      I've been working through some ideas of how to increase by online presence and bring in traffic besides what I get from Big G.  I'm trying to work with some social media platforms, but unfortunately it turns out...

      Come on, man!

      You know, I try to think deep down inside that Google is doing the right thing when it comes shaking up the search results and keeping everyone on their toes, weeding out the junk and all that, but times like this just...

      5 years ago

      Is Heaven an actual place we might discover if we were to explore space (or somewhere, maybe another dimension) thoroughly enough, or does it only exist in a spiritual sense?If it's a physical place then this means God,...

      Is This Hub Safe for Adsense?

      5 years ago

      Maybe I worry too much, but even though this Hub is intended as commentary of a movie it does talk about a fictional fight.  Does it step over the line on Google's Adsense policies?  It didn't seem to hit any...
