Bonny - but those look like the garden "squills" to me - I prefer the true wild bluebells (that are only just showing buds this side of the country).

+Gill S are you watching this? :)
 
This July, Yorkshire National Trust will play world stage for the opening of the world's greatest cycle race (Tour de France)! Get right in the heart of the action staying at one of our pop-up campsites along the route between 3 - 6 July. Go on, come and cheer the cyclists along with us. http://bit.ly/OowWRq

And for non-cycling fans, we think the image below is persuasive enough to make you want to visit the Yorkshire Dales anyway…Tempted?

I don't post SEO/search/webmaster videos here very often, because this is my personal G+ account, but this is an in-depth (8 minute!) video that explains some of the criteria we use when we decide whether a link is paid or not. Roughly, here are some of the important questions we ask:
- What is the value of the gift, product, or service?
- How close is the gift, product, or service to actual money?
- Is it an outright gift or a loan?
- Who is the intended audience?
- Is the intent of the gift to get links?
- Would the gift be a surprise to third party?

My guess is that anyone who has been involved with SEO for a while would intuitively understand these criteria, but it's helpful to clarify some of the questions we ask. Bear in mind that well over 99% of the time, paid links that pass PageRank are abundantly clear--because actual money is changing hands--plus we reserve the right to adapt our criteria when we see new types of spam or abuse.

Forget all your cat shots on Instagram - This is much more cute!

... and there's also a cool lens in it too. What else could you ask for? ;)

If you're a data-driven SEO (or just love to see how your site's indexed), you'll love this change :). In Webmaster Tools, we've now made it possible to differentiate the "index status" information for http / https as well as for subdirectories.

Happy 24th anniversary to the Hubble Space Telescope! This colorful mosaic of a small portion of the Monkey Head Nebula unveils a collection of carved knots of gas and dust silhouetted against glowing gas. The cloud is sculpted by ultraviolet light eating into the cool hydrogen gas.

Could climate change unleash deadly viruses that have been dormant for thousands of years? It is possible according to a group of French scientists who have, for the first time, revived an ancient virus that had been buried in Siberian permafrost for 30,000 years. This particular virus poses no threat to humans or animals but it raises the possibility that other viruses could re-emerge as the ground becomes exposed.

Introduction
I am trying to apply mathematical modeling to SEO (search engine optimization), the art of building websites so they are easy to be found in search results. Search engine algorithms are not that easy to understand, because they have the difficult goal of mapping the huge world wide web to ten snippets in search results that best match what we are looking for. It is fascinating that the best way to be understood by search engines is to build a web page with accessibility guidelines in mind, thinking of how to best present a page to someone with vision or hearing difficulties.
