Most tiles on this Windows 8 Desktop won't open, and the user gets the error -  
"THIS APP CAN'T OPEN  
There's a problem with [Most Apps Named]  Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it."  

This is a screen shot  - from a month old computer with practically nothing on it but Office and scanning software.  

WTF could this be?  and even if its fixable, how can anyone have any confidence in it going forward? 

yeah yeah, I know, get a Mac, but that's not gonna happen.

Seems that the Oregon Garden Resort has a unique way of promoting reviews...    I wonder if they think this is actually okay?

Even the cover image at the official Google webmasters page is cut off on both sides -  I can't believe that was intentional, and think they've fallen victim to their own flaky cover image process...

Trying to set up a new client, and i'm having trouble importing the Analytics goals as Adpords conversions  -  The button will not "light up"   for import.  Very odd.

I have the correct AdWords account number showing as linked in the admin for Google Analytics and it looks like things are fine. 

I had 100% certainty on correct Analytics and Adwords accounts, and do have full account admin access to Analytics and the AdWords account is in my MCC.

Any +Adwords pros seen this before or have any ideas? Maybe  +Tom Hale  or +Tom Hale, Jr.   or +Todd Mintz  perhaps?  ;)

After the goal is set-up an actual conversion from AdWords has to occur before it will "light up", if I understand right - ditto with Todd's hands on. Hard to know.

It's not often you see a graphic touting, "Hey Look! We're getting Crappier" but this is the second one I've seen from +LinkedIn  in under a year.

First they killed off Answers which I really liked and encouraged clients to use, and now they're killing off polls, which were another decent way to actually get some legitimate engagement.

Why?

nice to see this coming...
The franchise agreement brings service a good deal closer, outlining the terms under which Google would operate in Portland.

Funny to think about all those old implementations of rel="canonical" and so on, huh?  

"...Google is considering giving a boost in its search-engine results to websites that use encryption..." says the +The Wall Street Journal  citing recent +Matt Cutts statements.

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.

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

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

Great service, but so-so food and overpriced too. We had the "blackened" halibut that was neither blackened nor seasoned much? deep fried prawns that were good, but were cooked in oil that needed a change, and prime rib that was "okay" but a bit overdone for the med rare order. The carrot soup was not hot but delicious, and the clam chowder was amazing (and hot too). We came here after seeing it on Diners Driveins and Dives but were disappointed to find that the featured sloppy joe burger was a "lunch only" item. Duh. Good marketing... All in all, not terrible but probably wont be back unless its lunchtime to try the famous sloppy joe...

We had a terrible experience here for dinner with burned food, watery "cream of" mushroom soup, the thinnest shakes i've ever seen, and my wife's meal was completely forgotten. When they did make her meal, serving it after the rest of the table finished, it was the wrong item! They didn't even offer an apology,and the response was "sometimes things happen". Absolutely awful, and I'll never eat there again.

I've been referring people to Steve Karm for over 10 years now, after closing our retail computer store (Cyber exchange) in 2002. He's patient, thorough, and really knows his stuff, and to this day he still services the offices of some marketing clients that I work with... Three thumbs up!

"Can you guys get me in a tux in three hours?" was my question on the phone, and "where are you staying?" was the answer. From the time of my phone call to the time he arrived at the door was about 35 minutes, and he measured me and had the tux back to my room about an hour later. Amazing! Everything fit perfectly, but just in case, he sent an extra pair of pants and an extra jacket. They even threw in two types of tie because I wasn't quite sure which I wanted when he asked. Great service - HIGHLY recommended!
