Rob Gordon38,275Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business Owners.  SUPPLEMENTAL CIRCLE 3This is my third and final supplemental circle of the popular set of circles of the same name that I have published here since early in the history of Google+.  I have to retire this approach, because it has become circumvented by the new communities function which is a better tecnnology for this, but I promised a number of people I would include them in these circles, and I need to keep that promise.  This last supplemental circle is a grab bag of all different kinds of entrepreneurs - from influential industry leaders, to people running little struggling ventures, and everything in between.   If you want a little jolt of  of entrepreneurial energy then this circle would be a good place to start. There is no rhyme or reason to the selection - just people who caught my eye - there are some very smart birds in this one though so you may want to take a look.  If you really want to "entrepreneuralize" your stream go to our original set of shared circles and add those as you see fit. http://goo.gl/P0IrgUnfortunately, this method is simply no longer manageable or effective.  I am simply missing too many good people with this approach so with this last shared supplemental  this will no longer be maintained or updated, though I may continue to publish smaller, more specialized shared circles.   In a way, I am sad to see this go.  It is probably the most successful thing I have done on Google+ and I am rather proud of it.  I think it helped to make the entrepreneurs and small business owners on Google+ far more interconnected than they would have been otherwise, but all good things must come to an end. The good news is that these shared circles have been replaced with a community of the same name.  The "Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business Community" has more than 8,000 members and is growing like mad.  More significantly, people are not just "posting stuff" - they are actively engaging in discussions, meeting each other personally. coming up with ideas and addressing any number of important small business issues.   In ny humble opinion, this is the best business community on Google+.  It is already being discussed on other social networks - Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and blog posts - and we even got a mention in "Inc Magazine".  I believe that we in the small business community, even the most humble among us, could become far more powerful if we figure out ways to work together and use our massive brainpower to our mutual advantage.  We are going to continue to throw everything but the kitchen sink at this to make it happen.  If this is your thing, I hope you continue joining us.  This community can be found at this link: http://goo.gl/ejG9P  2013-02-11 22:57:081001616CC G+

I don't know if you've been following the Amazon vs. Hachette saga.  It's a bit melodramatic, with both sides claiming the high ground, when in reality both are in it largely for the money.  That said, I have been a direct beneficiary of Amazon's Kindle and Amazon's self-publishing system - opportunities that traditional publishers have never provided to me.  So with eyes wide open that Amazon is a FOR PROFIT business, I support Amazon in this fight.  What are your thoughts?

Google My Business is here!  It replaces Google+ local, which replaced Google Places, which replaced (I am not kidding) Google local. The "name team" at Google certainly likes to name, rename, continue to name, change the name, name it something else, keep us guessing, and find new names...  Whew!

Google Blog Search is Dead.  Alas.  But if you use the 'tbm' code, you can still access it.  Google is pretty sloppy about leaving the old tools with a nice back door.

More on the Amazon self-publishing industry.  Sure, this was funded and produced by Amazon but the author and her story are real. So which is better: traditional publishing or self-publishing?  Or perhaps both can co-exist?

Fighting Negative Reviews on Yelp. Rule #1 don't sue. Rule #2 don't make a crazy policy like fining customers for a negative review.  Rule #3 don't believe all the BS that Yelp says about reviews. If you play by Yelp's own rules, you will not do very well. To succeed on Yelp, you gotta go a little bit to the dark side.

AdWords Tips and Tricks. It's rare to find an article on AdWords that is more than a Google cheerleader, but here is a gem. I really like the emphasis that CTR is NOT the best metric: conversions are. And the idea of headline fatigue is also interesting.

Yelp reminds us how paranoid it is about review manipulation. But - on my own wish list - is that Yelp do something about that small, but obnoxious, minority on Yelp who seem to relish trashing small business after small business.  A filter against 100% negative whiners, please, Yelp?

Are we witnessing the slow death of Google+? It sure seems that way. We are past the initial euphoria, and with the death of authorship pictures, and strong indications from Google that they do not use it directly for search (except of course G+ local), it seems to be in a death spiral. What do you think?

How to Get Your Picture to Show on Google+. NOT.  Google has changed this in a very radical way: showing the picture ONLY for Google+ posts for people you 'circle.' Here is a very cynical, but possibly, accurate on why Google made this change. Nefarious?

What gets shared on Facebook, and why? That is the question. Some interesting factoids from this infographic - designed (of course) to be highly shareable and even viral.  The dog, my friend, does indeed chase its tail. http://bit.ly/1pMONOy

Apparently the end of your picture on Google results is coming.  So we are still stuck with the ten blue links on Google's search screen.

It's official. Facebook has nearly killed organic reach for brand pages. As a user, I am frustrated I never see updates from my favorite brands yet old Uncle Al who posts like a madman of his cat adventures... I see him all the time.  Could Facebook find a happy medium?
