Six Questions w/David Ostiguy | The Importance of Defending Your Reputation from Negative Yelp Reviews

Hello guys and gals...I have the very first of many interviews with a friend I met at a conference last year. I was very impressed by his knowledge of SEO.

So David Ostiguy is his name and he''s the first to go through my six question interview series. Please give him a round of applause for being the first under the gun with

Google, every once in awhile doesn't something different to their usual home page. Today they have this under the search field...

Unfortunately, as I write this, I am kinda upset that I missed the event that just happened yesterday. I missed the Android founder, Rich Miner here in Boston. Not cool man! Oh well, I know there will be others to

Roundups - And I Am Not Talking About Monsanto!

I'm thinking of doing "roundups." You know, those summaries that bloggers have been doing for years that gather all the good and interesting stuff from around the web on a particular topic?

[caption id="attachment_5956" align="aligncenter" width="498"] Google+ Ripples[/caption] Have you heard of "Google+ Ripples?" I hadn't either, until today, thanks to Neil Patel at QuickSprout.

Announcing: Plug 'n Ping

FYI---I just put together a short report that consists of two parts: Ping List Plugin List I call it "Plug 'n Ping" and it's a really great reference to have, especially if you want your web site to work for you. And who doesn't want that? It's NOT fancy. But it is meaty. And you can put both concepts to work in mere minutes (2-10 depending). The first part deals with a little-known and very-little-modded piece of the WordPress configuration---it's in settings and it's called

True Internet Marketing Gurus
