Is trying to work out if my complete lack of G+ activity is linked to the authorship markup not showing in the SERP's for this page http://www.salmat.com.au/products-services/search-marketing/

Then again maybe Google thinks I'm ugly ;)

My mug was showing for about 6 months but for whatever reason Google is no longer choosing to the include it with the page snippet.

My suspicion is that Google have worked out that cynical non-users of G+ like me don't deserve to get authorship markup displayed for highly commercial queries. Then again it just could be that I'm no oil painting ;)

The irony is that these tactics still probably work to rip-off unwary small business people.

My take on the fundamentals of SEO in 2012. Obviously it's not possible to capture everything in 600 words, but the post is designed to serve as an entree for beginners. http://www.dynamicbusiness.com.au/hot-tips/5-ways-to-improve-your-website-through-search-engine-optimisation-01032012.html

Not exactly a glowing endorsement of running uncapped deals on group buying sites

No "Brand" Signals = No long term rankings (IMHO)

I want one just, 3-4 times bigger and 10 times longer with either a chair lift or travelator back to the take off spot.
