http://bit.ly/1hCwMhb - In this post, I take a look at the essential things I believe a content strategist needs to know about SEO to help them build a framework and better work with/utilize an SEO. Would love feedback and suggestions on how to improve this piece of content.

Very interesting use of Google glass. This is the type of stuff people don't think about with the new wearable technologies that are coming out.
The project coordinator envisions an ambulance crew someday using the eyeglass technology to provide real-time video and audio from the field.

That's right, I'm posting tips on how to use Google+ ...on Google+ . Some excellent ideas in here! http://moz.com/blog/google-plus-tips-seo
While not everyone has an audience active on Google+, the number of people who interact socially with any Google products on a monthly basis now reportedly ​exceeds 500 million.

There are some interesting points of discussion in here related to links and both how Google and Bing might be viewing them. Highly recommend reading all of it as it's important stuff for getting the entire link building and SEO picture http://sugarrae.com/online-marketing/seo/meet-search-engines-smx-west-2014/?utm_content=buffere4b61&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer done by +Rae Hoffman

Yeah +Todd McDonald, I try to keep the tinfoil hat off my head as I listen to him. I definitely agree that reading into his statements can (and generally is) taken to far. But the context of the quotes/statements usually adds quite a bit. Hopefully the SMX folks decide to be generous and put up a video.

Win Minds, Not Rankings. In this post I cover what I feel is a stronger strategic approach to digital marketing than breaking things out into channels. If you're a business owner, think first about the customer and how to build them as an advocate. That will help you in more ways than anyone can even say in organic search. #seo   #digitalmarketing  #digitalstrategy #contentmarketinghttp://www.newbrewmedia.com/22-win-minds-not-rankings

I rarely write reviews, but I felt that I needed to here. I was very disappointed in the service that I received while poking around for a ring for my wife. I stopped recently specifically because they've been advertising a large sale and thought I would see if they had a type of diamond that my wife is interested in. Originally, I was treated very politely by a younger staff member who was friendly, helpful, and courteous. However, at some point in the conversation an older woman took over and after explaining why I was there (because of the sale), and what I was looking for, I was told they didn't have anything but that she could order something. After passing along my information and the price range I was working (which is not too low based on other diamonds that are similar that I've seen) in, I was quickly shutdown and rudely told I would never be able to get anything like that. I was also told that even "bargain basement" diamonds of a different, less unique cut, were not available in that range. Sorry to say but the communication I received was an insulting enough experience for me to not bother with ever returning. It's perfectly fine if what you can offer is not in my price range, but there are certainly more tactful ways of handling the situation.
