How Safe Are Password Managers?

This video is very funny and makes an important point.


Based on all the past problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using an Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing. No one has your passwords except you. We can not see or retrieve them because they are stored in a secure military 256k encrypted vault in the cloud.

Bill Cosby Found Guilty On 3 Counts Of Aggravated Incident Assault


The FTC needs to Regulate Google and stop Unfair Google Censorship

I keep writing and promoting articles about Google's unfair censorship and why you should complain about Google to the Federal Trade Commission. The European Union is doing a better job of punishing Google for their evil behavior and is forcing Google to make improvements regarding several different issues and privacy concerns.
Google brings this all upon themselves and the Google CEO does nothing to help solve the problem of unfair Google censorship. I have never heard or read about him discussing this topic. In general Google likes to pretend this problem does not exist. 
The problem is growing and becoming worse, Google will unfairly censor articles exposing their evil methods to unfairly censor people and deny some people's freedom of speech. This Google behavior has always seemed odd to me, because Google does not want China to censor Google search results, yet Google thinks it is okay to unfairly censor innocent people for no reason. The fact is Google is the biggest censor of content in the world, bigger than China in censorship. I thought America was based on freedom of speech.
Most of the complaints are about smaller businesses that Google continues to treat unfairly, however if the article is negative about Google or it's CEO, Google will even unfairly censor the New York Times. 

So when you use Google you should ask yourself, what is Google not showing me and why?

As I continue to research this topic and by studying specific examples of Google unfairly censoring people my conclusion is that Google definitely needs new government regulations to control Google from treating businesses and people unfairly. The big problem for Google is that I am not alone, many Internet experts agree with me and the European Union agrees with me. So even though Google may try to hide articles like this from the general public and suppress people's freedom of speech the word is leaking out and spreading and Google will not be able to stop the growing numbers of people recognizing and complaining about Google and their unfair censorship of people and content.


Why has Google has been slow to index this article?

SEO Link Building Service

SEO Link Building Service and Strategies
We receive thousands of phone calls, emails, link building questions and listing requests every year about SEO and link building techniques. Eighty percent or more of the people contacting us have terribly wrong ideas about what works and what is important for outstanding results in the major search engines. Below are details, samples, and history of people contacting us with their requirements. Hopefully, you will find useful SEO information that will help your company grow and increase your profits.

Many people phone our company saying, "I need low cost SEO, low quality backlinks, and tons of cheap links."

I respond, "Why?".... They say, "I want to out rank my competitors."
They think it is a pure numbers game, all links are equal and you get more and you win.  This is the wrong link building strategy, and these "cheap low quality techniques" will cause your website to be penalized by Google.

These people want fast outstanding results; they want to be #1 for competitive keyword phrases in 1-5 months.  Most people still do not understand that Google has penalized almost all of these cheap, crappy links and many people still do not even realize to vary their anchor text.  So the fastest way to be penalized by Google is to put up 1000+ low quality links on crappy websites and low quality Directories. 
Important Note: "If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site." - Matt Cutts of Google

Then use the exact same anchor text for all these poor quality backlinks. People who do this might as well just email Google and say "please penalize my site, I am a dumb-ass and I deserve to be penalized."

You need and want to be on Top Quality Sites and Directories.

SEO Process Overview

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
We recommend for our clients to use both Google paid Adwords and natural SEO methodologies to increase web site traffic and improve the quality of traffic you receive.

It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Ranking Fluctuations: What to Expect and How to React

This video below provides excellent information from Rand who sees enormous amounts of SEO data and ranking results.

If you see a more serious change in your rankings e.g. going from page 1 to page 5 in 1-day or your domain name is completely removed from Google than you have a serious Google penalty and should contact a SEO expert for help and advice.
Penalties from Google can be from an algorithmic automated software filter that may even check different data bases that Google maintains about links and content. E.g. a duplicate content penalty, or the Google penalty might be a manual penalty given by a real human being (aka the Google SPAM Police). A manual penalty which generally requires writing to Google to understand what the penalty is and how you can fix it. You can contact Google from your "Google Search Console" via https://www.google.com/webmasters/

Google may also send a message regarding your website. There are no "happy" messages that come from Google. Just a message about why Google penalized your website.

List of Directory Submission Sites That Google Likes

By Tom Forrest
List of Directory Submission Sites.
List of directories that Google likes and that follow Google Guidelines.

Google has cracked down on web directories that violate Google guidelines.  You should not place your website on any free and low quality directories or websites, you need fewer directory listings with better quality in order to be successful with Google and Bing. Please read the following new article about effective SEO Link Building to learn more.

So I decided I should give people a list of Internet directories that Google thinks are valid and that if you obtained a listing from these directories it would help you with direct traffic generation and also as a "good" backlink as far as Google is concerned. The Directories below are valuable worldwide and businesses from all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.

