Three from Search Engine Roundtable.

1. Google says shorter URLs are better.
2. Google says links in footers or sitewides aren’t given much weight.
3. Google says title tags are ranking factors, but not worth rewriting for ‘better’ results.

Bruce Clay: Is Google about to Kill Its Penguin? Is It the End of Link Spam?

This tactic was so effective that it literally changed the face of the Internet. Blog spam, comment spam, scraper sites – none of them would exist if Google’s algorithm didn’t, for quite some time, reward the acquisition of links (regardless of source) with higher rankings.

Re/code: Autonomous Cars and Their Ethical Conundrum.

one can imagine many types of ethical issues that a self-driving car will encounter. Understanding how the engineers, philosophers and ethicists design the final algorithms that sit at the heart of these autonomous vehicles will be very important to the success of these automobiles.” Denise McCluggage and I spent an afternoon debating these permutations, and came up with no solid Asimov-style ‘robot rules’ for driverless cars. I joked that perhaps a driverless car might contain a charge to blow itself up, in an answerless situation. I received a snort in response.

Later: I’ve got it! EJECTION SEATS.

AppleInsider: DuckDuckGo takes shots at Google, says tracking isn’t needed to profit.

Most of the money is still made without tracking people by showing you ads based on your keyword, i.e. type in car and get a car ad. These ads are lucrative because people have buying intent. All that tracking is for the rest of the Internet without this search intent, and that’s why you’re tracked across the Internet with those same ads.

SER: Google Recommends Keeping 301 Redirects In Place For One Year Or Longer.

... if you’ve moved your site, and we have been able to recognize that your site has moved, which might take maybe a half a year, maybe a year or so, then at some point, you can take that redirect down. The thing to keep in mind there is that if there are still links to the old version of the URL, then chance are, we might show the old URL too, if you remove the 301 redirect.” What a hot mess.
