Important: This is the first time that I can remember Google pre-announcing a ranking factor update in their algorithm.  It usually comes after the fact, so seeing this come out nearly 2 months ahead of time means that it's going to be pretty major.  They even say in their announcement that it's going to be a significant impact on search results.   Take note of this, and if you don't have a good mobile site, you should really think about your online strategy, and fairly quickly. #rankingfactors #mobile #seotips2015 #googleupdates #algorithm

Lots of good stuff from the SEO manager at Disney Interactive. Didn't hurt that he brought a Star Wars clip with him to get his point across. #sejsummit #seotips #seo2015 #searchmetrics

Let's get it on! Fight of the century is going to happen this  year. Mayweather and Pacquiao scheduled to fight this May.  This super-fight shouldn't disappoint, but I do think Mayweather has the edge at this point in their careers. #mayweatherpacquiao2015 #floydmayweather #mannypacquiao  
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally meet in the ring.

Malware Attack: I've been hearing about this today and it appears to be a serious issue for Wordpress sites that are using this plugin. If you have Fancybox plugin, then you need to get on this right away. #fancybox #wordpress #malware

Gotta crawl before your walk.  If you are not familiar with Google Webmaster Tools or want to learn more about what the data means there, this is a detailed post from +Joost de Valk about how to use GWT and what the data means for your site.  If you haven't checked out GWT lately, you might be surprised.  #googlewebmastertools #gwt #crawling #indexing  
The fourth article in our series about Google Webmaster Tools deals with the Crawl section of it. Read all posts for the best use of GWT.

Thanks to my wife for getting me the new iPhone 6 for my birthday.  I'm blown away by the new camera features and stoked on what it can do.  I like the Slow-motion capture feature on videos, time-lapse photos, and of course all of the new filters and editing features.  Here's a couple of selfies that I took along with some filtered shots.  I couldn't imagine going any bigger for a phone.  I think Apple hit the head hard with this one. #sals #iphone6 #nailedit

One of my favorite movie lines of all time. Gotta thank my wife +Marcella Surra for getting me this cool shirt yesterday. I'm getting so many compliments on it. #sals #sandlot

Flashback almost 30 years.  Yep, that's me in the thumbnail in front of the crowd wearing the white shirt. This video is from my HS lunch back in 1988 and at this spot in the segment features a quick shot of me when I was just 14-15 years-old.  That's me drinking the soda at 10:45.  My bro +Vince Surra and some friends are also featured in this segment. #fbf #fbfriday #flashbackfriday #flashback

There's no secret-sauce or magic fairy dust that SEOs can sprinkle on a site to get them ranked in the top spots on Google.  Anyone who says they can guarantee #1 rankings for a long period of time are just pulling the wool over people.  It takes planning, time, hard work, and commitment to get those results.  Don't cut corners and create a real strategy that can stand the test of time. Be honest to yourself about the intent. #seotips2015 #seoservices #secretsauce #rankingfactors

Sometimes I like to take a step back and think about what technical SEO is about. What are the core tasks? Taking page content and ensuring it is "marked-up". In a way which keeps both the browsers...

Fantasy Football Expert / Fantasy Sports Writer & Editor / Sr SEO Specialist / Blogger / Gamer / Husband / Father
Introduction
Some might call me a web dude because I've been on the Internet since the late 80's.  The first time I got on the net we used an actual hard-line telephone that we would stick the large phone receiver into a modem box just like in 80's movie War Games. There were no browsers or interface like today and we would access sites by typing in simple DOS commands. We mostly just played games, but thankfully things have come a long way. :)

I started to build my first website in 1995 when there were no programs to build websites, only blank pages that needed code.  I still love the code side of the web and always 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 over 15 years and 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'm busy working with a great Fortune 500 company as a Sr SEO Specialist in their major automotive 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 biggest 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 an editor for a fantasy football site where I publish regular articles on fantasy football. 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'm also provide travel consulting and share my reviews of the best local spots in Socal and OC at my Orange County travel news and reviews website.
 
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 minivan, and rocking through life! What more can I say, but that I'm the defending fantasy football champion for a couple of 12 team leagues.
