Uber reaching into Google to hire head of Google Express shows that it is unlikely to remain just a 'car service'. Once upon a time Amazon was thought of as an online bookstore. Should be interesting. http://recode.net/2014/11/07/uber-hires-googles-same-day-delivery-boss/

Google is working on deleting entries in its index as per the ''Right to Be Forgotten'  EU ruling. To date Facebook.Com is the domain most affected - second place is profileengine.com which is surprising.  It's all outlined at :

Now is a good time to add a search engine and markup code to your site. Google's Sitelinks Search Box is becoming more prominent and may add an extra step between the SERP and your page.  As per Google's blog post:

'If you implement the markup on your site, users will have the ability to jump directly from the sitelinks search box to your site’s search results page. If we don’t find any markup, we’ll show them a Google search results page for the corresponding site: query.'

So if Google shows their own SERP it may be filled with competitor's ads and they may never get to your site. SEW explains at http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2364033/Google-Launches-Improved-Sitelinks-Search-Box

A couple quotes re: Angie's list stick out:

1. 'Angie’s List, which employs about 2,000 workers, has never turned an annual profit.' (from ibj.com )

2.  'To anyone under the age of 30, the idea of paying for reviews or online content of any sort is probably puzzling. ' (from money.com)

There should be an auditing organization (like theBPA for print) that tests some of these 'members/users' claims.

After reading http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/03/technology/how-facebook-sold-you-krill-oil.html and then reading the Wall at https://www.facebook.com/schiffmegared gotta wonder if people posting all those 'likes' have a clue what they are 'liking'.  Sure they say the campaign was a success but still, I gotta wonder...
