GNC-2012-06-11 #772 Rockin With Good Bandwidth

Ohh boy I am so happy to be back in Honolulu fat bandwidth, my bed, my food, etc…. Thanks for being patient the past 10 days as things where simply crazy.. Nothing like hitting a 100k frequent flyer miles in just over 6 months. Way to many and hopefully I can keep my butt at home for a few weeks. Lots to chat tonight and lots of tech and of course WWDC run down.

GNC-2012-05-29 #769 Family Loss

Received the news late this afternoon that my Grandfather on my dads side of the family had passed away. While expected still has hit me like a ton of bricks. I am luckier than most as I had all of my grandparents up to a few short years ago. All lived into their 90’s and went out on their own terms which is all one can hope for at the end of a long fruitful life. On my past show we where close to the end as my Grandfather was reaching up and calling out my Dad’s name. So I know that my Dad was waiting for him and that he is in a better place. I will likely be heading to Michigan either Wednesday to Thursday so if there is a show it will be from Michigan..

Congratulations to Melisa Strayer she is out last listener appreciation month winner. Congrats to all of the winners this month, and a big thank you to all of you that participated in the contests.

GNC-2012-05-21 #767 HD Mobile Broadcast Studio

Congrats to Sonya Jensen for winning a iPod Nano I think lightning has struck twice here as it appears a husband and wife may have won the last two contests either that or it is a heck of a coincidence. .. Tonight you can win by simply reviewing and commenting of the video of the show. I think it will take a show or two to get things dialed in here on the new portable studio but things went better than I could have imagined.

Congrats to Sam our winner in today’s show. Programming note I have a something to share with a zealous fan at the end of the show tonight, first time in the history of the show to have to do so. But it was bound to happen at some point. I have this show jam packed with tech.

Once in a while a show just hits on all cylinders and I think this one did tonight it was my pleasure to bring you lots of tech plus I get to rant on a Wall Street Fat Cat. I will be hosting a Google On Air with Saturday Morning Tech so I hope you will join us on air.

GNC-2012-05-08 #763 Show Notes are Back!

As you can see there is a link below that has a no-follow tag on it that takes you to the new show notes page. I explain in the show tonight the reason for the change. There may yet be a software solution here at GNC. But we have to do some more investigating on how to implement it. But one thing I am pretty sure of the list of links to all of the articles I cover are forever gone from within the show notes blog post.

Tonight I take you on a tech journey that covers a wide range of topics including some cool stuff happening here at Geek News Central. I want you to pull up a chair or watch the show from your lazy boy as I break down the latest tech news. You have a great chance to win a cool prize in today’s show so listen to win.

GNC-2012-05-04 #762 Google Punishment Requires Change!

Sadly after 762 episodes the way I do my show notes has to change. As near as we can figure it, with recent changes to the Google search results, it appear Google is punishing my site due to the way I put show notes in the shows blog post.  After all it’s just a computer indexing a page, and the computer has no way of understanding that the reason for the high number of links is due to the corresponding audio and video coverage. I have seen enough of a reduction of traffic that it concerns me to make a major change.  I have a plan ahead, and will be implementing the changes as fast as I can get it implemented. For the next couple of shows though their will be no detailed show notes, until I have the new system in place.

There seems to be no other reasonable explanation for Google’s actions, as all of the content on GNC is original content with legitimate outbound links and we have no warnings in the Google Webmaster site. The format of the show notes was such that the links had little context, with link after link stacked on top of one another. We think Google flagged those posts as adding little value and penalized us for it. I know that 10’s of thousands of you come to this page and follow the links along in the show. After 7+ years of doing the show notes the same way it really pains me to have to do this.

The podcast is only a portion of this sites overall traffic and our traffic has been growing steadily over the past few years to force me to make the change.

You have a great chance to win a cool prize in today’s show so listen to win.
