Well this is interesting.  I've been playing around with Bing's new Fantasy Football prediction engine.  You can see NFL football predictions for any team, position, or player for each week of the season.  #fantasyfootball   #fantasypredications   #nfl   #bing   #fantasysports  
Summer is approaching the finish line, Labor Day weekend draws near, and post-season baseball is around the corner. All of these signs point to one thing: Football is back. Fortunately for you, Bing has all your professional football needs covered this season. Whether you want to know the ...

There's a lot of good action items to take away from this article.   If you produce content, you should read this for sure. #directanswers   #seotips   #googlesearch   #serps  
 
My latest column on +Search Engine Land -> Swapped Out: Losing A Google Featured Snippet [Case Study] #seo

In a 2 week period after losing the featured snippet, my client lost 39K+ visits to the page. So I dug in to learn why that happened. The competitor that stole the spotlight came out of nowhere... so I analyzed page structure, content quality, inbound links, social metrics, and more.

You should check it out. It just might help you save your own featured snippets. :)
When a client loses its featured snippet, columnist Glenn Gabe does some competitive analysis to try to determine why. His findings may shed light on what it takes to get a featured snippet in Google search results.

Yeah I'm hoping this year won't be too much of a change, but I suspect the next couple after this will be quite different.

This story made my day. #starwars   #weirdal   #sagabegines   #stromtroopers   #501st  
 
Layla is an 8-year-old girl who was bullied for liking “Star Wars.” When an organized fan group known as the 501st Legion heard her story, its members knew they had to help. The organization sent her a Stormtrooper suit that had been passed down by two girls who had also been ridiculed for liking “Star Wars.
When the 501st Legion presented Layla with the suit, it just so happened that costumed members were participating in a “Weird Al” Yankovic concert, so they invited Layla to meet the singer.

7 years ago I was blessed with my first son.  I couldn't be prouder.  We celebrated at Scooter's Jungle last week, which was a great indoor fun place for the kids and adults. #sals   #tbt   #throwbackthursdays

I was going to share this today but seeing +Casey Musarra  already posting it I'll just reshare for the football community. This is pretty good list or wide receivers for 2015 fantasy football draft.  #fantasyfootball   #widereceivers   #wrs   #fantasydraft  
 
Updated following Kelvin Benjamin's season-ending injury.
Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina Panthers wide receiver, falls out of the top 20 fantasy football wide receivers heading into the 2015 NFL season following a torn ACL.

Story
Tagline
I'm a passionate Sr. SEO Specialist, Webmaster, Fantasy Football Expert, and Fantasy Sports Writer that loves Star Wars, video games, food, and POP culture.
Introduction
Some call me the web dude because I've been on the Internet since the late 1980's.  The first time I got on the net was using a hard-line telephone that would use a large phone receiver that plugged into a modem box just like in 80's movie War Games. There were no browsers or interface and we would access sites by typing in simple DOS commands.

I started building my first website in 1995.  There were no programs to build websites.  There were only blank pages that needed code.  I still love the code side of the web and  love checking out source code for cool websites, new UI features that wow users, and other web interests that grab me. Since I've been working on web development, Internet strategies, and online marketing for 20 years, I've seen the fads come and go, the giants that looked mighty get knocked off, and every year or so another big player come along.  I'm pretty hard to impress on the web, but happy to be allow myself the opportunity.
 
Currently, I work with a great Fortune 500 company as a Sr SEO Specialist in their men's lifestyle division.  The collection of sites generate millions of visitors and are some of the most recognizable brands names in market. I also design and build websites privately for clients, blog for several sites and share my expertise in Social Media Marketing, website and UI design, fantasy sports, and a few other topics.
 
One of my most passionate hobbies is playing fantasy sports and have numerous championships to my name in both fantasy football and baseball. I write and maintain my own fantasy sports blog, as well as write for several fantasy football sites. I play in a dozen or more leagues per year, as well as commish around a half of dozen of them.  Some are for money, where others are for bragging rights and research. 
 
I enjoy playing sports like basketball, riding bikes, wrestling, and playing with my kids.  When I'm not on the computer or my iPhone, I'm usually at home hanging out with the family or working on one of the many projects I'm involved with.  My door is always open and I'm happy to help and share my knowledge.  Feel free to contact me and let's connect.
Bragging rights
I've got great 3 kids, a beautiful wife, new ride, and rocking through life!
