Bet there's a Fox news story coming about this...
 
Do me one favor today. Before you run to share the SourceFed viral video "proving" that either Google or Hillary deliberately manipulated Google to make autosuggest for her more positive, please read this post by Rhea Drysdale, an actual expert in how that works. Thanks. It will save you from making a fool of yourself.

BTW this is not a political post. It's about good science, good data analysis, and better reasoning. Any overtly political comments will be deleted. 
Counter to SourceFed’s claim, the only manipulation of Google’s Autocomplete search results is coming from them, not Google.

Yes I know my +Google Analytics referral spam segment has been outdated for well over a month. That's because of some crappy glitch that prevented me from saving my updates.

After waiting weeks for it to suddenly start working again, I had to give up rebuild the segment from scratch, which I did this morning.
In March I speculated on Twitter that the Google analytics referral spam referral spam problem might be solved. At the time, lots of people agreed with me,

This should be the link per your tool -
https://www.google.com/search?q=Dr.+Nakul+Karkare+lindenhurst&ludocid=106491313880511922277#lrd=0x0:0x5c5dd25c25889c065,1
but all i get is the spinning colored ball, although I do see the business listed in the background - (I also tried changing it to google.com)

+Scott Hendison  looks like you are using the Google Page number and not the CID number.

The CID number is 336993046113379746 which gives you this link
https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Dr.+Nakul+Karkare+lindenhurst&ludocid=336993046113379746#lrd=0x0:0x4ad3d63d55d65a2,1

To be more accurate use this one with the full LRD

Just created this blog post checklist for one of my clients, and thought I'd share it, as it's probably useful to many (or, will inspire you to create your own!)

Someone commented on my blog that after following my instructions, nearly ALL of their +Google Analytics  referrals were spam.

This bothers me, and it bothers +Joy Hawkins and +Michael Cottam Cottam and most #localseo people I know, but seems to bother nobody at +Google ....
 
Seeing lots of spammy local listings on Google? It's not just you! Columnist Joy Hawkins notes some of the problems with Google's reinforcement of its Google My Business guidelines.

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... ;)
Work
Occupation
I'm from Portland Oregon, and began selling software online 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.

Close to the Bell conference center, low prices, waffles for breakfast and a great friendly staff are the primary reason I come back year after year.

Close, clean and delicious, with a great variety of carts. Prices are ridiculously high everywhere, but aside from that, it's a good place to go.
