Talk on Google Tables via +Martin Hepp
I am sure you have seen Google Tables:

It seems to be mainly based on information extraction from tables in HTML.

Has anybody observed results that are extracted from markup in JSON-LD?

That would be a strong reason to add markup for multi-item pages.

The interesting thing with Google Tables is that I have seen some of the tables used in organic search results.

Happy to report that the Google Merchant Center now supports and recommends JSON-LD for Schema Markup.

"We recommend you add new structured data markup with JSON-LD, separate from your HTML markup, especially if your product data contains variants."

New product rich snippets in the Google Image Search results via +Aaron Bradley and +Kara Eccleston
Google officially unveils "Similar items" in image search

Following the introduction, in late 2016, of product information in image SERPs, Google has now extended the display of such item to display product information about similar items.

The “Similar items” feature is designed to help users find products they love in photos that inspire them on Google Image Search. Using machine vision technology, the Similar items feature identifies products in lifestyle images and displays matching products to the user.

The requirements for appearing as a "Similar item" are the same as those for generating product information in image search results: prescribed markup, including an image reference (

This was observed as a test recently, and to a certain extent Google's announcement is after the fact, as they refer to the feature as "recently launched". Here's a post by +Kara Eccleston of PMG describing the feature as spotted on 31 March 2017:

Yes, the timeline of Structured Data events has been updated. :)

Surviving the machine revolution: how to become the digital marketer of the future

Normally I don't tend to share a lot of marketing related resources (after all, I'm #ThatMarkupGuy) but after having seen +Jono Alderson's presentation at Holland's biggest Digital Marketing convention, Friends of Search, I couldn't resist sharing his slide deck.

During what was the most info packed 40 minute presentation I've seen in a very long time (delivered at a speed that shouldn't be humanly possible) he explained exceptionally wel how both on- and offline marketplaces are evolving at an exponentially increasing velocity.

A presentation that should be wake-up call for anybody that isn't already busy trying to adapt to the new global reality.

I'll even go as far as to say that if you've still got trouble coming to grips with how fast global markets are changing you should find out if Jono will be giving this presentation somewhere else. And if so, book yourself a ticket to go listen to him.
