Search Engine Land442,025- Moderator: +Danny Sullivan, Founding Editor, +Marketing Land and +Search Engine Land - +Matt Cutts, Distinguished Engineer, +Google - +Patrick Thomas, Policy Specialist, +Google Everyone, it seems, has an opinion of what Google should do. “Google should remove links to pirated content!,” cries Hollywood. “Censorship!”, cry internet activists. “Google should ban spammy web sites!,” cry searchers. "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/searchenginelandPlease 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

Google Releases Penguin 3.0

Google verified to us today that this has happened, when we asked about it. Google hasn’t yet given more details on the percentage of search results the latest version of Penguin has impacted or if there were any major changes made to it since the last release.

A typical Friday rollout which was completed on Monday.

Google Might Use SERP Snippets To Answer Questions

One important element of this patent is that it looks for mentions of entities in snippets and search results to answer questions.

How very meta and recursive of Google. Taking advantage of their own search ranking technology to then look for entities and fact based answers. Fascinating stuff shared here by +Bill Slawski.

Google Pirate 2.0

In August 2012 we first announced that we would downrank sites for which we received a large number of valid DMCA notices. We’ve now refined the signal in ways we expect to visibly affect the rankings of some of the most notorious sites. This update will roll out globally starting next week.

Not only that but they'll begin removing terms from autocomplete suggestions that frequently feature DMCA demoted sites.

10 Mistakes Doing SEO For A Decade

I’d like to tell you about them so that you don’t repeat my stupid blunders. Learning from mistakes is not limited to your own ones, you can learn from mine too.

I agree with most of these listed by +Tadeusz Szewczyk, in particular about not charging enough (that's a big mistake by many in this industry) and providing content solely to others (I've been pretty clear on my stance on this point.)

My only disagreement is on the 'paid by results' bit. While getting out of the hourly cycle is great I'm not keen on performance based payment since there are too many factors involved in success. But project based, retainer and equity payments are nice ways to scale.

Growing a Following from Nothing

The reality is that most social media campaigns won’t really deliver any real results until you’ve got a fair few months into them. Even then, depending on what niche you’re in, it can take much longer. The most important thing to remember is to keep focused.

There's a lot to like in this piece by +Matthew Barby. In particular, the determination to stick to your strategy and to reach out to those in your community (in the right way).

4 Ways to Build Trust and Humanize Your Brand

When a brand is able to make a sincere connection with a consumer, something incredibly powerful happens. Beyond mere fleeting impact, that moment of connection provides a foundation for long-term advocacy, loyalty, and a sustainable bottom line.

Really good stuff here from +Mackenzie Fogelson on humanizing a brand. At the end of the day it's about 'showing' (as in 'show don't tell') your authenticity.

Video Shows Botnet Advertising Malware In Action

In 24 hours, the bot had generated over 10,000 impressions from both video and display ads from the single computer. Taking the Chameleon botnet as an example, if this bot were distributed across 120,000 machines, that quickly adds up to more than 1.2 billion fraudulent ad impressions a day.

This is both amazing and ridiculously scary.

Twitter Timeline Changes

For example, we recently ran experiments that showed different types of content in your timeline: recommended Tweets, accounts and topics. Testing indicated that most people enjoy seeing Tweets from accounts they may not follow, based on signals such as activity from accounts you do follow, the popularity of the Tweets, and how people in your network interact with them. These experiments now inform the timeline you see today.

I know some purists are going insane about this change but from what I can tell this is a slightly nuanced FOAF implementation, something I'm a very big fan of and will work.

Google Webmaster Tools Site-Move Tool Updated

Looks to me as if the UX has been updated with better explanation and tips but there's no additional features (such as folder based migrations). 

#seo   #googlewebmastertools  

Just updated: the site-move tool in Webmaster Tools

If you're moving your site from one domain to another, the Change of Address tool in Webmaster Tools is a great way to let Google know. We just updated it to guide you through a part of the process, double-checking that you have the sites verified, that the redirects are in place, and that the redirect doesn't break verification. We hope this tool makes it a bit easier to move to a different domain, should you want to do that, and a bit harder to make mistakes along the way :-). 

