Here is the best Hummingbird Joke I’ve got:

Why does a hummingbird Hum?

Why Does a Humming Bird Hum?

Answer: Because it doesn’t know the words! Dumb bird.

Hey it’ Google’s Birthday!!

The humming bird is set to make the search faster. Along with other updates google is 100% happy. And why not, it’s their birthday. So blow out the lights and make a wish.

I updated my Google+ App on my iPhone and found this..

Google Plus Checkin for iPhones

Google Plus Check-Ins

I have never know google to not use information they collect to better their search results. I foresee Google+ checkins becoming a major part of Google’s Local Search algorithm. The Google+ Check In will add the user data that google is craving to make search results relevant to users. Google places has come a long way. At one time Google scrapped the internet trying to create it’s local directory. They abused Yelp trying to add in reviews. They indexed foursquare to make sure the results were relevant. Now they have their own system to do all this themselves. From reviews to location data, Google+ answers the local directory call.

Can Google+ capture the foodies?  As for the foodies, I am not sure, but I do believe Google has the means and drive to eventually beat down Yelp and Foursquare. While Yelp will have a long life and will still hold on to much of it’s elite foodie following, the annoyance and frustration from both businesses and the non-elite users will erode Yelp’s base. But what do I know.. I am just a pest control guy.

What is SEO? SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION.

How often does it die?

Who wants SEO to die? Google. Why? If we stop grabbing the free candy then maybe we will buy the search ads.

Pest Control Guy = Professional Killer

I have the solution. Trust me on this… I kill things for a living. I can help kill SEO. The problem is that most don’t understand the solution… If they want SEO to die then we need to kill the Search Engine.

Search Engine Optimization… So long as there is a search engine that ranks websites based on an algorithm then there will be those that optimize their sites to meet or beat the algorithm and rank their websites in search results.

You play too dirty… You play too clean… You play too much?

Moderation in all things is a great motto, but when you set out to build a boat you want it to float. Is there such a thing as building a boat too well? So google wants relevant content to win. They make measurements. People figure out these measurements. SEO’s adjust. The problem here with over optimization is that what Google has deemed okay in the past could now potentially be over optimized??? Is it really going to help to be “under optimized”?

So many business owners are just now coming to realize that ranking in the search engine’s isn’t a fluke. As these new business owners catch on and get a clue they will begin where so many have begun in the past, and now those tactics may hurt you?

I have long believed that Google would penalize any site with a perfect score. As the algorithm is secret, in order to score a perfect score the site owner would have to be cheating. There comes a point when people just need to stop focusing on what google is doing to tweak their algo. It’s a market of ups and downs. You invest one week in links to find their value gone the next. And then the value picks back up. You are playing a market. If you like the game play it. I believe your best bet is play by the rules that google sets and by the spirit of their law. They are pretty honest in what they tell you they want. Really the whole mess of things is pretty gray. Sadly, if Google judgement day hits, they are most likely going to quietly rule and behead you and the judge and jury remain behind hidden doors.

I have received a new spam letter from Paul Schmitt with Article Stars. “Below are the two best SEO WordPress Plugins out there for your SEO needs.” … and something about targeted keywords, and Google auto pilot plug-in. And very sneaky… using the “Schmitt” name to get that mental name association with google. FYI, Mr. Schmitt, you are messing with the pest control guy… and you sir bug me.

Grandma always says… “If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.”

Make it a great weekend!

You know perhaps I have too much time on my hands and that is why I am actually reading these emails… Here is the pest report of the day.

Subject: Twelve Minutes

Hi, I was hoping you would give me just twelve minutes of your time to talk to you about your website. I am showing businesses like yours how they stack up against their competition, with a no obligation in depth analysis of their site.

I pride myself in understanding how search engines work, and can break it down to a simple science for you. If you give me an opportunity, I can show you how your site is currently stacking up against your competition and how you could be on top _ getting all the traffic your business deserves.

I am doing this at no cost. If by the end of twelve minutes you do not want my help, at least I will know you are making an educated decision and will remember my name when you are ready.

Please let me know the best way to reach you and any comments you want me to consider before I do my research.

I look forward to earning your business,

Kathy Lanten

Best Rank SEO | Outreach Department | San Diego, CA 92109

If you never want to hear from me again, just reply with REMOVE in the subject.

Twelve minutes? Well Kathy Lanten from Best Rank SEO, your 12 minutes is up, since you spammed this SEO crap to several of my websites. And LIES! ALL LIES!… As if you would only take 12 minutes of my time if you had me on the phone. Perhaps I am just that rude, to give you 12 minutes and hang up when you hit the 12 minute mark.

Consider this, if your SEO is anything like your email then you will be wasting my time.

 

How much plus 1 could a Google plus plus,

If Google could plus 1 Google plus?

So Google launches Google plus, and they just launched Google +1 earlier this year. So lets clarify this first. Google +1 is a search related function showing your friend’s recommendations next to search results. Google Plus is their new social media platform similar to Facebook and Twitter. Google Plus seems to have integrated +1 into their social scheme. However, items in Google Plus that receive a +1 do not show over into Google search results. Further, Google Plus is not showing in Google search results and is not searchable…. Why would a search engine take out the search function?

My Google Plus Post of this debauchery that is not* indexed by Google.

*So as of yesterday 7/14/2010 google began indexing and showing google+ in the search results.

