Shortlinks: More Than Just Links To Other Stuff




It may not look like it, but this is a shortcut. Or at least it will be when it's finished. It's a shortcut to the owner's guest house. Halfway down the trail there is a bank of shared solar panels. There's also a storage shed for shared tools. It also doubles as a running trail. The houses are two miles apart. Both are on the sides of small mountains. You can see the other house from the porch of the other. The owner planned it this way when he bought the property. That was 3 years ago. The houses are  already done. If implemented correctly, the other things will fall in place. 
It's the same way with URL shortlink services. Planning a little will go a long way.

Functionality Not Enabled Message - SOLVED!

Team Email As A Strategy

Ubiquitous connectivity has created many opportunities. Especially when it involves collaboration. Teams are constantly being created to discover, develop, and deploy global solutions. Team members need to communicate internally and with external sources. Email is an integral part of most communication plans. Receiving email from BeerKegHauler69@yahoo.com can affect the way the whole team is viewed. Email addresses with the same domain name can help establish credibility. Addresses are easy to create and very inexpensive. Most email administrators can create an address in less than a minute. So what’s the best way to handle this new address, if you are the user?

Google Removes Authorship Images In SERP

Is Google Authorship a waste of time?

What Happened To Your Authorship Image?

If you're like most people, your wondering what happened to authorship. Why did Google remove the profile images? Is it a permanent change or will they add them back? Will this adversely affect your site in search results? What good is authorship without the image? Why did Google push authorship so hard if they weren't going to keep it? Did you waste a bunch of time working on something that's now defunct? 

Cool Your Jets

Don't jump to conclusions.  Do some reading. I've put together some links to articles about what's going on. I hope you find them helpful.

How Unpublishing Articles Got Me More Readers

So apparently when you turn a post into a draft, and then re-publish it again, it re-posts it to your stream as well. Bear in mind that happens ONLY IF you have the 'Google+" link enabled in your Blogger Dot Com account, which I do. That's not really a good thing for what I was trying to accomplish. But it could be a good thing for what actually happened. My goal was to unpublish around 188 articles on Surfin With Stan, and then move them one by one to their new home on Stan Bush Dot Net. I have a different plan for Surfin With Stan now and wanted to get most of those posts "off the grid" so to speak. I wanted that site to be clear of any of the old posts that won't be relevant once the switch is made. But that didn't happen.

What's So Great About Google Apps?

What's so great about Google Apps.
     I'm not going to waste your time by asking you to read my take on Google Plus. There are plenty of people posting about that. Google's Learn More should be your first start.  You're probably not here for that anyway. You want to know how to use it to do one of three things.
     1. How to connect to your family and friends.
     2. How to connect to your customers.
     3. How to get people to connect to you.

     I do talk about those kinds of things on this blog. But this isn't the page for that.  This is just a page to tell you what Google Plus is. And Isn't.
