Ask me anything on Reddit next Wednesday. You can post your questions here now https://www.reddit.com/r/bigseo/comments/3hfs8n/bruce_clay_of_bci_ama_on_26th_august_2015/

They ask for "no questions about mustaches" but I'm not necessarily opposed.

First test - when you are away from the internet for a while, when you do get back where do you go first? I noticed I go to G+ first and I think it worthy. Check tomorrow... G+ grows on you quickly. I can see myself edging away from the other sites ... what were they again?

Not exactly sure what they were but G+ is a great go to place for keeping up.

I think that the opportunities for social and search and ad reach will be fantastic with G+... and I for one think Google brilliant for arranging a perfect storm. With Business Pages however, while great for small businesses, they will compete with our own websites for ranking, making G+ a hub and a top-ranking one at that... think Wikipedia for companies powered by social. You know what that means, right? SEO is top-3 organic or fail. Open for rebuttal...

Nice writeup. I know it's tempting to use URL shorteners, but I always hated the loss of branding there... What do you think of the idea of using yourdomain.com/+ as a shortcut? Provided you have a short enough domain this makes more sense to me

So I am hiring... and I suddenly wonder when JOBS will be added to G+... why not? Everyone will be here so this is a good spot to add it? Why would I want to go anywhere else?

Please take this poll, we would love your feedback!
 
My latest blog article on the +Bruce Clay, Inc. blog. Does Google have a responsibility to webmasters to refresh Penguin? I work with a lot of businesses who are under penalty that have done their due diligence in cleaning up their link profiles and have been waiting for a refresh for 10+ months now. Meanwhile, over the past 2 months, Google has seemed to refresh every algorithm EXCEPT Penguin. Does Google have a duty to refresh? Or at least be transparent about why they haven't? #seo   #penguin   #google  
Google embraces its role as moral guardians of the web and holds all the power in a near search monopoly. Google offered webmasters a means of repentance from Penguin and now owes businesses an algorithm refresh.

This is what I'm understanding. Site's have been penalized for not following guidelines as defined by Google. They've broken well defined rules, on purpose. Yes?
And most others are doing their level best to follow these guidelines. Yes?
So now after they get caught I'm asked if Google owes the No Good Nics anything. Yes?
TFB. 2 Flippin Bad.

I think that we have not seen the full impact until Google uses our data (perhaps with analytics) to out-do the FB persona targeting with their own behavior targeting for those ads that are sure to come. And I am sure we will see local and adwords impact the revenue model. I expect ad crossover will be implemented before year end. How many believe Google is NOT in business to make money?

Fascinating. I just had time to actually use G+. I think Iwill have an enhanced experience because of what was learned with Facebook& Linkedin. The early use taught me that I need to group friends as workand personal, and as colleagues, employees, competitors, work friends, or not.Thanks to Facebook for helping get us to G+... too bad you were not therefirst. I want educated dialog and proper alerts and news, not more"farmers" than a small country.
