We looked at mobile traffic for the past 18 months, and far from Mobilegeddon, we found that the majority of our sites really benefited from this update. 
Mobilegeddon is an apocalyptic, destructive term, and it’s time to let it go, because we’re actually in an age of Mobile Nirvana.

Interesting perspective on disruption in the media business via Google's chief economist...
Summary: Hal Varian, Google’s chief economist, talked about the challenges facing the newspaper business in a recent presentation in Italy, and showed that he understands those challenges better than most media executives.

I posted this traffic analysis of Facebook and Google on the +Define Media Group, Inc blog. 
Facebook and Google now constitute a traffic-driving duopoly, as our analysis found that 47% of all traffic in our network comes from these two sites.

Looks like we've finally got some relief from Dark Google with the release of iOS 7. SEOs, Analysts and Website Owners can have some confidence now in the search and direct traffic numbers being reported.

+Rand Fishkin , +Eric Enge and +Mark Traphagen  on correlation, causation, and apparently the history of jazz. what's not to like? h/t +Gianluca Fiorelli  
 
Correlations, Causation, and all that Jazz

If you follow SEO at all, you have heard all about it - correlations are not causation.  Yet, many persist in citing correlations as proof of what signals search engines use.  What is the real story? What value can I get from a correlation study?  It turns out you can get a ton of value from them if you look at the data that right way.

Watch as I discuss this exact topic with +Rand Fishkin on October 17, 2013 at 4 PM ET (Boston time).  We will also have +Mark Traphagen joining us at a film strip panelist!

This is a live broadcast, and the link to the live YouTube feed will be posted 1 minute before the show goes live.

Please spread the word and re-share the event to others, and feel free to invite others!

Dr. Paghdiwala and the staff at Pearl Dental Arts are phenomenal. My entire family (two kids, wife and myself) recently had dental work done there. Dr. Paghdiwala and his staff made all of us feel comfortable, and did an amazing job addressiong all of our specific dental needs. Dr. Paghdiwala himself is incredibly knowledgeable, skilled and thorough. He truly cares for the patient, and makes you feel secure in the knowledge that he's performing a procedure only with the patient's best interests in mind. (Unfortunately, with other dentists, I got the sense that they pushed expensive treatments that seemed unnecessary to me, but were lucrative to them). When you're undergoing a procedure, he takes the time to carefully explain exactly what he's doing and why he's doing it, so you feel comfortable and secure as he and his staff are diligently working away. The entire office is run smoothly, professionally and with great care. Pearl Dental Arts puts the patient first, and in my experience, that is a rare thing in this day and age.

My family had a great time at Mount Snow. The facilities and food were wonderful. My kids, age 7 and 4, were enrolled in the group classes, and they really enjoyed them. And it didn't hurt that when we went,18 inches of fresh powder had just fallen! I'd definitely recommend this resort for families, especially those in the NY/NJ area who want a taste of Vermont skiing, since it's in the south and a bit less of a drive.