You can find out more about our recommendations when moving your website at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/83105___Google Webmaster Tools Site-Move Tool Updated

Yahoo Going Beyond Clicks For Personalization

This research from the Personalization Science team at Yahoo Labs shows that content recommendation models perform better when using dwell based metrics.

This doesn't surprise me and is in line with the +Upworthy Attention Minutes metric. Some super interesting nuggets here about user behavior with different types of content and where it's being consumed.

Google's Biggest Search Competitor is Amazon

Many people think our main competition is Bing or Yahoo. But, really, our biggest search competitor is Amazon. People don’t think of Amazon as search, but if you are looking for something to buy, you are more often than not looking for it on Amazon. They are obviously more focused on the commerce side of the equation, but, at their roots, they are answering users’ questions and searches, just as we are.

That's what Google's +Eric Schmidt says and it's been that way for a very long time.

Google 'In The News' Box No Longer Just From Google News Sources

Google told us that Google News sites are not the only stories than can show in the new news box named "In The News"

This is welcome news (pun intended) but I notice that certain sites are starting to disappear or at least be limited (i.e. - Reddit). Intriguing change which has larger implications for journalism and news optimization.

The Great Knowledge Box Showdown

Google Now (this was the Google App running on the iPhone) returns twice as many results as Siri and nearly three times as many results as Cortana. This is clear evidence that Google is much further down the path with this type of work than either Apple or Cortana. As noted above, Bing, using text-based search queries, returns knowledge boxes for more types of results than Cortana does at this time.

I'm pretty sure you've seen this already since this work by +Stone Temple Consulting (+Mark Traphagen and Eric Enge who I can't seem to at right now.) In fact, my wife mentioned to me in passing as some research she'd heard some radio DJs discussing.

Google Now (this was the Google App running on the iPhone) returns twice as many results as Siri and nearly three times as many results as Cortana. This is clear evidence that Google is much further down the path with this type of work than either Apple or Cortana. As noted above, Bing, using text-based search queries, returns knowledge boxes for more types of results than Cortana does at this time.

I'm pretty sure you've seen this already since this work by +Stone Temple Consulting (+Mark Traphagen and Eric Enge who I can't seem to at right now.) In fact, my wife mentioned to me in passing as some research she'd heard some radio DJs discussing.

Snowball

I personally use at least six different messaging clients (including unconventional ones like Twitter DM) throughout the day. It’s a chore to figure out who I’m talking to where. And it gets worse seemingly everyday with new apps constantly popping up.

That’s the first battle Snowball is choosing to fight.

Adium for messaging apps? Sounds good to me.

Organic Click-Through Rates in 2014

Getting back to desktop search, our most recent research from August 2014, suggests that the top five organic results account for approximately 65% of the clicks.  So the findings from Advanced Web Ranking and Mediative’s own research are quite close.  In fact, as taken from our own research here is the breakdown of the click data and how it’s distributed across the different elements of the SERP.

Nice history and aggregation of SERP CTR studies here that show the continuing value of organic search.

Some Non-Obvious Advice on Thought Leadership

I don’t particularly like the phrase “thought leader” or “thought leadership” for two reasons: 1) just thinking about something doesn’t make you a leader, nor does being a leader enable you to simply think about things AND 2) the term has pretentious and sometimes negative associations. When I hear people describe me that way, I have a viscerally uncomfortable reaction. I kinda wish the terminology would go away.

That said, at the recent Foundry CEO Summit, a number of the CEOs asked me to talk about and share my “secrets to becoming a thought leader” in the marketing space.

Great stuff here from +Rand Fishkin on thought leadership. I too am (was?) uncomfortable with that term but I've become more willing to accept it when it's attached to me. But I digress.

If I had to boil down what I think really helps from this piece there are four things: consistent, authentic, likable, memorable. 

First off you have to be consistent (#4) and not give up. Whiteboard Friday is a consistent and expected piece of content. That's super powerful.

Authentic (#1,5,10) includes a lot of the 'thinking' aspects as well as what people call 'great' or 'valuable' content. But even if you're wrong or you're taking a side you're being YOU. You're being authentic. There are far too many unwilling to believe in their own opinions so those that do and communicate them in a likable (#6) and memorable (#3) way are well on their way to thought leadership-ville.

