Google is a Monopoly and the FTC should investigate Google, Smartphone Brain Hacking

I hope 60 minutes will release the complete video about Google being a monopoly. I watched it on TV and it was very interesting even though they gave a lot of air time to the lame CEO of crappy and defective Yelp. Since Yelp has never been able to tell a fake review from a real review their content is pure spam and should be taken out of Google completely.
Frankly I would be happy if Google forced Yelp to go out of business, which is very likely.
However there are many thousands of business being treated unfairly by Google and I do want the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to put new regulations on Google like the European Union has.

USA President Trump cancels summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un


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:

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.

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.

Google Adwords, PPC vs SEO - 2018 Report

Every year the same question comes up, what has a better Return on Investment, PPC (Google Adwords) or SEO?

I think in 2018 the Return on Investment (ROI) is better for SEO than it has have ever been before, however PPC is still valuable, especially if you have tested PPC for your keywords and have evidence of good success with PPC.

Please read the following articles:


I discuss SEO and PPC in this article.


This article below is a more scientific study of natural SEO vs. PPC.

Organic search results are 850% more likely to be clicked on than PPC advertisements.

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.

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.

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.

Why Link Building is the Most Important SEO Ranking Factor, and Why You Still Want and Need to Perform Great On-Site Optimization

Rand Fishkin is a very smart person and one of the top SEO experts in the world.
However I want to offer some important SEO advice before you watch the video below.
Please understand that good merit based link building is by far the #1 ranking factor in SEO.

You can separate SEO into two main categories.
1. On-site SEO - e.g. what you do on your web pages. There is a finite (limited) number of ranking points that you can obtain for good on-site optimization.
2. Off-site SEO - e.g. Link Building, who links to your web pages. There is an infinite (unlimited) number of ranking points that you can obtain from great link building. So a site with superior link building can and will outrank a perfectly on-site optimized website.

This is a good thing and there is science behind this and also why Google created the term and concept of PageRank. This is why Google grew so fast and why their search results are superior to their competitors.

If you do a fantastic job of on-site optimization you will also need less high quality backlinks. It also will help you if you have wonderful SEO Tools to use for both on-site optimization and for off-site optimization.

There are 7000 languages around the world, How language shapes the way we think

We are losing languages around the world at the rate of one lost language a week. The lady in the video believes this is a bad thing and I do not understand why. It makes sense to me that there should be less languages needed and used over time as technology continues to make the world a smaller place.
Then I wonder if we will have less countries over time, however I think this question is very different then how many languages we need. Because people need and want to communicate, however for political and economic reasons there is less motivation to have fewer countries in the world. Also I think the Netherlands is a good example of the future, where people may speak a native more obscure language (Dutch) and also speak English as their international language of choice. I have seen people from different countries that all have different native languages e.g. Spanish, Chinese, Russian, etc. all communicate just fine using English.  
Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world, because China has the most people. Over a billion people speak Mandarin, yet only 1% of Chinese people speak English.
Only 13% of the people in the world are fluent at 3 languages and the term for this is trilingual. However if you can speak 5 or more languages fluently you are not only most likely a genius you are known as a Polyglot. Only 1% of the world's population is fluent and can communicate in 5 languages, I have only ever met one person who could do this and he was definitely a genius. He was a medical professor that made a lot of money investing in the stock market and he lived in Monaco. He was also famous for his medical inventions.

Conan Visits Taco Bell Headquarters in Irvine CA, then goes to Inglewood California to eat soul food

This is an old video from Conan that has 10,000,000 views. I do not like Taco Bell food, however once or twice a year I try it to see what is new.
This is one of Conan's funniest videos. 
Conan makes IT guru Chris Hayes' dreams come true with a visit to the Taco Bell test kitchens.
Conan is extremely popular online, however his TV ratings are not so good (poor). So in 2019 Conan's TV show will be cut from 60 minutes to 30 minutes and Conan will travel and make even more online videos of his adventures. This is what the general public desires and it means we will see many more funny Conan videos online in 2019.

Fake Google and Yelp Reviews, Unfair Google Content Censorship, Federal Trade Commision please HELP

I wish I did not have to write articles like this, however if I want to be honest and tell the truth, then I must write articles about these topics.

The video below is about Fake Google reviews, however Yelp is much worse at allowing Fake reviews and filtering out (censorship) of real reviews. The part that bothers me the most is Google's unfair censorship of articles warning people about Fake reviews, and how Google does have a problem with unfairly censoring real reviews. How do I know 100% for certain this happens?
Because Google has unfairly censored a few of my articles and few of my real reviews. I am trying to help people and Big Brother Google sometimes unfairly censors me and prevents me from warning and helping people.
This is why we need the Federal Trade Commission to implement new regulations to control Google and stop Google abuse.
These Google defects can cause many problems for business owners. I have seen businesses suffer serious damage by fake negative reviews and evil terrible companies benefit from fake positive reviews. Any fake reviews harm consumers, and make the Internet unsafe from rip-offs.

Please read the following articles and watch the video to see the proof.

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.
