This option used to exist... I was looking to tell Google to bring it back when I found this post.

John A. User commented on Google Testing Large & Small Images In Mobile Search Result Snippets

Do hate when they show the full image therefore no longer requiring users to go to site.

Seth Goldstein commented on Google Pushing Search Console Owners To Verify Via Domain Property

Yea, doing things via domain properties is so much easier than doing it individually. I need to make an effort to convert all my properties to this.

My site moved up one place for most search terms, now ensuring 4 visitors instead of 3.

joamuk commented on Google On Selling Domains Based On SEO Value

I would love to believe what John says, but the reality is that nearly all my close competitors use "second hand" domains as their primary method of ranking. Whatever should be happening in terms of devaluing them simply isn't working. But I'm guessing all of you SEO's on here already know that — so why doesn't John?

Nice backlink. Juicy. Im sure you will rank #1 in no time. More links more money.

F5 WebStudio commented on Does Google Count Links On Noindexed Pages? It Depends Says Google

This clearly shows how algorithms (Yes/No) work. I think Google calculates all links, but only a part of them will be indexed, then a part of them will pass "a value" for a page ranking to a particular user based on the user's previous queries, language, location, preferences, etc. Of cource some links never pass value. Some links can pass "highest value" for one query and "little value" or is totally ignored for another query.

"And it doesn't matter in the bigger picture, so I'm happy to leave it open :)" –źnyone with data on this? The topic is really interesting I wonder how many more other things don't matter in the bigger picture? :D

Constitute Project commented on Google Search Knowledge Graph For 25th Amendment and Constitution of United States of America

Hi there! We at Constitute partnered with Google to launch this feature in 2015, glad to see it's coming in handy! The initial launch was covered a bit here and there: https://9to5google.com/2015/09/17/the-constitutions-of-13-countries-now-show-up-as-knowledge-graph-results/, https://venturebeat.com/2015/09/17/google-search-can-now-show-you-the-full-constitution-in-13-countries/

JJ Spelman commented on Google Might Not Launch The Page Experience & Core Web Vitals Label

I agree wholeheartedly that these badges should not be implemented. They have the potential of confusing users, as you said, by creating the impression that they are more worthy of CTR than those that do not. The click should be earned by SEO alone and not some ambiguous “sticker.”

@Michael_Martinez commented on Google SMITH Algorithm Is Not Live

The SMITH algorithm would be used to find similar or related documents, and thus for queries that return those kinds of results. It doesn't create a predictive model that other algorithms can use - hence, it would never replace BERT.

BiII Lamberta commented on Smallish Google Algorithm Update Around January 12th?

Something is going on. Traffic is up and so are Pages per session at least in the last few hours. So not only more traffic, but different traffic too. Looks like an update to me. Homoerotic play gadgets niche.

Jeff Mcneill commented on Google On Why Sites With Some SEO Bad Practices Rank Well

The market demands this kind of crap service. CEO -> Marketing manager "get me ranked #1", Marketing manager -> shady linkbuilder "get me ranked #1 here is some money". Broad spectrum professional SEO/Marketing "That doesn't work". CEO/Marketing manager "I can't hear you."

Lyn Geist commented on Google On Why Sites With Some SEO Bad Practices Rank Well

Excellent point. I worked with a marketing company for a minute whose sole focus was SEO ranking. They wanted 10 blog posts in 2 days stuffed with keywords and paid about 5 dollars a post. The content was crap but they didn't care because they promised the client SEO ranking. It baffles me how they think anyone in their right mind would look at that content and think "Yes, this is the company I trust and want to use." The ranking was worthless

Fred Bazzeeda commented on Google Explains Why Their Image Search Results Look Racist

I just came across another one, as someone else pointed out on another forum, google "African" then google "European." Totally different. Does anyone see how obvious that is? The excuse given in this article is debunked by these searches.

Al Anthony commented on Google On Why Sites With Some SEO Bad Practices Rank Well

So you can have doorway pages and use an address in a virtual office and get away with it? Apparently so.

Used to. But don't any more - I think because I now use HTTP2. Can't remember though.

William Rossi commented on Google Might Not Launch The Page Experience & Core Web Vitals Label

Will the Google Page Experience measure both desktop and mobile, and spit out different results? My mobile is great, my desktop has severe CLS penalties because of the volume of content (and the way wordpress loads complex pages).

RGraph.net charts commented on Smallish Google Algorithm Update Around January 12th?

My site went up a spot (yes - up) to 13th. It's now returned to 14th where it's been since the start of December. Strangely - it's only 14th in the UK - in other countries I understand that it's faring rather worse.

But they will. And let's be frank, doing the right things doesn't guarantee you ranking either.
