Ducks, Penguins and Long Form Content

October 2, 2015

A good day for ducks here. It has rained almost all week, the Carolinas have had some flooding, I don’t think we’ll have to worry much about flooding here. It’s been a busy week here as we wrap up publishing our 6th book, this one non-fiction. I love writing and hate… well maybe that is […]

September 25, 2015

Happy Friday. A great article about local SEO – http://searchengineland.com/local-search-ranking-factors-2015-231608 Especially important since the change from the six pack to three pack.

Happy Friday to you. Been a busy week here and hopefully your week has been busy too! The European Commission doesn’t like Google very much… or maybe they just want to make some bank with fines they can levy on G. They are now complaining about the shopping results within Google.
