Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: August 14, 2015

This week, I do the search video recap from up north in Israel - sorry for the quality and lack of a display behind me. Google announced a restructuring where Google is now part of a new larger company named Alphabet, Inc. But the Alphabet web site has hidden links, as a joke. Google said they would like to make interstitial a negative ranking factor. Google said they do not use user actions as a ranking factor. Google said soft 404s are the same as 404s as it can be used to discount negative links pointing to the page. Google said you can use pipes in the titles but what about the URLs. Google wants to know how SEOs detect duplicate content issues. Google’s new 3-pack local results have a new eye tracking study. Google Map Maker launched this week in six countries. Moz released their big search rankings factor study. Google Shopping has three new automated bidding solutions. And since I am in Israel, I decided to close out speaker pitches for SMX Israel. That was this week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
