Joshua Berg35,536On Aug 28th Google announced termination of the Authorship program, via an announcement from *John Mueller.* goo.gl/QgyUSH *[This HOA Special is TODAY, see event for local time.]* To say this came as a shock to many loyal Google authorship fans & Google+ users would be an understatement. Needless to say there are lots of questions being asked about what all this means... Why did this happen? What does it mean for authors, for SEO & ranking? What about Author Rank, or Agent Rank, are they still coming? What's going to replace authorship & what about schema.org & other markup? So on very short notice, I decided to see if we could get the experts together on this, share our thoughts & answer your questions. Amazingly within a few hours & at the end of the week, we'd reworked our schedules & planned this event. Although I'm pretty sure this panel of well known industry thought leaders don't need an introduction, I'd like to say very special thanks to them all for coming. So a warm welcome to @107022061436866576067, @113690073826160821557, @115620878851836664537, @115106448444522478339 & @102572320061138442096. All are welcome to come & bring your questions. I also recommend the following related posts: *My Q&A with John Mueller On Ending Authorship* goo.gl/Ntdi9Q *The End of the (First) Authorship Era* goo.gl/tCXIzq *It's Over: The Rise & Fall Of Google Authorship For Search Results* goo.gl/zrpuhp #Authorship #SEO #EndOfAuthorship  The End of Google Authorship! - Now What?!2014-09-05 22:40:0061  
Eric Enge21,417What?  What do I mean by that?

"Google’s unfair to my site," respond those hit by penalties. "Google should remove certain negative results for a politician, a company, a person," some might think, only to have others view any meddling as some type of overt bias. For every action Google might take, there might be an equally negative reaction or repercussion. That’s why the company thinks carefully about any search policy it puts into place. In this session, Google search policy specialist Patrick Thomas looks at some of the decisions Google has to make and the careful balancing act it has to maintain. *Tune in to the Google+ Hangout On Air* here on the Search Engine Land Google+ page, or you can watch on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/searchengineland Please use the #smx hashtag to join the discussion. This session is open for all conference and Expo+ pass holders.SMX West Evening Forum: Walk A Mile In Google’s Shoes: Dealing With Tough Calls In Organic Search2013-03-11 17:00:0059

An Emerging Science of Clickbait

Every emotion occupies a point in this Valence-Arousal-Dominance parameter space.

Guerini and Staiano’s idea is that it is not an emotion itself that determines virality but its position in this parameter space.

Some very interesting results here on what type of pieces get comments and what type of pieces get shared.

Google Removes Search Filters for Visited Pages

Google has quietly removed the features that allowed you to restrict results to visited pages and pages you haven't visited yet. "Visited pages" and "not yet visited" are no longer included in the search tools menu.

I still see the 'visited' messaging within the SERP which seems to indicate that it's still an important feature. In general, re-finding content is a big deal in search. So what I can only assume is that Google believes that the UI convention of these filters isn't doing the job.

A Troll-Spotting Algorithm

Interestingly, Cheng and co say that the differences between messages posted by people who are later banned and those who are not is so clear that it is relatively straightforward to spot them using a machine learning algorithm. “In fact, we only need to observe five to 10 user posts before a classifier is able to make a reliable prediction,” they boast.

This could be a real boon to making comments and community more productive. Interesting that they note that trolls "tend to write poorer quality posts to start off with. And not only that, the quality of their posts decreases with time."

Understanding Rank Potential

Rank potential is an analytical approach to understanding where a given webpage can actually rank in organic search, with respect to two axes of consideration; time and investment*.

Great analytic approach here taken by +Nick Eubanks. My only nit here is that I think it's potentially too liberal in the projections. In my experience competitors rarely stand still within the time period in question (i.e - 12-18 months). And for the verticals in question (and others) you'd want to identify those who are in the algorithmic doghouse. Nothing like a Panda update to bump a competitor back into the SERPs and kill your projections.

But in the scheme of things you're about 16 steps ahead of your competition if you're even attempting to do something like this.

