Anyone know how to influence the phone number to show in the onebox? e.g. [macys phone] [pepboys phone].

Hi +Reuben Yau - if this is a company you have control over, you can try marking it up with some schema / microdata on the company website, getting it added as an entity in freebase, and making sure it is all correct within Google+. I've been able to "influence" quite a few phone numbers using this method, HMU if you wanna chat more on this.

It might come down to query volume as with most things Google, but there are certainly ways to speed it up.

How is Yext for you +Reuben Yau? I've only used them once, but may hire them again for a multi-office client who needs a quick shot of citation-juice injected into the local cluster ha ha.

I'm working on a link clean up project and have manually reviewed thousands of sites and bad links. I'm looking for a tool/service that will help me identify the site owners and manage the outreach and tracking of the link removals. Any suggestions? Feel free to msg/email me, thanks!

Today just started seeing a DMOZ description appear as the snippet in Google serps for a site, even though it uses noodp, anyone else seeing this?

Recently one of our sites was redesigned, noodp markup was dropped and Google picked up the antiquated description from Dmoz. No idea why, seems silly to do so.

My wife's grandfather, a WWII vet, got to go on an Honor Flight earlier this year. All I have to say is, what an amazing organization and bunch of people. The whole experience was amazing and "one of the best days of his life," and the treatment from all persons involved was nothing short of phenomenal! Such a great organization... #thanks #veterans

Work hard, play hard.
Introduction
I've worked in the SEO industry since 2000 when I came to the U.S. to build a travel startup and had to figure out how to get traffic. After it's acquisition I worked for several organizations optimizing sites in many different verticals including travel, finance, manufacturing, retail, B2B, law and real estate.

Most recently I was at Manta.com for 6 years and in that time grew traffic from 4MM to 30+MM monthly uniques and over 70MM page views per month. That's more traffic than CNN, NY Times and Apple Inc.

I've developed training programs, materials, been featured in tweetchats and webinars and authored an ebook on SEO.

Now working for Reprise Media in Columbus OH, leading a talented SEO team, doing great things for a Fortune 100 company.

The instructors are friendly and well trained. You get solid instruction about real world confrontations to deal with unarmed or weapon attacks and multiple attackers. Krav is not for everyone, if you're the type that wants to turn up in spandex for some cardio, this is not for you. If you're not into the martial arts aspect, they run Crossfit classes which really get you in shape. Pricing is reasonable and I enjoy the flexibility in being able to train at this gym or at the other two locations (Hilliard and Gahanna).
