    Last weekend at a local street market I had to opportunity to meet and talk to an "official" Google Business Map photographer. We had an opportunity to converse for about 20 minutes about Google and their 15 algorithms that are used to decide which internet websites make it to the top of the Google search engine pages. Much of what we discussed is already in place with our ISG websites and have been for years. But there were several issues that I realized we have missed that could easily help us maintain our status at the top of the Google search results in a variety of keywords that describe our services. As a result I thought that today we would offer a review for everyone of the point discussed last weekend, and perhaps help others of our ISG Global Community to better utilize the Google Algorithms.

    We are pleased to announce that after the required review process, the ISG Courses for Insurance License Continuing Education have once again received certification renewal through the 2014 - 2016 term by the Texas Department of Insurance. By Midwest Zone CE Reciprocity Agreement, this gives the ISG CE courses formal status in 46 states, with the ISG training for gemology and jewelry appraisal being accepted world-wide.

    We are pleased to report to our ISG Community two new outreach programs to assist local colleges and universities through the gem and mineral collections of the ISG, and our Amazing Gem and Mineral Museum. Today we had the honor of a visit from media specialist Aaron Ellis and geologist Carlos Flores from San Antonio College's Title V Program: Adalante Tejas. This program has developed advanced 3D imaging technology that is being used to build one of the world's most complete 3 dimensional image databases of gems and minerals for the purpose of advancing the study of geology (gems and minerals) on all levels. At left you see the result of this technology with the fossilized palm wood specimen from the ISG / Amazing Gem and Mineral Museum collection.