Get Satisfaction Founder Gets Nothing From Acquisition

"We took a $10 million investment very prematurely," Becker told Business Insider during a phone call Monday. "At the time we were entertaining some acquisition offers. In hindsight, they would have been wise acquisition offers to take. The executive team got stars in their eyes about the money and took the investment. When you raise $10 million at a $50 million valuation, that is a serious promise you're making with your business."

I wish more entrepreneurs would talk about the reality of startup life like +Lane Becker does in his series of Tweets. Few seem willing to share the failures and heartache unless they can somehow spin it into a 'what I learned' or 'rising from the ashes' type of meme.

I'm not saying that there aren't successes or that you shouldn't go the venture capital route. But it's not easy and many founders find that they're good at creating a business but not scaling it. I think more discussion about how to get value from those creations in this environment would be useful.

Hard Data on Google+ Activity

The debate on the activity level on Google+ has raged for years. How many users are really active on it? Is the place a ghost town? Why hasn’t Google shut it down already? Well, I decided to put it to the test, so I did a hardcore analysis of 516,246 randomly selected Google+ profiles, and this post has the scoop for you. Sit down and fasten your seat belts because here we go!

I'm sure many will look at this data and say that Google+ is dead. But in reality it seems to be following the 90-9-1 principle pretty closely. And that's actually impressive since Google 'forces' Google+ registration in some ways through sign-in to their services. 

This also shows how important it is to understand the level of engagement when determining active users. Someone who never looks at Google+ would be inactive. What about someonewh... more »

This also shows how important it is to understand the level of engagement when determining active users. Someone who never looks at Google+ would be inactive. What about someone who looks at the stream but doesn't + or comment? How about those who just +1? And those that +1 and comment?

I'd be far more interested to learn about the level of engagement of those currently in the 'lurker' category. Because if there is some level of engagement there is an opportunity to encourage and deepen that engagement in the future, should Google decide to focus on that metric.

The Incredible Shrinking SERP

The definition of "organic" is blurring, and I think that all of these vertical results represent SEO opportunities that can't be ignored. If we're stuck in the mindset of only one "true" organic, then our opportunities are going to keep shrinking every day.

Really great stuff here from +Pete Meyers, though there was one observation noted that I think was radically under-played and not talked about in the comments at all.

The Incredible Shrinking SERP

The Reason Growth Hacking Works Has Nothing To Do With Growth Hacking

Growth hacking skills are nothing new but simply a rebranding exercise for tech-savvy marketers sick of being marginalized. But growth hacking only works when an organization blows up functional silos and allows these individuals to seek growth anywhere in the company.

The Science Behind Quality Content

Only a third of the world’s largest companies have quality site content based on human factors like style and clarity and tone of voice (in addition to basics like grammar and spelling.)

This study from +Acrolinx is interesting. I'm not sure it takes into account factors such as the golden ratio of typography, font hierarchy or use of images but I like that the focus seems to be on readability. Because you can't get engagement, can't get remembered, if you aren't getting read.

Social Login Trends: Q1 2015

Q1 of 2015, however, saw that gap widen yet again: Google’s share fell 3% to 37%, as Facebook’s rose 2% to 45%. While both identity providers (IDPs) enjoy little overall competition from other large social networks like Twitter (5%), Yahoo (3%) and LinkedIn (3%), vertical volatility continues to reflect shifting consumer preferences, as different IDPs offer different advantages across different types of sites.

The Google+ momentum was stopped and Facebook has once again widened their gap. The question is whether Google is going to continue to push for being the an identity service.

Adult Problems Stink

But every time I see a friend, be it Drew or Sid or Julia or Justin, ask the world for help, I see the world answer strongly with a Yes. And that's what's so impressive about our hyperconnected planet now. I feel I really know these friends who I don't see every day. I can feel their pains and champion their successes, root for their wins and console them on losses. When Drew put the weight of the world on his back in 2009, he didn't take enough time to take care of himself. As his friend (and a friend to many of you), I can say if you are struggling, you should know you're not the only one. Ask others to help distribute the pain. We can't make it go away, but you can know we care and we will help you fight.

I failed to share this piece when +Louis Gray wrote it early this year but it's been hanging out in my Saved Items in Feedly like a beacon. 

I share Louis' dismay at adult problems and also his hope when it comes to the Internet and how it can connect, unite and support those who are struggling. And you know what, everyone struggles in some way or another.

