Hermitage-Vyborg Exhibition

18.09.2015 в центре «Эрмитаж-Выборг» начала свою работу выставка«От Николая I до Николая II.Эпоха историзма в России» — Эрмитаж / Hermitage (@state_hermitage) September 19, 2015
Translation: 18.09.2015 in the center of the Hermitage-Vyborg exhibition "started its work From Nicholas I to Nicholas II. Epoch of Historicism in Russia»

One of the words I have run across yet forget repeatedly is "выставка" for "exhibition". But, the way I figure it, when I someday get the chance to travel to Russian and run across "выставка" on a poster at the Hermitage, I'll probably remember then.

Adjective version of the word...

выставочный центр - exhibition center 


выставлять - to exhibit, to display, to put forward

я выставляю   
мы выставляем
ты выставляешь   
вы выставляете
он выставляет
она выставляет   
они выставляют

What Zazzle Shop Keepers Can Learn From Googling Their Store

I saw a shopkeeper at Zazzle recently ask in the forums ... does Google index store fronts from Zazzle?

Yes, Google does crawl even the storefront at Zazzle. I know that Google is crawling Zazzle storefronts because I can find my storefront when I search for it on Google.

To demonstrate that Google finding storefronts doesn't really matter in the long run, I also googled "Disney Zazzle". It works out that even for a famous brand like Disney, all the options on the first page of search results at Google lead not to their Zazzle storefront, but to Zazzle's search results such as Disney T-shirts, Disney binders, and Disney gifts.

Because Disney is a trademarked brand name, all the products in the search results at Zazzle will get people to Disney's storefront if that is what they really want. But mostly I don't think even people looking for Disney products at Zazzle shop off the Disney storefront all that often.

How does this test work out with more generic se…
