Must be bad for the text to code ratio as well, if that's still a factor. It seems wp sites have a good bit of HTML to start with. Thanks for the info!

Teaching Search to Your Audience

Dan Russell teaches people how to search on his blog; in his latest post, he covers some really important lessons along the way.

I taught a class on internet literacy to some school teachers at a local community college; and it can be challenging getting them to think about how to search and how to find good queries.  This is something that you need to think about and keep in mind when you optimize a website for SEO - some of the audience you are trying to reach may have little experience actually searching for the kinds of things that you might offer on a web site - how do you reach those people?

His Company was acquired to help introduce Google to the Knowledge Web, and he brought us Freebase and the Knowledge Base.  He has now taken over from Amit Singhal as the head of search at Google
As Google's head of artificial intelligence takes charge of search, deep learning is already changing the way Googling works.

This is good to see happening.
Google is now supporting ratings and reviews in JSON-LD format in the Google search results. It is supporting JSON-LD for both the search results and review listings shown in the knowledge panel. Ramesh Singh sent me these screenshots where they were testing JSON-LD implementation on their site to test when Google would begin picking up …

An In-Depth look at What Page and Brin have been up to at Alphabet.
Google has always been light-years ahead of its time, thanks to its unconventional co-founders. They're shaking things up, again.

Deep Mind is back to playing arcade games to do more deep learning, with a Doom-like labyrinth styled game.
The artificial intelligence firm has come up with a computer learning technique that requires less processing power, allowing it to reach new heights

Google was granted a patent involving building Entity Recognition Training Models, from sources such as knowledge bases and news sources to help fuel search results and knowledge panels within those results.
A Google patent describes an Entity Recognition approach where it may recognize entities from a training set of sentences where those entities appear..

Be careful, when that locksmith on Google Maps is really just a Lead generation company.
Locksmiths have been suing Google in hopes of getting the fake addresses off the site, but so far no dice.

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 located in 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.
