Venue Events markup added to Knowledge Graph

It's not a rare feeling around here that something we are working on just happens to become the topic of an update a week or so later. Last week we were putting the finishing copy on a page for one of our Chicago locations that will have a unique event space as part of the building.

It will be interesting to see how well this integration gets picked-up once we have events booked at the space, and whether the user intent is to learn about the venue or the individual events.

Best thing I read today: http://mackwebsolutions.com/2014/09/something-more-to-achieve/

A lot of what Mack says in general is uplifting/inspiring, but when she talks about team building, I'm totally invested. Check this out if you at all responsible for helping your crew flourish and level up. 
We've been working our way onto the scene over the past few years. It took a little while for the pieces to fall into place, but now is our time to move.

Comments-per-Post; the metric to save us all

Very thorough and well-argued post by +Dan Shure over on the Moz blog. Took my until this morning to finish it, but well worth the read if you or your team are involved in blogging for your company. 

Some really interesting stuff going on in the comments, too. 
 
My newest post is on +Moz today: The Broken Art Of Company Blogging (and the one metric that could save us)

SEO Echo Chamber? More like Pre-Cogs

Around the office we often talk about how the Whiteboard Friday episode or other +Moz posts nail the topics we've been working on that week or month.  You might say that's less coincidence and more likely that we've been listening to an overlapping set of influencers that reasonably led us all to the same point on different timelines (queue TARDIS sounds).

Today I checked my feed-reader and saw something a little eerie. Just yesterday we had a meeting about setting up an improved scheme for competitor tracking and analysis. Since our company participated in so many verticals, we knew we'd need a framework, not something that was done ad-hoc when we were gearing up to work on a particular product line. Low and behold, the fantastic gift that +Aleyda Solis unknowing gave to us.

Putting aside the likelihood that she's a mental ninja and broke into my mind, the diagram below is exactly what we needed to move into production on our competitor analysis and tracking. 

If any of my friends overseas run into Aleyda, give her a high-five and a drink for me.

#ILoveTabletop - Shut Up & Take My Money

Not only are +Felicia Day & +Wil Wheaton awesome, entertaining folks, but TableTop has helped me discover games I never would have encountered before, and directly contributed to many fun evenings with my friends over the last couple of years. The least I could do is contribute towards getting another season. 

(Seriously, I'd never played Catan, Tsuro, Small World, Ticket to Ride or Munchkin before watching Tabletop.)

The best gaming article I've read in weeks doesn't come from gaming media. +Rand Fishkin's review of the ideas in Ian Danskin's "This is Phil Fish" video essay. Ian makes several salient points about how we treat internet fame and our expectations of how "famous" people interact with anyone at anytime, and Rand does a fine job bringing these points to an expanded audience.

Actually, if I'd heeded what either of them said, I wouldn't be typing this, I would have come up with a single image to convey all this. Maybe something like a jumping high-five, Finn & Jake style.

Yesterday, a Mozzer shared this video with the company over an allstaff thread. I started watching, as I usually do, thinking that 1-2 minutes into the video I’d give up and get back to my email. Wrong. For 19 minutes and 5 seconds, I was captivated. The video isn’t lovely or beautifully done, but it …

How Social affects SEO but not algorithmically

I'd say "great post by +AJ Kohn", but if you subscribe to Blind Five Year Old, you've already come to expect the type of article that cuts through the confusion and gives you the what/where/why about online marketing. 

I had originally thought I'd write more about this on my own blog, but after sharing the post and discussing it with my team, I don't have much more of value to add on the topic at this time. Thus, I figured the least I could do is share it here, and hopefully 1 or 2 creators follow me and get inspired. 

At the bare minimum, anyone who's stuck in the desert like me should appreciate a graph about ice cream.

Ok, ...not really. 

Founded in 2008, Ryan's blog RelevantWit.com, occasionally covers topics from culture to urbanism, and is mostly a document on the rambling life of a moderately-young man in a New American city.

As co-host of the LeetSauced gaming podcast since 2010, Ryan (under his gaming handle "Viktory") has been delighting fans with irreverent discussions about min-maxing, theorhetical economics, and craft beers. 

His latest project, Rogue Pepper, finally launched in 2014 after years of brainstorming, and features what we call our "love letter to eating well". His current quest includes covering the Best Burgers in Phoenix, while still supporting co-founder Stephanie Gomez's healthy lifestyle.

The staff at Royal Coffee is top-notch, and the lattes are better than you can find elsewhere around campus. Plus, tons of plugs along the extended bar inside, so Royal has been a great place to go before or after class, and it's super-accessible with the Light Rail stop just across the street.

Among the best carne asada tacos you will ever find; although I wish they would bring back the Double-Check Ranch beef they used to use. The Naco is an amazing sandwich; perfectly grilled rib-eye, farm-fresh free-range egg yolk oozing through the steak, and avacado to supply that creaminess that compliments the grilled meat. I once gave up beef for Lent and not being able to eat a taco or sandwich from Gallo Blanco was probably the hardest part of that 40-day commitment. Service can be lack-luster, we've had problem with large parties and lunch groups, seems like they have a lot of staff that is always rather busy somewhere else.

The food at Crepe Bar is always beyond reproach. The chef is a mad genius, and if you're even slightly adventurous, you are certain to be rewarded with a terrific approach to great, fresh ingredients prepared in a clever and insightful manner. We have brought friends & family here, and Crêpe Bar is now one of the go-to places I take visitors from out of town. 5 of 5, would buy again.

As a resident of the apartment complex that Fair Trade is attached to, I really wanted to enjoy this place, and before several other coffee shops were opened nearby, I made due with what Fair Trade offered. I agree with the "fair trade" ethic they espouse on paper, but once you're in the cafe, it feels like it's a very closed off place for anyone who's not in the activist community. For a coffee shop, they have really good sandwiches. Unfortunately, the staff gives you the impression that they are very put-off anytime they have to make food or pour drinks. Their pastries look homemade but taste like they were made off-site a while ago and their coffee is consistently weak and flavorless. Being the nearest coffee-shop to the Central & Roosevelt Light Rail, I would occasionally get a drink while waiting for the next train to come, but between poor, slow service and an inferior quality of product, I much rather walk the extra blocks to Lola on 3rd & Roosevelt or wait until I get to work and use the Keurig.

As artisan sandwiches in Phoenix go, Pane Bianco is not to be beat. Starting with bread that is baked fresh, on premises, daily, you get the fresh-from-the-oven texture that is only provided by a wood-fire oven. Stop in, see what's on the menu that day and enjoy a healthy share of variety in your life as you try the market sandwich with excellently sourced ingredients you won't find in any other sandwich shop. I haven't dined-in since they took over the space formerly occupied by Lux, and the patio is uniquely derelict in it's appearance, but that's part of the sparse charm of the place. Stop in, get a phenomenal sandwich, and be happy you decided to treat yourself instead of eating processed meats & cheese at some chain shop. (Not sure why other review said this was "near the Heard Museum", as the Museum is 2 full miles south of here, and there are lots of other reasons you might be in Midtown Phoenix and hungry for a sandwich.)
