In case you missed it yesterday, there was a Q&A session with Google about their new mobile-friendly algorithm update that is coming out on April 21, 2015.  This spot in the video talks about some of the ranking factors that go into these signals and what webmasters should be looking at and doing to make sure they are mobile-friendly. #mobilefriendly #seotips2015 #googleupdate #algorithm

This is really helpful and good to know if you do you are thinking about doing a site migration or consolidating multiple websites into one#websiteconsolidation #sitemigration  
 
What happened when I moved 5 domains to 1 entirely new one, and why you should be careful before you attempt the same...
Should you change domain names for SEO? It's a tough question, usually asked way too casually. I merged 5 domains into 1, and this is what happened.

This is no bucket of bolts.  It may not make the Kessel Run, but still very impressive work of art of the Millennium Falcon.   #starwars #millenniumfalcon
So how did you spend the last four years of your life? No matter how you answer that question, it was a complete waste of time compared to Bernard Szukiel who spent four years creating this absolute masterpiece of a Millennium Falcon model using nothing but paper, glue, and more patience than any single human being has ever had to muster before.

Here's the slide presentation from the Lotico San Diego Semantic Web Meetup last night with +Bill Slawski talking about Semantic SEO.  He dives into the Direct Answers and Structured Data with a fine-tooth comb so it's pretty informative and helpful for anyone working in web marketing.  The secret sauce for data could be tables instead of lists or divs. #semanticseo #seotips2015  
SEO and the Semantic Web - the evolution of search results.

Fascinating presentation at the semantic SEO meet-up with +Bill Slawski talking about structured data and direct answers. It appears that tables may not have seen its day. #semantic #seo

It's beautiful and little warmer up here.  If you are ever near the OC airport or Disney area, let me know and I'd love to take you out for lunch, coffee, drinks, etc.

#throwback from the 80's.  Here's a #tbt of my brother and I getting put into the Cobra Clutch by Sgt. Slaughter of the old WWF and G.I. Joe.  He was such a nice guy and really took the time to make kids feel special.  I was always a big fan and loved it when he later became a G.I. Joe. #sals   #tbthursday #throwbackthursdays #sgtslaughter #wrestlemania

Thanks +Angel Cruz. I'm on the bottom left and we are not twins, but less than a year apart.  I was always a little bigger even though I'm the younger one, which made us look even more like twins.

The Great Part turned into The Great Debacle from the get-go.  What a huge disaster this was and big waste of time and money for OC taxpayers. I was never a fan of the plan, but I remember how much the local media and politics were all for it.  I just couldn't see it working out and sure enough, it never came to be. So sad.  That land should've been kept as an airport. #greatpark #epicfail #orangecounty

If you are looking for good SEO talent, you might not have to look too far if you know what and where to look for.  +Ruth Burr Reedy does a nice job breaking down the skills and traits that make up a good digital marketer.  Don't understand people.  Give them a chance to succeed or fail. They might just surprise you.  #inhouseseo #seocareers  
Hiring SEOs is hard, but training them and helping them develop as professionals is even harder. A solid professional development plan increases employee retention and happiness, and makes it easier to have conversations about raises and promotion. Here's the model we've developed to help digital marketers of all stripes grow in their roles.

So proud of my son on his 2nd student of the semester award. He is only in kindergarten but he's really doing good so far and here's hoping it continues throughout his life. #sals #prouddad

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!
