  1. I can't wait to see what kind of favicon spam IM'ers come up with to try to influence clicks.
  2. It's not something businesses set up. It's just Google trying to get more activity. The more people they get leaving Google reviews the fewer people are leaving Yelp reviews. Ultimately, they want to put Yelp out of business, and I hope they succeed.
  3. Yep. If they get verified they should be able to run ads again. You can call Google to make sure. Their AdWords support team is usually fairly helpful.
  4. I think it was actually a good move by Google because of all the scam sites out there. They did the same thing in the past to locksmiths. If I am not mistaken, there is a way for businesses to get qualified to run ads. It's not just the big guys. And the change has nothing to do with HP, Apple, etc. trying to get rid of the little guys. Google made the decision, and the last thing they want to do is help Apple. The reason companies like Best Buy can still run ads is because they are easily verified by Google. As for refunding the customer, why in the hell would they do that? If an ad was not approved, there is nothing to refund. If ads were run in the past, they got their money's worth.
  5. I'm working with the host to hopefully get things resolved. We have been having some brute force attacks out of China, Russia, and Iran. I've tried a few methods to block those countries, but it slows the site down tremendously (like adding about 40,000 lines of code to the .htaccess file). I think the host is working with a skeleton crew this week, so it has been slow going back and forth with them.
  6. Okay, I see it now. This has been around for some time now. A lot of people think it is triggered by using FAQ schema. I have seen it triggered both with and without the schema though. The important thing is to look for related searches asking questions and incorporate those questions and appropriate answers into the page. That seems to work to trigger these expanded results.
  7. Your image isn't working. Can you PM it to me and I will get it fixed up? I think I know what you are talking about, but want to make sure before I comment.
  8. Apparently Blizzard has a big annual convention coming up in a week or two. That is going to be a serious shitstorm. Can't wait.
  9. It would be a good time to create pages about how to cancel a Blizzard account or how to cancel a World of Warcraft subscription. Low competition, but right now the searches on those terms and related ones is blowing up. Lol. They fucked up.
  10. I have used both Bitcoin (client request) and PayPal for receiving payments from India. At the time, the way Bitcoin was going up, I was making an extra 30-40% profit on the job. The problem with a lot of merchant services today is they will charge an extra percentage for international payments. Pisses me off. With everything in the financial world so automated and electronic, it really costs them nothing extra to process a payment no matter where it comes from.
  11. I saw a Reddit thread pop up about this a month or so ago, or maybe it was in a Facebook group. They both got flamed pretty hard, deservedly so.
  12. Every single time I see a story like this, I have the same thought. Did nobody watch Terminator and Terminator 2? (the rest of the franchise didn't happen) I feel like these need to be mandatory viewing for top ranking government officials.
  13. I'm not familiar with any way to monitor the price other than to pull it up at a registrar. I'm also not really sure if there is a time period after which you can expect to see the price drop. I've never heard anyone say that. I kind of always just assumed the price was the price, but I guess it makes sense. If it goes for a year or so and nobody buys it, why wouldn't they drop it?
  14. I'm optimistic for this. I was not excited for Better Call Saul when it was announced, but it has been way better than I ever expected.
