Did you know that Apple has sold over 350 MILLION iPads, iPhones, and iPods? Did you know that NONE OF THEM see FLASH? I hope your answer is: “Yes, I know that, Chris!” Next question: “Are you using Flash at your website or blog?” If you are, 350+ MILLION people can’t see it and most likely getting this ugly message that tells them to download it – but they actually can’t download anything that fixes the problem. It can’t be fixed.
There is a lot of chatter about big brands having some type of “advantage” when it comes to search engine rankings at Google.

Google has a lot of free Internet apps and tools. Certainly, one of my favorites is GMAIL. Another one of my favorites is Google Currents, and I think you’ll like it too. Google Currents is an app you can download for your iPad/iPhone or Android device. It gives you instant access to dozens of magazines for free – yes FREE!
Chris, I notice some of my competition showing up listed at Google and there is a picture next to their listing on the search engine results page. How did they do this? If a picture shows up it sure gets your attention fast and probably increases click-though! I see it regularly with your rankings at Google when I search “marketing to brides.”
If you use GMAIL (http://www.gmail.com) and a Mac you’ll find MailTab for GMAIL helps you get to your email box faster and more efficiently.

Did you know you can “pin” a post on your Facebook business page so that it always appears at the TOP of your timeline? Yes, you can. This is a new feature of the Facebook Timeline format. It’s simple to do and here’s how you do it.
A sitemap is a file on your hosting server that lists all the pages at your website or blog. It is, in effect, a detailed “map” for search engine crawlers to find, see, and then follow as they crawl the pages at your site.
Pinterest has taken the Internet by storm with millions of people “pinning” everything from pictures of their pets to their favorite recipes. What I find interesting and equally important is that Pinterest “boards” are now showing up in the Google search engine results pages.
