Randy Milanovic commented on Google Mobile Local Results Expand Link Navigation

I discovered this as well, about a week ago as I was discussing local SEO with a new client. Upon testing the local pack for her query on her iPhone, the client said, "there are about 20 listed". Sure enough, the list went on a few screens. Previous to that, the most I'd seen was 7 results.

George Harris commented on Google AdWords Product Listing Ads Product Ratings Comes To UK, France & Germany

Not a surprising decision, but this feature creates a real bias towards big E-Commerce websites. Those with large ranges and a sizable customer base to generate review numbers stand to benefit significantly. It's also a huge shot in the arm for 3rd party review providers who will be approached by many small/medium sized retailers now because of this feature. Some review providers will "own" the reviews provided by your customers so can trap you for life on a subscription.

Muhammad Junaid commented on Google Updates Canonical Documentation To Show HTTPS URLs

HTTPS means you need to update your SSL certificate but after Google SSL certificate update (use TLS version 1.0 or 1.1) its also become another Ranking Factor. But why Google is focusing on HTTPS ? Because its secure ? No I don't think so ... ! Hacker still hacking and stealing Packets before reach the destinations and also I would like to add in this comment that PAYPAL also recommended that your website must have TLS version not only SSL ! otherwise PAYPAL will not entertained them who's not update their SSL !

StevenLockey commented on Does WSJ's U.S. Antitrust Probe of Google Article Show Google Is Evil?

UNoHoo, that is the legal usage of the word as opposed to the actual definition of the word. Just because someone can be charged under monopoly laws does not mean they actually have a monopoly, the laws cover much more than just a full blown monopoly. And saying Bing isn't a real competitor is just silly. Where did I 'tout Google's goodness'. Apparently calling out BS as BS counts does it? If you spout BS, you had better be prepared to bring some evidence to back it up because so far there has been exactly zero.

born commented on Google Mobile-Friendly Ranking Algorithm Won't Impact Google News Results Yet

I despise the results produced by google on a tablet or phone. I log into pc desktop PC just to get half decent results. the mobile results are absolute rubbish, if you want to investigate something what you will get it sites just selling the product or a big brand. I suggest tagging FORUM or DISCCUSION on all your search terms.

adamb commented on Google: If You Have The Mobile-Friendly Label, That Page Will Benefit From The Mobile-Friendly Algorithm

Yes, my page has been mobile friendly for 2 years (we have a m.site) and all of the pages I tested pass with the tool, but not all of them have the label when I search on my Moto X. lt seems to be a bit inconsistent. It would be great to know if this is something we should address or not.

UNoHoo355 commented on Does WSJ's U.S. Antitrust Probe of Google Article Show Google Is Evil?

Providing competition? Competing with who exactly? Bing? You don't actually believe that do you? Google is the king of disinformation. I have been following Google closely since 2000 and have seen numerous, countless even, practices and policies that are at the *very least* questionable. People who may have not been in SEM and SEO for that long may love Google and that is because they haven't been involved long enough to see the big picture. From my view, there is no question that Google has excessively abused their position. Just look up the lawsuits they have LOST for examples and then tell me they can be trusted. What other giant megacorp do we look at as "good"? Like none. So why Google? Because they say "we're trying to make the world a better place"? Is that not what every corporation says? Crawl out from underneath that snow. Google is no different. Profit driven corporation controlled by the excessively rich. There is no logical reason to think that any corporation can be "trusted" at face value. Has that ever even occurred anywhere in history? Should it?

UNoHoo355 commented on Does WSJ's U.S. Antitrust Probe of Google Article Show Google Is Evil?

A monopoly can refer to having *what amounts to* exclusive possession or control in the sense that an entity has no *real* competitors and their product or service is the default option, and in many cases where the user is unaware they have a choice or is not given the opportunity to exercise that choice. Which also ties into whether or not you are working toward establishing a monopoly intentionally. Your use of the inflammatory comparisons to unrelated conspiracy theory topics shows you had a specific agenda in mind when posting your comment. The comment you replied to did not say anything that was not logical or worth consideration regarding this topic. There is always grey area despite your attempt to paint it black and white by touting Google's goodness, which frankly is a joke. Are you a lawyer or a judge who was involved in this case? If not, why are you making conclusions as if you were qualified to determine whether or not a multi-national company is or is not a trust?

RyanMJones commented on Google Mobile-Friendly Ranking Algorithm Won't Impact Google News Results Yet

Yeah, but so many of them fail so miserably. i mean heck, we had to bring back meta keywords just for them because they couldn't figure out how to include them in the actual content of their pages.
