Uhhh... I definitely wouldn't recommend "learning" on a site that pays your mortgage. I'm a big fan of side sites to learn with. But, I'd find it a little reckless to imply one should do this with a site that pays the bills. #SEO
Most SEOs love to test and try new things, many even have web sites they devote to experimenting with in a safe place, just in case their experiments blow up. This way, when you mess up, the site yo

I'm not seeing Panda, but I am seeing something. Again (last week too).
 
Is a Google update happening? I don't think it is Panda, but who knows.

Well, I guess she can add "internet famous" to her resume now. #coffee #starbucks #customerservice  
A Starbucks shift-supervisor (supervisor!) is out of a job this week after she blows up at a customer – over a straw. On May 12th, 2015, Ruby Chen entered the Starbucks at 86-51 Broadway, Starbuck store in Elmhurst, NY (Queens). Chen says she didn’t hear the request to give her name for her cup, and …

Used the AgentPress theme from #genesiswp to create the little cousin a website for his service business that is mobile friendly and lends itself well to a business where pictures of performed jobs sell.  Biz is now starting to blow up. :) #smallbusiness #smallbusinessmarketing

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a huge fan of trying out new recipes when we go camping. That means I’ve tried a ton of them – some losers, some winners. I’ve already listed out my favorite dutch oven recipes, tin foil recipes and breakfast recipes for our camping trips. Below I’m …

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 called Polar Express after getting a recommendation from someone in our neighborhood Facebook group. I called at 4:30 and Cory was here by 6. When the unit was still frozen, Cory came back around 8, just so that he could get it fixed the same day. He was super nice and super knowledgeable and had us up and running at an extremely reasonable price. Finding an honest service provider these days can be a challenge, but Polar Express exceeded it. We won't be using anyone else for any future AC issues.

My son has been going to SLC for about a year now and sees Kristen L. We walked in with a confirmed ASD diagnosis right after my son's second birthday. He had about 4 words in his voluntary vocabulary, didn't point, had little eye contact and didn't call most of the family by name (though he parroted everything). In addition to not having much expressive language, it was clear to us he was just as behind on receptive language (understanding what WE said) as well. His third birthday is in two weeks and he's made huge progress. He calls everyone (including Kristen) by their names when he sees them. He not only has a ton of new single words, but he's stringing together phrases of 3 and 4 words on a fairly regular basis now. His eye contact is MUCH better. He will ask for what he wants, points and picks up new words as we teach them to him on a much easier basis now. And he LOVES going. He will quickly run to the door when asked if he wants to go and play with Kristen. We knew how important it was to choose a great speech therapist and a year later, I know we chose well. I highly recommend them!

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.

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.

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.
