Spunky, sweet-natured Jessica Monroe is 34-years-old and perfectly happy being single. A producer at a top-rated morning show with a coterie of fun friends and a busy nightlife, she isn´t in any rush to meet a man. Her girlfriends, however, disapprove. And when they secretly place a personal ad on a hot singles Web site on her behalf, Jess is reluctantly hurtled into the topsy-turvy world of online dating, where frogs masquerade as princes, but your soul mate might be just one click away. A laugh-out-loud whirlwind of disastrous dates ensues, from Simon, who seems dreamy over e-mail but ditches her at the dinner table, leaving her with the bill, to Graham, a self-described ´´Ferrari driver´´ who turns out to be a car salesman, with several (old, fat, bald, creepy, cheap, stuck-up) men in between. When an unforeseen event turns her world upside down, Jess starts to wonder if the qualities she thinks she wants in a man are what she ultimately needs. And whether, as a new mystery suitor appears in her e-mail in-box, Cupid has other possibilities up his sleeve. With her sparkling sensibility and brilliant knack for rendering the foibles of modern love in a fresh, unforgettable way, Jane Moore has become one of the fastest-growing names in contemporary women´s fiction. Told with her signature wit, wisdom, and sass, Love @ First Site is an irresistible tale about what happens when we start to look for love between the lines on a computer screen, and a winning, unputdownable look at contemporary romance. 1.

This audiobook is designed to be useful to everyone from beginning website owners to intermediate and advanced website developers and marketers. The opening chapters cover the basics, before Colascione dives into the more detailed information that people need to build, market and maintain a successful website on Google. The progression takes listeners from the starting point of registering their domain name all the way through website editing software, and to Search Engine Optimization for developed sites, including insight into the most sophisticated search engine algorithms, like Google Panda and Google Penguin, which ultimately determine how high websites are ranked. The first few chapters cover domain names and web hosting as well as IP´s, DNS, website builders, web-editing software, like Dreamweaver and Photoshop, and how to get a site started.

After the semi-intermediate topics are out of the way, the listener dives into search algorithms, advanced content marketing, reputation management, social media, some strategic ideas, and most of the new things Google is doing.
