This is the most useless video in YouTube history.  Do NOT waste time watching it - that is all.

Does removing a space in your local search generate a "Places Page" link?   - It doesn't for me, but I can replicate his search...
 
Anyone else see Place page replace Google+ Page in search results?

Huh - a new reason for me to hate Apple - WTF is this? Not only my site, but a couple others that we've converted over to https:// on the same box.  On all of the domains, everything was fine until some time on the past two weeks, I'm not sure when.  Ugh...

+SEMpdx  is having a four hour non-technical Local SEO event event for business owners Tuesday August 11th the day of the Rooftop party, and then inviting them all to the Rooftop party. Should make for some great networking...  Pass this along please?  
A half-day workshop to show you how to add and improve the information that shows up on Google search about your company & increase your online presence.

I've long assumed so - "...So what’s more plausible? That Google uses click-through rate as a signal or that the most data driven company in the world would ignore direct measurement from their own product?"

Foursquare Swarm Brings Back Mayorships

Got this in my email today and could only think, so it's going that poorly for Foursquare huh? Because since they split the service into two apps I've completely abandoned both. Perhaps I wasn't alone and now they're furiously trying to boost engagement again by integrating features from one into the other. 

It's just a complete mess as far as I'm concerned. After a few years of making all the right moves Foursquare drove themselves into a ditch and, frankly, I don't see them digging themselves out of it any time soon - if ever.

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... ;)

Occupation

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.

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.

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...
