Graeme Boyd commented on Google AdWords Editor: Not Available For Chromebook

Thanks for posting this. I was looking to buy my first Chromebook for working as I travel. No AdWords Editor is certainly a deal breaker. Saved me from a big mistake.

Jake Darwin commented on Google Says Capital Letters In URLs Don't Impact Rankings

Bing's spider is (as far as I know, from my Access Files information) http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm) ----BUT bing's spider does not detect UPPER CASE names. For example I have NUKE-LIES as a folder, and Google finds and spiders all its files. But Bing doesn't do this; it just records a 404 'error'. ----Is there some way (probably with .HTA or conceivably with something like rel="canonical") to coax Bing's robot into spidering the site?

Service company commented on Google Maps Drops Outlining Local Boundaries

Cities, Counties, Zip Codes and more, are missing from the full map version - when you do a generic place search, it shows up in the small upper right thumbnail but there is not way to utilize it at a scalable level. Also, a lot of mobile search results changed the way information is presented - voice search fails to follow instructions to call a well know business, such as a big box hardware store in a particular city where there is only one of them - saying "call XYZ Store in ABC (the city)" no longer works!!! - instead, multiple steps are needed to complete the task. Other issues also - G voice has been buggy as the recording feature turns itself on and off by itself (this requires a DTMF tone digit of 4 to toggle, but it now just does it randomly by itself. Google, we miss you (lol).

Andy Kuiper - SEO Analyst commented on Google Says Switching URL Structures & Going HTTPS Are Handled Differently

That's interesting, I've always kept things simple, which is good... never realizing that Google might not be able to actually figure it all out in one shot.

MapMan commented on Google Maps Drops Outlining Local Boundaries

These boundaries change frequently. Local governments are terrible about getting up-to-date information out to who they are required to provide it to. Good luck for companies getting it promptly.

Cam commented on Switching Back From HTTPS to HTTP: Google Concerns

This is what my site is going through. We were always on the first page for local search. We switched to https and now we have dropped 2 pages back. I hope we can bounce back.

Nony Moose commented on Shabbat Observers Worried About Google's Interstitials Mobile Penalty

And if the customer's card is subsequently declined, they'd be waiting a day, falsely expecting it to process, etc. Far more open amd honest this way. At least as I see it. I cant speak fpr their practices regadless. If a physical store can close on their sabbath such as chick-a-fila, without affecting a google ranking such as maps for a chicken restaurant search, so too, e-commerce. if you want to wait till tuesday to pay but get ahamburger today, call popeye or wait for the doors to open

Yes, I saw it on Friday. Some of my colleagues still have the old version.They also hid the quick option to view/hide private results under "settings".

I haven't seen it so far. But I am eager to. Can you share its features or give a relevant URL? Thanks for sharing.

Let's do all the things at once. Nothing can possibly go wrong with that strategy.

StevenLockey commented on Shabbat Observers Worried About Google's Interstitials Mobile Penalty

Exactly my point. If there is no-one there to allow me to buy anything. Its not the best place for Google to send me, so I would expect it to get out-ranked by a shop that is open all the time. Also if its the taking of payment that is against the Sabbat, there would be nothing stopping the site taking the order, but delaying the actual debit of money until the next working day which wouldn't violate Sabbat and would allow them to be open 24/7. As soon as you start making exclusion from the actual best choice based on religious or other reasons, you are simply giving bias over customer service.
