  • Google Confirms Featured Snippets Anchors & Highlights Feature On Desktop

  • Google Wizard of Oz Easter Egg

  • Martin Splitt Laptop Headbang
    Here is a GIF I made from the latest Google webmaster hangout of Google's Martin Splitt taking his laptop and soften doing a headbang with it. It was a question around link juice of course.
