New post is up. If you're considering integrating Facebook Instant Articles when it is opened up to all publishers you are going to want to be aware of this: http://www.mikewilton.com/how-facebooks-instant-articles-could-impact-your-contents-reach/
While Instant Articles may provide a faster more immersive experience for your Facebook audience, it might come at the cost of overall reach and visibility.

It's weird. I still use G+ to keep up on things and find myself hitting the +1 from time to time, but I never post here. Twitter and Facebook really are my main channels for posting these days. That said, how the heck is everyone?

Interesting read and perspective from a blind person on why more should be done to make websites more readable for the visually impaired.
Over eight million Americans have trouble with their vision. Here's how newsrooms can (and should) design with them in mind.

If they are, they're being smart. This is no different than what Google does with people's content showing up directly in the search results. This provides their audience the content they want and keeps them within their site and ecosystem by not requiring a clickthrough.

It sucks for the content creator, but at the same time the content creator doesn't want to NOT be on the platform.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat may hog the social media spotlight, but quietly Pinterest has become a potent social media marketing channel and, for some brands, one of the most productive.

I've been harsh on all the RankBrain posts SEO's have posted lately, but if you're going to read one article that has RankBrain in the title today, make it this one.

If you've got some time, check this out. Really fascinating video from Norton on "bulletproof hosting" around the world and the kinds of things it might be housing http://www.fastcocreate.com/3057885/norton-explores-the-webs-dark-side-in-compelling-short-doc 
The anti-virus brand takes an intriguing look at a hidden world that includes a nuclear bunker, a sea fortress, and more.

I've talked a bit in the past, both online and offline, about how Google might be using data from its Google Opinion Rewards app to fuel local reviews, but now I can confirm that Google is definitely prompting users on occasion to review businesses they've been to through the app and then using those review in the SERPs http://www.mikewilton.com/is-google-opinion-rewards-fueling-local-reviews/
My findings on how Google is leveraging their My Opinion Rewards app to fuel local reviews and star ratings.

I attended the SEJ Summit at this hotel and the facility was beautiful and the staff I interacted with were extremely friendly. The event was held in the Arcadia Ballroom and featured adequate seating in a very comfortable, well lit environment. The lunch as well as the hors d'oevres served during the post event happy hour were fresh and tasty and the hotel offers amazing views of the beach and nearby Santa Monica Pier. The hotel is also very engaged via social media and interacted with and responded to photos and tweets I posted during the event with their location tagged, which was a pleasant surprise. Definitely a hotel I would consider attending future events at or staying.

We stayed here for one of the Knott's Scary Farm packages and feel this was a stellar deal. The rooms are spacious and the staff is friendly. The dinner and breakfast buffets that were included in the package featured a variety of choices and were very tasty. The only complaint about the buffets were the lack of attention from waiting staff. The hotel is very close to the park and allows you easy access to and from the park. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The only other complaint would be the tickets and vouchers for use during your stay are all printed on receipt paper, which is not very durable.

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.

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.

We purchased two cars her previously when it was Quality Toyota and returned to buy our latest car knowing that many of the same folks we've worked with in the past were still here. We were not disappointing! Everyone we dealt with from the salesman on the lot to the finance people were outstanding. They worked with us to get a price and a payment we were happy with and in the end we left with a car we wanted and a payment we could live with. We'll continue to buy from this dealer and bring our cars here for service and would highly recommend it to anyone else in the area looking to buy a Toyota.

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.
