roger'd commented on Google "Slow To Load" Label Resurfaces On Mobile

I agree with your point but wonder what the threshold would be for the label to appear? For instance, I think maybe up to 10 seconds could be acceptable if the target page is helpful enough. But if the label is deterring users from something helpful then it might be overkill. Hmmm.

Probably just an algorithmic co-incidence of too many like terms, especially commercial ones.

James commented on Google "Slow To Load" Label Resurfaces On Mobile

Bloody good idea! But not seeing this in search... is it only for mobile? I hate slow sites. Searchers are impatient, so think this appears to be a smart move. But what number is considered to be slow or fast?

DontbeEvil_Google commented on Google Tells Moz They Can Earn $2.5 Million In Partnership With Them

With massive traffic like that in MOZ, Google wants some of their earnings. On smaller, less frequented sites, Google wants you to pay for ADWORDS. ADWORDS for lower traffic sites ADSENSE for high traffic sites Google = extortion = mafia

DontbeEvil_Google commented on BBC Lists The Right to be Forgotten Removed Pages

The pages removed in the UK still show in Google Search in the USA, so? How is this a win for human rights? There are more searches in the USA than in the UK. To be fair, Google USA should also have the right to be forgotten enforced. Do it now

Aurora commented on Google Maps Murder At 52.376552,5.198303 In Netherlands

Isn't it better to just let the authorities deal with it ??!?!?!? Like seriously most of you guys aren't criminal investigators you don't know what's going on !!!! Oh my goodness, and if you are the authority, than good you must know what's going on, so who ever doesn't know what's going on should really keep their thoughts to themselves and stop saying that other are "idiots" because your not cuallified to determine what is truly going on. -Thank you

Oh, that's ok. It's a terrible website, and I have no excuse to not making it the best representation of what it is we do. I just need to get on that because I am sure we're leaving money on the table. ;-)

Faded Joke commented on When Forum Moderators Go Bad

A moderator on topdocumentaryfilms has been targeting religious post nearly entirely. I was trying to point out that no one should be forced to accept the point of view of someone else and was blocked. The site admin never got back to me over multiple emails. Just a shame that bad moderators get a pass for whatever comments they make and can delete or suspend non incendiary users just for possessing a viewpoint of civility towards others. Achems_Razor is the mod. 1 of 3. The others are great as long as you don't make stuff up or harass people. Just lost my faith of an unbiased top tier documentary site.

Don't forget to post it here, but I can see you in the field of Adwords, a field where budget matters more than branding. If you are cyberliciousinc.com owner/member then I am very much impressed. However, the keywords carrying visitors to your website are a little different from what this site is about. "google engage for agencies" brought the most visitors and I could not find the site from where they arrived. And what about Google Partners? I am not challenging you, but again its an area of Adwords what this busiest keywords leads you to. I hope the debate in case study will be about organic SEO. We are breeds of the different worlds, otherwise.

Anon User commented on Does Google Spammy Structured Markup Manual Actions Result In Ranking Downgrade?

I would imagine that Google sees sites who run their own visitor ratings as low quality / low trust, unless they are of course Amazon or the like. If you want to offer out user ratings and benefit from the stars that show in the serps, you probably need to get rated on independent 3rd party sites that google has a modicum of trust for. Running your own rating show is like the police policing the police. I can't see it benefiting you anytime soon.

Stefan Mustieles commented on Does Google Spammy Structured Markup Manual Actions Result In Ranking Downgrade?

I saw this a while ago on a very popular ecommerce site. The penalty was for aggregated reviews data on category level pages. Suffice to say all rich snippets were lost sitewide, however this did not affect the rankings. The penalty was easily removed and the rich snippets returned on the product pages where they belonged. Has simplybusiness.co.uk got a similar penalty? Just noticed they have lost their rich snippets for insurance terms. It may have something to do with them using schema.org/InsuranceAgency which is for actual local high street businesses rather than a comparison site.

Ben Guest commented on Google Panda Algorithm Refresh Still Coming Soon

And that is the dilemma, "what works" vs. "what should work." As you can see, we know exactly what works: http://www.cyberliciousinc.com/google-panda-recovery/; however, we found out we were combating a business owner that felt they could do "what should work" and fired them. Now, we have a case study coming soon to show the difference ("what works" vs. "what should work") so, in essence, we agree.

Hannan Ahmad commented on Google Panda Algorithm Refresh Still Coming Soon

LOL...........I don't think you know the ropes till their depth. What works matters more than what should work. And if you know what works then there is a chance for penalty removal and growing rankings once or twice in every 2-3 month's period. Leaving a hint for you here. "Do you know how DA and PA parameters act to the ranking in Google?" Study their relationship to Google rankings and you will reach the same conclusion as mine. If not then SEO is a religion to you, not science since science does not let you have a difference of opinion while every two religions have extreme differences of opinion.

Mark F commented on Google "Slow To Load" Label Resurfaces On Mobile

There is a saying that the best things in life are worth waiting for. Of course we need faster sites, Or maybe we just need faster connections and let the sites sort themselves out. There is a worry that those who are an authority in their trade may not be an authority in site loading times. So we end up with sites ranking higher from internet marketing firms rather than the professional tradesmen we are looking for.

Timmy Griffin commented on Google "Slow To Load" Label Resurfaces On Mobile

A slow loading site is worse than a fast loading one, every time. Even if they have what I'm looking for I'd never waste my time waiting for one site when meanwhile I can open the next results from the SERP.

Timmy Griffin commented on Google Makes Clicking On Mobile Ads Harder To Protect On Accidental Clicks

That's really helpful. Can't remember a time when an ad showed and I didn't click on it by accident, trying to scroll down or doing anything at all. These ads seem to pop-up right at the same time you're tapping your phone, on the same place your finger is.

Colin commented on Google "Slow To Load" Label Resurfaces On Mobile

Disagree. If a site is going to take 40 seconds to load, there is no harm letting people know in advance. Users can then just avoid it, or view the cache to save themselves the time.

John commented on Does Google Spammy Structured Markup Manual Actions Result In Ranking Downgrade?

I have the same thing. Google removed my aggregated review stars. I have plenty of visitors leaving reviews which now doesn't show in the SERPs. Only when I type site:mysite.com . I didn't receive any message about it.

Nate commented on Does Google Spammy Structured Markup Manual Actions Result In Ranking Downgrade?

Barry, what if you are in compliance with best practices, yet Google has decided to withdraw rich snippets in SERPs from your listing (ex.- legitimate star ratings for products)? No notice, no errors in Search Console. Is it necessarily a penalty, or Google just being temperamental?

Dom commented on BBC Lists The Right to be Forgotten Removed Pages

Some of them do not even mention a name on them. For instance, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-mid-wales-26820735 . Do areas have the right to be forgotten as well?
