“Mobilegeddon” is Here! Google Starts to Drop Non-Mobile Sites in Search Rankings

I’ve gotten quite a few questions lately about Google ranking mobile websites higher than a traditional website. In a nutshell, websites that load correctly in a mobile browser will rank higher than those that do not.

The big news I’ve been watching over the week is Facebook’s move into the Dark Web, or the anonymous internet that so many of us now use. No other big Silicon Valley Giant has dared to take this step but does it make sense for the Privacy Robbing Giant to move to the Darkweb?

Net Neutrality. Dems Move to Regulate the Internet

Things are heating up this election! Seems that way back in September I wrote to my Senator about protecting Net Neutrality. Her office, or a computer, finally got back to me in the form of an email. Not sure if this is sincere or not but It’s posted below:
