  1. I agree. To be fair, it looks like the site just launched in June maybe. Also, I think they are specifically targeting traditional party candidates and not independent candidates. It's kind of the whole point of the site, in my opinion. Have friendly discussions and debates from members of our two major parties that can highlight the differences on issues as well as where there is common ground. For example, I think this is a good example of what the site really aspires to be. You have to watch each video but the candidates go back and forth in short, concise videos that just about anyone could digest. And again, my favorite part of the site I think might be that there are no discussion areas, no like buttons, etc. I hope the site takes off. It does have Captain America as one of its founders, so there's a chance.
  2. I can't believe I had never heard of this site sooner. It's an awesome concept. https://www.astartingpoint.com/ Maybe the best part about the site is there are no comments or discussion areas, no likes, and no shares. Just politicians talking about issues from both sides of the aisle.
  3. For all of you fans of Divi, make sure you have run their most recent update. https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2020/08/critical-vulnerability-exposes-over-700000-sites-using-divi-extra-and-divi-builder/
  4. How often have you looked for a review online for some product or new service and saw those "Don't buy until..." titles all over the place? Well, they are hardly original. They have been working since the 1860's. https://swiped.co/file/dont-buy-ads-1860-1880s/
  5. That is Deadpool 2.
  6. It's an ad builder. It doesn't let you manage campaigns from the SEMrush platform. Unless something has changed with it since the last time I took a look at it.
  7. I haven't tried the new tool yet, but apparently it is widely hated so far. https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2020/07/rich-results-test-out-of-beta.html
  8. Thanks for the feedback everyone. That's kind of what I was getting among others as well. It was a very mixed bag. Working on something different now.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Sounds like the morons are fighting back.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Here comes Google tipping their fingers on the scale again... https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2020/05/evaluating-page-experience.html
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. Create new users. Then edit the posts and change the author.
  22. Someone needs to log into her computer and ban the InfoWars domain.
