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 22:57:081001616

Here's something bizarre in AdWords. You can target the Bronx, you can target the Upper East Side, you can target Queens. But apparently you can NOT target just "Manhattan." Google doesn't seem to understand that Manhattan is the #1 borough in NYC.  How weird is that?

I just have to thank Google for its incredibly sophisticated tracking and snooping of my online behavior.  See what it recommended for me in my recent news feed.  Yes, I do love Miley Cyrus.  Just not that much, Google!

The Hypocrisy of Links & Google. This saga goes on and on and on and on. It's an open secret that nearly everyone does some sort of "link building" yet Google basically claims any "link building" is illegal. Then people get "outed," Google gets embarrassed, and penalties are applied. You have to wonder how "thorough" Google's algorithm is, when very public "outings" are necessary... So much going on behind the surface here, it's like a Melrose Place episode.

Google strikes out against 'TopSEOs.' I personally never really participated in 'TopSEOs,' but have nothing against their service. That said, you have to wonder about Google's policy of FUD: Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt against the SEO community... that has become their hallmark of late. If TopSEOs were TopDoctors... would the penalty have been as drastic?

And we can create customers who love us - by 1) great products or services, 2) happy staff.  I just visited this new coffee shop in Fremont... and it was so wonderful... that I a) reviewed them on G+ and b) reviewed them on Yelp. Question: do you a) provide an amazing product or service? b) have a happy staff? c) do everything honestly possible to encourage positive reviews and buzz on the Internet?

Someday in the near future humans will lose the ability to read. The Web will all be pictures.  And grunts. And drones will deliver us stuff.  Part of marketing to this emerging non-literate culture is Slideshare. Pictures good. Must make pictures.  Words bad.  Reading hard.  Check out this informative post on Slideshare (Spoiler alert: reading IS required).

Here's a new competitive metrics tool.  Input your domain (or a competitor) and get some basic facts about traffic, keywords, referrers and all that. Do you think it's useful?  Or just fluff?

Being Bad in Link Building Might be Good. I've had this suspicion myself - there's too much of a good thing, and then there's too little.  But for some link-building tactics a little old fashioned link building is actually good.
