Search Engine Land442,171- 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

First Week of Chemo

It hasn't been awful but ... it hasn't been fun either. Seriously fatigued, aching all over and a sour stomach the entire time. But like Rocky, I can take a few punches and still win the match. Feeling a good deal better today and hoping to see continued progress tomorrow.

Day 1 of Chemo

Yesterday was the first day of my chemotherapy regimen. The full diagnosis for those of you interested is Grade 1, Stage IV Follicular Lymphoma, with growths in the mesenteric and retroperitoneal regions (stomach and intestinal areas) and 2.4% involvement in my bone marrow (which is quite low actually.)

Day one consists of a slow drip of Rituxan which is a targeted antigen that seeks out and destroys the CD20 protein which is what is running out of control. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rituximab) 

No issues with the Rituxan (some are allergic or don't tolerate it well) so next time it will be given much faster. Near the end of the day I received Bendamustine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bendamustine) which is the far better drug than the alternative (better effectiveness and far less toxic.) 

Very little side effects yesterday withju... more »

Helping users find mobile-friendly pages

Starting today, to make it easier for people to find the information that they’re looking for, we’re adding a “mobile-friendly” label to our mobile search results.

I've been telling clients for the last two months that mobile signals are being tested and will be increasing in importance over the next year. This is just one more indication of that reality.

Don't Be a Metrics Slave

I love metrics, but I’ll never be a slave to them.  Far too often in business I see people who are metrics slaves.  Instead of mastering metrics to optimize the business, the metrics become the master and the manager a slave.

Quite a bit of amazing advice here. #business   #analytics

Facebook Brand Blackmail

“It’s a clear message to brands: If you want to sound like an advertiser, buy an ad,” said Rebecca Lieb, a digital advertising and media analyst at the Altimeter Group.

So those updates from your favorite TV Show that pop up in your feed? See ya! I get that these are promotional in nature but if users wanted them in the first place, why exactly are you throttling them? Oh right. Profits.

Always Gamble On An Empty Stomach

Three experimental studies examined the counterintuitive hypothesis that hunger improves strategic decision making, arguing that people in a hot state are better able to make favorable decisions involving uncertain outcomes. Studies 1 and 2 demonstrated that participants with more hunger or greater appetite made more advantageous choices in the Iowa Gambling Task compared to sated participants or participants with a smaller appetite. Study 3 revealed that hungry participants were better able to appreciate future big rewards in a delay discounting task; and that, in spite of their perception of increased rewarding value of both food and monetary objects, hungry participants were not more inclined to take risks to get the object of their desire. Together, these studies for the first time provide evidence that hot states improve decision making under... more »

Fascinating stuff here that runs a bit counter-intuitive to assumptions.

Facebook Launches New Places Directory

Facebook has launched a new Places Directory, which is really an emerging local search site. Right now, it’s more accurately like “guided browsing.”

I give Facebook credit here, they're very clearly targeting the 'Things To Do In [City]' query class and have a strategy around crawl efficiency.

Understanding Question/Query Answering in Search

With the shift from search-over-documents to search-over-data comes a new set of challenges for search marketers. How can we create interesting and relevant content that will both surface in SERPs and also elicit a desired action?

Some good examples here from +Barbara Starr on how marked-up information architecture can produce big wins for search.

Twitter's Renewed Focus on SEO Generated 10X Un-Auth Visitors

Twitter’s director of product management Trevor O’Brien said the company made a change earlier this year to ensure that search engines like Google and Bing could better access 50,000 popular hashtag pages — pages where Twitter has compiled tweets and information relating to a particular hashtag.

Gee, how ... novel and groundbreaking. I mean, congrats on doing so but it's basically congratulating you on stopping screwing the pooch.

Post Pigeon Geo Assessment Shows Changing Radius Dynamics for SMBs 

+Mike Blumenthal has some seriously interesting data here on how Google is changing the radius of local searches. 

Read These: http://bit.ly/1u1ObrC and http://bit.ly/1u1OgvB

Changing the radius for which local businesses will 'fire' for local searches, based on geography, is huge. Not only that, but any changes to this can have a massive impact on a business. 

What I feel is likely to be coming, and what is hinted at in some of the exchanges on these posts, is that the radius will vary based on the type of business. You might not go very far for a hair dresser but you might go quite a distance for a good plumber.

Reducing Checkout Friction

Typing out shipping/billing info is a pain.  Every typed letter adds friction.  This is why this address field was so great (screenshot below).  I just started typing the first 10 alphabets and an address match appeared on the dropdown menu—

I'm a big fan of autocomplete on address and other form fields. It's imperative to take every opportunity to reduce friction at every turn.

