Google+ should you be there?
Google+ is one of the newer social media kids on the block and a lot of businesses are wondering if they need to play in that sandbox as well. So what is Google+ all about?
Google+ is a pretty big place to network. Its platform is like a combination of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn but it's important to understand that even though there are similarities, G+ does not work like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and must be treated quite uniquely.

Segment one of Heath's show asks the question:
Are you about to experience a big, fat "Google slap?"
Silicon Valley web designer and developer Karen Sielski says, "Yes.. unless your website is mobile friendly."
Many business owners could see the website rankings they've worked so hard to achieve tank overnight. Google has decided to penalize those sites it deems unfriendly to smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices. This could have a devastating effect, especially on those who sell their wares online or who rely on search to drive customers to their businesses.
Karen will also discuss the importance of creating sites that are aesthetically pleasing AND track well in search, and how to have sites that look like they cost THOUSANDS, while only spending HUNDREDS.
