Google takes away Ripples, and once again we have to rely on 3rd party apps to develop our relationship on the Plus.

You can tell I really don't support this decision. It's horrible!

We rely on Ripples to increase engagement, thank those who share our content and have some matrices to know how we're doing. Why take it away?!?

+Denis Labelle, soon no one will know what your cover photo relates to...

RIP Ripples, Google removes the Ripples feature

We have an available alternative, and if you're interested in seeing the engagement activity surrounding important posts, check out the Relations Graph in your NOD3x dashboard.

Google Confirms Changing How Quality Is Assessed

Earlier this month, many webmasters noticed significant Google ranking changes. Google has finally confirmed those ranking changes.

So the Phantom 2 Update was, obviously, real and now has a new name: The Quality Update. I've been tracking about 6 clients who were impacted by the update - both up and down. The swings aren't as violent as Panda but that makes it more difficult in some ways.

Earlier this month, many webmasters noticed significant Google ranking changes. Google has finally confirmed those ranking changes with us.

“It was an accidental overdose between two consenting adults,” said her lawyer.

A California prostitute charged with killing a Google executive with an overdose of heroin aboard his yacht pleaded guilty Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter and administering drugs.

Cost him his life, and her - her freedom (well, 6 years of it).

Interesting fact - She has wealthy parents and dual citizenship in the U.S. and Canada.

How many cameras do you need for a 360 degree video?

One GoPro camera can record a 170-degree view, which is basically from your far left, to your far right. With this 3D-printed 360Heros holder (available on Kickstarter), you can attach 6-7 cameras and operate them wirelessly to grab videos or shots.

Here's a video.

+Sarah Hill, how many did you have?

Yes, still geeking up all over this!

How interesting would it be to be able to watch a Hangout, or a multiple-camera live event, choose your view and drag around the scene?!? Great demo, +Sarah Hill.

I answer the questions that Google won't.

We are constantly connected now, but are we Present?

Hey there stranger, let's make this the beginning of a beautiful friendship, shall we? ღღღ

Hi, I'm Yifat - Your G+GoTo Gal, and I am passionate about the possibilities Google plus brings to our lives and to our business. You can find me discussing Google+ strategies, Google+ marketing, engagement and relationship building on my weekly hangout show - Unscripted!

But what rocks my boat, what really gets me going, is the relationships I’ve found here - on Google+. I have met amazing people who become a new family to me and with whom I now spend much of my time. These relationships and what they brought with them, are the reason I am so passionate about Google+ and I can not wait for you to experience this level of engagement, this sense of community and this depth of conversation and ideas. They will change your life for the better. Trust me on that.

I walk my talk

I am now making a living coaching, engaging and speaking about the topic I am most passionate about - Google plus and Google plus hangouts, and I can show you how to do the same: How to turn your passion into real income. Wouldn’t it be great if you could make a living from something you are completely passionate about as I am about Google+ coaching and hangout hosting and moderating?

Let me show you how to:

I host a weekly hangout onAir show, Every Thursday at 11am CST, called Unscripted Hangouts (and you might be able to be a guest on one of them). 
Unscripted Hangouts put my audience face to face with high profile experts where they learn of my guests, what they do, and are able to engage in a free, unscripted conversation with them.

Topics range from SEO, Google ranking factors, Story selling, YouTube marketing, to more entrepreneurial interviews with the likes of TJ Marchatti Senior Vice President, Digital Marketing at The Walt Disney Studios.

----- ★ღ ----- Ah, but you want to know more about me...? ----- ★ღ -- 

I’m a lover. I love life. I love my amazing husband and my incredibly cute son. I love to laugh, eat, try new things, experiment, travel (oh boy, do I love to travel). I love to push my own limits. I love to argue. I love movies and learning new things. I love compliments. I love to play. I love to read. I love to be right. I love to be loved and I really love to love. 

My Myers Briggs is ENTP (Extravert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Perceiving ), so before you're shocked by my perverse sense of humor or if you want to understand why I enjoy playing devil's advocate, read this.

Google+ marketing is the 2nd love of my life (family comes in #1). I spend most of my time playing with it and showing others how to succeed in it. I love talking about it, figuring out how it works and then how to break it, discussing it with other people and finding solutions to common problems. I own a social media marketing company, Motech Marketing and I love helping people accomplish their online goals easily and quickly. 

I really love what I do. I work from home, with people that are fun to be around and a pleasure to collaborate with. I always meet new people that I can service and I just love helping them realize how easy it is to increase their online visibility and profits.

I discovered my water heater broke just as my little toddler was shivering naked in the bath tab, Thursday night. I did what any mother would do - I heated water in the kettle, washed him briefly and got him into his warm PJ as soon as I could, feeling grateful that the next day was Friday - I could still get it repaired before the weekend. Or that's what I thought... My landlord couldn't get a hold of her handyman, and all the people they recommended weren't available that weekend. So was Teva Construction. He was fully booked, and still - he showed up. He repaired the water heater quickly, but warned me that it is out of warranty and there's a good chance it won't last long. Sure enough, that night, it stopped working again. The next day, on a Saturday, while I was at SXSW, Refael (the owner of Teva Constraction) acted like a true friend would - he arranged with my landlord to have the water heater replaced, he ensured that the replacement would take place that same day - on a Saturday, without an extra charge of an emergency call, and he followed up with a phone call to make sure the water temperature was to my liking, ready to send his guy back out or even come himself, if it wasn't. If you're looking for a handyman who treats you and your home like family, not like a side job - Teva Construction is your only smart choice.

Pricey, but my kid loves this place because of the candy he gets at the end. Service is good and for the most part they update the records so that you get the same haircut regardless of who cuts the hair.

If you only work with people who care about your yard just as much as you do, then you work with Chase. He's reliable, honest, reasonably priced and the only thing he leaves you with when he's done is the peace of mind of a job very well done. He's now my goto guy for anything sprinklers.

Dr. Murphy is the best chiropractor I've ever worked with. Not only is he knowledgeable and kind, but he never has you waiting (which is super important for those of us with busy schedules). He's very flexible with his scheduling as well - always working around your calendar to fit you in. He's working with a great masseuse that is sharing the same office, so that you can get both your chiropractic and massage done with one visit. His fees are reasonable and he'll work with you to get you in and healed even if you don't have insurance. Highly recommended.

Remember when you went to your doctor and he knew everything about you, because he KNEW you? Remember how he sat with you, un-rushed, listened to you, gave you his full attention and the best treatment to get you back on your feet in no time? This is how life is with Dr. Stavinoha. If you're looking for someone who's a doctor because he truly enjoys helping and healing and not for any other reason - Dr. Stavinoha is the only doctor you should see. I can't wait till my kid is old enough to see him, since I don't trust anyone else but him.
