Issue #69
March 6th, 2018

Hey, lunch buddies.  You know it’s March when you go through the McDonalds drive through and see that the SHAMROCK SHAKE.  Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make it worth living, right?

For those that didn’t catch last weeks #SEOForLunch or recently subscribed remember that I’m giving away a FREE MNSearch annual membership.  It’s a local Minnesota based search community.  Last weeks meet up covered Facebook advertising and then retargeting through paid search.  For an “SEO only” practitioner it was fun to listen too.

What You Need To Know


What’s important?
Bing historically has not honored via JSON-LD forcing those reliant on bing traffic to always leverage microdata.  However, per a source at the company, Bing now honors JSON-LD markup.

Nick’s take:
Hat tip to Jon Henshaw (formally of RavenTools) who tweeted his email correspondence with a Bing rep.

Interesting Reads in Your Spare Time

Using Google Chrome without SEO Plugins –
I nearly clicked out of this article after seeing some of the standard search operators to find specific pages within Google’s SERP.  However, I’m glad I didn’t as you’ll see in this article some fun ways to hack some very valuable SEO data points that all webmasters and SEOs will value.

JavaScript & SEO: The Definitive Resource List –
I love technical SEO.  Part of that love is watching Google continuously getting smarter in the way they handle various technologies.  Barry Adams has created a resource list to keep everyone up to date on all things SEO & JavaScript.  The best part is that he is crowdsourcing updates so if you know of a great resource – go to the post, scroll to the bottom and submit.

Singer/Professor Tries To Sue Student For Negative Review and FAILS –
It drives me insane when companies think they can silence their customers through legal action.  This article shows how one bully gets put in their place after trying to take legal action over a negative comment/rating being left on Yelp & facebook.
