I'm getting ready for the Fungus Fair in Santa Cruz, CA. If you like mushrooms and want to try some wild mushroom, this is your event. Jan 10-12. They also have a huge display of hundreds of different mushrooms, even the nasty ones. It's very educational and a nice way to spend a few hours in Santa Cruz. You can even buy mushroom kits to grow your own. #gardeninginspiration   #mushrooms   #santacruz   #googlelocalpro

Residents in the small town of Semmes, Alabama were surprised when one of the acts in the annual Christmas parade was a group of black drag queens known as "The Prancing Elite."

The captain of the troupe, Kentrell Collins, said he believed the offer had been made in good faith, and that the representative for the Friends of Semmes to whom he spoke knew who she was hiring.

"I said we're all over 21 and we're guys. She was so excited. She was like I didn't know they had any groups like that in Mobile," Collins told Fox 10 News.

The reaction of local residents to the troupe's performance was overwhelmingly negative.

Residents in the small town of Semmes, Alabama were surprised when one of the acts in the annual Christmas parade was a group of black drag queens known as "The Prancing Elite."

The captain of the troupe, Kentrell Collins, said he believed the offer had been made in good faith, and that the representative for the Friends of Semmes to whom he spoke knew who she was hiring.

"I said we're all over 21 and we're guys. She was so excited. She was like I didn't know they had any groups like that in Mobile," Collins told Fox 10 News.

The reaction of local residents to the troupe's performance was overwhelmingly negative.

"I was outraged and appalled. I never expect anything like this at the Semmes Christmas parade," Claudia Davis told Fox 10 News. "If they were gonna put this kind of activity in the parade, they should have notified the people of Semmes so that we had a choice whether we wanted out children to attend and see something like that."

The members of "The Prancing Elite" sympathized with those who were offended.

"We do want to apologize if we offended anybody who did not know who we were before today, but still at the end of the day, we only just came to dance and we did get invited," troupe leader Collins said.

Since news of the incident at the parade hit social media last night, the group has booked events for New Year's Eve and Mardi Gras.

Meanwhile, according to Claudia Davis the Friends of Semmes have been removed as organizers of the Christmas parade. The city council will organize the event next year.___

If you're looking to build your business, then work to build your authority and your associations with others on the same level. This is a great post +Christine Holst  and worthy of sharing. #authorship   #pagerank   #googlelocalpro   #attorneyseo  

Google Still Working on Promoting Subject-Specific Authorities in Search

So if you are an authority in a space, if you search for podcasts, you want to return something like Twit.tv. So we are trying to figure out who are the authorities in the individual little topic areas and then how do we make sure those sites show up, for medical, or shopping or travel or any one of thousands of other topics. That is to be done algorithmically not by humans … So page rank is sort of this global importance. The New York times is important so if they link to you then you must also be important. But you can start to drill down in individual topic areas and say okay if Jeff Jarvis (Prof of journalism) links to me he is an expert in journalism and so therefore I might be a little bit more relevant in the journalistic field. We’re trying to measure those kinds of topics. Because you know you really want to listen to the experts in each area if you can.

This excerpt from +Matt Cutts isn't surprising but it should be noted that there's less mention of the mechanics, or specifics of 'authorship' and more about identifying authors by topic or subject matter experts. 

It's simply more evidence that SME will be a mashup of numerous signals but that one of the larger ones will likely be the Knowledge Graph. (http://bit.ly/1aI27uq)

In addition, very little has been discussed about how Google might use the link graph from an identified expert in a specific field to find others in that field. It's not that this isn't in many posts on the topic (including my own), but Matt's mention here should make people think about it again.

We all love it when we get these collections of handy tips for Google+ because we can reference them later. You can find it fairly easily once you share it on your own timeline. I also post it to my own channel for easy referencing.   #googletips   #googleplustips   #googleposts   #googlelocalpro  

How to Post on Google+: a list of the BEST guides
Google Plus is not Twitter, and it's not Facebook. That means that what works on those platforms doesn't work here. I hear lots of people complain that their G+ posts get no engagement. Sometimes they are simply new and have not established a loyal following of active users. But most of the time they are using G+ like it's either Twitter or Facebook (or even Pinterest).

Posting for engagement is one of the main skills to master on G+, and here are the best articles I've found that outline how to do it. 

Wouldn't just one of these articles be enough? No. We learn through repetition. And each author brings a different slant to the message. You may need to hear the same advice expressed in a particular turn of phrase for it to click in your mind. So I encourage you to read them all!

