Google Glass at MOCAD

Trying on Google Glass

Last week, I had the opportunity to try Google Glass for the first time at the #DetroitThroughGlass event at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. I have to admit: I was blown away.

Promoting Rick's American Café through Google AdWords

The company I chose to start my Google AdWords campaign for is Rick’s American Café located not only in East Lansing, but Ann Arbor as well.

How I optimized my blog

Optimizing my blog proved to be harder than I initially anticipated, especially considering the content of my blog.  I was determined to figure out the best way to get my blog out there so I began digging through the class resources as well as my textbooks.  The first thing I did was consult the Business Insider article about basic SEO tips.  After reading it, I discovered the importance of keywords.
