Here's another neat use of the Search Analytics API: download and process the data in R (a programming language often used for statistical analysis).

Here's an example of how query data could influence search rankings. It was noted by +Will Critchlow that Apple is already ranking #1 for "watch". On the surface it seems like this may have happened really quickly, and Will is right to question if it's what searches want ranking #1. But in fact [apple watch] gets FIVE times the amount of searches as just "watch" - and I believe Google is ranking Apple #1 for watch because of this. Google can associate "Apple" the brand with "watch" the product category pretty confidently What do you think?

Yeah, I've already seen black hat SEO schemes to game this for a few bucks. Search and click-farms basically.

Site Speed & Performance  - 
 
Does anyone know what exactly "time spent downloading a page" in "Crawl Stats" is measuring? Had a client lately who's analytics page speed got much slower but TSDAP (time spent downloading a page) was flat or improved. I'm going to suspect a hazy guess GA is reporting how long all the elements take to load in the browser and TSDAP is reporting something closer to server response time?

Four Rules For Tearing Apart Your Client's Link "Wish List"

Often times clients will give you their link "wish list" - sites they want links from - just because they think it will help rankings. Sometimes our job is to help them refine that list and help them prioritize their efforts. 

Learn the four steps I take to determine if it's worth getting a link from a particular site. They do NOT have to do with domain authority or link juice!!

Tools Mentioned:
- Open Site Explorer by +Moz 
- +SEMrush 
- Google.com
- AdWords Keyword Tool

Anyone know when submitting a URL to the index with “fetch as googlebot”, do you use the hashbang or escaped fragment version?

Thanks!

+John Mueller thanks! in this case the escaped fragments seem to be chosen over hashbang -  but it's ok as long it's one or the other?
