I know there is always a lot of talk about the new direction of Google Search and how Semantics play into those changes. Sandra and I will be talking about Semantic Search with The Semantic Search Thought Leader David Amerland!

Our goal with this Hangout On Air is to try and bring this down to the level of Nooglers (or is that Newglers) so we will be doing our best to help you understand the steps that will be part of helping your small business navigate the waters of Online Marketing in the new age of Semantic Search.

David Amerland Warhol Style - 1About David Amerland

Author, Speaker, Analyst.

I travel a lot. Over the last three years I’ve spent time in thirteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days.

The conversation here is very real and the issues we talk about are engaging and I have met people on G+ who are simply superb to connect with. I post frequently on what grabs my attention. I share insights from my writing and research and I take part in many conversations where I feel I can deliver value.

Social media is changing everything. How we shape that change and what we do in the aftermath is down to us.

Before I got here, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing and blogging.

David Amerland Style Art Image IMG_20140127_094552In my offline time I indulge a lifelong passion in martial arts, I run, hit the heavy bag and try to find the limits at which we can go without sleep and still function. I also visit as many museums and cafes as possible. Funnily enough I regard what can be found in both museums and cafes as brain food.

Fitness is important to me. It helps maintain a level of sanity that would otherwise require pharmaceuticals or expensive therapy. I pay some of what it has given me back by running  a Fitness Community. I am also a moderator of Plus Your Business a community focused on helping business people get the most out of G+ and the semantic web.

Speaking of semantics, I am the owner of Google Semantic Search a community I started to explore the implications of semantic technology in daily life (and there are many).

Professionally I advise a handful of companies globally, blog for a number of websites, including Forbes,, and socialmediatoday and write for magazines and newspapers.

I give about 50 talks, speeches and presentations each year and hold an annual seminar on SEO and Social Media (details to which you will find on my website.). I advise a couple  of global companies and a handful of startups on social media positioning and search strategies and I write for Forbes, 21CIT, Insights and a number of dead-tree newspapers.

I have been asked by +Trevor Joren Martin to speak to the Foundry Utah Website: Facebook:

This is going to be a similar class to the now famous MBA class from Westminster College.

I will be live with a group of Start Up Entrepreneurs talking about Google+ and Hangouts On Air, Google+ and how they can change the world of Small Business and Start Up marketing.

We will cover:

Semantic Search
Google Your Partner
The Unbranding of America.

As with most produced HOAs this will be a multi-camera event designed to educate and entertain.

The Guest that will be joining me remotly (In order of accepting the invitation) are:

+Ryan Minor 
Location: Midvale Utah
Owner of +Lightning Pawn 
Google+ About Page:

I have junk in my blood! As a young boy I would spend time with my grandfather junking old cars for the scrap metal and hopping from yard sale to yard sale looking hidden treasures and “great deals” as my grandfather called them. Fast forward 35 years and my passion has lead me to owning my own pawn shop where I get to deal in “junk” all day every day. They say do what you love and you will never have to work a day in your life well, I can tell you that is true.

Bragging rights
My real bragging rights is my family. I am married to the worlds hottest women. I have two teenage daughters that are a year and a half apart, twin 3 year old boys and twin 6 month old girls…top that!

+Stephanie Sims 
Location: Sctosdale Arizona
Consultant: Venture Advisors
Google+ About Page:

Recovering investment banker, champion of business owners, lover of the written word, wife of a Frenchman, mom of three

I help business owners understand finance and how it can work for them instead of the other way around. By showing owners how to make the most of the financial tools at their disposal, I help them maximize the value of their business and provide a secure future for themselves and their families.

When I’m not helping clients, I’m cooking, playing tennis, reading like a fiend and schlepping the kids all over. My idea of a great evening includes Name that Tune (but only with songs from the 80s), Brie aux truffles and champagne. Not necessarily in that order….

+John Harris 
Location: Denver Colorado

Are you prepared to become your own best guide?

Each of us spends our lives reaching out for meaning, opportunities and awakenings, though some of us may not be aware it’s taking place.  I have spent a great deal of my life expanding my own awareness and sharing those discoveries in ways that enhance and support others on their journey. Using concepts understood and taught for thousands of years, every one of us has the ability to awaken sleepy potentials that lay within us.  Learning where to look is the beginning. 


It is my passion to help others discover their Truth – their Awakened Potential.  Are you ready to be your own best guide? Are you ready to take control and responsibility for your life?

Add me to your circles, send me a message and let’s talk. If you wish to be notified of my guest appearances on HOA’s drop me a line and let me know you wish to be added to the HOA Notifications Circle. If you want to learn a bit more about Empower-Yourself, drop by our blog for a tour of some of our principles and our teachings. 


There are many exciting attributes to Google Plus, and I find that Hangout On Air’s to be one of my favorites. I have been blessed to be a part of several HOAs as a guest speaker. Here is a short list that I’ll do my best to keep updated:
