Really really good article. Cookies are toast..
The concept described in the second half about users across devices is way smart. Cc +David Cohen this is future stuff to think about.

anyone know how to respond to reviews now? it seems really messed up. If you go to your google places listing page,, and log in, you see the old dashboard. 

if you then click on the listing you want, there is a link on the resulting page that says 'respond to reviews'. 

when i click on that it goes to the corresponding google+ page for that location but doesnt have any functionality to edit reviews?

Thanks +Scott Rowley. It definitely seems like a bug. I'll do that. It's weird to see the listings in the transition between the places and google+ platforms.

Good article
The Imaginary Separation Between Content Marketing & Link Building
How +Matt Gratt learned to stop worrying about labels and build the top of the funnel.
The choice of content marketing over link building has become a hot topic in marketing circles. Yet this choice is imaginary - you can accomplish both goals.

I am glad this is happening ( or happened).   Making and optimizing both felt redundant.

My clients are running around 38% not provided. Sticking more with landing page visit metrics now.
(Not Provided) increases by more than 10% in August

Just reviewing some of our sites over the last 30 days and we have seen a similar stat across the board - Not provided has increased significantly in August with 1 or 2 sites surpassing 75% for the first time.

Having a look at shows similar stats as well for a number of sites over the last few weeks but no one has really identified the root cause.

Not seen any major updates (beyond a Google+ app update in Aug) that provide any reasonable explanation for this. Has anybody else seen a similar trend? Help appreciated #SEO   #notprovided   #googlesearch

Just started seeing this report in Adwords today. You?

Looks like you can compare organic GWT data and Adwords data side by side.

You know that you can use AdWords reporting tools to see how often your ads are showing to potential customers, and which keywords are triggering those impressions. With the paid & organic report, you can also see how often pages from your website are showing in Google's free organic search ...

basic htaccess file help?

my current new wordpress site i created for a client doesnt seem to have an htaccess file.

can anyone help me with the basic file contents i would need to do the following:

1. set the canonical url to be
2. fix the 404 error that shows up if you try to add the www. subdomain to the domain name (right now only the url works not the subdomain versions
Aki Hietala's profile photo
You can create the htaccess file manually, but I think that the wordpress has good tools for changing the URL and fixing the 404 error, without touching the htaccess. Have a little look at the different plugins that are available and at the things that you can find already in the environment.
