Make 2014 A Year Of Living Awesomely Through Vision Boards

Happy New Year 2014

A brand New Year is upon us! At the beginning of each year I like to write down my goals and start a vision board. Whether you want to loose weight, make more money, travel or find love. You are more likely to accomplish your goals and stay focused if you put those ideas out in front of you where you can see them on a daily basis.


Vision Board


What do you want to accomplish this year? Being that January is half way over, it's never too late to start setting goals. Whatever you decide to do, make 2014 a year of living awesomely!

What Does the Fox Say?

As 2013 comes to a close I thought we should all pause and take a moment to reflect on the ridiculously weird, funny and rad stuff the internet has brought us this year.

One day a few months ago my 13 year old daughter sent me one of the strangest music videos I have ever seen. I wasn't sure if this was real or some sort of joke....


Regardless, I am still unsure... What does the fox say?

Is it:


Or?


When pondering this question in a (very) silly email thread with Chris Beckley earlier today, he informed me that it's probably more like:


Ohhhhh!!!!

Thank you Internet....

Google Strikes Again...

Links, Links, Links....

Here are some recent blog posts on links you MUST read from Web Pro News

Google Admits Link Mistake, Probably Won’t Help Webmaster Link Hysteria

"But there are bigger problems still with people not linking. For one, credit is often not going to be given when due. Traffic to an original source is not going to happen. Readers are going to be deprived of additional, helpful and contextual information.

From Google’s perspective, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for sites not to link to one another appropriately, because as far as we know, PageRank still carries weight in Google’s organic rankings. That said, Google does appear to be doing everything it possibly can to not have to point users to other websites.

There have been numerous reports of Google increasingly showing more of its own stuff and less organic results on more and more SERPs. Hell, I even see Google displaying a Google+ link for an article I’ve written rather than the article page itself on SERPs. You know, I wrote an article, then shared it on Google+, and Google decides to show the Google+ link rather than the real link. This happens fairly often, actually."

Interesting Google Case Study

Although I would never advocate black hat tactics, this is an interesting case study that shows some pretty interesting things about how Google still operates, despite what they say publicly. In this article "How Black Hats Are Still Gaming Google for Competitive Keywords – Case Study", some black hats create thousands of links to a brand new domain in a very short period of time with no content or functioning interface and still rank very highly for super tough keywords like "car insurance" in the UK. Is it me, or does this go against everything Google publicly says about backlinks and ranking?