2.     http://www.Clasione.com
3.     http://vlib.org

12.   http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus
13.   http://www.SearchPure.org
14.   http://www.AliveDirectory.com


Please see comments below from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
I see many articles that give incorrect SEO information and promote "free directory sites" (low quality), and it is important to study what Google has previously stated. Please understand that Google has penalized many sites for not following the Google guidelines.

When considering submitting to a directory, I’d ask questions like:
- Does the directory reject urls?
If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site.
- What is the quality of urls in the directory?
Suppose a site rejects 25% of submissions, but the urls that are accepted/listed are still quite low-quality or spammy. That doesn’t speak well to the quality of the directory.
- If there is a fee, what’s the purpose of the fee?
For a high-quality directory, the fee is primarily for the time/effort for someone to do a genuine evaluation of a url.

Backpage.com seized by feds over sex trafficking ads

I think the USA should have the same laws as Amsterdam, Netherlands does.
Everything works just fine in the Netherlands.
No one is killed and all parties are happy.
Even hot Russian women are happy in Amsterdam.

Do you realize how many millions of dollars and resources are put into this Backpage.com shutdown?
The USA should put all this money and resources into controlling heroin / opioid abuse. Furthermore if prostitution was legal in the USA like it is in many other countries, e.g. Canada, Netherlands, Germany, Czechia, etc. we could tax it and earn billions of dollars in extra revenue.

Immigration Courts: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver


Google is unfairly censoring me again. FTC please help control Google

It seems like an ongoing pattern with Google to unfairly censor me every few years.

The good news is I write a blog article, and hopefully someone at Google reads it then fixes the unfair censorship problems.

The last time Google unfairly censored my review was for a 5 star review I gave to "Eggs and Things Restaurant" seriously. LOL.
See screenshot below.


A few years ago someone at Google uncensored my articles and my reviews, and now my new reviews are being censored again.
Why is Big Brother Google unfairly censoring me again?
Google has the legal right to unfairly censor anyone, however doing so is very Evil. This is why the FTC must put new regulations on Google.


Please see my new review Google is unfairly censoring below:
Google is not letting anyone else see my review.



File a Complaint with the FTC in order to stop unfair censorship by Google. Ask the FTC to implement new regulations on Google in order to stop all the unfair censorship Google is doing.

If you do not you may be the next victim of unfair censorship by Google.

Why Square.com Sucks - Review - Do NOT Sign up with Lame and Defective Square.com

Square.com Review

To: press@squareup.com
Cc: Tom Forrest 

Subject: Reviews of Square.com
Importance: High

Hello,

Square.com is terrible and extremely rude. We have been billing the same clients on credit cards for 15 years with zero chargebacks or problems. HTP Company has excellent reviews and zero problems in 15+ years, so we decided to try Square.com.
If you feel like a dinosaur using an old fashioned "credit card processor", be careful if you want to try a newer service like Square.com.

Square.com Stinks, they just deactivated our account for no reason and we have learned that this is caused by some incompetent employees at Square that think it is okay to just cut people off and not even talk with them.

Guess what, now we are going to write several negative articles about Square.com and explain why businesses should use the superior competitors of Square.com.

This just shows how when a company gets too big, they can lose their common sense and do very STUPID things like this.
Our billings are 100% safe and we have not had any problems since we signed up with Square until now.

We will start publishing negative articles about Square on many high traffic sites.
We have access to over 120,000+ high quality sites for publishing.

Also we will write articles explaining why Square.com competitors are better for small businesses, and why people should not to sign up with lame and defective Square.com

Have a nice day.

Best regards,

Hi Tom,

I researched why Square does this and found that they do it because they feel the activity in the account is risky.  What I read stated that Square will not talk with non-customers and they deem you to be a non-customer once they permanently deactivate your account.  I think it would be a waste of time trying to contact them.

Who are the Competitors of Upwork.com? Should you use them?

I am still using and performing ongoing tests with Upwork.com.
I must admit even though ZenDesk gives me poor responses at first, they do not give up and they keep trying. Even after I am very tough on them. I am trying to find reasons to like Upwork.com yet it is difficult as their system needs big improvements in user friendliness.
E.g. I want to send proposals to USA only jobs, so Upwork wants to verify my drivers license and my bank statement. Of course their software for this process is defective, and ZenDesk tells you to keep trying. Then after 3 tries Upwork cuts you off and will not let you try anymore. Next you have to email ZenDesk and send in a screen shot with the Upwork error message. Then ZenDesk support has to reset Upwork.com and then tells you to try again, however not 3 times, and then send them the next error message. Yes I know this entire defective process is totally ridiculous, there are 4 more steps and emails to ZenDesk and finally it works.
ZenDesk did a good job on follow up to make sure it is working properly.


Another big problem with Upwork.com is that you cannot set different prices for different project types in your profile. E.g. I would like to set a price of $120 per hour for advanced programming work and only $70 per hour for on-page search engine optimization (SEO) projects.

Upwork.com is a large service that I do not recommend. You should consider using their competitors.
Upwork.com seems like the "old dying service" and their competitors are eating their lunch. Plus they use ZenDesk which provides average support.

I found another excellent article on this topic:
