Search Engine Land441,895- 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+

curator Circle0As promised yesterday, here is the #CuratorCircleEdition  4Wisdom of this circle: Take time to view the profile of those you add if you care for the quality of the content shared on G+!Some of you that show interest to be included in the circle will not find themselves in. It is not an hazard; the minimum one can do while asking for inclusion in a shared circle is to include the sharer page or profile. Also due to the maximum space of 500 profiles, others have been kept for the next circle.Rules of the circle:1. Plus and share the circle (add me if you haven't done it yet)2. Comment to ask for inclusion. And enjoy your day.2014-05-06 13:53:46501361223CC G+

I hope that you will take the time to have a look at these people, and see if they can enrich your Google+ experiences as they have for me.As always, I remind you that I do not blindly add people to my circles and suggest that you do not as well. People I have circled fall into one of 3 categories:1. People I learn from2. People who engage with me and get to know me3.

Ian Archibald19,730People I Learn FromWe all have people we like to learn from, who we might look up to to act as a mentor and people we connect with.  This share is people who meet these criteria for me.I haven't crafted any circle shares of late, and those who remember the shares that I created during Christmas took a lot of effort - sorting through 100's of posts, locating the top people/posts/engagement, etc.  The last significant one I did took me over 7 hours to produce.  I really enjoy creating them, but alas I don't have that much time.Who's in this circle?A lot of people you likely know and may already have circled. There are educators, scientists, speakers, developers, SEO Experts and just plain awesome people.I know many people like to add rules to their circle shares. Personally, I don't. There are many reasons for this, but let's just say, I don't like spam and the countless BS Community requests that surely follow. In short, don't blindly add people just for the sake of doing so.How Can I Get Into This Circle?I don't add people blindly.  Each person in this list has been vetted. If there needs to be some rules to end up here...• Be active - No activity = no circle.• Create Quality Content - I want to hear what you have to say• Be Original - Be Awesome• Engage with people. If you're not being seen, who will find you?Hope you all have a great week!2014-03-31 01:02:36186182223CC G+

What Happened When I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days

My News Feed took on an entirely new character in a surprisingly short amount of time. After checking in and liking a bunch of stuff over the course of an hour, there were no human beings in my feed anymore. It became about brands and messaging, rather than humans with messages.

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.

What seems clear is that the Liking of branded (ad revenue) content is weighted higher than Liking of personal (non-ad revenue) content. ... more »

Algorithm Inception: Inside The Rich Snippets Algorithm

Here's what I know about the rich snippets algorithm based on observation and conjecture as well as statements from Google representatives. I'll also sketch out some theories on how Google might be replacing many rich snippets with Knowledge Graph panels and carousels.

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.

Yahoo Labs and The Future of Content Consumption

Yahoo has been rebuilding its research focus, and now a 250-person strong Yahoo Labs is trying to build the future of content. Full of experts in everything from personalization to deep learning, the group wants to make finding and consuming content as easy as possible.

I'm not sure if the problem is with the piece itself or Yahoo  but there is more fluff here than on a fluffernutter sandwich. I like the direction and the ideas Yahoo's talking about but they've got to start walking the walk instead of talking the talk.

Close variant matching for all exact and phrase keywords

Starting in late September, we’re applying close variant keyword matching to all exact and phrase match keywords. Because close variant matching was already the default setting for campaigns, most of you won’t see a change in your keyword matching behavior. For advertisers that opted out, the option to disable close variants will be removed in September. Your exact and phrase match keywords will then begin matching to close keyword variations, allowing you to reach more of your potential customers with the right ad while aiming to lower cost per click and improve clickthrough rate.

Essentially a big middle-finger to those of you who were smarter than everyone else and implementing sophisticated exact and phrase match campaigns.

Serendipity

So today I get a notification that +Adam Stein plus'd my old share of Lazy Monday (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AJKohn/posts/gr2gRcevSbK), which I still watch and sing along to once every few months.

And I got to learn more about him during his stint on the reality show On The Lot (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0790557/) and remembered his other collaboration with Mark Feuerstein (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0790557/) which was also hilarious. 

