"You can reach out to other webmasters until your fingers grind your keyboard into a fine layer of plastic powder, but no one’s going to link to you unless your site offers something valuable to your audience beyond your product or service."

You can’t build good, relevant links to your website unless you have at least one linkable asset. In the old days of link building, you could spam directories and engage in every link scheme under the sun in order to increase your search engine visibility, even though you had absolutely nothing on your website link-worthy. …

Increasing your PPC ROI means upping your professional look, doing a little experimenting, and maybe not being #1. You might even have to break a few "rules."

Relevant pictures are really important for getting people to read your page. 
It’s easy to break up text with a few interesting pictures or images. But did you know that adding images correctly can help your marketing and SEO work?

Please don't spam SEL as Danny Sullivan and Editors of SEL already provide links to actual quality rater's documents. You've got to earn your own traffic and not try to hitch a ride on SEL's. Maybe try asking SEL to publish your article

Does anyone know how to format cells in Excel so that it does not remove the "+" before BMM keywords?

I keep pasting BMM keywords and it removes the "+"

Thanks.

Local Search  - 
 
Due to Google's recent changes to local search results, I went to the GMB forum seeking clarification on WTF is going on.  If others here (and our clients) do the same, will G notice the backlash on their own support forums?  It's worth a shot.  

Here's what I asked in a support post entitled "Where's my phone#? Street Address? Google+ Page? User Experience?"

Checking my business' ranking in local pack results.  I don't like what I see!

The local "7 Pack" is now three.  Thank God I made the new "cut line" for most keywords, but not all :(  That is going to cost me business so thanks a lot!  Will I now use AdWords to reach those looking for those services?  Don't bet on it, though I think you already have.

My business listing does NOT display my telephone number any longer!  FYI, the phone is how most locals contact other local merchants and service providers, like me.  Now I can only hope that prospective clients may click through to my website to find my phone number.  Or, they could just hop in their car and come over to my office except...

My listing only shows what street I'm on, but no address!  Are your users (and my prospective clients) supposed to go door to door, up and down the block looking for me?  

And what about my Google+ (Google My Business) Page?  Now, you can't get there from here!  What is up with that??  Is Google kicking my Google+ Page to the curb?  The page that Google not so long ago urged me to create (or created for me), post upon, encourage others to visit and add us to "Circles"...this has taken a lot of time over the past couple years.  Was it all for nothing?

As a user as well, this experience sucks!  This new look has caused a big pain in my neck and a great massage sounds wonderful.  So I Google "massage near me" and I have to scan the ads (many of which are located far away), a couple of organic listings, mostly from Yelp, (whom I am not a fan of), then finally arrive to the local pack only to be provided three alternatives.  No street address is given so I don't know if they are on the other side of town which would take too long to get to.  I could call for the closest cross street or their actual address, but there's no phone number.  I could go to their website and view page after page just trying to find out where they are.  With all the time this has taken, I don't have time for a massage anymore.  Fabulous! (I'm being sarcastic).

Google, is this is just a test of a really bad idea?  Are you saying that if I want relevant local search results I should resort to Bing?  Really?

That's why you don't put all your eggs into one basket. 
Google is, at the end of the day,  just 1 source of finding a business listing. You could perhaps focus more on local business directories - getting your website submitted into local business directories hence creating citations.

Technical SEO - what is it?

Ok troops... I was curious as to how everyone defines "technical" SEO... we had a lively discussion on it Friday via Hangout, which itself was on the coat tails of a Barry Adams post and Moz Whiteboard.

I am going to be writing about it more in the near future, so I figured I'd put it to the community for more perspective... Fire away! 

Here's a vid from last week's chat where we covered it with +Bill Slawski  and others

Hello Everyone, 

I am a SEO professional, maximum involvement in technical aspects but i am stuck at one point. Can anyone suggest what exactly i need to do if there are 2-3 domains pointing one directory (1 server file)? Do i need to submit all of them separately in Google Webmaster or any robots file modification is required, please suggest.

Thanks all of you in advance for your valuable suggestion
