Dear #google, I understand what you did with google drive but I find it a little user unfriendly to have to save a document to drive first  when opening a gmail message, and then have to open it in docs, or, when on #ipad   look for it in drive, and then have it open in docs, especially when they are different apps on the #ipad #googledriverant -Maybe add a button that says...."open in docs" in #gmail #idk

You can now sign up and use Google Domains in the US with no invite! The service is clean and has several neat features like support for dynamic DNS. I've also been impressed with how the team listens to feedback and responds. Check out the service!

And if you're outside the US, you can sign up for when Google Domains is available in more countries.

The need for #video on today's #business #websites  
If a Picture Says 1000 Words, Then Video Is… Priceless by +Neil Patel 

"Why do you use pictures on your website? Because they can help illustrate the message you are trying to get across, right? Although that is true, have you thought about using video instead?

Not only do videos provide a 74% increase in your visitors’ understanding of your product or service compared to pictures, but they also increase the likelihood of your visitors purchasing your product or service by 64%.

If that doesn’t convince you to start using videos on your website, hopefully the infographic below will."

Search engine technology and the way people use it changes and evolves all the time.  The same can be said for business websites. One day, your website that is not built in a mobile friendly way is working just fine, and then a big change happens seemingly overnight, and your company’s site traffic plummets as well as it’s conversions. Your job as an entrepreneur and start-up founder is to build a product that solves a problem, finds a way to mon...

Many view first four top links as a batch and barely look at #ads on #googlesearchresults
The golden triangle heat tracking results that were first shown in how people viewed Google search results back in 2005 have changed - people view Google's search results differently now, because those results have changed, having become richer than they were.
Google used to be criticized for providing little more than "10 blue links" in its search results that sent searchers to other sites. More recently, it's getting lots of flack from companies and antitrust officials in Europe for the opposite--providing direct answers that make it less likely searchers will click [...]

Love conquers all fears
Experience has shown me that the greatest inner tranquillity comes from developing love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove our fears and insecurities and gives us strength to face obstacles - it is the ultimate source of success in life.
