  1. Google fonts cause extra server requests. Each font you are using needs to be called from Google's server. On top of that, using different font weights of the same font is additional requests. So, for example, if you are using Open Sans (I think that is a Google font) at a font weight of 300, but for part of your text or maybe for a heading you want a bolder font and use a font weight of 600, that will be two requests. One for Open Sans at 300 and one for Open Sans at 600. If you are on Wordpress, some plugins (like WP Rocket) will combine all the Google fonts on the page into one request instead of sending individual requests, but each font still needs to be downloaded.
  2. Messing around with some idea for a new intro video. Going to get back into doing some video marketing for business. I've shown this to 4 people so far. 2 like the music and 2 hated it. So let's get some more opinions. This is the new website if that influences your opinion at all, https://clickedmarketing.com/. Clicked - Intro.mp4
  3. With so many of the big boys in the U.S. getting out of the way... https://searchengineland.com/updated-the-brands-boycotting-facebook-and-zuckerbergs-response-336735 I'm kidding of course. I'm pretty surprised they have been able to get so many companies like this to ban together for this boycott.
  4. https://www.seroundtable.com/google-new-fonts-for-search-results-page-29684.html Wonder if they will move away from their own Google Fonts because loading them slows pages down so much and makes it hard to pass their new Web Core Vitals tests. Lol
  5. Sounds like the morons are fighting back.
  6. https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/06/22/safari-now-blocks-google-analytics-on-sites-new-privacy-report-feature-shows On the plus side, they have like 8% market share. Only an issue if other browsers follow suit by default.
  7. I wonder how many more times Google is going to have to say this for people to get the hint. https://www.seroundtable.com/google-analytics-bounce-rates-for-ranking-29622.html
  8. https://www.espn.com/racing/nascar/story/_/id/29293767/nascar-bans-confederate-flags-racetracks And millions of mullets scream out in anger. Should have been done a long time ago. The only place that flag belongs is in museums.
  9. With everything going on in the world, I decided it might be a good idea to lift this rule. We will see how it goes. I ask that everyone keep the discussions civil, stay on point, and refrain from any kind of personal attacks. If you post articles, please do your best to fact check them beforehand and use reliable sources. No InfoWars type garbage.
  10. Here comes Google tipping their fingers on the scale again... https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2020/05/evaluating-page-experience.html
  11. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will see an option that says Themes with a down arrow beside it. Click that and you will see a new theme option called Clicked Blue. Pick that and the forum will load as a more "traditional" blue and white color scheme.
  12. As I mentioned in the update to the forum post, I'm not just rebranding Spartan Marketing Academy into Clicked.Marketing. I'm also rebranding The SEO Pub, LLC as Clicked Marketing, LLC. I just got the official paperwork back from the state authorizing the LLC name change, so things are moving along. The new website is almost done. As soon as it is, I will be doing 301 redirects of all The SEO Pub pages to the new pages on Clicked Marketing. Right now, locally I rank in the local places box for pretty much every SEO related search. I'm going to keep the same GMB and just change the name. I'm not going to go on a big campaign getting all citations changed. I'm going to take care of big ones like Facebook, Manta, Yelp (fuckers), etc. I have done this before changing domains and never saw a drop in rankings. I have never done it changing domains and business names. I am not hugely concerned if I do lose local rankings. I get very few local leads (like 3-4 a year tops despite my rankings) and have few local clients. It will be an interesting opportunity to see how things are handled by Google. My NAPs will certainly be a bit inconsistent. Will that really matter or does Google use the redirect to compensate for that?
