At the request of LifeBoat.press who happens to be a newly approved editor, a new drug and alcohol rehab channel has been added to SocialBrandsToday. Like all channels on SBT, there is no cost to add your company, or in this case your rehab center, and create an official social brand page. In addition to the usual criteria of having a real website, publicly available business address and at least two social profiles, every rehab facility that wants to be included MUST have CARF accreditation. So, if you are a CARF accredited drug and/or alcohol treatment facility, create an official brand page on SocialBrandsToday.com and help the world follow you.

How do I track a Breezing Forms with Google Analytics?
Tracking Breezing Forms by Crosstec Soultion with Google Analytics is a little complicated, but like most things internet there are numerous resources to use. To make things easier for you, we've made this little video so you can see exactly how to do it.
1) First, you have to create a new page in Joomla that will be used as the Thank You page after a user submits a Breezing Form.
2) Go to Components > Breezing Forms > Manage Forms > Choose an existing form > Options select CUSTOM in the END SUBMIT field and add this code.
/*If you are redirecting to a page outside of your server, then it should be coded like this:*/
/**If your form is displayed in an iFrame and you want the page you are redirecting to, to break out of the iFrame and appear in the main window, use this code instead: */
You will need to change the code in this line to your specific thankyou page.
*You can leave the other code as is, or change as needed if you are using those options.
Now go to your Google Analytics account.
1) Once logged in to to the Admin > Choose your account > Property > View Setting where you want to add a goal.
2) Choose Goals > New Goal
3) Choose type of Goal Set up > Template > Signup.
4) In Goal Description add a unique name ? choose type > Destination.
5) In Goal Details > Choose Equals to > and enter your thank you page url. Just a slash url not the full url. *Choose case sensitive.
For "value" enter the monetary value of a new sign up if applicable.
You can also enter "funnel" info which can be useful to determine if people are following the expected path to your signup page. In our case, the signup page is available as a global navigational item so a funnel is not particularly useful.
Now, test your Breezing form and make sure you are landing on your new thank you page and after 24 hours, go back to your Google Analytics account. Make sure you are logged into the correct view in REPORTING. In the lower left column, you'll see the CONVERSION dashboard. Click it and if you set everything up correctly, you will see conversion data.
About a month ago in May 2016, Facebook started forcing all people to you use a business manager account if you had a business page. In the process, they removed the top of page link to "Home" where you could easily see streams your business followed. It's still accessible, but has been moved to the left, below the "search for posts on this page" box. Just login, switch to your Facebook business identity and click the in the left now ladled "See Pages Feed".
I will teach you how I rank Youtube videos for FREE using white hat SEO.
Copyright 2016 by Michael Zittel @ Serr.biz
In this tutorial I will show you how to create a white hat SEO network which I use to quickly rank YouTube videos for a given keyword term.
First, there are NO guarantees with search engine optimization. However, this is what I do, and have done for a variety of videos which have gained top ten ranking in just a few hours for GEO targeted - Local search terms.
For example, search "Annapolis Youtube marketing". If you search Google you'll find many of my videos and or related web sites in the top ten. I practically own the space! (Serr.biz and Naptown.today.)
You can do the same in your market.
*This technique tends to work the best of long tail and geo targeted search terms. It can work for broad match terms, but will take more time, and related content both in and out of your network.
Now, let's get started.
All set up with a gmail / Youtube / and Google plus page? Great. Now, visit this public spreadsheet in Google and make a private copy for yourself.

A couple days ago in the morning I noticed some activity in the trees out the window of my Annapolis, MD home. There were two large owls flying about, landing, changing positions. Watching something. Hunting. A squirrel. After a few moments, they flew away, but I did get a few shots to add to my nature photography collection. Enjoy.
