Nice - (I like it, even though Google may be putting another sector out of business)
 
Cool. Google is testing a live chat feature in the knowledge panel to help local businesses connect with customers.

Hey +microsoft - Are you KIDDING ME? I just paid $220 for an Office product because i need it NOW, not because I want it tomorrow.  You SUCK. I could have driven to +BestBuy!  On what planet is a 4 to 6 hour wait acceptable to process an order and give me my license?

This is the default referral email text from a  +Dollar Shave Club account - Hilarious -  

Hey Pal,

As you know, I am very good looking. And as a good looking person, I can’t trust my handsome skin to just ANY old razor. That’s why I only shave with the amazing razors I get delivered from Dollar Shave Club. 

Every month, they send me a box with my shave supplies. At the beginning of the week (or whenever I want) I pop on a fresh blade and get that fresh blade shave. It feels fantastic, and it’s just one of the many, many ways I maintain the good looks that everyone has come to expect from me.

You should join me in Dollar Shave Club. Their plans start at $3/month and they have a money back guarantee. So there’s really no excuse not to join. Check them out and let me know what you think. Who knows, after a few silky smooth, fresh blade shaves, you could end up extremely good looking, like me.

P.S. When you use this link to join, I get $5. Cha-ching!
Dollar Shave Club sends high quality razors to your door for a few bucks a month so you can always shave with a fresh blade. Satisfaction guaranteed. Join today!

Yup
 
I wrote a post (with +Jessie Low's  help) on the SEMrush blog. This is a handy little audit I do before every sales call, just to get a sense of where they are at with their local optimization and find some low hanging fruit. Hope you find it helpful!

Despite adding this code to multiple sites in previous months, I've yet to see it actually work. Is it like Google Maps Street View? We  just have to wait for the schema car to come by? 
 
The Google Knowledge Graph now displays Social Profile Links

New in Google search: when you search for certain celebrities or well-known personalities, Google may show links and icons to their social profiles within the Google Knowledge graph panel.

+Barry Schwartz gives examples of the icons showing up when you search for Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian, Neil Young, Kristen Bell (http://tgcafe.it/1t8YDdi).

+Bernd Rubel was the one who originally spotted the feature (what were you doing looking up Kim Kardashian anyway, Bernd!) and shared it on G+ (http://tgcafe.it/1EZARsF).

I love what +David Amerland said in his comment on Bernd's original post: this is the "joining the dots" that Google is increasingly doing across the web. First time I see it in action so comprehensively.

Work
Occupation
I'm from Portland Oregon, and I've been marketing online for nearly a dozen years; since before the turn of the century. I'm a father, husband, SEO Consultant, affiliate marketer. I'm the CEO of Search Commander, Inc. and the creator of SEO Automatic, some white label WordPress plugins.

Story
Tagline
Father, husband, and internet marketing veteran. I was an 'SEO' before it was a bad word.
Introduction
I began learning about search marketing before the turn of the century, and today I run an independent SEO consulting business in Portland, a web hosting company, a WordPress website business, and  I have developed a set of white label SEO tools for WordPress.

(These text links are here because it used to be what was done in the old days, and I can't bring myself to remove em ;)

1999 - I first began dabbling in search while trying to get rid of over 4000 software titles we had accumulated at my local Portland computer & software store (Cyber Exchange) which we closed in 2002. 

2002 - 2004 - With success at both PPC and organic ranking, I remained in the computer repair business on call,  but quickly realized that I MUCH preferred working in search. 

After forming Search Commander, Inc.,  I sought out formal training from Search Engine Workshops, and I have been attending, learning, and speaking at various internet marketing conferences ever since. 

2009  - I developed SEO Automatic, an instant "on page" URL checker that not only identified the issues, but provided my own advice, that I wrote.

The following year, we made that same tool available to other search firms as a WordPress plugin, editing their own advice, in both a  free version with 5 ranking factors at WP.org, and a premium version with 18 and more coming at SEO Automatic

The SEO Tools plugin gives  the SEO Consultant the ability to to offer their visitors a URL box and button as a shortcode.  

Pressing the button delivers a lengthy "on page" SEO analysis, giving your own feedback, advice and suggestions. 

2012 -  I can be reached almost anywhere, from Search Commander, Inc., to Twitter as @shendison 

Bragging rights
I'm a recovering affiliate marketer put out of business by Penguin, but it was a fun ride while it lasted... ;)

For a family of 4 to eat Sushi can get expensive, but here we can get by for under $50..They have a pretty good selection at 1$ a plate, and a friendly owner is almost always there. The hand rolls are usually my choice, and kids favorites are the Calamari, Pot Stickers and California Rolls.

The food is good, and the service is fast, but the price and portion sizes are just not in line with all of the great local Mexican restaurants and food carts. There are just too many options to eat here as a first choice so we only do it when we're in the mall anyway...

Our family has been here three times, since we live in the neighborhood, and we always leave pretty happy. The burgers are great, but although the buns are very fresh , )I think from the bakery next door), they are too small so you're left with a tall thick burger that's too hard to eat with a bun that kind of falls apart. Use a slifhtly larger diameter bun, and I'll revise this to 4 or 5 stars...

We totally love this place, for their awesome burgwrs, great beer selection, and friendly service. Sure it's a dive bar, but they allow kids, and it's the best burger east of 82nd Ave. Try it!

We had our kitchen floor done by Classique quite a while ago, and they did a very good job explaining to me, a layperson, some of the differences between linoleum and larmoleum . Now we're thinking about carpeting, and they are the first place we're thinking about.

We liked everything about this place, until they added the indoor dining restaurant with a surly woman as bartender and removed the beer from the outside tent area. We still go here often, and love most of the food carts, but now we never spend money on beer anymore since they took it out of the tent. That's actually a good thing I guess, because it's cheaper for us.
