Sara commented on Google Android Apps Now Rank Even If The App Is Not Installed On Your Device

We were chatting a month ago on Twitter about a quote from Mariya from Google and you said that app indexing was already at the point of helping new users. Was that not yet true at the time or has something additional changed?

The accuracy of Google's Scrape Graph is not up to par.

Meh commented on Google: We Won't Remove Your Non Mobile-Friendly Site From Our Search Results

Just clarifying two things 1. Fast is not in play, in any way, shape, or form. 2. The only things it checks are "has a viewport", "has normal text size", "width < viewport", and "links not close together". Those 4 things do not reliably predict "good".

Google Focused it search for Mobile and also introduce a Mobile search Algo on 21st April '15. May be after implementing for Mobile search its also reflect on desktop search.

Jon Burnham commented on Google Android Apps Now Rank Even If The App Is Not Installed On Your Device

Thanks Barry. I think the title is a bit ambiguous. I read it as - if I uninstall an app, then it gets indexed. Which of course would be very logical in the universe that Google now runs.

Most probably better user experience, and would be great

RandolfFluffypantsIII commented on Android Google Glass Penguin Figurine

Hardly, try ranking a brand new site and monetizing it these days single-handed. In 2008 it was a piece of cake, now you have to have a few thousand dollars start up capital to hire writers and artists at the very least (OR A LOOOOOT OF TIME). Just because one realizes that Google nearly monopolized (just lets enough competition exist to avoid anti-trust suits) the search world, made it virtually impossible for old school stick sign in the dirt entrepreneurs with no start up capital and a lot of knowledge does not mean this distaste has anything to do with spam. So yeah, strawman argument there old bean.

Curious why Rand, Barry and Danny don't like this? Seems very user friendly.

So my already low spend level on Bing Ads is going to get even lower? Won't be worth branching out onto Bing in the end

Tripp Hamilton commented on Google Mobile Search Drops URL For Site Name & Breadcrumb Navigation

Definitely makes the mobile interface look a bit cleaner/sleeker. The breadcrumb view offers the user the website name and method by which to navigate to the page that shows up in the SERP, rather than having a jumble of words and slashes. Thumbs up, Google!

I like the idea from an SEO perspective. It could help us create more content that is relevant to the topic.

Google makes over 600 changes per month. Some are more visible of course than others.

Joy Hawkins commented on Google AdWords Ad Preview & Diagnosis Showing Incorrect Ads Sometimes

Thanks for shedding more light on this Barry. It drove me nuts for awhile before I decided to bring it up at the forum. I believe it was only impacting users in Canada who were using the Ad Preview Tool to see ads in the USA on mobile devices.

Arjun Mahishi commented on Google's New "People Also Ask" Box In Search Results

Good feature. It can be both useful and distracting. Useful because it helps people to better research on things. Distraction because, it might divert you from the actual thing that you want to know. As long as the research is generic, there is no problem.

Evgeni Yordanov commented on Google's New "People Also Ask" Box In Search Results

Well. I don't know about you guys, but I think too many changes are going on at the moment. This + the no-URL SERPs for Mobile from today; #mobilegeddon + the doorway pages update next week... Is Google changing up their game completely, or is it just a coincidence according to you?

ChrisCD commented on Yandex To Bring Back Links To Search Ranking Algorithm

I'm with James. If the Algo works without links, what could would buying links accomplish and why would they care?!? Clearly there is some smoke and mirrors going on here. And sadly, good sites (like with Google) will be caught in the crossfire.

Hi, guys. We're trying to find Matt Cutts' email to interview him. Could you help us with a like or a comment? http://texterra.biz/matt-cutts-email/ This is extremely important. This will help us to destroy Russian black hat SEO.

Haha My Site is not under penguin. I am not able to maintain my blog regularly due to some freelancing work I already have. I will try to increase regularly. Thanks for noticing my blog. I have very less links. there is no penguin problem. There was no penguin update during the traffic drop days.