So I click over to see if it's the real Adam Stein, which it looks like it is and he's got Ingress stuff all over it! Now, I've recently retired but played obsessively for 2 years. #dontsuckmebackin  

Somewhere Kevin Bacon is stroking his cat and smiling.

What Happened When I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days

My News Feed took on an entirely new character in a surprisingly short amount of time. After checking in and liking a bunch of stuff over the course of an hour, there were no human beings in my feed anymore. It became about brands and messaging, rather than humans with messages.

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.

What seems clear is that the Liking of branded (ad revenue) content is weighted higher than Liking of personal (non-ad revenue) content. ... more »

Facebook Closes The Door on Like-Gates

You must not incentivize people to use social plugins or to like a Page. This includes offering rewards, or gating apps or app content based on whether or not a person has liked a Page.

It's about bloody time!

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.

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.

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.

Why Aren't App Constellations Working?

It has been interesting to watch as Dropbox, Facebook, and Foursquare experiment with this approach – but it doesn’t seem to be working, at least not yet. CB Insights shared some discouraging data last month, and things have only gotten worse over the past few weeks for the most recent apps to be put out by these big players

A nice round-up of different perspectives and insight here. In my view the issue comes down to whether the replacement cost exceeds the perceived benefit. So, is it worth my time and effort to download, learn and potentially replace other apps with this new one? 

For Facebook Messenger is works because ... the product won't exist in the other app and you still want to message folks and you understand how to use it from the word go. Small replacement cost, high benefit. For Foursquare Swarm ...well... more »

HTTPS as a Ranking Signal

For these reasons, over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms. We've seen positive results, so we're starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal. For now it's only a very lightweight signal — affecting fewer than 1% of global queries, and carrying less weight than other signals such as high-quality content — while we give webmasters time to switch to HTTPS. But over time, we may decide to strengthen it, because we’d like to encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.

In the end, it really is a win-win even though some will see it as Google playing 'nanny-state' for webmasters.

ccTLD Search Engine Results Study

This shows us that Google prioritizes quality information over local content. At least this appears to be Google’s philosophy. Anecdotally, other SEO’s in LATAM are very frustrated by the current situation which seems to tilt the scales in favor of foreign websites with more overall authority, rather than websites that specialize in serving specific markets.

Good stuff here from +Zeph Snapp as he looks at the landscape for latin american search.

It makes sense that they'd show up in this way since the engagement on the platform would lead to more familiarity and relevance with author photos. Thanks for including me +Aaron Friedman!

How Fonts Affect User Experience

A few weeks ago, I decided to find out how much of an impact fonts have on UX.

Through a series of split test experiments, I managed to improve my site’s engagement by 38%. I did this by changing nothing but the font styling of the site.

This is such an overlooked optimization technique. Fonts are powerful.

Progressive Content for Progressive Reduction

A key element of creating a usable content strategy is identifying what information users need, and when. This week, author Ben Barone-Nugent digs deep into what information users need, as he presents the idea of progressive reduction, and explains how the concept can impact the way we build our content strategies.

The idea of progressive reduction is quite powerful and leads to a type of personalization based on the user's savvy of that site or application. Mapping feature presentation and content to level of expertise is just smart.

How Hamburger Menus Can Increase Your Conversion Rate

The way to maintain a high conversion rate and user experience is to replace your navigation with a hamburger menu. The icon doesn’t distract users from their task, and still gives them the freedom to go back to other pages. Text links draw a lot of attention, but when they’re inside the hamburger menu, users will only use them when they want to.

For general navigation I'm not a fan of the burger icon but for conversion rate purposes it makes a lot of sense. Reduce distraction and focus the user on task completion.

Yelp lied about review policies to inflate stock price?

Yelp, a site that lets consumers post reviews of local businesses, allowed fake negative reviews to remain on its website in order to extract advertising money from local businesses, according to a class action complaint filed Wednesday in San Francisco.

Here are a few of the more interesting experiments OkCupid has run.

There's a lot of truth to this statement. If you're a marketer you're always doing something to change consumer behavior. The only debate is really how far those test go and with what intent they're conducted.
