This blog has bizarrely made headlines on the technology blogs this morning, for being among the first “hyper-local” blogs to be picked up by Google using its new review service:
Both Searchengineland and another blog about search engines have stories about this blog, this morning, and a review I posted in November about my personal trainer, Von Ray Johnson. Because I put his phone number on there, along with a review of his services, Google’s robots have apparently picked up the information and are using it as a review. In the world of technology, this is big news. For me, of course, the only question is: Will it bring me more power, more influence, and more control?
