What would be amazing for buffer is if it could pick up the Open Graph image from a shared post and then push that on the Twitter channel as an attached image. Right now we often must go grab the image manually and added to a Twitter share

Great points Scott! FYI, the opengraph images will be selected by default in the next version. There is a small API issue preventing me from automatically adding a photo AND a link, so this won't be available quite as soon (today), but will be available in a near-future update. Thanks again +Scott Clark!

+GigforLex 60 TBPS - wow...
 
Last week the FASTER cable, a new transpacific network link with a theoretical peak capacity of 60 Tbps (that's 60 million megabits), landed in Japan.  FASTER is a joint project between Google and several ISPs to provide, well, faster Internet speeds between the two regions.  The album (with pictures courtesy of http://gigazine.net/news/20150615-kddi-faster/) give you a quick overview of how such a cable is installed.

PS: see how this was done in 1956 for TAT-1, the first modern transatlantic telephone cable (with capacity for 36 phone calls, or about 0.2 megabits): http://atlantic-cable.com/Cables/1956TAT-1/index.htm.

So.. what has anyone ever seen google DO to businesses who gave away gift cards to customers who leave reviews?   (Not talking about fake reviews, just compensation to customer for their time in doing it.)

I'm recommending against this for client, but they want to know the real possible consequences and I couldn't tell them (other than the possible loss of the suspect reviews.)  

PS: I realize the FTC's disclosure requirements are difficult to meet in this situation - I'm more asking about what GOOGLE has done.

Having a cheap web host is not worth it ... especially if you want to get traffic.  And isn't that the point of being online?
 
Today I saw such results in SERP in android in incognito mode, see screenshots. slow in RED. So the speed of webpages is now being taken into account for in Search Engine Result Pages.
Please discuss and confirm. Have anybody noticed this already...

Excellent article +Julie Krueger - shared with client's retail division.  
Retailers can reap the revenue benefits of omni-channel shopping, but only if they know how to connect with these valuable consumers. We show you how.

So.. what has anyone ever seen google DO to businesses who gave away gift cards to customers who leave reviews on MyBusiness or Google+ Places?   (Not talking about fake reviews, just compensation to bonafide customer for their time in doing it.)  Not F.U.D. but actual examples?

I'm recommending against this for client, but they want to know the real possible consequences and I couldn't tell them any real world examples of long-term issues  (other than the possible loss of the suspect reviews.)

+Scott Clark I am not sure but believe it was just their pages. I think I heard they prevented the creation of new pages for the same business, as well, though. I would not definitely not go down that path if I were you.

I have been a customer for many years and they always provide good service in probably 15 service calls over the years. Only once was there a problem and in that case they did not follow up or return my calls where I asked them to help me with re-insulating my attic where the drain pipe from our upstairs heat had leaked (it was not glued adequately.) I think it was a fluke. We just had them install a brand new heating system for our house and it went without a hitch and on quote. I recommend them!

They work hard to fix issues, even tricky ones. I've had all manner of work done on my BMWs there from engine/injection to interior to A/C over the years. Don't rush them however - let them take the time to find the issues and parts and you'll be happy with the outcome.

Dave and crew have taken care of our trees ever since the 2003 Ice storm. Advice, treatments, trimming and removals have been done with professionalism. I am pleased to pay a slight premium over the "lowest bid" companies in Lexington in order to work with them. I am also impressed by their involvement in the Lexington green-ification efforts and various community interests/charities. Strongly recommended!

Tony's did a pre-purchase inspection on a used car for us and took it for a drive - spending 45 minutes of their time. They put it up on a lift, checked pressures, fluids and more. And wouldn't take a dime. A friendly smile from the whole staff. Don't let the modest shop fool you! It's the people that count! We hope not to need many repairs, but it's great to have a shop we can go to!