I find it interesting that the Google +1 in Google Plus is only a +1 on the Post in Google Plus. A +1 in Google Plus does not show as a public +1 in Google search results for a link shared in Google Plus. I wonder how much weight a google +1 for a google plus link post will carry. #SEO
+5 by Mike Ramsey, Roy Reyer, Chris Apple and 2 others
2 shares – Thomas Ballantyne and Bill Hartzer
Kristi Davis's profile photo Kristi Davis – I didn’t even bother reading those sentences, they are confusing. :) I do find it interesting that this notified me that you shared a post with me. Even though you made it public. That was slightly odd.
Elmer Boutin's profile photo Elmer Boutin – I’m willing to bet that if you +1 a post in G+ it will carry at least a little weight as a “vote” for that site, much the same way a tweet or retweet does.
Steve Bitter's profile photo Steve Bitter – Yeah, I am in the same boat as Kristi. Like dude, you’re sitting like 5 feet from me. Just tell me in person!
Rick Galan's profile photo Rick Galan – I’m with you Kristi, on both counts. :)
Jon Henshaw's profile photo Jon Henshaw – Is this a trick?
Mike Ramsey's profile photo Mike Ramsey – That was so awesome to read. ;-) yeah. how did you get it to notify everyone when it was public, unless it was a public comment with a few people added specifically.
Thomas Ballantyne's profile photo Thomas Ballantyne – +Jon HenshawIn a way… I was testing the add notification for my entire SEO circle… Which means if you are reading this and didn’t get notified that you need to up your SEO skills. =)
Kristi Davis's profile photo Kristi Davis – So it was public and you selected SEO circles? Why would we all get a notification though?
Brian Farr's profile photo Brian Farr – Wait a minute, I didn’t get notified! Should I be offended? Too late to answer that now! =/
Thomas Ballantyne's profile photoThomas Ballantyne – +Elmer Boutin I am also guessing that they will be using the +1 as a way of measuring engagement, social influence, and authority.
Thomas Ballantyne's profile photo Thomas Ballantyne – +Rick Galan Don’t worry… I only plan on sticking around and annoying others long enough to figure out the Google Plus gaming system. What can I say.. “Pest Control Guy“.
Mike Ramsey's profile photo Mike Ramsey – did you see i got hit up yesterday from a company that sells +1′s? That didnt take long.
Ian Lurie's profile photoIan Lurie – Sweet! What’re they charging? Kidding.
Thomas Ballantyne's profile photo Thomas Ballantyne – +Mike Ramsey That’s awesome. Didn’t take long. And I’ve got a couple of spam followers here on Google+ already!
Becky Jutzi's profile photo Becky Jutzi – I also believe this will be a RT kind of sorting. Google needs that info now that Twitter dumped them. And they’ll weight brands/influencers before the rest of us. Not every vote counts… the same way anyway.
Mike Ramsey's profile photo Mike Ramsey – I think the going rate is about .50 I bet that will decrease :-)

Kristine Schachinger's profile photo

Kristine Schachinger – I think my head is spinning .. :) and I am sure there are shops already set up somewhere.. I mean there are not 10 million SEOs on G+ *wink (PS interesting points Tom)

Christina Peterson's profile photo

Christina Peterson – Hey Thomas–in here, is it #SEO or +SEO? Just wondering…

Chris Lang's profile photo

Chris Lang- The reason as I see it as of this second, G+ is on a https link, they are not being indexed by Google search. You can tell is something is in the G index by searching the URL, here’s one from your posts:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102285857774621984725/posts/GH3b4JtvQaR

Set to public too. Returns a not found in Google search.
So my guess is at some point +1s will show in Google search, but not now since the permalink is not being indexed. Odd that huh?

Thomas Ballantyne's profile photoThomas Ballantyne – +Becky Jutzi … Break ups are always nasty.

Dr. Pete Meyers's profile photo Dr. Pete Meyers – How much wood would a +1 plus if a +1 could plus wood? ….What?

Nick Roshon's profile photo Nick Roshon – I had to read that a few times before I understood it. But yeah, more evidence Google+ is still a work-in-progress…

Chris Apple's profile photo Chris Apple – Say that three times fast…go!
Dr. Pete Meyers's profile photo Dr. Pete Meyers – Seriously, I know what you mean. I get why the +1′s in G+ don’t count, since they’re a lot easier to accumulate, but using the “+” terminology everywhere is confusing at bes Even for non-SEOs, it’s a bit strange – if you +1 a link in G+, wouldn’t you also probably +1 it in search? The button looks the same. I think the average person is going to get confused fast. I like G+ so far, but +1 in general needs some work.
Kristi Hines's profile photo Kristi Hines – I thought the more +1′s and comments a Google+ post gets, the higher it will be in a follower’s stream. Kind of like the Facebook EdgeRank thing.
Reuben Yau's profile photo Reuben Yau – It’s probably “closed” this way as part of the limited field test. I’m guessing they’ll eventually open it up and allow Google Plus +1s to count as signals in web search.
Michelle McManus's profile photo Michelle McManus- I got it after reading it a couple times and it is a very intriguing question. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out, especially where business is concerned.
Thomas Ballantyne's profile photo Thomas Ballantyne – +Michelle McManusSorry.. not trying to be difficult, but I want to blame Google for their insertion of contending names in an effort to be cryptic. …I guess they do have an image to maintain. Oh the Great OZ!
Michelle McManus's profile photo Michelle McManus – Oh, I enjoyed the post! I love that crazy talk.
