LastPass is one of the most important tools in our “how to not hate computers” kit.
CNET, the tech media website that publishes reviews, news, articles, blogs, and podcasts on technology and consumer electronics, rates Last Pass with 5 stars and comments “This robust password manager is a must-use freeware tool that supports multiple operating systems and browsers.”
Save time and avoid the headache of trying to recall or find your passwords. In a few simple steps you can download LastPass, create your account and save sites as you go. You will have the security of never losing another password again. Your passwords are stored encrypted in a secure “vault” which you access with one master password. It syncs across all your devices (home computer, laptop, iPad, smart phone) and can auto log into often visited sites, and it keeps your accounts and addresses readily available for online shopping with automatic and time saving form fills.
You can even share your login (while hiding the password) with trusted family members and friends or colleagues.
With our new system, you can automatically send email blasts to a selected MailChimp list – right from a WordPress blog post! What a time saver and a great way to send important and helpful information out. Look for setup instructions soon.
There are so many great events to enjoy leading up to the Big Hitch Parade for Wagon Days. One of our favorites is the annual Pancake Breakfast that supports the Papoose Club. Come by Ketchum Town Square on Saturday and Sunday from 8 to noon and enjoy a hearty breakfast of pancakes, eggs, sausages along with fruit, juice and hot coffee. See you there!

Hi Lisa & Julie – we received our first inquiry on our new website! It was from a local 69 year old woman who wanted to know more about moving in. I emailed her back and then phoned her about our project. She said she saw our latest ad and went to the website listed in the Ad.
Good Work – we so appreciate your support & expertise.
You two are angels from heaven!

Why are Duplicates So Bad?
The biggest problem with duplicate listings is that they tend to spread ranking data in the form of reviews, citations, pictures, and user generated content across the different duplicate listings. So, instead of having one strong listing you end up with a couple mediocre listings that will struggle to rank.
Just recently, I had a client who had worked hard for some solid reviews and citations drop from the 7 pack because of a duplicate where a lot of data transferred to the new listing.
How to Avoid Duplicates?
I want to keep this as simple as stupidly possible. Make sure that your Business Name, Address, and Phone number (NAP) are exactly the same everywhere online. This is the golden rule of local search. The big secret to success. So, go get to work and if you are interesting in more local search talk then follow me on twitter.
