Davis Baer - Badass Marketers & Founders (BAMF)

😡 Problem: You want to search for employees at a specific company, but unless you pay for LinkedIn Premium, you're limited to seeing only 3 people.

😎 Solution: Using Google, search "(companyname) site:linkedin.com". For example, a search for "bamf media site:linkedin.com" allows me to see all 23 employees at BAMF in the search results.

👉 You can also add any term after the (companyname) to filter for specific positions, like CEO, Founder, President, etc.

The Man Who Spent $100K To Remove A Lie From Google : NPR
A turkish kid tries to pull a scam on a financial advisor in the US. The financial advisor catches on and reports him to the police. Turkish kid and his family are arrested and deported back to Turkey. Turkish kid sets up a website defaming the financial advisor. Google refuses to do anything about it even after a court order. Eventually, the guy has to spend $100,000 in overseas courts to have European privacy laws apply and the page is eventually taken down. Turkish kid is still an asshole.

Why was the Plus Sign (+) removed as a Search Operator? - Google Product Forums
Good tip on using Verbatim Search
"The + operator was retired when Google+ was launched, because + was needed as a searchable character rather than an operator.

Have you tried the Verbatim search tool? It's much more precise and predictable than other methods. You can avoid all Google's annoying interferences with your search terms, such as spelling "corrections", alternative spellings, personalization, synonyms, word stemming, etc. Just be aware that, occasionally, Google's interference might just be helpful: I use Verbatim search as default, but occasionally switch to standard search if I'm not sure of a spelling, want to pick up both US and UK spellings, need synonyms, etc.

You can default your searches to verbatim by bookmarking https://www.google.com/webhp?tbs=li:1 for searching. All searches from that homepage and subsequent results pages will default to Verbatim."

Bing: We Added A Border To Our Ads To Make Them More Visible
Not really "anti-something", but this link as well as the post it links to in the first sentence (http://searchengineland.com/the-great-fade-out-how-the-search-engines-stack-up-on-ad-backgrounds-in-serps-168922), discuss the topic of search engines making their paid ads invisible such that they essentially blend into the organic results.

How Google Plans to Find the UnGoogleable
The future of search... providing you with answers to things you never thought of Googling, such as the current length of the grocery store line... or things you still haven't thought of asking for, such as when you're arriving at the airport and need to know how to get to your gate.

Any SEO could damage your site as a spam site | ZDNet
"Google may shift the rankings of your site, in what appears to be a random manner, before Google settles on a target rank.

Let's say that you're building links to a site, and the site moves up in the rankings. You would assume that the link building has had a positive effect..."

"If you try to improve the quality of your site, that can work against you. For example, HubPages tried to restore its original rankings in the wake of Panda by improving the quality of the content by deleting pages, and by trying to improve grammar and even spelling. Nothing worked until it republished with subdomains, thus starting with a clean sheet."

Make sure to read the comments below for more insight.

Seth's Blog: We can handle information density
This is about the 3 or 4th call I've heard recently about Google's pushing ads over real content onto the front page "above the fold"

Admittedly, Seth is saying it quite politely. He's focusing more on harping about putting more results on the front page. But still...

search-engine = This is also the 2nd or 3rd time I've heard DuckDuckGo mentioned as a viable search engine alternative.

How to Use Google Search More Effectively [INFOGRAPHIC]
~college = searches similar words (i.e. university, higher education)
*college = replaces itself with common terms (these first two seem very similar to each other, but it seems the second is "popular" vs "related")
2008..2010 = shows results form within designated range
filetype:pdf = shows only PDF files
intitle:velocity = only shows results with that word in the title
define:apiary = gets quick word definitions
54 pounds in kilograms = forget the antiquated "convert x to y", instead phrase it this way.

apple, history-computer = "Phone freaking was an early passion for Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Before they revolutionized the personal computer, the pair built “blue boxes” that allowed users to make long distance calls free of charge. “If we hadn’t made blue boxes, there would have been no Apple,” Jobs said in an interview."

Google doesn’t use the keywords meta tag in web search
From Matt Cutts: Google does not use meta keywords AT ALL in rankings. However, if you have a good "meta description" they will "sometimes" use that or a part of that.

Using advanced search - Gmail Help
Read below for details:
On 2/5/2011, my Delicious plugin for Firefox stopped working, but not in an obvious way. It seemed to bookmark things for me, but whenever I went to the Delicious site, the bookmarks would not be there.

Anything after a certain (unknown) time on 2/5/2011, quite simply was not "pushed" to the Delicious "cloud"--- however, the plugin seemed to save the bookmark locally.

It took me a while to realize what was happening and when I did, I started bookmarking things with a bookmarklet in the "Bookmarks" toolbar.

However, I knew that at some point, knew I'd have to go back and find the bookmarks which were saved locally, but were never pushed to the cloud and re-bookmark them using the bookmarklet.

Well, today is the day I decided to do that and this is the FIRST bookmark.I have also marked the last bookmark with some text in the NOTES field.
