaurant itself has inviting, yet rustic decor and an overall fun atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and very helpful when it came to answering questions about menu items. The restaurant was very busy during our visit, but our waitress was still very attentive. She returned to our table after it had been a bit since we placed our order to assure us that the food would be out shortly. We assured her we weren't worried about it and that we understood because of how busy the restaurant was. When our food finally came it was delivered by a manager and he also apologized for the wait. The food itself was delicious, the only real complaint we had was that they use a fairly soft tofu in their wok dishes, which typically feature a more firm tofu, but otherwise the food was really good.

Brian does amazing work, especially when it comes to kids portraits. My wife and I were fortunate enough to have Brian do portraits of our twins and they turned out amazing. Brian is a natural with kids and both of our kids took to him quickly which made getting fun and colorful shots a lot easier. Brian also has a knack for lighting and location, so shots taken in our back and front yard looked as though they were taken in a whole other environment. If you are looking for a high quality photographer who does incredible work in the Inland Empire, look no further than Brian LaBrada.

Zak is dedicated to helping individuals when it comes to real estate. He mentioned on his Facebook Page once that a rep in one of the biggest banks in the U.S. commented on how he was one of the few Realtors out of the thousands he deals with that actually want to help and educate homeowners and I believe it. His commitment to helping others, even when they are in dire situations sets him apart from most of the agents I have ever worked with.

I have been fortunate enough to have Crystal perform massages on me on a number of occasions and each time she quickly identifies the source of the pain and goes to work. I often suffered from neck and shoulder pain and Crystal was able to relieve the pain and tension every time.
