Uh, is it just me, or did Google+ remove the option to see how many people LIKE your business page and now only show the number of people who have you in circles?? Is this some kind of attempt at an  April Fools prank?

You are right... some responsive site facing this kind of problem.
You should try #googlenewsstand for your blog in which there is facilities to integrate adsense as well as all your social feeds under one roof for yout followers.

Ha! No. I like Matt as a person. If I shot in that regard, it would be at a Google logo. :P

If you missed SMX, you'll find a lot of what Matt said during the "Meet the Search Engines" session here with a roundup of my live tweets from the session, as well as a deep dive / thoughts from me on each point. :) #SMX #Google #SEO

When I'm on mobile and I click a link from G+ if the site has Adsense ads the ads don't appear. There's just a space where the Adsense should be. Same sites show Adsense fine when links are clicked from all the other social networks on mobile. Is G+ stripping Adsense ads on mobile click thrus? I'm seeing this across multiple sites. Anyone know anything / why this is occurring? +Mark Traphagen +martin shervington +Ronnie Bincer

+Rae Hoffman very interesting! I can pass that on to AdSense and Google+ support.

Damn Strait... pun totally intended. There's a reason I have a sign in my home that says "Unless you're God or George Strait, take your boots off at the door".

Hitting the Johns has always been more effective than hitting the uh - ah fuck it - hookers. :)
 
Did +Matt Cutts of Google just confirm they took action on +Ann Smarty MyBlogGuest.com network?  He did mostly confirm that those publishers who participated in the guest blog network that Google hit would likely also be hit negatively by this.

Paul Macnamara (pmac) has known me for over a decade. In this interview he dives into how I began making money in the industry, my former history as a blackhat and at the end, he FINALLY publicly admits something he's been denying for about 8 years that I've known all along...

Introduction
Rae Hoffman is the Co-Founder and CEO of PushFire.

Known in the online marketing community as Sugarrae, Rae is a well known affiliate marketing veteran and SEO consultant - in addition to being an columnist, speaker, successful entrepreneur and self proclaimed "White Collar Redneck".

When she's not busy watching her beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers lose (usually horribly), you can find her shuffling her children to various practices or fundraising for the Houston American Heart Association.

Rae loves her truck, country music and has an irrational yet severe fear of birds. She also has little to no tolerance for laziness, people who wear socks with sandals and the every child gets a trophy mentality.

We were renting a condo in Kemah for the weekend. We went to the IHOP because it was close. We didn't expect much with it two blocks from a tourist locale, but we were wrong. I was desperately in need of coffee and the waitress who had just finished cashing out a customer could have easily told me someone would be right with me. But she didn't. She happily brought us two coffees while we perused the menu to make a to go order. Then the manager took our to go order. He was in very good spirits, despite it being seven AM and verified he got our order right before placing it. Ten minutes later, our food was ready to go, complete with "these are all for kids" syrup quantities and cutlery. They refilled our to go coffees and wished us a great day. All of the food was well done. The pancakes are a bit smaller than what I've typically seen at IHOP, but the quality and service was much better than what I've typically seen at IHOP as well. We were very pleasantly surprised by this IHOP. So much so that we just got done eating ten minutes ago and I felt compelled to leave this review due to the fantastic and unexpected awesomeness of the restaurant.

If I could give this zero stars, I would. Granted, we were traveling in TO and ordered Chinese food at 2 am, but what we got was horrible. Delivery was in a timely manner and the delivery guy was nice. However, the food was simply awful. Wonton soup with no fried noodles. The "sweet and sour" chicken had no breading, the BBQ ribs had *no* sauce and zero flavor. The vegetable beef was like a frozen TV dinner. It was 3 am by the time it was delivered and even four starving people barely put a dent in 60 dollars worth of food. I'd seriously recommend something - anything - else.

I was completely terrified to make a mistake when I was hiring a pool contractor after reading tons of horror stories on the net, but eventually found a forum where Dave of Mystic Blue was highly recommended as a pool builder in Katy, TX. While he may not have been the "cheapest option", what he delivered was beyond our expectations. He designed our entire yard, which consisted of a pool, hot tub, fire pit, shade arbor and outdoor kitchen and was extremely hands on during the entire building process. And it was much quicker than we ever thought possible. I honestly cannot say enough good things about the experience we had with Dave. He went above and beyond and I'd gladly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a pool contractor in the Houston area.

After having the same hairdresser for seven years in Canada where I used to live, I was almost terrified to try someone new after moving to Katy. Unable to avoid finding someone new, I did some research, heard good things about Highland Salon and in particular, Mindy. The Salon and Mindy did not disappoint. Friendly staff and great facilities. Mindy did a fabulous job on my color and cut. I'm estatic to have found such a great stylist here in Katy. I got home and two of my "transplant" (new to Katy) friends saw it and immediately asked for her info. Mindy is a ten star hairstylist.

BE VERY AWARE IF YOU HAVE SHELLFISH ALLERGIES. I ordered plain old Wonton soup - had two sips of broth before my husband discovered shrimp in his - and sure enough there was Shrimp in mine. Since I'm allergic to Shellfish, I obviously found this very disturbing and am not looking forward to being covered with hives. I wouldn't touch this place with a ten foot pole ever again.
