58 WWW.LCTMAG.COM Top 5 Google Adwords Techniques You Aren't Using (But Really Should Be) SEPTEMBER 2018 least four times that first day. From Disney To Google Adwords What does this have to do with Google Adwords? It's simple. The fight for people's attention in the search engine is brutal. You aren't just competing for attention; you are competing for clicks and business. While you can play the SEO game, it's a long-term strategy that builds upon itself over time. There are multiple moving parts involved if you really want organic search to comprise a large portion of your marketing efforts.

And they were fixated on the gigantic machinery tossing both kid and adult up in the air. I'm describing the rides, of course. The same ones I re- member waiting hours to get on when I was a child. Wait- ing was bearable when it was a new concept and when the contraption was unfamiliar. As a 40-something-year-old, however, I refused to put my feet through the pain. I pulled the Fast Passes I got for my family out of my cargo pants and we zipped through the line.