Why Google Analytics User Metrics are BS [For Most Sites]

User/visitor-based KPIs have never reflected actual users. They’ve only ever reflected clients (IOW, the combination of device and browser you visited the site from), making reporting on them a waste of pixels.

I agree with +Annie Cushing that the user reports are flawed because of this fracture of 'user'. And I regularly rely on session based reports. But I do keep tabs on the trends in user reports and as I do so I have to interpret how much I think they're being influenced by device fracture versus loyalty. 

The user_id feature is wicked powerful in Universal Analytics but I fear the complexity means most won't implement it. But you should follow the link in this post to the one by +Justin Cutroni on this topic.

You are not your browser history

Although many of the assumptions that were made about me based on my ad history were wrong, few were groundless. I’m not Jewish. However, we’ve been working on a project for the Museum of Jewish History so I’ve been visiting a lot of websites for Jewish cultural organizations. I don’t live in Los Angeles, but I was there for a conference, and did do a lot of local LA browsing. I’m not a big gamer, but I’ve been following the politics of the gaming community fairly closely over the last few months.

Um, this sort of disproves the piece in most ways. Sure your interest in Judiasm is because of work but it is interest none-the-less. If you're following the politics of gaming then ... you're tangentially interested in gaming. Are the assumptions marketers making here correct?

No. But they're still using a pretty blunt instrument. 

While I don't think your browser history is who you are it certainly does represent parts of who you are and your past and present interests. Saying otherwise simply means you're browsing behavior is random or that you're a sociopath I guess. 

So I'd argue that it's the marketing data algorithms that are really what is misrepresenting things here. I recall Amazon struggling with people who would buy gifts for others but not acknowledge they're gifts. Does my purchase of a Taggies blanket mean I have a new child or am I gifting it once I receive it? 

It's problematic but the access to data and deep learning algorithms might get us a lot closer to the reality. So perhaps they would understand which of the sites I visit because of my work and which I visit for personal reasons.

Google Turns to Deep Learning to Fight Web Spam

A deep network can be effectively used to classify resources into categories. For example, resources can be effectively classified as being spam or not spam, as being one of several different types of spam, or as being one of two or more resource types.

Deep learning was one of the things that I saw as a component of Hummingbird. (http://bit.ly/whatdoesthehummingbirdsay) I would expect to see a number of deep learning patents emerge over the next few years as a result of this new capability.

Yahoo AOL Merger?

Starboard “believes a combination between Yahoo’s Core Search and Display Businesses and AOL Could Result in up to $1 Billion of Synergies While Also Potentially Facilitating the Realization of Value from Yahoo’s Non-Core Equity Stakes.”

Wow is this a bad idea. Take two companies both with decades of operating incompetence and just mash them together and hope for the best. +Marissa Mayer is at least trying to steer the Titanic away from the iceberg but steering a ship that big takes time. The question is whether 'the market' will give her that time.

How Ads Influence Organic CTR

We found that on average, the presence of ads on a search results page caused the organic CTR of the first position to drop by 30% — from 25.7% organic CTR in the absence of ads to 17.9% CTR when ads are displayed.

Really interesting research here by +Philip Petrescu on Google SERP CTR. There are a lot of ways to interpret this data but one thing is clear to me - the way in which people interact with search has and continues to change.

Udi Manber Moves to YouTube as Head of Search

Manber joined Google back in 2006 after several years working at Amazon, where he was CEO of A9.com, Amazon’s early attempt at developing its own search engine. Prior to that, he was chief scientist at Yahoo (starting there in 1998).

A move like this isn't just for giggles and is a sign of Google's plans and focus over the next few years.

The Boring Designer

Choose the obvious over clever every time.

When given the choice between hiding things on hover or displaying them right away, the boring designer always chooses the latter. Sure, it might be harder to achieve that perfect visual balance your graphic design teachers drilled into you, but you love a good challenge, right? You value your users' experience over your own. Maybe you wince a little at the “compromises” you’ve made, but your users are benefiting and that’s all that matters.
