  • Two Local Voice Search Improvements In Latest Google Glass Update
    Two search-related improvements made their way into the latest Google Glass software update.

She also talked about Google’s recent announcement that the mobile user experience is [...]

    Facebook has started rolling out Graph Search to all US English users, a move that comes about seven months after the product first launched to a small number of users in mid-January.

  • Confessions Of A $100/Month SEO Client: Part II
    Last month’s post on the realities of low-cost SEO for small businesses seemed to hit a nerve and got some great responses.