A Marketer's Guide to Google Consumer Surveys

Surveys are a valuable tool for any content marketer. In addition to gaining insights on your target audience, that data can inspire long-form blog posts, white papers, ongoing trend reports, infographics and more.

Or in other words, you get to create the news you want to market. I've been using surveys for dog years and new tools like Google Consumer Surveys just make it that much easier (and quicker) to go from ideation to promotion.

Ending reader comments is a mistake, even for Reuters

The bottom line is that if the discussion and debate and interaction around a news story occurs somewhere else, then soon the readers who are interested in that engagement will start to think of the platform where it occurs as the important part of the relationship — not the site that actually created the content.

This one point by +Mathew Ingram is the essence of why I believe this is incredibly dangerous. It's about marketing - about attention and memory. There are other great points here but this one alone should make you tremble in your boots.

Play Back Any Google Doc's Keystrokes

This is possible because every document written in Google Docs since about May 2010 has a revision history that tracks every change, by every user, with timestamps accurate to the microsecond; these histories are available to anyone with “Edit” permissions; and I have written a piece of software that can find, decode, and rebuild the history for any given document.

This is quite cool. #writing

The Reddit Front Page is Not a Meritocracy

Much to my surprise, I found out that reddit's front pages are not a pure "meritocracy" based on votes, but that rankings depend heavily on subreddits. The subreddits themselves seem to follow a quota system that allocates certain subreddits to specific slots on pages one and two, and also prevents the front page from devolving entirely into animal gifs. As a final kicker, in case it wasn't completely obvious, I learned that links on the front pages of reddit receive a lot of traffic!

Really interesting bit of analysis here that uncovers how Reddit's front page might be engineered.

First Week of Chemo

It hasn't been awful but ... it hasn't been fun either. Seriously fatigued, aching all over and a sour stomach the entire time. But like Rocky, I can take a few punches and still win the match. Feeling a good deal better today and hoping to see continued progress tomorrow.

Day 1 of Chemo

Yesterday was the first day of my chemotherapy regimen. The full diagnosis for those of you interested is Grade 1, Stage IV Follicular Lymphoma, with growths in the mesenteric and retroperitoneal regions (stomach and intestinal areas) and 2.4% involvement in my bone marrow (which is quite low actually.)

Day one consists of a slow drip of Rituxan which is a targeted antigen that seeks out and destroys the CD20 protein which is what is running out of control. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rituximab) 

No issues with the Rituxan (some are allergic or don't tolerate it well) so next time it will be given much faster. Near the end of the day I received Bendamustine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bendamustine) which is the far better drug than the alternative (better effectiveness and far less toxic.)

Very little side effects yesterday with just a little bit of fatigue, mild muscle pain and a throbbing head.  I get a second does of Bendamustine today so I'll be able to finish binge watching the 1st season of The 100. 

So to my lazy cancer I can only say that you've got no chance. I'm keeping this party going and It's time for you to go.

Germany's Top Publisher Bows to Google

Germany's biggest news publisher Axel Springer has scrapped a move to block Google from running snippets of articles from its newspapers, saying that the experiment had caused traffic to its sites to plunge.

Springer said a two-week-old experiment to restrict access by Google to some of its publications had caused web traffic to plunge for these sites, leading it to row back and let Google once again showcase Springer news stories in its search results.

In exchange for being prominently displayed in search results your company gets traffic, which you can then monetize. Hint, you should also be working to ensure that less and less of your traffic comes from search so you're not overly reliant on that source.

Make a Plan That You Can Beat

To the extent the board wants 80% growth  in 2015 and you believe that you can only deliver 30%, it is far better to have that uncomfortable conversation during the planning process in November 2014 (while you are still achieving this year’s plan) than in July 2015, after you’ve missed Q1 and Q2.   (In July, the uncomfortable conversation is more likely to be about your severance package than the aggressiveness of the approved plan.)

Some very sound advice here about managing expectations. Mind you, I like shooting for high goals knowing that if you fall short you've achieved a lot. But that doesn't often work at the top level where a healthy dose of cautious optimism is far more vital.

Social Login Trends Q3 2014

Despite reports of privacy concerns and young people abandoning the network, Facebook’s value to consumers as a social login provider shows no signs of declining. Facebook increased its lead over Google during the past quarter, marking its second consecutive quarter of growth. Yahoo slipped to its lowest share ever, with Twitter picking up momentum in third place.

Google+ made a valiant charge to dethrone Facebook but the momentum is now gone and Facebook is once again pulling away. Yahoo on the other hand is now in nowheresville with Twitter now the third largest platform.

Google Doesn't Think Your Title Tags are Good Enough

It is pretty clear that if you want your title tag to remain unchanged, it's worth making sure that you're staying within the 50-59 character window and that your titles fit with the content of the page. That's not necessarily going to guarantee that it never gets changed in the SERPs but at least you'll have more control over how you're represented in the SERPs.

