On January 6, 2014, our social media and content friends over at Brafton
published an article titled, “Google forgives fast: Rap Genius on the path
to SEO recovery.” The article touches on how, if you manage to fall into
the dreaded slap of Google, by following the correct SEO practices, Google
will reinclude your site quickly in SERP’s. Without coming down too harshly
on this editorial, we couldn’t disagree more with this content if we tried.
We are sorry Brafton, we love you but on this note, you’re wrong.

Did you hear about Google buying Nest for an incredible amount of money a few
weeks back? Be honest: do you have any idea who Nest is or what they do? More

If you happened to be in attendance at CES (Consumers Electronic Show) 2014

In 2013, we published 84 blogs. This is the 85th. The last of 2013.
With the last blog of 2013, instead of chatting about the Cloud, instead of
talking about web hosting and instead of talking about how to resolve Linux
OS issues, we are going to tackle a much larger topic – one we touched on
