+Gary Illyes went on to say that he would be running an internal test to flag sites with broken security certificates since this happens with nearly half the secure sites Google sees. Depending on how the experiment goes, Google may decide to publicly flag sites with broken security certificates as potentially unsafe.
Webmaster Trends Analyst Gary Illyes said the most searched term on Google is "Google" itself during SMX West session.

Australia’s largest radio company Southern Cross Austereo gives condoms to its staff in Perth to discourage them from having babies, an executive has revealed. “Thirty five per cent of my staff at the moment are on a maternity leave contract or maternity leave and that’s significant.”

Oh Google messing up adwords results based on what structured content you know or assume....
 
Introducing dynamic structured snippets

When making purchases online, the more information people have, the better decisions they can make. That’s why last year Google introduced Structured Snippets as part of organic search, a feature that incorporates relevant snippets of information into organic search results [http://goo.gl/5ukSGk].

Today, we’re introducing dynamic structured snippets: additional text that automatically shows with your search ads, highlighting industry-specific, structured information about your products and services. Whether it’s a list of shoe brands or the number of nonstop flights to New York City, this automated extension gives your customers a better sense of what to expect on your website before they click on your ad.

Dynamic structured snippets, like seller ratings, add value to your ads while saving you time and simplifying campaign management. They show for retail, hotel, and flight searches, with additional verticals to follow later this year. While automated extensions typically boost the average performance of an ad and are also a factor in Ad Rank [http://goo.gl/jJDnvC], advertisers have the option to disable [http://goo.gl/iKLmuk]. You can learn more about how ad extensions can improve ad performance in our best practice guide Consider, Convince, Convert [http://goo.gl/bHTeBN].

For more information about dynamic structured snippets, see the AdWords Help Center [http://goo.gl/wEKSJ3].

To make audience data even more meaningful for businesses, we’re updating the way Page likes are counted by removing memorialized and voluntarily deactivated accounts from Pages’ like counts.
Businesses rely on Facebook Page insights to understand their audience. Our latest update to Page like counts ensures insights are up-to-date and meaningful for businesses.

Hmmm interesting open insight into +Moz and how mobile is not a significant channel for them.
 
Percent of Mobile Usage of Moz.com

+Cyrus Shepard kindly responded to an email I sent on a thread about our web traffic. I thought it would be interesting to share more broadly. We're planning to roll out responsive design in the next few months, but I'm actually hoping we do it after April 21st so we can see whether and what the hit looks like from Google on the parts of our site that aren't yet responsive (i.e. most of it).

Anyone else noticing on Android Twitter is showing Web previews for links but testing two different formats. This could drastically increase CTR on Tweets...

Story
Tagline
I share a lot of content and ideas that drive me into rants but more often inspire or educate.
Introduction
I play in the digital space and have been doing it since 1994 so I have a good understanding and interest in most topics so please engage with me and feel free to share and comment on anything I share via this channel. 

I started out in this industry in 2008 under The Lost Agency as a web analyst, since I started back then have worked with several web development companies and several marketing agencies. I've worked on projects focused on Google AdWords, Google Analytics, WebTrends, Facebook Advertising, Twitter Campaigns, Social Media Strategies, SEO Audits, SEO Technical Projects, Link Building Projects and Digital Strategies.

I usually try and blog over at Lost Press Marketing which is my main site but also can be found writing for several industry blogs when I get a good topic and some headspace to write a decent post. I also love promoting conferences and events and working to increase the number of interviews done with industry players.

I'm now based in Amsterdam working for Marktplaats which is part of ebay classifieds group.  Marktplaats is a leading Dutch classifieds platform for Autos, HolidaysServices, Daily Deals, Outlets and more!

I also work with the awesome and highly social team of 2dehands.be and 2ememain.be which is the largest free classifieds site in Belgium.

Also can you please ensure that you have some details on your profile and some links to your projects or social profiles so I can add you to the right circle. I don't add many people to my circles so please don't feel offended if we engage and I don't add you back.
Bragging rights
I started my own marketing agency, co-authored a book on marketing.... I've worked with some big brands and done some amazing SEO projects and now working in Europe for ebay classifieds group.

This was a fairly decent location for the recent Friends of Search event, the conference halls were a decent size and there was a reasonable amount of networking space. There is a free cloak room in the basement area along with toilets, the only problem you might have is there is only one small lift so expect to use the stairs a bit to get between the floors. There is also some cool art scattered around the floors that you can discover.

If you are looking for specific health products or a bit of a health nut then this is the perfect place for you. They have a great range of vitamins, and some really yummy treats from unique chocolates, nuts and dried fruits. If they don't have something you are looking for you can ask their staff as they might be able to order it in or find it at one of their other locations.

A really good cafe if you want to relax and get some work done, they have decent WiFi and the staff are helpful. It's worth knowing that you need to bring cash as they don't take Pin/Card. But they have some amazing Brazilian cheese balls (Pão de Quejo) which are epic and go great with a coffee or hot chocolate. If you love your coffee consider the caffee Lungo, if you order a hot chocolate they serve it with milk foam and a chocolate cup that melts into the milk which is quite nice.

I stayed here back in November 2013 and it was not the best hostel I stayed at and was a little disappointed that they didn't provide towels when booking a private room, I didn't pick the hostel for anything more than a place to sleep the night. The room was also quite cold and I ended up getting sick after staying here which wasn't helped by the temperature of the room. Also a little expensive compared to other hostels I've stayed at and next time I'll probably just opt for a cheap hotel room and have a nicer stay.

Obviously they have a pretty decent range of Adidas products in this store but sadly most of them don't have any prices.... it seems to be more of a product demonstration store than a typical retain store. But if you love Adidas it can be a really good place to checkout what new items they have or if you are seeking unique or limited edition Adidas products.

An interesting and quirky cafe, their cake serving sizes were fairly good value, it appears they have also fixed the location marker on Google Maps as previously it was a little hard to find as the location was wrong.
