Search Engine Land441,956- 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 17:00:0059G+

Google My Business Profiles Start Ranking In Non-Branded Searches

_When you perform the same search with the location set to Leeds a similar situation occurs, with enjoy-digital.co.uk appearing above Branded3.com, but yet again Branded3’s Business Profile appears in the sidebar. This looks like it might be because Enjoy Digital don’t appear to have a Google My Business profile and so Google has passed the mantle on to Branded3 for the keyword within Leeds (see below). _

Interesting observations here from +Andrew Akesson on the link between Google My Business profiles, keywords and Knowledge Panels. 

This all makes perfect sense since Google understands the geography and category via the profile and can begin to match that to query syntax. The more interesting idea is that the natural result that ranks highest may also get the Knowledge Panel treatment.

Move Over Knowledge Graph, Here Comes Knowledge Vault

AJ Kohn of SEO and marketing consultancy Blind Five Year Old commented on the details outlined in the Knowledge Vault paper, saying it shows "the various ways in which Google is extracting entities and how they validate them using prior knowledge. The real value of the process outlined is in the combination of different methods of extraction and validation to produce a far more robust and reliable database of entities."

Some stuff I said about The Knowledge Vault. Maybe I'll wind up doing a blog post on it.

My Authorship Journey

With the news that Authorship is now dead - dead parrot dead - it feels like a good time to reflect on my Authorship Journey.

I was very interested in Authorship when it first came out. I wrote a piece on how to implement the markup (http://www.blindfiveyearold.com/how-to-implement-rel-author) and then went on to write a piece on AuthorRank (http://www.blindfiveyearold.com/author-rank).

The latter was quite popular and was one of the catalysts for the popularization of the term and idea. I think +Bill Slawski probably groans looking at that piece and at the end of the day I do as well. I know I'm not responsible but I feel like I contributed to it spiraling out of control.

My Authorship Journey

With the news that Authorship is now dead - dead parrot dead - it feels like a good time to reflect on my Authorship Journey.

I was very interested in Authorship when it first came out. I wrote a piece on how to implement the markup (http://www.blindfiveyearold.com/how-to-implement-rel-author) and then went on to write a piece on AuthorRank (http://www.blindfiveyearold.com/author-rank).

The latter was quite popular and was one of the catalysts for the popularization of the term and idea. I think +Bill Slawski probably groans looking at that piece and at the end of the day I do as well. I know I'm not responsible but I feel like I contributed to it spiraling out of control.

Don't get me wrong. I'm proud of that piece and while it was a bit sensational I made sure to say that it had to be fully realized to work. I think a bunch of people missed that part. 

Yet, my work with Authorship and Google+ propelled my personal brand and authority. More people knew me and I presented at numerous conferences including SMX and MozCon. 

Authorship was very good to me. 

But search (for me) is about finding the next thing and I became to almost hate the discussion on Authorship. There were squabbles and endless picking over small SERP anomalies. I wasn't interested in that stuff and really didn't want to be known for nor be associated with Authorship to that extent. And there were other people like +Mark Traphagen who were on it and were far more patient with the community than I. 

In a fit I wrote a piece that encapsulated my frustration (http://www.blindfiveyearold.com/build-your-authority-not-your-author-rank) which was really all I was going to say on the topic until I saw what I felt was the nail in the coffin and said as much (http://www.blindfiveyearold.com/authorship-is-dead-long-live-authorship). 

I'd moved on, fully recognizing the benefits I derived from Authorship. I just didn't want to be known for that. Maybe that's completely self-centered and egotistical. But I just didn't want to answer any more questions about it. I suppose I was that singer who refuses to sing their popular early songs. #dickheads  

But I was happy doing other stuff and exploring new things and working with truly amazing clients. I took what Authorship gave me used it as a springboard. Or that's how I see it. Maybe others don't. 

So having Authorship go away is both a relief and bittersweet. It was something I loved and hated. Something that brought a certain amount of 'niche fame' that I had a hard time reconciling. 

Thanks for taking the journey with me. #authorship  ___

RIP Authorship

After three years the great Google Authorship experiment has come to an end … at least for now. Today John Mueller of Google Webmaster Tools announced in a Google+ post that Google will stop showing authorship results in Google Search, and will no longer be tracking data from content using rel=author markup.

