Funny how prevalent a Cards inteface is becomingon the mobile Web.
 
How Cards Are Quietly Transforming The Web 

It's a really fascinating development the way "Cards" are being used in both the online and online mobile space today. 

You don't have to be a Google Now user to see all the places they are starting to pop up. 
Nearly three hours a day. That’s the average amount of time you and I spent on our phones every day in 2014. Our dependency on mobile devices for..

If the 'new SEO' relies on long-tail keywords, then you need a good SEO copywriter to generate high quality content!
Thanks to Joshua Steimle for the article.As the owner of a digital lead generation firm perhaps there is no question I get asked more than “How long will it take me to get ranked #1 for my keywords?” The answer isn’t so simple, because the question itself is misguided (no offense). The question is born from an understanding of SEO that was once the reality but no longer is.New SEO vs Old SEOOnce upon a time the strategy was to identify those keyw...

Google made me share this.
 
Oh there goes my thought I raised a while back - the internet coming to life. Google is God resonates quite nicely lol

But seriously, should we fear Artificial Intelligence?

Interesting to see a large scale test like this show how often direct answers are showing up in Google Search results.
In a test of over 850,000 search queries, we found that Google offered some form of rich answer (AKA a knowledge box) 19+% of the time. If you are not familia

Worth thinking about.
 
"Use URIs as names for statements about data"

Great piece from +Bernard Vatant on the word "things" as used by TBL in his famous articulation of the the first principle of linked data design, "Use URIs as names for things." (http://bit.ly/164TwCl)

What's a "thing"?  What's the onotological implications of Google's glib use of "thing", "entity" and "object" as de facto synonyms?

TL;DR > There are actually no "facts" in the Google Knowledge Base. :)

Thanks for taking the time to put together this interesting and informative exposition Bernard!
A few days ago in the comments of this post by +Teodora Petkova on Google+ I promised to +Aaron Bradley a post explaining why I am uneasy with the reference to things in Tim Berners-Lee's reference document defining (in 2006)...

Deep linking for Apps  powerful stuff
 
For nearly two decades, Google has been helping web developers connect their content to their users. But in today’s world, information can be found in apps, as well as websites. That’s why, today, we’re announcing Google Search for Developers, a single destination for information about all of the APIs that you can use to integrate with Search. To learn more, watch the video with +Jarek Wilkiewicz below, and visit https://g.co/developersearch to get started.

HoW Google Finds Patterns to Extract Data from on the Web

A patent from Google explores how Google extracts attribute and values for objects it finds on the Web, making the Web into a database that fuels Google's knowledge Graph.
A pantent granted to Google this past fall explores how the search engine looks for patterns on Web pages to use to find facts on the Web to fill up Google’s data repository (Knowledge Base). I recently wrote a series of posts about Google collecting data to enable them to answer Direct answers. starting with … Continue reading Google on Crawling the Web of Data →

A perfect illustration of the dangerous drift towards "Google knows best" I'm pointing at in my today blog post. A silly statement does not become true because it's been copy-pasted a hundred times.

Is Google Tracking your songs listened to and Movies Watched?

Is Google tracking which songs you listen to, and movies you watch? - This new foreign  patent application says it might. It points out a "media consumption history, Much like a browsing or search history that Google has been collecting on people for years. You can search for entities that appear in those songs or movies and ask who they are, and what else they've been in, and when you last heard or watched something by them. http://www.seobythesea.com/2015/02/google-media-consumption-history-patent-filed/
Imagine Google collecting data about media that you watched and listened to and could perform queries about entities participating in that media

Story
Tagline
Interested in seo, search engines, searchers' behaviors, the future of search, the semantic web, music, the environment, and how the Web works.
Introduction
I grew up in New Jersey and Ohio, studied at the University of Delaware and Widener University School of Law, and spend a lot of my time either doing SEO, looking at the code behind web pages or with my nose buried in a search-related patent.

I previously lived in the Virginia Piedmont, about 50 miles west of Washington, DC in a county filled with horse pastures and farm fields. I am presently relocating to Carlsbad, California.

I enjoy reading fiction and science fiction, listening to most types of music, delving into  the history behind small towns, out door photography, and exploring nature.

I am the Founder and President of SEO by the Sea, and I like working with people with their web sites, to help make them easier to find, and easier to use.

Some posts I've written in the past that focus upon analyzing patents from the search engines:

I am the Director of Search Marketing at Go Fish Digital, on Google+ at Go Fish Digital

I am often called a patent analyst or patent expert or patent guru by many people and bloggers and media writers, but my job is not to analyze or interpret patents. I do that for fun, and to learn things about search engines and search that I otherwise couldn't.

I consider it performing due diligence and feeding my curiosity - the information behind many business models and algorithms that search engines use are being made public, and it's worth taking the time and making the effort to read through them and trying to understand what they say and why they say it.

The Afro-American Historic Association of Fauquier County shows off images and artifacts from local people and places in the area. The exhibits stretch from Egypt to the election of President Obama. To me, the most powerful of the exhibit items is the Slave Cage outside of the museum from the 1850s, which is haunting.

A great place to get local and healthy foods and produce, including farm fresh meats, cheeses, and many other products straight from the farm itself. I enjoy shopping at the farm market because I find myself wanting to sample everything I've purchased as soon as I get home and start unpacking my bags (sometimes I don't wait that long). The people who work there clearly love the place, and I'm usually asked more than once if I need any help, or have any questions. The store also includes lots of baked goods at great prices, honey and salsas and chutneys and many types of pickled produce from local manufacturers. They also carry organic goods and gluten-free mixes

The best BBQ I've ever eaten was in a roofless wooden shack just outside of Dallas, serving ribs and pulled pork, brisket and chorizos, fried okra and cornbread, and more. It's a long way from Virginia to Dallas.Fortunately, the second best BBQ I've eaten is about a six minute drive away, at a truck stop down the Seminole trail. If you like BBQ, and you get a chance to stop by, you definitely should. It's not fine dining, but it's definitely good eating.I have half my meal left, and if I wasn't full, it might not last too long. Other reviews I've read have pointed out the location, decor, and atmosphere of the truck stop, and if you drive past, it might not be a place you'd consider stopping at. If you like ribs or pulled pork though, that would be a mistake.
