Onto the last Google news: We wrote an article this week about why Google Places is important for SEO. On the topic of Places, Facebook killed Facebook Check-ins this week (quietly, though) and last but not least we talk about over-saturation of the “deals” and reviews marketplace for small business owners. With a flood of choices (now that Angie’s List is offering premiere profiles to businesses) such as LivingSocial, Groupon, Yelp, and so on… are small business owners lashing out and experiencing “Deal fatigue”?
Lastly Dwight talks about the recent NYT article on Cornell University researches creating a new algorithm to “out fake reviews” that are paid for, well, bullshit reviews.
Join Dwight Zahringer and Brian Ambrozy as they wax poetic about this week’s SEO, social media, and weather news.
