Hi RD,

Hiya RD. I have come across a plugin called iQ Block Country that gives blocked visitors a 401 message. Has anyone used this plug-in?

How to block Referral Spam and Countries within Google Analytics.

lol marat we shared Apaches training :) good :)

Check out the discussion here: Sessions or hits from russia?

They're probably bots, but they won't hack your site. Akismet wouldn't protect you from hacks though...it's just for anti-spam :)

Ah ha, Thanks!

You rock! Thanks for the info.

How do I get my profile pic to show when I check it on Google Snipits? I replaced my photo with a clearer one, but it still does show when I check it.

Thanks for the answer. Now we know. :-)

Hey Dude, Andy is right. I went back to my level 2 training and there is a notice saying that as of June 2014, Google no longer puts the author images beside the search description. There loss, I guess. Ha..ha

Anyway I told you I would get back when I figured it out.

Google is no longer using the picture authorship. Don't worry about it. Move on.

Thanks for asking the question. I didn't have a photo when I first made the bi-directional connection. Then I added a photo but it doesn't come up when I run Snippet. I'm about ready to delete the connection and start over. Hope someone has a good answer for you.

Hi Larry. I have been told that the pic is not necessary anymore.

You're probably right. It just gets to me when I have an issue and can't figure out how to fix it. Guess that's the engineer in me. Ha...ha

How can I edit spelling and grammar mistakes on a post I have already published on Google+?

Looks like you have already received answers...so I'll bow out.

You correct them at source it depends have you posted them to Google plus if you just done it by link it should correct itself. Try one and see!

OK. Thanks!

Thank you!

If they are on G+ I guess you have them in your site as well. If so just go through your posts, modify, update and they will appear on G+ as modified.

Ok. I will give it a whirl. Thanks!
