Running another test. If you'd like to help out, that's great, but you can also feel free to ignore this :-)

http://moz.com/rand/enchiridion-hoypoloi/ - I'm trying to test indexing speed and whether a Google+ share can get something indexed all by itself (and how long that takes). Yesterday I tested on Twitter and the URL took a little over 12 hours to get indexed (and I can't be sure it came directly through Twitter). Will be interesting to see what happens with G+.

Please DON'T share this URL anywhere but on G+ - no URL shorteners, no other social media, no links, etc. Thank you!

#MozCast  Update -- Had an interesting question from +Tom Anthony - with the new TLDs rolling out, how many are currently appearing in top ranking spots? I (+Pete Meyers) took a look at page 1 Google results for 10,000 queries, which yielded 93,315 URLs, and here's how the TLDs broke down by rank/percentage.

I've included multi-part "TLDs", like .co.uk, .il.us, etc. as distinct TLDs. Please note that this is not a measure of the ranking potential of these TLDs - just of how they currently appear in SERP real estate. All searches were conducted from US IPs (so, this is not indicative of international results). The phrases in this set represent a variety of lengths and volumes, but are in English and tend to be commercial in nature. All TLDs in the list occurred at least one - some percentages were just too small to display at two decimal places.

TLDs By Rank/Percentage

(1) .com - 80.33%
(2) .org - 11.89%

Londoners enjoying the sun, 1952

If you were looking to enjoy the weather on a beach, Tower Bridge probably isn't the first place you'd head to, right? We love this photograph from the +Museum of London of Londoners making the most of the weather on Tower beach!

Mozilla CEO ousted over a $1,000 donation he made in 2008 in support of the ballot measure to ban gay marriage. Freedom of expression?
And the inevitable conclusion surrounding the controversy over his donation to an anti-gay initiative.

Story
Tagline
I have been a photographer for more than 25 years. Over time, my photography has evolved and developed into a need to tell stories that move and uplift. Looking back, it was perhaps inevitable that I would fulfil this need and find my niche as a wedding photographer. Every love story is unique; every wedding - with its central and supporting cast - an unforgettable tale of hope, emotion and joy. It’s a privilege to be the person who gets to tell that story.

We attended a rugby fixture here, which turned out to have the largest crowd at a Rugby Union match ever, just under 84,000. It's been a while since I visited the stadium and so this was my first experience with the rebuilt Wembley. Excellent. Not only has the tube station been rebuilt to accommodate the huge crowds that use it, but every facet has been expanded and re-designed with the fan in mind. Friendly helpful staff and even escalators to get up into 'the gods'. The in-house food is expensive as you'd expect, but actually pretty good quality. No cans etc allowed in. Exit was just as seamless and we were back at the car in Stanmore in about 35 mins from leaving the stadium. What more could you want?

Good spacious and clean apartment. Regrettably the staff weren't very helpful and didn't really know their way around the building, which is quite large and has more than 1 wing.

Visited the David Bailey exhibition Stardust today. Superb access and when paying the £14.50 entry fee you have to remember that everything else is free. The best portrait gallery in the world but steer clear of the expensive cafe and shop unless you see it as your duty to support this institution. The Bailey exhibition is over several rooms and broadly split into the phases of his photographic life. The classic images of Jean Shrimpton, the Stones, Michael Cain and Kate Moss where highlights for me.

Medium sized Victorian gin palace. Haunt of tourists, locals, football fans and emergency service workers de-stressing. All human life is here. Good quality bar food and service with a smile. Beware the cost of a round though, London west end prices.

Fast and fresh the sushi here is excellent. All the expected dishes are present and I say try the sashimi. The staff are under a lot of pressure here, especially at lunchtime, but always give service with a smile. Good effort guys!

Hugely fashionable cycle clothing shop and cafe. Packed full of cycling fashionistas who are prepared to pay big bucks to look cool. The clothing is extremely high quality, the cafe well stocked and the tv has live cycling when on. The coffee isn't bad but nothing to write home about.

One for the boys no matter what age. 9 deck WWII battle cruiser. Excellent knowledgeable tours make the history lessons complete. Good place to visit either on the Southbank tour or to/from Tower Bridge
