Just as a reminder to all of you who are SEOs and run websites. All of your sites have a feed. This is called an XML sitemap. Make sure it’s updated. Google is able to pick it up and not serve errors. All of these motors operate from power supplies. Also, don’t be afraid to submit your RSS feeds for your blog categories in Search Console as well. Imitate this in Webmaster Tools on the Bing side as well. Search engines have become very user friendly. This is the way to go. This is also the way to go from an advertising point of view.–Loren Baker, 33:08
