All I can say is I dislike this test. Too blended with meta descriptions. #seo

Discovering Which Sites Your Target Audience Visits

Once you know the other sites your target audience visits, you can do all sorts of amazing things to reach visitors there. Good at link building on a certain type of site? Find more like it! Good at guest contributions? Find more of those! Earning good ROI on ads? Buy them on similar sites!

My latest WB Friday shows how, alongside all the tools to do it: http://bit.ly/WhatElseTheyVisit
Identifying your target market is only one-fifth of the battle. If you want to win the proverbial war, you have to know your audience inside and out. Discovering the sites they visit and using that knowledge to your advantage is key, but the best practices to do so can feel unclear. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand outlines a five-step process to more effectively reach and market to your target community.

Reviews not a ranking factor

Have seen a fair bit of discussion about this here in the UK today. Much of it is pointless ... whether reviews are a ranking factor or not, they're always going to be important for other reasons.

For the average SMB / SME owner though the title of this article surely creates confusion as I'm not sure they'd distinguish between web search, i.e. organic, and local.

Any thoughts from the Community here?
In the hangout from last week on Google+ at the 17:27 minute mark Google's John Mueller said he doesn't think reviews left on your local business has a direct impact on your web search organic ranking
