You realise this is how the Cornish feel about Florida?

"The question of where Europe ends and Asia begins has troubled many people over the years, but here's a rule of thumb: if someone can pose as an expert on the country in question without knowledge of the relevant language, it's part of Asia."

A kernel of truth there. Thanks, +Michael Turton

It's always the way - loaded down with work, and something terribly interesting drifts across your radar. A cursory browse followed by a swift bookmarking will have to do for now.

#googleauthorship is now showing up for some searches that bring up my old writing from Tailingua. It reminds me how much that site needs an overhaul. Bit weird seeing your own face in Google search results; will have a noticeable effect on rankings or traffic?

Wondering what +Joe Pairman makes of the #StructuredData suggestions here for us folks who don't spend most of our time thinking about structured data.

This kind of thing is really still in its infancy on the web, and implementation is pretty haphazard.

Currently testing out Raven's SEO tools for a month. We have the budget for one $99-a-month toolkit - next month I'll be sampling Moz's offering.

So far I like the Site Auditor and competitor analysis functions, but I haven't looked at the link-building and link assessment sections in detail yet.

The dodgy name aside, this sounds like just my cup of tea.

"Schwa Fire is a digital publication that will marry language geekery with long-form journalism."

Worth a few shekels in their Kickstarter hat.
