Needs some feedback!

Site is dated.     Needs to be updated.    Its semi responsive, but want ot make it fully responsive.   I've  been investigating some fully responsive frameworks   (Specifically Zurbs Foundation Framework 5)

So far I'm please with most if it,  but have just come across an implementation of theirs that may have some negative SEO ramifications.

They have a "navigation" (like a typical left side navigation)  that is put into place when on small (phone) devices as "Off Canvas"    (a button scrolls it from the left to display on the device)     and a normal left side navigation when on larger devices like a landscape tablet or  PC.

The way they do this is the ability to hide one set of navigation links for a 2nd set of navigational links.        Well that's 2x the same links.....all visible in the code....but not visible to the user.

Wouldn't this double the number of links and thus degrade their possible "Link Juice" benefits?

Has this been used in other Frameworks like  Genesis?    

What's best practice here?

+Trey Collier Alright, I see it now.  I guess the biggest thing I see is that you're still using the same design you had back in 2001.  Are the products dating from that time as well?

You've certainly got the content, but boy it's presented poorly.  And a blog with the last entry dated September, 2013?  What are you doing over there?

I'd get on a regular content schedule.  The blog only goes back to 2008, so how much traffic are you getting from those old posts?  They look pretty short to me.  Maybe it's time to ditch the whole thing and start over with a better user-interface.

What?  How?   Why?

The two pages with logo on them I created, but these other two just showed up.

Anyone see this before?    How to fix?

<getting technical.....but don't think it makes a difference>    Does Big "G" 301 the Number version of of your Google+ profile/Page to the vanity?    If so, would it improve your position if you linked to the vanity in both publisher and/or author?

Cate is Rocking her Tumbling Skills

Cate wanted to show me her new skills and asked me to take her to practice.      I took her.   I haven't been in several months, so I was kinda surprised at her progress.  

I'm super glad she likes doing this.   She just joined "Team Sega" for gymnastics, but her core tumbling skills were taught to her by Todd Gangwish at Memphis Pride.

You are rocking it Cate!      

I used Windows Life Movie Maker to put this together quickly, filmed it with my phone cam  (Samsung Note 3)

Story
Tagline
I'm a tech savvy eCommerce business owner. SEO is fun for me. I can steer you in the right direction if you aren't tech savvy. Be happy to do it too. :)
Introduction
Grew up as a Military Brat.   (Thanks Dad.   Hats off to my Mom too as it took a special person to be married to someone in the military)

Long time Nerd (Yes, I was excited to upgrade my 300 baud modem to 1200 baud to browse CompuServe and a myriad of BBS's faster).    Nerds are cool.

Was a serious competitive swimmer, and later a 2 man Sand volleyball player.     Played raquetball in between their seasons to stay in shape.    Now I'm in perfect shape.....Round is a shape, right?   LOL

Due to my Uncle Fred who was a famous engineer at  Auburn University to have 1st super sonic wind tunnel in USA,   he was a sailor.    He taught me how to sail on his Flying Scot.    Later I raced and did well among the top 50 in the world with Hobie 16ft Cats.    :) 

I was the "Computer Guy" before there were specialized IT jobs like network engineers,  database administrators, webmasters or Social Media Bloggers.   I still maintain my first web based email address on yahoo email circa 1993.  

I've consulted with Harrah's Entertainment, Promus, First Tennessee Bank, Williams Sonoma, Bank of America and countless others over the years. 

I'm well aware of the start up and ongoing issues of running a pure online company.   I have much more to learn.   See outdoor patio products at www.BackyardCity.com or pool supplies & equipment at www.BackyardCityPools.com and get your covers at www.MightyCovers.com.

I love to help others learn what I have learned about SEO and Internet Marketing and the like.   

I love to hear about and learn new ways to do the same.       

Lets have some fun learning G+.

Replacement Pool Filter Cartridges for Swimming Pools &amp; Spas by MFG

I've been to many steak houses all across the USA & Canada. And I'm not talking about chain steak houses like Ruth's Chris. I'm talking more along the likes of Smith & Wollensky in Chicago, or St. Elmo Steakhouse in Indianapolis or that of Carnevino in Las Vegas. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted a steak that rivals those above. (St Elmo's is still my favorite) I'm very partial to rib eye, but was in the mood for some seafood. We were promptly seated at a small table, with nice comfy wide chairs. The atmosphere was nice, but it was a little loud, but that could just be the table of 6 people with the 5 bottles on wine on it. :P I was comfortable. We decided on the anti-pasta for our appetizer, which should be marked for parties of 4+. I didn't want to stop eating it. But I knew what else I ordered and forced myself to stop. She ordered Grilled Salmon with steamed asparagus, I decided to feed both my craving for seafood and my carnivorous need to steak. I chose the 20oz bone in Rib Eye "Cowboy" steak, with Oscar topping (hollandaise sauce, with carmelized onions and Lobster meat) with saute spinich. Both the vegetables was more than enough for 3 people. My 1st bite of the steak didn't have any part of the Oscar, and wow did it get my attention. The knife dropped right thru the meat as it was very tender. 2nd bite was mixed with lobster meat and sauce and I'm still drolling over it now 24hrs later. I slowly at each bite as it was like slow dancing with that special someone you finally got the nerve to ask to dance. The service was very good, prompt, and not over zealous. I am not a food critic, nor a writer (as you can tell) I just felt compelled to let some others know of this place (that replaced DUX in the Peabody Hotel) and of this awesome steak! It was far better than any Ruth's Chris' (or Flemings or Folks Folly here in the Memphis area) and on par with those I mention above for sure. I cannot wait to go back! Is tomorrow too soon?

Never heard of this place. Not that many reviews. I have no idea why as this place was delight. Outside was old Tin roof with Canoe on roof, kinda like a Trappers Field house. We were greeted by a 10+ foot stuffed Alaskan Brown bear. It took me and the kids about 10 mins to compare hand vs paw sizes. We were seated immediately by Shayla (I think that's her name, great service by her) Trapper decorations everywhere. Never seen so many types of stuffed animals, trapping equipment, and even a live baby aligator. (wonder if it will be on the menu in a few years) Fish, steak, chicken, shrimp, Gator and lots more on the menu. Something for everyone. Had the Gator for Appitizers. Fried was pretty good, but the Cajun styled Gator was out of the Swamp awesome. They are known for their Prime rib, so had one of them with Mesquite grilled shrimp. Simply devine. Service was Great. Atmosphere made me think I was in a Swamp Trappers hut in the Mountains! LOL Full bar avail. Wine & Beer. (Sweet Tea was my choice and was quite good) Cannot wait to travel to OK City again to this place. If you have a chance and don't go....you are truely missing a great dinner experience.

Used Google Maps and the reviews to find this place. Was in town for a family reunion. Two places show up at top and this was one of them. One of my local cousins said this was the best place in ALL of Oklahoma City for steak. I had the Presidential T-Bone. (I'm normally a ribeye). I have to say it was cooked the way I asked, hot, and juicy. 22oz of mouth watering beef. Only wish I could have taken back the bone to my dog. She'd paw out a good review too. This T-Bone beat out all but a few Ribeyes I've ever had and at much pricier establishments. Its is an old County Cafe styled dining that was established 100+ years ago. Not fancy, not dirty either. Quaint and comfortable. Great Steak at any price. Awesome steak for the value. I'll be sure to come back as I'd like to try their ribeye next time.
