Getting an invitation to a party or event is usually a good thing. But that warm feeling you experienced when you received the invitation can quickly disappear when you notice that no dress code is mentioned. Figuring out what to wear is already a task.

The Top 5 Promotions To Run on Facebook


Facebook business pages are a bit like nightclubs as there are two broad types.

Understanding Google Author Rank


Understanding how Google works is becoming easier. If you have dipped your toe in SEO or other parts of online marketing you might think that is a ridiculous comment to make. But it’s true – the world of Google is becoming more like the “real” world (more accurately described as the offline world). And Google Author Rank is a perfect example.
