Important Change - Google Changed Review Ranking

Sometimes Google makes changes and nobody notices. Other times they turn the tables upside down. In just the last few days Google has made a simple change that is impacting how they are displaying reviews in their knowledge graph. Google is now showing scores and review counts from other sites, such as facebook, yelp and more. The two review sites with the most reviews are shown, in addition to reviews placed directly on Google. This change has also altered ranking in Google’s search engine result pages (SERP). It is critical for business owners to reevaluate their review acquisition campaigns.

Because of these changes, it is more important than ever to be constantly acquiring new quality reviews. This is specifically why we offer our review management and monitoring service. This service gives you the control over reviews and improves your search rank.

Massive DDoS Attack Oct 21

Today there has been a massive DDoS attack. The results have been wide spread and impact websites and service providers across America. The Department of Homeland Security is monitoring this attack which has come in waves since early Friday. The primary target is Dyn DNS on the east coast. Dyn provides backbone services for a wide range of internet companies, as a result problems are widespread.

TRECpro is not being directly attacked and most of our services have not been impacted. Email delivery to and from TRECpro servers might be delayed depending on the email sources and servers beyond our control. We have also had some minimal issues with the Review Funnel services that depend on some 3rd parties. If you have any issues please contact us for assistance.

 
 

CenturyLink Update Sept 8 2016

Everytime I talk with someone from CenturyLink they explain that my issues are because of how things are setup at my location. This is the same thing they tell every business and home internet user. However, there is very strong proof locally and nationally that CenturyLink is at fault. For more information on the issue visit the link below.