Besides, not all of these offer exactly the same advice. Some differ in terms of recommended posting length whether or not you should shorten links. But you will see repeating themes that every single article is adamant about: offer value without click through, follow up on comments, use images, use bold and italics in your formatting, etc.

Most of these posts delve at least somewhat into the why behind the tips, but if you want more technical, detailed explanations, be sure to read the ADVANCED G+ POSTING section at the bottom.

Ultimate Google Plus Posting Guide
I love the annotated image of how to format G+ posts for engagement. Maybe you wouldn't use all of those options for every post, but it's a great guide to help you consider possible parts of a G+ post that begs to be +1ed, shared, and commented on.
My favorite quote: If there is content that you’d like to share with your own followers and also with another community, wait a day or two to spread out your sharing and create a new message tailored for each audience and community that you share with.

Want to Increase Social Signals?
The image comparing a brilliant G+ post versus a crappy G+ post really drives home how to increase social signals on G+. But read the commentary for more details about exactly how to win with G+ posts.
My favorite quote: . . . how much time did you spend writing that article? Don’t you think it’s worth spending a couple of minutes to make a quality post that has the chance of stimulating the social signals necessary to put it before more peoples eyes?

Link Litter Makes Me Wanna Puke a Little
You might be unaware that you are posting link litter on G+. If you're getting no engagement, this could be why. Learn what link litter is and how to write quality posts.
My favorite quote: Do you really think people are gonna waste their time reading it if you don’t even think it’s worth taking 1 minute to summarize it for them?

6 Ways a Formatted Google+ Post Will Increase Engagement and Interest
Mike explains what you should include in a G+ post but goes on to explain the why behind it so that you understand the strategy.
My favorite quote: The Title of your Google+ share and the commentary you add are just as significant as the rest of your article. It's been said that your Title should be compelling enough to get people to read your second sentence, and then your second sentence should be compelling enough to get people to read the next, and so on through your entire post. Your Google+ share works the same way.

Why Keep Promoting the Fake Mystery of Online Content?
This post here on G+ really opened my eyes to the generous type of posting that will engender relationships. Don't make the reader click to get value. Provide all the value needed right there in the G+ post. This is a totally different way of looking at posting on social media. And I like it!
My favorite quote: Is there some law under which a person must click the link to read the grand secret of the article? Why don't sharers just cheat and reveal the secret upfront, so that people don't have to click at all?

What do you think? Is Google protecting you? Are you signing the petition?

Doesn’t the stuff you keep online deserve the same protection as the stuff you keep offline? Under a law called ECPA, government agencies in the U.S. can see what you’ve written and stored online without a warrant. Sign this petition to the White House and tell the government to get a warrant!

Sometimes us tech nerds forget that we're on the tip of the iceberg with regard to social media. The rest of the berg has yet to surface, but when it does it will have a big influence. Maybe social media didn't do much for IBM, but I look at all the ads on Facebook that I know are getting sales, and I look at all the pics on Pinterest that I know are influencing sales. Word-of-mouth is one of the biggest influencers of buying decisions, and that's got social media written all over it.

Today, Google introduced Reviews in Google Places for Business. Now you can learn what your customers are saying about your business on Google and across the web all in one place, minus Yelp! reviews. If you have a verified business listing, you will now see your customer ratings and reviews in the easy-to-use review inbox. 

And according to Google "And if you feel your business deserves more good reviews, or if you are missing feedback on your work, all you need to do now is to encourage your customers to post reviews on your Google+ page." You may now encourage customer reviews. That's huge!

Now, if you haven't been migrated to the new Places dashboard, Google says to be patient because it's coming and is expected to be done by year's end. (That's not in the official release, but trust me.)

A little more info from Google: 

Starting on November 25th, we are gradually rolling out Reviews in the new Google Places for Business dashboard, where you’ll be able to view what customers are saying about your business on Google and across the web, in one place. You can read more about this feature on our help center.

To get started, go to the dashboard you use to manage your business information, click the listing you’d like to manage, and choose Reviews from the left hand navigation menu.  

You’ll see a Reviews inbox listing any reviews Google users have left for your business as well as snippets of reviews written about your business on other websites. The Reviews analytics tab includes information detailing where users have evaluated your business, and the average score of reviews of your business.

You can also respond to Google reviews in the text box that appears beneath the full review. If you do not see the ability to respond to Google reviews, make sure the listing is upgraded to a Google+ page. If you don’t have the ability to upgrade, you can respond to the review from the business page itself.