Nice bit of research here done by +Brian LaFrance and +AuthorityLabs. Keeping your Title tags short and relevant is the best way to ensure you keep the Title tag you want to display.

People Don't Actually Like Creativity

Staw says most people are risk-averse. He refers to them as satisfiers. “As much as we celebrate independence in Western cultures, there is an awful lot of pressure to conform,” he says. Satisfiers avoid stirring things up, even if it means forsaking the truth or rejecting a good idea.

I completely agree and work hard to ensure that I don't fall into that 'satisfiers' group. Nice find +Erica McGillivray.

Deep learning, he explains, better analyzes data describing how people have responded to digital ads in the past and adjust new ad campaigns accordingly. “Deep learning [is] able to handle more signal for better detection of trends in user behavior,” he says. “Serving ads is basically running a recommendation engine, which deep learning does well.”

This is not surprising and it's also what Google has and will continue to perfect as we move forward.

Is this really what Seth Godin meant by permission marketing?

BUT this is the difference – just because I give you my email address, it doesn’t necessarily mean I give you permission to email me. Did I really think I was giving Hubspot permission to put me onto 19 email lists? Absolutely not.

The real linchpin to permission marketing is anticipated. If you didn't anticipate the action of being subscribed to 19 newsletters then that permission has not been granted and the relationship starts poorly - or may never start at all.

For now, it's available as an extension in the Chrome Web Store that replaces the regular bookmark manager, but it will probably become a standard Chrome feature.

The updated bookmark manager includes a new interface, search powered by Google, sharing and automatically generated folders.

"When you bookmark, you can now save an image and note to make your bookmarks more helpful. Also, Google will suggest a folder if it seems like it could be a fit," informs Google.

I'm actually surprised that this hasn't been worked on faster and more often. And more importantly, when will bookmarks be created for sites and pages that I frequent often and or frequent often but search for every time instead of going directly there.

How To Track Performance and ROI of Structured Data

Through applying semantic markup to our site, we've embedded an incredibly rich layer of meaningful data in our code. Too often, SEOs like us forget that the idea of the semantic web extends far beyond search engines. It's easy to add schema.org entity markup to our pages and and think that it ends when search engines pick up on it. But that can't be the end of the story! Don't let the search engines have all the fun; we can use that data, too.

Even worse, what if the mark-up exists but it isn't being rendered by Google as a rich snippet? Strangely, the test that might make the most sense to many would be 'with structured data vs without structured data'. I don't like that test since I view structured data as a default. Use it or be left in the dust. 

But perhaps someone else sees a slam dunk win on using this data to make actionable business decisions.

Microsoft Fires Global Advertising Sales Team

The layoffs — within the Microsoft Advertising division — are expected to affect staff members across the US, UK, and other global offices, charged with selling advertising space across Microsoft's MSN, Bing, Xbox, Outlook, Skype, and Windows 8 properties.

However, the closure of Microsoft Advertising has been speculated on for some time. The company had just a tiny 2.45% share of the global display advertising market last year, according to eMarketer. The market is dominated by Google (with a 31.92% share and Facebook, with a 5.82% share.)

The scary question is whether (or perhaps when) Microsoft will sell-off money losing Bing. #microsoft   #search

Andy Rubin Leaves Google

When Rubin stopped running Android, he stayed at Google to work on robotics, a longtime passion of his. Jessica Lessin at The Information tweeted that Rubin wanted more freedom for his robotics group. She said he wanted a structure like that of Calico, which is the anti-aging company Google has started. 

Our guess is that Page views robotics as something he understands better and considers core to Google — and therefore would not want to give it the same independence.

Robotics is a core strategic focus for Google so the reporting here feels correct. #google   #robotics

My group was affected, and while I have natural concerns for my own future, I am now faced with saying goodbye to some talented friends and coworkers.

Facebook Offers Life Raft Made of Sugar

The social network has been eager to help publishers do a better job of servicing readers in the News Feed, including improving their approach to mobile in a variety of ways. One possibility it mentioned was for publishers to simply send pages to Facebook that would live inside the social network’s mobile app and be hosted by its servers; that way, they would load quickly with ads that Facebook sells. The revenue would be shared.

Yeah, just send your content to be hosted by Facebook. Nothing bad could come of that, right?

Our Numbered Days: The Evolution of the Area Code

All-Number Calling—it is clear in hindsight—stood in the minds of many for the age of the impersonal, when people live in huge apartment buildings, travel on eight-lane highways and identify themselves in many places—bank, job, income tax return, credit agency—by numbers.

A really interesting article in both the technology used to go from human to automated dialing to the psychological impact of that change as well as the assignment (and changes to) area codes.