Can't say I'm surprised. I saw the writing on the wall and jumped off this wagon more than a year ago.

Brain-Inspired Chip

The architecture can solve a wide class of problems from vision, audition, and multi-sensory fusion, and has the potential to revolutionize the computer industry by integrating brain-like capability into devices where computation is constrained by power and speed. These systems can efficiently process high-dimensional, noisy sensory data in real time, while consuming orders of magnitude less power than conventional computer architectures.

On one hand, with portable devices: think smart phones, sensor networks, self-driving automobiles, robots, public safety, medical imaging, real-time video analysis, signal processing, olfactory detection, and digital pathology.

It's a shame this write-up is inaccessible (i.e. - jargon + academic fluff + zzzzzzz) because the TrueNorth chip actually sounds very interesting.

The architecture can solve a wide class of problems from vision, audition, and multi-sensory fusion, and has the potential to revolutionize the computer industry by integrating brain-like capability into devices where computation is constrained by power and speed. These systems can efficiently process high-dimensional, noisy sensory data in real time, while consuming orders of magnitude less power than conventional computer architectures.

On one hand, with portable devices: think smart phones, sensor networks, self-driving automobiles, robots, public safety, medical imaging, real-time video analysis, signal processing, olfactory detection, and digital pathology.

It's a shame this write-up is inaccessible (i.e. - jargon + academic fluff + zzzzzzz) because the TrueNorth chip actually sounds very interesting.

Making Social Recommendations More Interesting

In simple terms, people create connections either due to common interests (topical links) or based upon common social settings such as family, work, school, etc. (social links). Our framework not only recommends new social connections, but for each suggested link it decides whether it is topical or social, and depending on this decision, the system produces a different type of explanation.

At first blush this doesn't sound too ground-breaking but as you think more about it, the ability to identify topical communities within social graphs is pretty powerful. +Yahoo! Labs is presenting this paper at KDD2014, the same conference where The Knowledge Vault will be presented by +Research at Google.

Sharing Other People's Content The Right Way

Even when you’re sharing someone else’s content, you can still make it personal by offering your own perspective.

Some of this seems like commonsense to me (such as putting your own spin on the content you share) but commonsense is often not so common, right?

However, I disagree with the last point here in asking others to share. It might work to a degree and once in a blue moon I might tell people they must read something or that a piece of content isn't getting the attention it deserves but I think it's a bad strategy to put people on the spot like this and creates a different and often uncomfortable dynamic.

Next Blog Post?

I've been trying to write more often and am enjoying it immensely. So the question is what I should write next. I have three potential topics.

The Knowledge Vault
It's the new hot thing in entity based search. There are a few things out there already on it but I could speak to what I see in it and how it relates to KGO and the march of Knowledge Panels. I'm interested but I wonder if there's enough value in just prattling on about it.

Freebase Editing Guide
I've been threatening to do this for a while now so I could document these efforts and provide some guidance on how to edit Freebase, which is still a very important part of the entity ecosystem and one of the few places where you can have a more direct impact on KGO.

Filter Bubble Rebuttal
This is the one I really feel like writing. I put it off during the PRISM brouhaha but now seems like a good time to present my case for why the Filter Bubble isn't as nefarious as it sounds and, in fact, might be a good thing. 

Is there anything else my readers might want to see that isn't on this list? Which of the above are you most interested in reading? Mind you, I may not follow the lead of my readers but I'd be a fool not to at least get some feedback and include that in my decision. 

Thanks in advance for your thoughts, comments and feedback.

Google Plus Packs a Personalized Punch

Since early 2012 Google has had as its default a highly-personalized version of search for users with a Google+ account. Among the many features of personalized search is the possibility for content to get significantly elevated rankings when it is shared or engaged with by people in your Google network (in your Google+ circles or Gmail contacts).

+Mark Traphagen is spot on here with everything in this piece. I spoke about this same power in my 2012 MozCon presentation. It's a powerful search hack for those who know how to wield it and those who aren't are likely having search traffic slowly stolen from them.

