I don't think this is the best way to go about saying you were published in the New York Times! #onlinereputation  
 
You seriously cannot make this stuff up.   Too funny.
Jeff Gohringer posted a picture of a funny letter to the editor of the New York Times, basically asking to print the letter he wrote so when his patients Google him, it would show up. Above is a pict

This might have been written a year ago, but still very relevant. Aside from the search ramifications, it's super annoying as a user on a desktop, when you are pushed to a mobile version of a website.

Would Steve Jobs have been cool with buying "Beats by Dre"? NO! He would have said "Let's make it better". Apple -- what are you doing?

This is all about keeping iTunes relevant. Given Apple's cash on hand, $3B is a small price to pay toward that end. Apple doesn't care about the hardware, but if morons keep paying $350 for headphones that cost $15 to make, so much the better!

Is Reach Local a Rip Off?

This article is a few months old, but still very relevant. The comments are still ongoing through today with complaints about Reach Local.

One particularly interesting comment comes from an ex-employee, who also happened to be an SEM manager before going to Reach Local. Gives some insight into the woeful lack of knowledge on staff: http://screenwerk.com/2013/09/03/whats-wrong-at-reachlocal/#comment-3006058

Between companies like Reach Local that inflate cost per click and Google calling on Adwords customers directly to upsell them on sitelinks and extensions  - it's no wonder people are losing faith in Adwords.

I love how +Rand Fishkin explains this concept. Marketing online in the age of "click bait" isn't as easy as performing some SEO to a page and hoping it will rank. You really have to take into account that what works on social doesn't work as well in search results and each don't generally feed conversions alone.

There is a three-pronged approach to marketing each type of conversion which takes into account how social plays into search results; which ultimately drives traffic to your conversion pages. 

My explanation is likely a complicated example of this relatively simple concept -- just watch the video from +Moz  to learn more ;-) http://moz.com/blog/headline-writing-title-tag-seo-clickbait-world-whiteboard-friday -SH

Internet marketing chick, web strategist, open source advocate, all around nerd
Introduction
I have been working with open source web software since 2006 (Mambo anyone? yikes!). I have watched it evolve, contributed and fell in love with the idea of allowing software to evolve by the people, for the people. 

For the past several years my husband (and business partner) and I have been working with Wordpress and watched it grow from a humble blogging platform to a robust content management system. As a company, we've developed solutions using Wordpress for everything from a simple niche market website to a local government intranet (and many, many types of applications in between).

Introducing others to the money and time saving benefits of open source website software has become a passion of ours. The days of being locked into a proprietar solution/provider are coming to an end (we hope). Viva la free market!

Aside from our company's focus on web development, I am particularly fascinated with online marketing and have in the past few years become certified by Google and Hubspot for their individual marketing methodologies. I never stop learning and spend several hours weekly keeping up to speed with both the paid and organic sides of search marketing, on top of various aspects of social media marketing; I don't consider it work, though. To me, the internet is a fascinating place; I love helping businesses utilize it to market themselves.

A motto I've surely stolen from somewhere online: "Love what you do and never work a day in your life." ;-)
