In my previous life as a creative director in radio, one of the biggest obstacles I had to overcome with advertisers was their preconceived notion of what a radio commercial should sound like. Decades of listening to the radio conditioned many small business owners to believe all commercials should …

Opt-in migration now available

The opt-in migration tool, called Migration assistant is now available in the UI.

1) Navigate to tagmanager.google.com. The Migration assistant should pop-up instantly
2) If you choose to close the assistant, you can find it next to the Legacy Accounts header in the Accounts screen
3) Once you click Launch Assistant, a new screen is shown, where you can select the accounts you want to migrate
4) After selecting accounts and clicking Migrate, you will have submitted the accounts for migration, and the process will begin

It takes some hours to complete, so don't expect immediate results.

The migration preserves your container ID, so no changes to the container snippet need to be made.

Also, legacy V1 features like Tag-based auto-event tracking is preserved in V2, so everything should work as before. You might still want to get started on activating V2-specific features (such as Trigger-based auto-event tracking), so that you can leverage all the cool new stuff that's coming in as quick as possible.

Get migratin'!

Well said Ashley, I suspect this will just be the beginning and a well squeezed tactic by under pressure sales teams.
 
With all the uproarious posts about mobile friendliness going 'round I thought I'd chime in to fight against unnecessary drama and not-cool-marketing. 

See, big changes tend to bring out bad behavior from certain companies who wish to capitalize off of people's fear and lack of understanding. Today someone shared with me a good example of naughty behavior. I'm looking at you +GTxcel

First:
+ No, Google won't remove your website from search if you're not mobile friendly this month. Your email to who knows how many people was a flat out lie. This is not "marketing". 
+ From GTxcel's blog "there is a strong possibility you will be penalized in desktop results as well." >> this is false. The update affects mobile queries and isn't a penalty at all; it's just bubbling up sites that are more likely to have a better user-experience. 
+ When working to become mobile friendly, you have three options: responsive, dynamic serving or separate URLs. Not just responsive.

Second: It is a big shift that's coming - but not one that requires this kind of behavior. There are great opportunities for everyone out there to do better and create good experiences for users regardless of device. So be cool. Market nicely.

Shame really. A follow up post with corrections would be a good move.

About those 20 billion triples

Web Data Commons has released its RDFa, Microdata, and Microformat data sets extracted from the December 2014 Common Crawl, which found "found structured data within 620 million HTML pages out of the 2.01 billion pages contained in the crawl (30%)."
http://bit.ly/1xXzCuM

This is up from the 26% November 2013 data set.
http://bit.ly/1kXpYix

I've shown some comparative statistics in the image attached to this post.  I've highlighted some microdata statistics as kind of a proxy for schema.org use, but of course these triples could also be marked up using other syntaxes.

I know that there's statistical problems with using these data sets as a means of assessing adoption and/or relative use of the formats and entities enumerated, but once those shortcomings have been acknowledged I think there's trending data of interest to be uncovered.

For example, it makes sense that schema.org/Product is ascendant, given that it's now the go-to entity employed in enterprise ecommerce structured data markup.  Or to see the relative appearance of microformats waning, as the least flexible of the formats listed (though microformats are very much hanging in there).

Interesting to know if future extractions might look at JSON-LD data as well - I invite +Chris Bizer to comment if he cares to.