Entity Salience

http://bit.ly/1tQnKE7

Although many NLP systems are moving toward entity-based processing, most still identify important phrases using classical keyword-based approaches. To bridge this gap, we introduce the task of entity salience: assigning a relevance score to each entity in a document. We demonstrate how a labeled corpus for the task can be automatically generated from a corpus of documents and accompanying abstracts.

We then show how a classifier with features derived from a standard NLP pipeline outperforms a strong baseline by 34%. Finally, we outline initial experiments on further improving accuracy by leveraging background knowledge about the relationships between entities.

This is the paper linked to in the +Research at Google post. It's an interesting paper for a number of reasons, from the accessible nature of what they're doing to the standard NLP features applied to the very exploratory nature of it all. From my point of view it's clear Google is having fun trying to figure this entity stuff out.

Teaching Machines To Read Between The Lines

Background information about entities ought to help us decide which of them are most salient. After all, an article’s author assumes her readers have some general understanding of the world, and probably a bit about sports too. Using background knowledge, we might be able to infer that the WNBA is a salient entity in the Becky Hammon article even though it only appears once.

To encourage research on leveraging background information, we are releasing a large dataset of annotations to accompany the New York Times Annotated Corpus, including resolved Freebase entity IDs and labels indicating which entities are salient. The salience annotations are determined by automatically aligning entities in the document with entities in accompanying human-written abstracts.

Melancholy

Today was my daughter's first day of fifth grade and I'm a bit on edge. Her best friends aren't in her class this year and I remember fifth grade as a bad year - a year when kids were mean and cliques picked up real steam.

I can tell it wasn't the best of days. The slight watery edges around her eyes tell me that she's emotional but is holding it back and putting on a brave face.

But you can't just out and ask a 9--10 year old to tell you all the stuff that's bothering her. You have to wait for them to come to you and in the interim talk about things that you think will help them feel better and to process things.

Don't get me wrong. We've talked to her a lot about stuff directly and she's a very confident kid who isn't going to feel bad about herself just because of something someone else says. But ...... more »

But ... it hurts. No doubt. And maybe nothing happened and I'm projecting since my fifth grade experience was awful. I hope that's the case.

So I'm sitting here a bit paralyzed, wanting to do something, wanting to know, wanting to help. I gave her a big hug and told her she was awesome. I'm sure things will come out soon but for now it's like a lump in my throat. ___

Most smartphone users download zero apps per month

Apps now represent 52% of time spent with digital media in the US, according to comScore, up from 40% in early 2013. Apple boasted 75 billion all-time App Store downloads at its developers conference in June, and followed up by declaring July the best month ever for App Store revenue, with a record number of people downloading apps.

Yet most US smartphone owners download zero apps in a typical month, according to comScore’s new mobile app report.

An object at rest stays at rest. Replace rest with user. Friction for downloading apps is still high. And app constellations are, in some ways, a way to prevent other apps from finding screen space.

Identifying Entity Types and The Transfiguration of Google Search

Google is going to be changing how they collect and distribute information on the Web in many ways. Think of it as an evolution, though. I’m not saying that SEO is dead, but I am saying that Sergey Brin’s vision of how information from the Web is extracted, in tuples that indicate relationships, might become more commonplace as Google gets better at it.

Some nice history here from +Bill Slawski on how Google has always been interested in entities but are finally now able to act on it. If you're not planning for the change to knowledge search then you're going to be blindsided.

The Knowledge Vault

Here we introduce Knowledge Vault, a Web-scale probabilistic knowledge base that combines extractions from Web content (obtained via analysis of text, tabular data, page structure, and human annotations) with prior knowledge derived from existing knowledge repositories. We employ supervised machine learning methods for fusing these distinct information sources. The Knowledge Vault is substantially bigger than any previously published structured knowledge repository, and features a probabilistic inference system that computes calibrated probabilities of fact correctness.

It's a bit dense but if you're interested in the future of search then this is a MUST read. (http://bit.ly/1skuHfq)

This paper by a gaggle of Googlers shows the constraints of the current knowledge graph repositories and how they might expand the repository using a variety of methods.