We're all figuring hard stuff out. When it gets really tough that's when we can help each other with actions and even words.

The Impact of IP Host Location on Your Site SEO

It’s pretty clear that a UK company using a “.com” or non UK specific domain should host in the UK. I was lucky enough to be able to test this change quite easily and saw some very interesting behaviors. You should carry out your own tests before making any decisions about your hosting though!

A great accidental case study (the best kind in my book) here by +Richard Baxter.

Decoupling Society

I believe we need to decouple growth from the notion of progress. In the future, I believe we’ll need to decouple many more aspects of society to as we evolve to new levels of collective consciousness.

I like a lot of what +Hao Chen proposes here even if it is a bit utopian in nature. But why not have stretch goals? Even if we were to fall short in some of these goals, getting close would make a tremendous impact on quality of life.

Perhaps it's because I'm reading some +Ramez Naam at the moment, but it does seem like there's a potential turning point in the near future.

Generation X is Sick of Your Bullshit

The first generation to do worse than its parents? Please. Been there. Generation X was told that so many times that it can't even read those words without hearing Winona Ryder's voice in its heads. Or maybe it's Ethan Hawke's. Possibly Bridget Fonda's. Generation X is getting older, and can't remember those movies so well anymore. In retrospect, maybe they weren't very good to begin with.

I'm sorry I missed this piece by +Mathew Honan back in 2011 because it's tremendously like totally good.

Google's Mobile Friendly Algo Will only Affect "Ten Blue Links"

Yes, the new mobile ranking algorithm will only apply to the organic “ten blue links” and not any other results that are included within various search queries.

While I'm not surprised at this news I think the statements by +Gary Illyes should be parsed and looked at closely. The specific mobile-friendly algorithm set to launch later this month won't impact other SERP units. But that doesn't mean that mobile factors aren't baked into those other areas now, nor does it mean that mobile won't impact them in the (near) future.

Deep Networks for Video Classification

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have recently shown rapid progress in advancing the state of the art of detecting and classifying objects in static images, automatically learning complex features in pictures without the need for manually annotated features. But what if one wanted not only to identify objects in static images, but also analyze what a video is about? After all, a video isn’t much more than a string of static images linked together in time.

Some really interesting work here on identifying and classifying video content. I wonder how long it will take for these advancements to make their way into the search quality algorithm.

Why People "Fly from Facts"

Our new research, recently published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, examined a slippery way by which people get away from facts that contradict their beliefs. Of course, sometimes people just dispute the validity of specific facts. But we find that people sometimes go one step further and, as in the opening example, they reframe an issue in untestable ways. This makes potential important facts and science ultimately irrelevant to the issue.

When the facts don't line up with your beliefs, simply make the case that facts don't matter!

I'm not saying we should ignore things that are happening around us but I find it discouraging to see so much energy - so many posts and so many rabbit hole arguments ensue - on the negative. 

I know life isn't all rainbows and marshmallows but I think a lot of people would be happier if they chose to engage in more positive interactions.

Penguin and Panda Algorithms Still Require Manual Data Pushes

It has been over 4 months since a Google Penguin or Panda update and Google's John Mueller tells us the data updates are currently done manually.

I was a bit snarky with my comments on Twitter but, really, it's pretty obvious this is the case. If you deal with any client impacted by Panda you know there hasn't been an update.

Because the odds that a 'rolling update' were in place and hadn't created a few notable Panda Jail pardons was pretty astronomical. Hence, there is no rolling update and we're all waiting for a rescoring and data push.

And here's where some of you are going to get upset. The fact that +Matt Cutts is no longer around (actively) is a probable reason for what I feel is a lackadaisical approach to these updates. Believe it or not Matt was... more »

I personally think he took this role seriously and wanted to help. But even if you look at it selfishly, getting hate at every event he showed up to about the topic would probably be motivation to prioritize an update at the next meeting.

An Emerging Science of Clickbait

Every emotion occupies a point in this Valence-Arousal-Dominance parameter space.

Guerini and Staiano’s idea is that it is not an emotion itself that determines virality but its position in this parameter space.

Some very interesting results here on what type of pieces get comments and what type of pieces get shared.
