About a year ago, there was an episode where The Hoth was mentioned. Was it an endorsement? I'm considering using them for a couple projects, but they use PBN's so I have concerns.

I know that Google has restriction guidelines for Adwords (tobacco, guns, etc), but are there any for SEO? In other words, do they de-value sites that have that type of content?

Regarding the local SEO show, I have clients all over the country but I find that sometimes people prefer to work with people who are local.  I work out of my house, but I do not meet clients there.  Should I still use my physical location for citations, so I can rank higher locally?  Any downside to that other than someone knocking on my door in the middle of the night :)

I have a client who rebranded a couple of years ago and created a new domain name for it. The old domain redirects to the new one, but would it be better for the new one to redirect to the old one? Not sure if they'll go for it, but curious because domain age is somewhat still important - correct? The old one is over 17 years old!

I have a client who has services and then also sells products.  Her services our on www.herdomain.com and then her products are on groceries.herdomain.com.  They are on two separate platforms and the one on the subdomain auto-generates an XML sitemap - it can't be turned off, so I have created another XML sitemap on the main domain.  I guess my question is: should the sitemap on the main domain include the urls of the subdomain or should I leave it off because it's got its own sitemap?  Any other suggestions of the best way to deal with this dilemma are welcome.

I have a client which has a parent company with a few companies under that.  They are dissolving one of the companies and plan to shutdown the website.  There's a lot of good content on its blog that could be used for one of the other companies that the parent company owns.  Wondering if anyone has ideas about the best strategy.  I'd hate that content and traffic to go to waste.  Should they keep the domain and redirect the traffic?  Or should they re-post the blogs on one of the other sites after it gets shut down or would it still be considered duplicate content?  Any other ideas?

In the Thin Content show, there was a mention about e-commerce product descriptions.  For larger ones, Ross (I think) mentioned that they should take their best sellers and re-write those.  Was there an assumption that it's ok that initially the product description was not original?  Meaning that it's ok to start out with an "unoriginal" product description and "fix" it later?  Is the theory that when Google comes crawling after the "fix" that it will then be deemed good content and then in theory the rankings will rise?  It just seems that some "damage" has already been done if the product description starts out as "unoriginal".