A few things I've highlighted here are the fact that HTML trees are quite valuable. This is the actual HTML markup that is being parsed by Google and because it's on nearly all pages it provides a larger corpus of information. I'd also argue that because there is no intent behind it, the data contained is relatively clean.

The other bit I've highlighted is the use of structured data on pages which is mostly related to people (that should raise some eyebrows in and of itself). What you find is that it's still a smaller corpus and that it has a very poor confidence rate at present. So, those trying to use structured data are generally more aggressive and/or might be sending new triples into the universe so Google can't be confident about a lot of what is contained there ... yet.

This paper has far reaching implications on author based ranking, entity based ranking and the application of rich snippets and knowledge panels.

Incredible numbers when you think about the implications on when and how we search with new 'mobile' devices.

Just like Inception the further I got the stranger it got and the more difficult it was for me to 'wake up' and pull myself out of the rabbit hole.

Likewise, content mills rose to the top. Nearly my entire feed was given over to Upworthy and the Huffington Post. As I went to bed that first night and scrolled through my News Feed, the updates I saw were (in order): Huffington Post, Upworthy, Huffington Post, Upworthy, a Levi’s ad, Space.com, Huffington Post, Upworthy, The Verge, Huffington Post, Space.com, Upworthy, Space.com.

Gardens Not Graves

Problem is, the stream’s emphasis on the new above all else imposes a short lifespan on content. Like papers piled on your desk, the stream makes it easy to find the last thing you’ve added, while anything older than a day effectively disappears. Solely relying on reverse-chronology turns our websites into graveyards, where things pile up atop each other until they fossilize. We need to start treating our websites as gardens, as places worthy of cultivation and renewal, where new things can bloom from the old.

This is true and I sooooooo need to do this on my own site. Just have to carve out the time and get it done. In particular I know that there are many outdated pieces, some that are still good but need a facelift and still others that should get more exposure to new readers.

How We Read

Just because something is legible doesn’t mean it’s readable. Legibility means that text can be interpreted, but that’s like saying tree bark is edible. We’re aiming higher. Readability combines the emotional impact of a design (or lack thereof ) with the amount of effort it presumably takes to read. You’ve heard of TL;DR (too long; didn’t read)? Length isn’t the only detractor to reading; poor typography is one too. To paraphrase Stephen Coles, the term readability doesn’t ask simply, “Can you read it?” but “Do you want to read it?”

So I am pretty much in love with this piece from +Jason Santa Maria. As someone who is pushing extremely hard on readability as a key component of content, SEO and digital marketing in general, this excerpt provides a metric ton of great information and insight.

From my perspective the key to successful digital marketing campaigns is being remembered and creating a positive mental habit for users. Of course you can only get there if the content is read!

Google Answer Box Observational Data

Of the many factors that might influence the “distribution”, one that comes to mind almost instantly is the SERP ranking. So we split the websites according to this criteria, and look and behold, websites that were found on the first position in the organic results accounted for a third (33%) of all answer box information. The top 5 pages accounted for more than three quarters (77%) of the answers. There was just 1 answer out of the total 1 236 that came from a page not in the top 10 (statistically, that’s less than 0.1%). So rankings matter.

I wouldn't say the algorithm has been decoded but there is a great deal of good observational data and insight here. I wish the real nuggets found were presented more prominently though.

Dominate With Early-Stage Content

When targeting based on intent, ask yourself “does my content truly engage readers based on what they are looking to accomplish today?”

100% agree with this post by +Max Gerschman but am amazed that this isn't the norm. What have you been doing if you haven't been producing content that matches all types of query intent?

How Entities (and Knowledge Cards) Can Help With Query Intent

Search history plays a role in results. It uses keywords, and ideally entities, to see relationships through queries. A query like “animal,” “panthera,” and “wild animal” is related to Jaguar. Specifically, a query like “panthera,” followed by a new search for “jaguar” gives a different result. The Jaguar car listings, ads, and knowledge card are supressed, for an option where one can click to refine their search.

+Bill Sebald touches on some things I'll be talking about soon, the disambiguation of intent using query history and the aggregation of intent through Knowledge Cards.
