Happy New Year Everyone!
This will be a great 2014! 🙂
Advised them to get on Google+
|While we were riding around on the wine tour below, I convinced Philip Green (who runs Appellation Wine Tours) to get onto Google+ and make a page for his company. He was of course first only interested in Facebook likes, Tweets, etc etc. But one thing he didn’t think about (most people don’t) — is that no one actually searches for anything worthwhile on FB or Twitter. People use Google to search for stuff, and if your local business has a robust Google+ page with some good reviews and photos, it completely changes the way search results look and work. Here’s a little screenshot I to the right of what things look like now that he has done it.|
|此次的红酒之旅期间，我说服Philip Green (Appellation Wine Tours就是他在做) 在Google+ 给他的公司做个页面。当然，一开始他只对Facebook、推特之类的东东感兴趣。不过有一点他没想到（事实上也很少有人能想到）：上Facebook和推特的人很少会在上面搜索什么有价值的东西；而人们上Google则主要是为搜索。如果你做的业务有一个很棒的Google+页面，再来几条好评加几张好图，那将彻底改变搜索的结果。在此附上一张Philip公司的页面截图。|
Daily Photo – Taking out the rowboat at Northburn Station
This is one of the places we stopped on our little wine tour a few weeks ago. It was a great lunch that we had with a little bit of time left over for photos. Well, naturally, we made sure there WAS extra time left over for photos! Whenever there is a group of photographers around, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to hit some of the most scenic bits of these wineries!
