It sure is starting to look a lot like 2002 for Google Search.  What are your thoughts?
 
Google is removing more and more "fluff" from the search results. I shared some of my thoughts about it.

"It's over Jonny"... Looks like Google has turned off Authorship.  Uy Vey!
After three years the great Google Authorship experiment has come to an end ... at least for now. Today John Mueller of Google Webmaster Tools announced in

Even more of a reason to embrace Google+.
 
Here's What Google Search Without Author Photos Looks Like

The rollout of the new Google search with author photos removed just hit me. There is a slight difference between logged out and personalized search.

Logged Out of Google
In non-personalized search, as predicted, only a byline shows. It appears right under the site URL and in line with the beginning of the meta description. 

I'm seeing a lot of bylines for certain queries, more than there were author photos in those queries earlier today. That is in line with what +John Mueller said in yesterday's Webmaster Central Hangout, that for now all one needs to get a byline is a correct Authorship connection on the page that Google can parse. No more differentiation of "better" authors as there was when you could have a photo or a byline.

Personalized Search
The big news for personalized (logged in to your Google account) search is that _author photos may still show for Google+ posts by people you have in your circles. See the example for +Joshua Berg below. Every other authorship result now looks just like those in the logged out search example.

This means another huge advantage for those who are active on Google+ and who have built a large following. You will stand out even more in relevant searches for people who are in your network, especially since there will be no other author photos crowding out yours!

What I think makes this even more interesting is that Google is about as close to being Cyberdyne Systems (the corporation that created Skynet in the Terminator series) as we have today.  Maybe Larry and Sergey are actually from the future?  Hmmmm... ;-)

My client just put out her very first blog post and I wanted to share it with the world.  It's not much but it is a great start and it's kinda funny too.  What do you think?

If you're hit by Google Panda 4, this post *might* help you fix it in a very simple way. Robots.txt-ing your CSS & JS might be the cause.

Looks like blocking your .css & .js could have Panda 4.0 implications.

It had been far too long since I'd last been to a dentist and I was really worried about what the outcome would be. But there was not much I could do about the pain I was experiencing in my mouth. So, I finally broke down and made an appointment with Dr. Franceschi who came highly recommended to me by a close friend. They got me in super fast as I was in a lot of pain. Going in I was really nervous but right away the office manager Nancy made me feel relaxed and at ease assuring me everything would be OK. When Dr. Franceschi entered the room he was very pleasant and listened carefully to what was wrong and began the examination. He then showed me the x-rays that had been taken by his assistant and took some additional high res photo's of some problem areas so he could clearly show me and explain to me what the problems where and what treatment he's recommend. He spent a lot of time with me answering all my questions and explaining the areas that concerned him and what needed to be done to correct everything. I walked out of his office that first time feeling 100% better than I walked in and realized that the dentist is a lot scarier in my head then it is in the chair. I've since been back to Dr. Franceschi's office two additional times, including today, where I saw the hygienist for a deep cleaning. As always, the office staff was very nice and accommodating, willing to take some time to talk to you, explain things to you and/or answer your questions. I've since told a couple of friends about Dr. Franceschi and I plan to continue to use him for all my dental needs. Thanks again Dr. Franceschi, you rock!

Tom Peerless of Peerless Pressure Washing came out to my home today and cleaned my Lanai Cage and Deck, the exterior of my house, and the driveway and sidewalks and walkway of my home. Before he arrived our white Lanai looked more like a shade of green as it had never been cleaned in the 8 years since it was built. I was afraid to have it pressure washed for fear of blowing out all the screens. Tom assured me his non pressure system would do a great job and not affect the screens at all. He was true to his word as the lanai looks almost new again. I can't get over how nice it looks. Then he turned his attention on the exterior of our home. The most amazing part was the front of the house facing the street that had a lot of discoloration from dirt or mold or something. When I finally stepped out in front and looked up I could not believe how much nicer the whole house looked. All bright and shiny almost like it was freshly painted again. Finally Tom turned his pressure washing system on to my concrete driveway, the sidewalk in front of my home and the walkway to our front door (and the front patio area as well). All were very dirty and discolored some even covered with moss and mold or mildew. The driveway was a particular mess as it gets a lot of activity. After he was finished pressure washing everything the whole area looked great. Now my homeowners association can kiss my a** about the look of my home. I made sure to ask Tom for a few business cards before he drove off so I can give a few to my neighbors as I'm sure they will want to know what we did to our house to get it so clean. When it's time to clean the roof, you can be sure I'll be calling you Tom. I would highly recommend Tom Peerless and Peerless Pressure washing for your own home cleaning needs. Thanks again!

Let me start out by saying that I'm a web guy. Fixing/repairing cars has never been my thing. So I've always found it important to find a good, honest mechanic. However, since I don't know much about cars that can be difficult to find. I've lived in Land O Lakes for around 9 years ago and went looking for a local mechanic a couple of years ago so I could stop paying dealer prices for everyday service. I looked around a bit online and read a bunch of reviews for different places and decided to give Paul's Mobile a shot. He was pretty close to where I lived and I figured anyone that's been in business for 2 generations must be doing something right. In the past few years, Paul's Mobile has repaired my AC, installed a set of new front struts and done some other service work on my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT. I've always been very happy with the work they've done but today they've truly earned my respect! When my car wouldn't start earlier in the week, I got it jump-started and took it to Advanced Autoparts to get the battery tested. The guy at Advanced hooked it up to a machine and told me it was likely my starter since the battery and alternator looked good based on the readouts. I also had taken my car to the dealer a few months ago for something minor and they recommended some additional work which I passed on due to funds at the time. So today, I brought my old girl over to Paul to get looked out do to the starting issues. Of course it started right up in my driveway but I couldn't have that doubt moving forward. Paul came right out as I pulled in and hooked it up to test the battery and said it looked fine. He also looked at the two items the dealer told me I should have repaired, asked me a couple of questions about each and told me it was not yet necessary to do anything and to wait until I really needed it (explaining what to look out for). Finally, he agreed with what the Advanced Autoparts guy said that my issue was likely my starter but he wouldn't be able to know for sure unless the issue starting up happened while at the shop (which of course they never do). So he showed me where the starter was on my car and a little trick to get the starter to work in a pinch and sent me on my way telling me to come back when I knew for sure it was the starter. I'll tell you what, in my nearly 32 plus years of driving, I've never, ever had a mechanic send me away telling me he'd be happy to do the repairs if I wanted him too but that I should probably wait on doing any of them until we knew for certain what the issue was. Wait you mean you are not just going to take my money and do the repairs anyway? That conversation has earned Paul's Mobile my respect and more importantly my business and my future recommendation and referrals. Thank's Paul for your honesty and integrity. It's rare to find it in the auto industry and it is much appreciated! I'll see you next time when things are really wrong.

A big thanks to Bill at Professional Garage Door for his quick response to my broken garage door spring (at my place 30 minutes after my call), a great price (including an additional $10 off coupon from his Google Place Page) and fast friendly service (start to finish in about 30 minutes)! Call him if you need your garage door springs replaced. Highly Reccommended.
