This is an excellent review of the impact of Google's Pigeon update.  Comments of Mike Blumenthal about Google's long-term direction were especially noteworthy! #localseo

Great ideas!
 
GEO Citations: Maps Listings + Map Citations + Backlinks (Some are do follow)  OK so to kick off 2015 I wanted think outside the box a little and try to come up with something a little more unique than the typical things the average consultant or SMB will do.

I often say, "Find out what Google likes and give it to her!" Well Google local is based on maps, so I assume Google likes maps. Google also likes it when you use her tools!

This lead me on a little treasure hunt to find sites that use the Google Maps or Places API and feature business listings.

This is the direction of Google and therefore the direction of the Web.

Attorney Jamie Clausen prepared my mother's will, advance medical directive, financial power of attorney, and health care power of attorney. All of the documents she produced were well-drafted, and Jamie was very patient and understanding in her effort to determine my mother's estate planning wishes. I attended a meeting with Jamie at the request of my mother because I'm also an attorney, and I came away very impressed with Jamie's knowledge of the law and the local probate system. Her fees were also very reasonable. Jamie also represented my mother's estate when my mother passed away. Again, she did a great job and my family appreciates her caring assistance.

I crunched the fender flare of my Dodge dually backing through a gate and after pricing the repair in El Campo and Wharton, I decided to get the truck repaired at Stephen's Auto Body. Stephen's offered to obtain the fender and paint it before bringing my truck in to minimize the time the truck was off the road -- which I appreciated! They did a great job in painting the fender and I had my truck back in a day. The only problem was that the fender was a little misaligned and there was a quarter inch gap between the top of the fender and the side of the bed. I noticed the gap as I was using the rear view mirrors on the drive home. I took the truck back the next morning and right away Stephen's repositioned the fender to match the fit on the other side. That's why I gave them four stars instead of five. They acted quickly to fix the issue and apologized for the inconvenience associated with bringing the truck back in, and I'd take the truck back again for another repair. I'm also recommending Stephen's to my sister-in-law for a spray-in bedliner.

My wife was driving to Austin for a conference several weeks ago and started having engine problems with our Honda CR-V while passing through Bastrop. She Googled "Honda dealer" and found Howdy Honda. She was able to coax the car to Howdy Honda, but she arrived after the service department had closed for the evening. The "great experience" started then because the sales folks helped her fill out the paperwork to get the car serviced and one of the salesman, Angel, even gave my wife a ride to her hotel. The "great experience" continued the next day as our Service Advisor, Effrim, kept us informed about troubleshooting the problem. Given this particular engine code, Howdy Honda could have run up the repair bill by replacing some non-defective parts. Instead, the parts were tested by the tech and not replaced because they were not defective. Turns out the last oil change was short a couple of quarts and that was enough to cause the engine issue. Oil and filter were changed and the car has run flawlessly since. Even though we live more than 100 miles from Austin, we'll be back when it's time to trade in the CR-V. Howdy Honda is an honest and highly professional dealership!

John Loehr has served as the registered agent for my company for the last two years, handling my company's registration with the Virginia State Corporation Commission. He has handled those duties with great competence and with an eye to minimizing my expenses. He has my very strongest recommendation!

My wife and I stopped by for breakfast this morning and loved it! She had a bacon, egg and cheese taco and I had the jalapeno sausage, egg and cheese version, both with flour tortillas. The sauce selection was also fantastic. We were advised to be cautious with the habanero version, but by mixing the habanero with a milder sauce, I enjoyed some substantial heat without discomfort. We'll be back for lunch and dinner sometime soon. Outstanding, fresh tacos with friendly, fast service. Can't be beat!

My wife and I have lunch here whenever we're in Matagorda. I love the shrimp Po' Boy because of the fresh great-tasting shrimp loaded on this sandwich. We usually start by sharing an order of stuffed jalapenos -- sometimes stuffed with crab and other times with shrimp and cream cheese. My sister-in-law tried the grilled shrimp last weekend, and she enjoyed it very much. The restaurant is on the Matagorda Yacht Basin and we enjoy watching the boats on the Intracoastal Waterway and in the yacht harbor while we're eating. It's not on the beach, but it's certainly waterfront. Service has always been great and prices are very reasonable for what you get. Highly recommended.
