all successful digital marketing efforts are based on cat pictures.
Big +1 to for this (and a bonus +1 for the 418 - I was totally prepared to have to call Rishi out for its omission, but nope - he nailed it). H/t to for the tweeted link.

Thanks for destroying my mind.
Would you use this?
What they did doesn't quite level the data playing field between organic and paid. It kind of does nothing.

Is this new or have I been snoozing?
"This" being an icon that appears next to the domain display in the snippet of a link shared in Google plus. Hovering over the icon pops up the associated Google+ Page of the domain, affording you the opportunity of adding the page directly from the popup.
This doesn't happen for every snippet. From my (very brief) testing the Page seems to needs to fulfill these three conditions in order for the "add-to-circles" widget to appear:
1. Have a vanity Google+ URL
2. The site's domain must be a "linked website" on the Google+ page (small check mark next to the domain name on the Google+ Page)
3. The site's Google+ Page name must be verified (large check mark next to the domain name on the Google+ Page)
No. 3 is interesting because it remains elusive. Site linking (no. 2) is straightforward and well-documented (http://bit.ly/1iycg24), but the Google form that previously allowed to apply for a verified name Google+ has disappeared.
Both the YouTube page on verified names (http://bit.ly/1mYbukI) and the page on Google+ Direct Connect (http://bit.ly/1juJq4N) suggest that name verification is algorithmic, and that properly linking your domain to your Google+ is a necessary - but not sufficient - condition for name verification.
