SERoundtable: Google’s Mobile Friendly Algorithm Is Yes Or No - No Degrees Of Mobile Friendliness?

But as we mentioned earlier, there are over 200 different factors that determine ranking so we can’t just give you a yes or no answer with this. It depends on all the other attributes of your site, weather it is providing a great user experience or not. That is the same with desktop search, not isolated with mobile search.” In other words, Google is not going to divert the ‘bum-rush’ to get mobile-compatible, because it benefits themselves. But it may not be as critical as the knee-jerk folks are panicking over.

SER: Google Mobile Friendly Test vs Webmaster Tools Mobile Usability Reports.

Timely.  It seems April 21 is the date Google will start using mobile-friendliness as a ranking metric (of 200-some metrics, so don’t panic).

SER: Google Discontinuing Original Google Webmaster Tools API, Killing Keyword Data.

FYI. “... you can no longer get keyword data for the content report from the Google Webmaster Tools API starting on April 20, 2015. Google did say there are other ways to get the data in Python, Java, and OACurl but many of the free and popular keyword tools use the API.

DedaSys Journal: Alarming number of spam false positives in Gmail.

I also noticed a bit a month or so ago.  Those that were being caught - and they were vitally important - I whitelisted with a filter to guarantee they wouldn’t be grabbed again. I just peeped in this second, about ten items I would have preferred to see, but weren’t earthshattering if I lost them. I check the spam folder about once a month or ~500 pieces, whichever comes first, because I never do trust algorithms 100%.

Dither and Bicker: RIP Google Analytics, Casualty of Spam.

Spammers have figured out that its pretty easy to spoof Google Analytics traffic. When Google Analytics logs traffic on your site it uses a simple key. Since all tracking is handled through JavaScript on the client side, there’s no real checks to ensure that your key is run off your site. They can make requests directly to Google from their domains using your unique key and their bogus traffic shows up in your reports.” Of interest.

naked cap: Google Further Crapifies Search, Exploiting Both Users and Advertisers.

I never use Google to shop. I look for products directly, after doing extensive research. Once that happens, I go direct to my favorite outlets to compare prices. I never click on affiliate links on review sites, or on Google itself. So Google is designing away from me, I guess. I still get best results to my arcane queries via Google. Make the interface too cluttered, I’ll take off.

Reuters: Germany’s top publisher bows to Google in news licensing row.

Interesting. I assume the publisher makes money from ad-clicks? There’s no connection made here between visitors from Google and actual revenue.  I’d rather see *that* impact.

Re/Code: Inbox Comes Close to Mastering Email.

I finally got access to Inbox a while ago. It seems very nice, but it does adopt a different philosophy than standard Gmail. If you have an intricate construction of labels, beware. It will hide important unread emails until you figure out ‘bundles’. If I chucked all my labels, it might workflow better. That’s a big consideration at this point, and won’t be taken lightly.
